It has been a busy few weeks for Private Kaylin Neva. In between angling for a promotion, sharing her room with the last living female Dragon, and dealing with more refugees than anyone knew what to do with, the unusual egg she'd been given began to hatch. Actually, that turned out to be lucky, because it absorbed the energy from the bomb that went off in her quarters.
So now might be the perfect time to leave Elantra and journey to the West March with the Barrani. If not for the disappearances of citizens in the fief of Tiamaris - disappearances traced to the very Barrani Kaylin is about to be traveling with....

The worst thing about cast in Peril was where are the characters we all know and love. who want's to hear about stick up their a**barrani. Who thinks all himans or mortals or slightly above animals in the heirarchy. I thing the'yr about to get a big suprise. And Yea! Kaylin finally lit the dang candle and there wasn't a party! WTf! I really like the little dragom Familiar though.
Seven out of seven this is my least favorite book in the series
yes she's great in the cast in series books.
absolutely if it started from the beginning of the series
I find the clueless character of Kaylin charming as she moves through a world she doesn't understand like a meandering stream that somehow finds its way regardless of her ignorance . We discover this dream like world of the fantastic in her company since like her we don't have a clue as to where we are going but it sure is fun getting there.
I love books. hate reviewing books because I hate reiterating what many other's have said. I hate spoiling a review.
Have and will again. the series is wonderful. involving and evolving.
Marcus was only in the beginning. Drat. But Teela is quite funny when she isn't angry.
I love her performances of the Cast In books. Her continued dramatic performance of Teela is rich and evocative.
buy them all.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I would recommend this audiobook because it is entertaining and hold a persons interest.
I know of no book to compare.
Khristine Hvam's performance was sublime in the way it brought the characters to mind so you could picture each in your mind.
ReBirth of a nation!
This book (Cast in Peril - Bk 8) is a good place to enter a well developed series. If you are looking for an excellent and absorbing fantasy adventure, it is worth a credit.
Sagara's story is well written within a complex and conflicted world that is populated with layered characters you enjoy discovering. The occasional magic seems credible, novel and consistent. But be warned, if this is your first book in the series, you may need to listen to the first 45 minutes a couple of times in order to get enough back story references to follow the tale in context.
Another quick way to get up to speed is to purchase Sagara's 4.5 hour $3.46 novella titled: Cast In Moonlight, which is labeled Bk # 6.5, but really could be called Bk. Zero. It introduces the world and brings most of the central characters together as they encounter the heroine as a tough unpolished teenager. (Bk 1 apparently is not the best of the 9 books to date, but sets the stage for book 2 which often gets 5s across the board.). Either approach will let you enjoy Cast in Peril and by the middle, you will be in complete sympathy with the adventurous heroine. At the conclusion of Cast in Peril, you will be agonizing over whether to just buy the whole lot and listen to 120+ hours, or to snag the complete set of books slowly over time via Audible promotions. But either way, you probably will be intrigued and want more time with these characters.
I wish we could give 4.5 scores to convey my feeling that the writing this time was very close to as good as fantasy stories can get. In addition, the stories in this series have been blessed with a narrator who seems perfectly tuned to the author's intent: she brings the characters to life with distinctive voices while infusing the entirety with a pace and mood that makes her invisible as the story advances. In this case, the combination comes together so well, the package deserves 5 stars.
I would revisit the series in a couple of years after my memory fades. But for now I am satisfied with what I've heard
Kaylin, of course. As she matures, I hope she doesn't lose her sense of self
She is an awesome narrator. She flows smoothly from one character to another. But Sevrin is supposed to be a tough guy. I'd like his voice to be deeper.
I'm looking forward to the next (and future) installments.
This was my favorite book in the series, truly enjoyed the whole series and look forward to book 7.
I have recommended this series to my niece. She is also thrilled.
The new Hawk is an interesting mix of street-smarts and intelligence.
The sargent's voice is awesome.
I would have listened to this in 1 sitting if I didn't have to sleep.
This is only half a book... a very good half a book granted. The writing and the performer are still excellent. It could have been part one of a two part set, but they didn't warn the editor or the author it seems and it feels like the story just end at the end of act 2.
It looks to be a while before the next part of the story is published and knowing what i know now..i think i might have been able to wait. though i have to admit i was dying to hear the next book in the series and i did enjoy it.
[liontine phrases] .... publishers error
the heroine of course, but nightshade is offering tantalizing signs of development and i can't wait to hear more.
Love the entire series and yes i list again and again
When the egg hatchs and turns into a glass dragon
Kaylin is my favorite character so has come a long way but still is the girl we first met
Yes I love this series and couldn't wait to hear the whole thing.
Love the series cannot wait for the next book in the series.
