Cast in Sorrow: The Chronicles of Elantra, Book 9 | [Michelle Sagara]

Cast in Sorrow: The Chronicles of Elantra, Book 9

The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous... And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly.

Publisher's Summary

The end of her journey is only the beginning....

The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous....

And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly. With the wrong phrase she could tear a people further asunder. And with the right ones...well, then she might be able to heal a blight on a race.

If only she understood the story....

    "Not the best"

    This was definitely not the best of the series. I fail to see any real growth for Kaylin and am very disappointed in her constant contact and association with Nightshade. He is everything she despises yet she is somewhat attracted to him. Her desire to leave Nightshade and her childhood behind has become more and more wishy washy. Personally, I would like to see Nightshade replaced. Severn is a much more pivotal character and would like to see more character development. Have loved the series and will get the next book. Hopefully, it will track better. D

    Story
    "A once a year treat"

    the only major bummer about these books is that they come out once a year. I really wish there could be two books a year from Elantra.

    Well, Kaylen has grown a lot since the first book, and she still has a long way to go. I think the one thing that astounds me is that given all the death and short lives around her, Kaylen hasn't just said to herself: look, I'm going to decide on who I love, admit it to myself and to him, and go for it because life's too short. But in thinking about that, it's probably not a Kaylen sort of move. I did miss the dragons, but loved getting to know more about the Barani.

    Story
    ""It makes no sense" and "I don't understand""
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The hero of the story is constantly saying she doesn't understand and nothing makes sense. She is right. I'm sure people like it because the characters were formerly well-developed.


    What was most disappointing about Michelle Sagara’s story?

    Formerly interesting characters have become so stupid, one-dimensional and irritating that I never want to read about them again.


    What aspect of Khristine Hvam’s performance would you have changed?

    She did the best she could with the material provided. Perhaps more energy could have helped the material is some way.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was initially interested in the premise but after listening for an hour I became angry because so much made no sense. I was stuck with nothing else to listen to on a long road trip made longer by this story. I felt cheated after listening to this.


    Any additional comments?

    Seriously, I can't believe that anyone wrote a positive review for this story. I liked the earlier books and was excited about this one. After listening to the entire mess, I never want to hear from these characters again. The series has "jumped the shark".
