Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a vicious battle between darkness and light, the city of Elantra has emerged victorious. But Shadows continue to haunt every corner of its streets....

Elantra stands strong, but countless numbers of Hawks, the city's staunchest protectors, were lost in the brutal attack. Humans, Barrani, Aerians, Leontines - none of the races emerged unscathed from the defense of the city. Homes were lost, families were scattered - and the outcast Barrani Lord Nightshade is missing from his castle in the fiefs.

Yet as the chaos surrounding the battle begins to wane, Private Kaylin Neya's duties must resume, despite her grief. Called in to investigate a triple murder in a quiet part of town, Kaylin and her companions are soon embroiled in a case that is anything but routine. Evidence of the deadly Shadows that still threaten the city leads to hints of ancient, forgotten magics - and everything can be traced directly to Ravellon, the heart of the Shadows and the darkness they contain.

But it is there that Lord Nightshade will be found - if he still survives.

Love this series

Somehow the author makes you think that her theories of time, space, and magic make perfect sense, and you even start to think you understand them while you are reading them. She creates a new reality in this series that is fascinating and engaging. Every time I finish one book, I start waiting for the next.

The most difficult book.

The only one I didn't love and actually struggled to finish. Too much time on well, time.

a problem

I really like Sagara's work but this one is so choppy and thin on actual story that I can not entirely say I like it. I really like the direction Sagara takes with sophisticated problems of language and diversity. She works hard to reveal the problems any community has with these problems. However, this story carries an interest in perceptual moments and it creates a choppy narrative and her interest in narrative gets lost. It is a surprise since she has stated that the story is primary. The payoff may come in the next story. She has certainly not lost my interest or gratitude for her work. I will continue to read and enjoy the work.

Love this story

I love the cast stories, I can't wait till the next one. I might be getting all the past books on Audible so I can enjoy them in a different way.

Huh, something happened?

After months of waiting for the next installment, I was ready for some answers. For Kaylin to grow, some new information about her marks, her purpose. Nothing happens! There are no new answers. For that matter, there are no new questions either. A lot of disjointed rambling about time and language, yeah, yeah, yeah, the emperor is not really horrible, shadows are just misunderstood, etc etc etc. In all the previous books, I felt the story at least moved forward. Something new was revealed. I've listened to the whole series at least three times and I've enjoyed each journey. I feel I could skip this one completely and not miss a thing! I'm so disappointed. Even Khristine Hvam couldn't save this one.

Disappointing ramblings

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Too much time is spent in mental ramblings that are repetitious and boring. So little time creating the story and yet actions of the characters are left abruptly unexplained. Dialog is stilted and the author expects readers to understand the stilted unfinished sentences. I've enjoyed most of previous books in this series but they are becoming more boring with each book.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Khristine Hvam?

Maybe,

most wonderful..as usual!

perfect narrator for this perfect series!!! i can not say enough good about this author. there is something special in her thought process that comes across most beautifully in her writing. the revelations about the main character's inner thoughts about herself, her actions and reactions towards her own feelings and ways of thinking, where she was wrong or intolerant, and her acceptance and change make the reader reconsider their own beliefs and errors in judgement. very thought provoking and humbling.

i always have a sense of peace within myself each time i realize ... yes! that's it! ... having your own feelings put into words is so satisfyingly validating, especially as you could not find the right way to express yourself and your thoughts.

because kaylin naya is older now, with ten books before this one, you see more maturity and growth in her. i will say i'm ready for her to get past her months with barron, which badly scarred her and she is still unable to deal with. i enjoy her relationship with severn and lord nightshade and hope the choice, when it comes, between the two doesn't leave the one not chosen with a feeling of loss as i like them both. nightshade does seem to be going down a less than hoped for path at this point. i guess i'm really hoping for a fairy tale outcome for him. although considering the mortal, immortal thing, severn would be the better choice... guess we'll have to wait and see.

khristine hvam will always be the only voice of kaylin naya to me. she does it perfectly.

I love these novels

Narration is great. Story is great. I'm always happy when the new Sagara books come out, and I'm happy audible lets me listen while I work. My husband owns the novels, I have the ebooks and audible. :)

Cast in Honor

What can I say? I fell in love with the first paragraph of the first book and have been delighted ever since. Khristine Hvam is the perfect narrator for Michelle Sagara's world and I cannot wait for the next one to come out.

Really good book

I have this in a few different formats, it is amazing in all of them, however try not to be driving during the epilogue as I had to pull over and wipe a tear as I got a little emotional, this just shows how good Khristine's reading is. A big thank you to both Michelle and Khristine for a really good performance :D
