Publisher's Summary

Kaylin Neya is a Hawk, part of the elite force tasked with keeping the City of Elantra safe. Her past is dark, her magic uncontrolled, and her allies unpredictable. And nothing has prepared her for what is coming, when the charlatans on Elani Street suddenly grow powerful, the Oracles are thrown into an uproar and the skies rain blood….

The powerful of Elantra believe that the mysterious markings on Kaylin's skin hold the answer, and they are not averse to using her—how ever they have to—in order to discover what it is.

Something is coming, breaking through the barriers between the worlds. But is it a threat that Kaylin needs to defend her city against—or has she been chosen for another reason entirely?

Spellbound? Listen to more Chronicles of Elantra.

Amazing Book Cant wait for the next one

Wow...this series is one I stumbled on because the first Novella was free, boy I am glad I did I have listened to each book so far, and was so frustrated that I made it through them all so quickly, I must admit I listened to while driving to and from work and while cooking so to be fair I was addicted. Its a great series and very powerful, I cant wait for the next book. Boy I hope she writes fast.

The best one yet

What made the experience of listening to Cast in Chaos the most enjoyable?

The story and delivery of it by KH kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time

What other book might you compare Cast in Chaos to and why?

This cast series is my first on the genre and I'm swept away.

What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

The intensity in which she delivers the story. The accents are great, distincts and characteristic. the emOtion with which she delivers the development of the love passages give me chills and I catch myself smiling with excitment sometimes.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitly. And almost did too. If basic necessity, like eating and sleeping, hadn't gotten in a way.

Any additional comments?

I wish they put out an ETA of the next books. I'm dying to know what with happen next.<br/>My only issue with the stories is: even though there have been 6 books before this one after she became a private, the time line hasn't seem to progress. She is still 20yo and the stories always state that had only passed 7 years since she arrived at the tower. 6 books and 6 different stories that shows how much she has grown and learned. All of that happened within less than a year? I'd like to see her turn 21 (at least!)

I love this series!

I am not sure what it is about this series that I love so much. It's not perfect, but it's close. I Iike Kaylin, but to be honest there are times when I want to smack her. I just like Elantra as a whole. The city and the people. Sagara writes in such a way that I can see the city when I read her books. It's pretty awesome. The story is an interesting one. The idea of the refugees is an interesting one, I can't wait for the next one. Hvam is an awesome narrator, can't say enough about how awesome she is.

When will Keylin Grow up?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Keylin doesn't reach a higher level of maturity with each book. Her feats are never acknowledged by the other characters and too much time is spent on theories and not enough on action.

Would you recommend Cast in Chaos to your friends? Why or why not?

With reservations. The novella was great and the next two were good, but after that the format just addressed another emergency without any growth.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

There is hardly any romance. Just statements of love....boring

Any additional comments?

Bring back the excitement and wonder of the first several books.

Kaylin continues doing what she does best

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would and have done so many times.

What did you like best about this story?

Kaylin stands up for what she believes in.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have all of the Cast In series. I love them.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

both at different times, as always.

Any additional comments?

I love this series. I heartily recommend it to everyone. It is unlike anything else in my 2000+ library. It is unique- serious, funny, scary, mysterious, and intriguing.

Wonderful narrator

This is my favorite audio book narrator thus far. She does such a great job creating and maintaining distinct voices for each character that it really enhances the story. I love the series, too, so having such a good narrator has made listening to these favorite stories very enjoyable. That isn't always the case, I have found. There are some stories that I prefer to read rather than listen primarily because the narrator is not as good as this one.

Love the story and performance

I love the Chronicles of Elantra stories. The performer brings the story to life and makes it even more enjoyable than the written book.

Enjoyed it

Good story line. Interesting, not too slow, or so fast that it is hard to follow.
