Product Description

Product Description

Seven corpses are discovered in the streets of a Dragon's fief. All identical, down to their clothing.

Kaylin Neya is assigned to discover who they were, who killed them—and why. Is the evil lurking at the borders of Elantra preparing to cross over?

At least the investigation delays her meeting with the Dragon Emperor. And as the shadows grow longer over the fiefs, Kaylin must use every skill she's ever learned to save the people she's sworn to protect. Sword in hand, dragons in the sky, this time there's no retreat and no surrender…

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 9 Oct 2011
By Louise
Another installment which I rushed to read and was not disappointed! This book answered more questions but also raised more (in true cast fashion). It had more humor in parts which made reading too easy as I finished it that much quicker but it does lead into cast in peril efficiently. Severn asks some uncomfortable questions although there was not enough nightshade for me in this book - although I think I'm the only fan who thinks nightshade is better than Severn lol.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes but........ 24 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love michelle Sagara's writing but i wish the character of Kaylin would develop more. At the start of the series she was a scruffy private since then she has saved the world 3 or 4 times and yetshe and the characters around her dont seem to change how she is perceived or treated. Please give the girl a sense of her own power and while we're on it should the hawks not start to recognise what she is. After everything she's done and been part of it strains credability that she still gets told off for coming in late.
Come on Michells let her grow up and things move on in the next book. I love the series and want to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars great stuff 8 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read most, if not all of Michelle Sagara's books, whether written as Sagara, or Michelle West or indeed Michelle Sagara-West. I find it amazing that she has been not only a prodigious author, but that each of the series that she has created has been written in a distinct and individual style.
The Sun Sword series reads differently to the House War series, which is again different from the Sundered series, which too is different from the "Cast in..." series.
Which do I like the most? I genuinely like them all very much, but I must admit that I have a soft spot for Private Kaylin Neya and the "Cast in ..." series. They have a light, deft touch and despite being shorter than the other series' books, have rich and engaging characters.
Cast in Ruin is an excellent read and I highly recommend it. One can read it as a standalone, but that would be a pity, as the previous books provide much detail as well as a feel and an understanding for Kaylin and her friends.

It was true: hope could be unkind. You opened yourself up to the worst of wounds because you wanted to believe that something good could finally happen. But if you didn’t? You missed this. This intense and perfect moment in which, while the world was almost literally going to hells all around you, hope and reality blended in a single, perfect note. &quote;

“We suffer, and it breaks something. When we win free—by gaining our name, by crossing a bloody bridge—we still live in a cage of scars. If life were fair, we would never have suffered what we suffered at all; having suffered it and survived, we’re still reacting to things that don’t exist anymore.” &quote;

Hope was cruel. It could be an act of torture far more profound than despair. &quote;
