Product Description

Product Description

When a minority race of telepaths is suspected of causing a near-devastating tidal wave, Private Kaylin Neya is summoned to Court—and into a PR nightmare.

To ease racial tensions, the emperor has commissioned a play, and the playwright has his own ideas about who should be the focus. …But Kaylin works her best magic behind the scenes, and though she tries to stay neutral, she is again drawn into a world of politics…and murder.

To make matters worse, Marcus, her trusted sergeant, gets stripped of his command, leaving Kaylin vulnerable. Now she’s juggling two troubling cases, and even magic’s looking good by comparison. But then nobody ever said life in the theater was easy. …

4.0 out of 5 stars Another interesting read with a lovely ending 21 Oct 2008

'When a minority race of telepaths is suspected of causing a near-devastating tidal wave, Private Kaylin Neya is summoned to Court - and into a PR nightmare. To ease tensions, the emperor has commissioned a play, and the playwright has his own ideas about who should be the focus...

But Kaylin works her best magic behind the scenes, and though she tries to stay neutral, she is again drawn into a world of politics...and murder. To make matters worse, Marcus, he trusted sergeant, gets stripped of his command, leaving Kaylin vulnerable. Now she's juggling two troubling cases, and even magic's looking good by comparison. But then nobody ever said life in the theatre was easy...'

This is the fourth book in the series and takes place almost immediately after the last book, Cast in Secret. Each book seems to have a theme. The first, Cast in Shadow was about the life and struggles of the main character Kaylin Neya and her relationship with Severn, her sort-of adopted older brother. The second, Cast in Courtlight examines the Barrani race and their customs. The third, Cast in Secret examines the Tha'alani race and their history. This book examines the Leontine race, where we get to meet Marcus's pridlea (his family) and we gain more insight into Marrin's life before she founded the Foundling Hall (an orphanage).

Again this story is based around Kaylin's love of children and the fact that she will do anything to protect them but this doesn't take anything away from the story. There wasn't a lot of character growth in this one (but then we've had quite a lot in the other books) other than Kaylin finally being able to keep her mouth shut, stopping herself from getting into (most likely, more) trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended 12 Dec 2008

I think AmyT has done a pretty accurate review and I just want to add a few thoughts.

If you like fast, action based fantasy with an unusual range of characters and some funny moments along the way then this is for you. Whilst the books are part of a connected series and we gradually see the bigger picture emerging, each book contains a completed storyline within that framework.

Compared to previous books, there is not as much elaboration on Kaylin's mysterious markings and given the impact Nightshade's mark had on her in the last book, surprisingly little reference to that in the early chapters. Reading about yet another race Kaylin has got a very special relationship with (though we knew about this one to a greater extent than the Barrani) I can't help but get excited about how all these jig saw pieces will come together in the end.

I had this book on pre-order with amazon and was very disappointed that apparently they did not have enough copies and I missed out. I am glad that amazon is affiliated with other sellers and I was able to get the book that way but I do feel that more effort should be made to get enough copies in to at least full-fill pre-orders!

My star ratings are the result of the following breakdown:
How difficult was it to put the book down: extremely difficult = five stars
Would I buy the hardcover of this one: definitely = five stars
Am I likely to read it again: definitely = five stars

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Chronicles of Elantra" book 4 10 Jun 2010
By Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In book 4 of this fantasy series Kaylin is again battling for the life of a child, this time a Leontine cub who; according to the law of his species, should never have been born. She is also trying to save the life of Marcus, her mentor and friend, attempting to rise above the petty behaviour of the new Hawk Sergeant who badly wants to fire her and avoiding any potential possibility of a meeting with the Emperor; a sensible decision considering his tendency to eat anyone who annoys him.

Established characters Severn, dragons Sanabalis and Tiamaris, and Nightshade; an immortal Barrani, feature significantly in the plot, as does Marcus. Although more is learnt of his personal life and the Leontine species as a whole, this book does not centre on the Leontine race as predominantly as previous books have dealt with the Tha'alani or the Barrani. Instead this book also deals significantly with the growing racial hatred towards the Tha'alani following their misunderstood actions at the end of book 3 and Marcus' current circumstances.

The pace is almost frantic in places, and whilst the ideas introduced are clever and original, I was left feeling somewhat lost at times; fumbling a little to grasp exactly what the author meant. That said, Kaylin remains a likeable, gutsy character with plenty of empathy and a bloody-minded tenacity to solve a case or save a life. She has enough sass and humour, plus an amazing ability to ask the most inappropriate or random question at any given time, which keeps her fresh and entertaining in the fourth book of this series. MS is also a master of a spectacular ending, and "Cast in Fury" definitely has a wonderful finale.
