A strange world that somehow seems like home
on 7 December 2010
As an avid follower of Kaylin and the other rest of the inhabitants of Elantra, I was very much looking forward to the next instalment.
Of course, it didn't disappoint. Michelle Sagara has always been more interested in the way in which her characters develop in the face of some difficult (and unusual) challenges and this is one of the joys of the series.
The focus on great characters goes well beyond the central character of Kaylin Neya. One of the things that excites me about every new episode of "Cast in..", since it introduces new and interesting characters and we also get to know much more about the existing one too. This is a mile away from most other novels, where characters seldom have any real difficulties and do not really seem to change no matter how apparently difficult their choices seem to be.
Elantra is a strange world in which there live very three dimensional human characters.
I have very much looking forward to Cast In Ruins next year.
