This review is from: Cast in Ruin (Chronicles of Elantra) (Paperback)
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.
