CAST IN CHAOS
One of the many things that makes this intricate and spellbinding series so memorable is the brilliant cast of characters that populate Elantra. While Kaylin Neya is the heart of the saga, her relationships with the other characters are its soul. Sagara’s evocative use of description and plot make this story and saga both original and haunting. Truly awesome reading!
When the charlatans of Elani Street suddenly produce magic that works, Private Kaylin Neya is both suspicious and worried. It doesn’t take long for the Dragon Court to go on high alert as events like abnormal births and blood rain terrify the residents. As per usual, Kaylin is at the center of the storm when she inadvertently enters the space between worlds and encounters a dark and voracious menace. Something is trying to break through the barriers between worlds, and its arrival could spell the destruction of Elantra. Kaylin’s unorthodox instincts have saved both her and the city before, but she has never been up against something like this! (LUNA, Aug., 504 pp., $14.95)
