Kaylin, a Hawk in what passes for the city of Elantra's police department, has learned, to her dismay, that a job well done is usually rewarded with another job, generally more dangerous.

Summoned to the Barrani High Court, she is tasked with healing
the youngest son of the High Lord. Unbeknownst to Kaylin, this will pull
her into a maelstrom of dangerous intrigue from which she'll be lucky
to escape with her life.

With the second book in a series, there's an expectation on the part of the author that the reader will already be familiar with the world it's set in. But this can greatly confuse a new reader, especially, as with this series, when
Kaylin has a tendency to jump from
task to task and not really listen to
what her friends and enemies are
telling her. Still, this is a fast-paced
novel, packed with action and adventure, and Sagara does a decent job of integrating the conventions of police procedurals with more fantastic elements. (Aug., 380 pp., $6.99)
