Cast in Honor
Chronicles of Elantra #11
by Michelle Sagara
11 . 24 . 2015
In the aftermath of a vicious battle between darkness and light, the city of Elantra has emerged victorious. But Shadows continue to haunt every corner of its streets…
Elantra stands strong, but countless numbers of Hawks, the city’s staunchest protectors, were lost in the brutal attack. Humans, Barrani, Aerians, Leontines—none of the races emerged unscathed from the defense of the city. Homes were lost, families were scattered…and the outcast Barrani Lord Nightshade is missing from his castle in the fiefs.
Yet as the chaos surrounding the battle begins to wane, Private Kaylin Neya’s duties must resume, despite her grief. Called in to investigate a triple murder in a quiet part of town, Kaylin and her companions are soon embroiled in a case that is anything but routine. Evidence of the deadly Shadows that still threaten the city leads to hints of ancient, forgotten magics. And a visit to the Oracular Halls points directly to Ravellon—the heart of the Shadows and the darkness they contain.
But it is there that Lord Nightshade will be found—if he still survives.
Why I am waiting…
I am not entirely certain that I am waiting on this one…Don’t get me wrong, the series has been great, but I might be losing interest this late in the game. I keep reading the books, hoping for a bit more romance, and then being a bit disappointed. I will not be giving up though. I will keep reading! As it is, this cover looks even better than the last ones and the description sounds promising!
