Synopses & Reviews
Kaylin Neya is a Hawk, part of the elite force tasked with keeping the City of Elantra safe. Her past is dark, her magic uncontrolled and her allies unpredictable. And nothing has prepared her for what is coming, when the charlatans on Elani Street suddenly grow powerful, the Oracles are thrown into an uproar and the skies rain blood….
The powerful of Elantra believe that the mysterious markings on Kaylin's skin hold the answer, and they are not averse to using her—how ever they have to—in order to discover what it is.
Something is coming, breaking through the barriers between the worlds. But is it a threat that Kaylin needs to defend her city against—or has she been chosen for another reason entirely?
"Magic runs amok in this enjoyable sixth installment in Sagara's excellent 'Chronicles of Elantra' series (following Cast in Silence). As a member of a skilled police force responsible for maintaining order in the City of Elantra, Private Kaylin Neya deals with mundane hassles daily, but it's the all-too-troublesome arcane problems that fall to her most frequently, thanks to her innate (and sometimes uncontrolled) magical talents. Now a magical surge has turned a neighborhood full of charlatans into actual sorcerers and seers, and it seems to be spreading. Kaylin is ordered to investigate, but no one is prepared for the startling secret she uncovers, one that threatens not just Elantra, but the very fabric of the world itself. With each successive novel, Sagara's world grows richer and more complex. Meanwhile, Kaylin herself continues to grow beyond her own troubled past in surprising ways. Altogether, this is another satisfying addition to an already vivid and entertaining fantasy series.
