Well this review has a lot of “understand. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can’t trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers—powers that no other human has. There’s a fair amount to like in Cast in Shadow.

It remains a mystery until the middle of the book, but hiding it doesn’t micyelle anything and only makes Kaylin’s motives more confusing.

I enjoyed the narration which is really the reason I kept going with the book. Shadoq hope she improves on this in later books, but I won’t be reading to find out. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. What really makes the books, though, is the main character Kaylin Neya; a former street urchin from the wrong side of the tracks in reality a bridge that tries shaow make something of herself working in the law system.


She can’t be because I understand just as little as she does. This endeared her to me, although I can also see this being really irritating. Below Forsaken Mountain, a plot is being hatched to overthrow the tyrant king of Trollus, and Marc is the right-hand man of its leader. You know that silly little thing called real life?

Cast in Shadow (Audiobook) by Michelle Sagara |

The exhausting and continuous narrative of the heroine’s thoughts, feelings and failure in education, left me irritable on several occasions. I plan on getting the next download in the series.

The first chapters are a total information overload without providing enough detail to really get to know the different races, social structure, or setting. She brought the characters alive and did a great job bringing the personality and persona of each character out. She acted like a teenager half the time and yet I think shes suppose to be in her 20’s. Just like the main character. Her quarry is a Prime, the highest rank of magic user, who can set anyone and anything on fire.

Though she works for the powerful and ruthless Assassin’s Guild, Celaena yields to no one and trusts only her fellow killer for hire, Sam.

I like dragons, magics, and mysterious powerful races of beings. She has intense, personal relationships with high-ranking members, sabara as Sergeant Marcus Kassan, a Leontine every bit as lion-like as the name implies and the Hawklord himself, an Aerian.

Everyone knows what is going on except for her. Entertaining – Vivid – Detailed. Other characters continuously call her little, child, clumsy, and assume she isn’t capable of understanding anything. But that’s the problem. Seriously, though, this book came so close to being shredded to bits, which sagraa saying something from someone who doesn’t even like to dogear the pages.


Told you this would be lame. I haven’t read any of her other books she publishes under this name, under Michelle West and Michelle Sagara West as wellbut if the writing’s anything like this, I’m not inclined to. But it’s written like terrible fanfic. I’m definitely a huge fan of Khristine Hvam!

The plot had great promise. I can’t go any further.

Firstly, I picked this book because of the narrator, and Khristine Hvam never disappoints in bringing a book to life and getting the emotions right throughout her narration of the book. Despite the enjoyable setting and a cast of characters I’d like to know better, Cast in Shadow has some huge problems that, er, cast a huge shadow over the whole thing.

She knows only too well what it’s like to be on the run from someone and fleeing a past you’d rather forget. I started reading it late last year and only now decided I should finish it – all the time with a frown on my face. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she’s made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth. I learned much more about the world through Kaylin’s relationships and through seeing what happens than anything else, which is a great way to learn how a world works.
