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.
So in general there’s just a big fat “YAY!!!” that I finally get to read the next book in this series. I love Kaylin Neya, and I’m so excited to see what happens to her and her friends, especially now that she (and we) have finally seen the Emperor in action. Things seem to be gearing up in the series for a huge battle down the road (one that I hope will make the last battle look like child’s play.) I’m also really curious to find out what happened to Nightshade. And, as always, I hope something will FINALLY happen between Kaylin and Severn. Fingers crossed!
What are you waiting for this week?
