This is one of the few series I’ve remained stead-fast to over the years. Every time I get wind of a new one being released I get really excited. I’m going sad when it finally concludes.
Kaylin wasn’t sent to the West March to start a war. Her mission to bring back nine Barrani might do just that, though. She traveled with a Dragon, and her presence is perceived as an act of aggression in the extremely hostile world of Barrani-Dragon politics. Internal Barrani politics are no less deadly, and Kaylin has managed—barely—to help the rescued Barrani evade both death and captivity at the hands of the Consort.
Before the unplanned “visit” to the West March, Kaylin invited the Consort to dinner. For obvious reasons, Kaylin wants to cancel dinner—forever. But the Consort is going to show up at the front door at the agreed upon time. The fact that she tried to imprison Kaylin’s guests doesn’t matter at all…to her.
A private Barrani Hell, built of Shadow and malice, exists beneath the High Halls. It is the High Court’s duty to jail the creature at its heart—even if it means that Barrani victims are locked in the cage with it. The Consort is willing to do almost anything to free the trapped and end their eternal torment. And she needs the help of Kaylin’s houseguests—and Kaylin herself. Failure won’t be death—it’s Hell. And that’s where Kaylin is going.
This is the fourteenth book is Michelle Sagara’s Chronicles of Elantra series. It’s a sort of secondary world urban fantasy that features a protagonist who is a patrol officer for the city of Elantra. She solves mysteries, but then often gets caught up in greater magical happenings within Elantra, many of which involve the politics of the city and the various factions of peoples within. If you’ve never read any of these books, now’s a great time to start. 🙂
I absolutely adore this series. Cast in Oblivion is scheduled to be released January 29th, 2019 from MIRA Books.
