Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Cast in Wisdom by Michelle Sagara

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.


The fiefs that exist at the heart of the city of Elantra are home to sentient Towers that guard the world against the incursion of Shadow. But between the fiefs exists the gray world of the border zone. In it, geography changes between one passage across a border and the next. The rules of magic are different there—and yet somehow familiar to Kaylin Neya.

When a Shadow escapes, Kaylin must find out how…and why. If Shadows can breach the barrier erected by the Towers, the whole of Elantra will be devoured. It’s happened on other worlds. Bellusdeo, Kaylin’s Dragon companion, absolutely believes it can happen on theirs.

The border zone holds secrets and ancient histories, and people are gathering there in search of its power. Without even understanding what that power is, or why it exists, Kaylin is in a desperate race against time to find those secrets first. She doesn’t know who her enemies are. She doesn’t know how many she’ll face. But she won’t face them alone.

This is one of my absolute favorite series and book fifteen (FIFTEEN) comes out soon–I’m so excited for this one. If you want a good secondary world urban fantasy, Chronicles of Elantra is the series for you. Fifteen books may seem daunting, but they’re quick reads. 🙂  Very much looking forward to this one. Cast in Wisdom is expected out January 28th, 2020 from Mira.

    Man, that’s a series I need to start over at some point….I think I got through a half dozen or so when I had the commute from hell and audiobooks were my life…now all my memories are so fuzzy I’d probably need to start from the beginning!

    This is one of those things – 15 books – I’m so far behind now (aka I’ve not even started this) that it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever start. I do enjoy a really good long series though – House of Midnight, Morganville Vampires, Sookie, Toby Daye – all spring to mind. But I have to get on the train early.

      I still need to finish Sookie! I’m terrible about sticking with series these days, my reading is all over the place. This is one of the few I make an effort to keep up on lol. 🙂
