Michelle Sagara: Cast In Shadow

Elianne, having left the fiefs, has changed her name to Kaylin Neya.

She is a Hawk now, but still haunted by her past.

Sounds familiar? It is. Practically every heroine in current female-centric SFF has a dark past.

But the world Michelle has built is very interesting, and I like that she takes risks with her characters. The characterization is very well done–you can see Kaylin maturing through the book.

The three male characters jostling for the lead are all very intriguing. Nightshade (here we go again with the nightshade/belladonna thing) whom we don’t get to see enough of, Tiamaris who appears to be less obedient to his Emperor than most might think and Severn who’s been paying for an unforgiveable crime.

I fully plan to get the next book, Cast In Courtlight, though I’ve heard that it’s not as good.

This rates 8 out of 10.

This is my review for Angie‘s TBR Challenge.
