Summary

New York Times best-selling author Michelle Sagara returns to the city of Elantra with a thrilling tale rife with ancient magic, assassination attempts, and political intrigue.

Private Kaylin Neya already has Dragons and Barrani as roommates. Adding one injured, flightless Aerian to her household should be trivial. Sure, the Aerian is Sergeant Moran dar Carafel, but Kaylin's own sergeant is a Leontine, the definition of growly and fanged. She can handle one Aerian.

But when a walk to the Halls of Law becomes a street-shattering magical assassination attempt on the sergeant, Kaylin discovers that it's not the guest who's going to be the problem: it's all of the people who suddenly want Moran dar Carafel dead. And though Moran refuses to tell her why she's being targeted, Kaylin is determined to discover her secret and protect her at all costs - even if keeping Moran safe means dealing with Aerian politics, angry dragons, and something far more sinister.

I'm a big fan of this entire fantasy series...

... and I've read all 11 previous books. So I was always going to give a great review.

But, the entire series is really good! Highly recommended.

FANTASTIC - WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE ???

What made the experience of listening to Cast in Flight the most enjoyable?

I love this series and can't wait for the next one. Fantastic job of taking me to another place which is what an author SHOULD DO. Thank you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cast in Flight?

The entire book is fantastic and I am looking forward to the next step.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

ALL of her books are in my library and I have them ready to read again which is unusual. I read the first because of who she has as a narrator. LOVE Khristine so gave her a shot. Then was hooked.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

LOVE it.....get entrenched and then listen to it in a couple of days in spite of my hectic schedule.

Any additional comments?

WHEN IS THE NEXT ONE. I'm always nervous there isn't going to be one but know there is always more...would love an piece to look forward to?

Hmm!

I love this series but in this recording it kept going back one or two sentences. At first I thought I was going crazy. Then as the novel continued and the sentence repetition continued it just became a nuisance.

You MUST Read These in Order! And this is truly YA! . . . 😱

5 stars is great.
4 stars is good.
3 stars is OK.
______________________________________________________
I started the series with this book. (Dated 2016). HUGE MISTAKE!
Read these in order to even have a chance to sort out these various characters with various powers. Even then this is marginal character development full of inconsistent behavior and is generally a young girls heroine YA mush-mash. IMHO NOT for adults. I make these comments having purchased and listened to the initial book in this series, Cast in Shadow.(dated 2011) _______________________________________😱

hard to follow

Perhaps it is because I am listening rather than reading, but something about the story or way it is read makes it hard to understand what they are on about at times. I still have no idea what some of the plot twists meant.

The Best Yet!!

This book has a lot more advancing of plot and even action then most of the rest of the series. It makes for a nice change, and there were so many good moments, that as of right now, this is my favorite book in the series.

Cast in Flight features the Aerians, Kaylin's favorite race and the ones who mostly raised her from the time she was 13. It was nice to see Kaylin realize that even through her idolization of the Aerians, they too are "human" some are good, some are evil and everyone makes mistakes. Just like the rest of the races of Elantra, the Aerians have a rich and varied culture that I enjoyed learning about.

We also got to see of more of the Eternal Emperor which was exciting. I look forward to the next installment.

another great installment!

i love this series, it never lets you down. the only problem is that the books don't come out fast enough! i'd also like to see the length doubled or tripled...lol great narration, wonderful story line, great job with the characters personalities...no cons at all with this series.
