Publisher's Summary

Kaylin Neya is a Hawk, part of the elite force tasked with keeping the City of Elantra safe. Her past is dark, her magic uncontrolled, and her allies unpredictable. And nothing has prepared her for what is coming, when the charlatans on Elani Street suddenly grow powerful, the Oracles are thrown into an uproar and the skies rain blood….
The powerful of Elantra believe that the mysterious markings on Kaylin's skin hold the answer, and they are not averse to using her—how ever they have to—in order to discover what it is.
Something is coming, breaking through the barriers between the worlds. But is it a threat that Kaylin needs to defend her city against—or has she been chosen for another reason entirely?

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

The story and delivery of it by KH kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time


What other book might you compare Cast in Chaos to and why?

This cast series is my first on the genre and I'm swept away.


What about Khristine Hvam’s performance did you like?

The intensity in which she delivers the story. The accents are great, distincts and characteristic. the emOtion with which she delivers the development of the love passages give me chills and I catch myself smiling with excitment sometimes.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitly. And almost did too. If basic necessity, like eating and sleeping, hadn't gotten in a way.


Any additional comments?

I wish they put out an ETA of the next books. I'm dying to know what with happen next.
My only issue with the stories is: even though there have been 6 books before this one after she became a private, the time line hasn't seem to progress. She is still 20yo and the stories always state that had only passed 7 years since she arrived at the tower. 6 books and 6 different stories that shows how much she has grown and learned. All of that happened within less than a year? I'd like to see her turn 21 (at least!)

When will Keylin Grow up?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Keylin doesn't reach a higher level of maturity with each book. Her feats are never acknowledged by the other characters and too much time is spent on theories and not enough on action.


Would you recommend Cast in Chaos to your friends? Why or why not?

With reservations. The novella was great and the next two were good, but after that the format just addressed another emergency without any growth.


What would have made this romance irresistible?

There is hardly any romance. Just statements of love....boring


Any additional comments?

Bring back the excitement and wonder of the first several books.
