Publisher's Summary

Seven corpses are discovered in the streets of a Dragon’s fief - all identical, down to their clothing.
Kaylin Neya is assigned to discover who they were, who killed them - and why. Is the evil lurking at the borders of Elantra preparing to cross over?
At least the investigation delays her meeting with the Dragon Emperor. And as the shadows grow longer over the fiefs, Kaylin must use every skill she’s ever learned to save the people she’s sworn to protect. Sword in hand, dragons in the sky, this time there’s no retreat and no surrender….
Spellbound? Listen to more Chronicles of Elantra.

Home Run!

What did you love best about Cast in Ruin?

Decidedly the best one yet! and I know I say this about every last one that comes out but.. Michelle fascinates me with the stories. Tying the lose ends from each book on the next and always leaving something to be wondered. I love it!!! I am definitely looking forward to the next one and excited to see what's gonna come of the new introduced character.

What did you like best about this story?

That it's going in a direction in which Kaylin's character is growing (though slowly - and this, in my opinion, due to the fact that not a lot of time passes between each book/story). I love that the main character's feelings are getting exposed and that there's indication something might happen in that aspect. I look forward to and hope for some

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

I've listened to all the cast books. I started with the Free novella, which is was a genius promoting idea, I might add! I would probably never thought of downloading these books if it wasn't for that. Once I did though, I was captivated by Khristine Hvam's voice and performance. The story was great and KH really brought it to life. I hope she narrates all of Michelle's books.. I will certainly by them all!

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

I actually almost did! I was completely

Any additional comments?

Phenomenal! Buy it, buy it, buy it!!!

Loved it!!

Have been waiting for this audiobook for a few weeks. I love the story, and the narrator does a good job with the voices.

I heard Khristine Hvam actually sat down with Michelle Sagara to plan the characters voices out with the books, and she does a great job. Another narrator that can voice act all the characters so you know who is saying what.

The story is once again very good. One thing I like about this series is you never know what the next book is actually going to be about, though she gives you hints, I thought it would be about the strangers and that egg from what small plots she didn't finish in the last book, and I was somewhat right, but of course that is a small part of the book.

I can't wait till the next one is out, I hope Audible releases it the day the actual book is released.
