Publisher's Summary

Seven years ago, Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….
Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.
But children are once again dying, and a dark and familiar pattern is emerging. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers—powers that no other human has. Her task is simple—find the killer, stop the murders… and survive the attentions of those who claim to be her allies!

I'm new to this author...

So I got the free prequel to see if I would like the rest of the books. I have now listened to the "1st" book of the series and used my new credits on the other four.
Good story, nice execution, enjoying every minute of the characters and look forward to the rest of the story.

Convoluted

I really wanted to like this book but I found it way too confusing for me to enjoy it. This is supposed to be book 1 but it felt more like I walked into the middle of the story. It was very frustrating. The author never bothers to fully explain the world building or character development of at least 6 different races. It would have been nice if this book had a prologue or companion book.

I enjoyed the narration which is really the reason I kept going with the book. I definitely will not be continuing with the series.
