Publisher's Summary

Don't ask. Don't tell. Stay alive.
A member of the elite Hawk force that protects the City of Elantra, Kaylin Neya has sacrificed much to earn the respect of the winged Aerians and immortal Barrani she works alongside. But the mean streets she escaped as a child aren't the ones she's vowed to give her life guarding. Those were much darker….
Kaylin's moved on with her life—and is keeping silent about the shameful things she's done to stay alive. But when the city's oracles warn of brewing unrest in the outer fiefdoms, a mysterious visitor from Kaylin's past casts her under a cloud of suspicion. Thankfully, if she's anything, she's a survivor….

Never disappoint!

It's a great story and it explains so much of some passages on the previous books. I read some reviews where it was said that there were holes in the plot line but I believe that if not intentional (as cliff hangers) this book covers a lot of the "unexplained things", specially regarding her 6 month absence between the fifs and the hawks. Get it! You won't be sorry! I can't wait to hear the next one. I could probably read it because they are available in print but it won't be the same as Khristine Hvam brings so much to the plate and delivery of the story.. so I will patiently wait (sighs)..

Good Series, Weaker Novel

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I like this series and would say that listening to this story made my commute more enjoyable.

If you’ve listened to books by Michelle Sagara before, how does this one compare?

This is one of the weaker books. The plot was ok but the book was long and I felt the overall story of Kaylin hardly progressed at all. Compared to earlier books it felt less polished.

Did Khristine Hvam do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

KH usually does a smashing job of nailing all the character voices but at the end of this book she started confusing the characters and using the wrong voices for characters she has nailed in the past. It was confusing because I am used to certain voices for certain characters.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

If this were a movie I would like to see it.

Any additional comments?

Don't let this book affect your opinion of the series. The earlier books are very enjoyable. I wouldn't skip this book because it does add to the story, but I am not sure I will listen to it again.
