Publisher's Summary

The end of her journey is only the beginning....
The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous....
And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste" - one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly. With the wrong phrase she could tear a people further asunder. And with the right ones...well, then she might be able to heal a blight on a race.
If only she understood the story....

A series that's gone on too long

Sadly, this was one of the worst books I've read this year. I very much enjoyed the first few books in the Cast In series, finding the development of Kaylin's character and the fleshing out of the other Hawks and secondary characters well done and overall making for enjoyable reads. But the last couple of books have been less enjoyable and this one was finally one too far. Every time Kaylin gets in trouble, she suddenly has yet another new power to overcome the problem, and I'm just tired of it. Plus this isn't about the city or the characters in it, but a bunch of weirdness and totally unappealing silliness. Sometimes, authors and publishers just need to let go of a series and start with a new one.

Great performance but slow story

What did you love best about Cast in Sorrow?

Hvam is always gives a great performance.

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

This story is slow and focuses on just one event. Many of the previous stories had multiple situations and varied characters.

Which character – as performed by Khristine Hvam – was your favorite?


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Please do not.

Any additional comments?

I am afraid that Michelle has run out of avenues for the story and is just casting about. She has a beautiful writing style but unfortunately nothing to say.
