Read Cast in Deception (Chronicles of Elantra, #13) Online Free - WITH FRIENDS LIKE THESE, WHO NEEDS ENEMIES?
Private Kaylin Neya thought her home couldn’t possibly get more crowded. But when one of her housemates, Annarion, decides to undertake the Barrani Test of Name, his friends refuse to let him face his task alone—and Kaylin’s sentient home, Helen, is the only structure capable of shielding the rest of Elantra from the magnitude of their power.
Annarion and Mandoran almost caused the destruction of the High Halls once already. Add nine of their closest friends, and the danger is astronomically higher—especially since these guests are at the heart of a political firestorm. Imprisoned almost a millennium ago, their recent freedom threatens the rulership of several prominent Barrani families, and the machinations of those Lords make it almost impossible to tell friend from foe.
As political tensions ramp up, the shadows beneath the High Halls are seeking a freedom that has never been possible before. Kaylin must find a way to keep those shadows from escaping, or that freedom will destroy her city, the empire and everything she holds dear.

Very long and a lot of traveling. I felt underwhelmed with no singular villain, more multiple possibilities - like conspiracy theories. I also thought this would be about the cohort taking the test of the name; it wasn't. It's about the cohort traveling to Elantra. No big battle in this either, l...

I really love this series. I've been reading it so long that it's become a cozy read for me now. The series is really a slow build and I'm not sure if there's an end in sight. I can see the direction it's going, but each new book mostly adds more to the world building instead of feeling like you'...

I love this series. I loved this book. But this ending ... or rather, cliffhanger non-ending ... nearly killed me.
Also, I feel positive that the box that Alsanis gave to Kaylin (view spoiler)[- the little ring box, when he said sometimes a home is a cage - is Teranno's name. (hide spoiler)] Bets, anyone?
I'm not going...

Sagara's Elantra novels are just so visceral!
I didn't think I would be giving this latest Elantra novel 5 stars when I was a quarter of the way through. But but the end I was saying Yes, Yes, Yes!
Once again we plow through acres of the in between portal paths with Kaylin (Private Neya) and Bellus...

Well...huh. I'm a big fan of the Chronicles of Elantra series. Michelle Sagara's prose leaves me breathless at times and she creates such appealing characters even when they're the "bad guys." Khristine Hvam has the characters' personalities and voices firmly in place, making listening to the dia...

That was wonderful. When is the next book?
Admittedly it doesn't advance the overall plot arc but really fleshed out the cohort & Kaylin's life.

There are a lot of reasons why I love this series but the biggest one is the way Sagara portrays emotions. It's hard to describe feelings in a way that makes sense. Emotions are simple but layered complexities. Within this fantasy world, the idea of family and love is explored in ways th...

Severn is staying! I really hope that means there is some progression in the next book in his relationship with Kaylin. Also, wow with all the twists in this book. I'm not even sure I understand what all happened, but I fully enjoyed the story. I'm really wanting to punch the Consort at the momen...

This episode of the Chronicles on Elantra focuses on the Barrani. It especially focuses on the cohort of young people who were sent, millennia ago, to take part in a ceremony that would give them great power or kill them. They didn't die but they didn't return either. Kaylin's friend Teela was th...

I'm such a fan of this series. The world-building, magic system and engaging characters, especially the main character, are so well done. This latest installment had plenty of action and rich character development. Some books in this series have been slow going (Cast in Honor being my least favor...
