In addition to being ninth in the Chronicles of Elantra series, CAST IN SORROW also forms a tiny duology with its immediate predecessor. CAST IN PERIL brought Kaylin and her companions deep into the wilds of the West March and CAST IN SORROW is entirely concerned with what they find there. And though both books share the characteristic inscrutable magic, cataclysmic events, and fraught relationships, I enjoyed CAST IN PERIL’s quip-filled build up much more than CAST IN SORROW’s disorienting magical resolution.

The Chronicles of Elantra are an intricate hybrid of urban and high fantasy, with gritty streets, magical creatures, and medieval elements intwined. Sagara has created her own “urban” environment, as the City in which Kaylin lives serves as her whole world. Even in CAST IN PERIL, when obligations are going to take her beyond the familiar confines of her home, the landscape outside the City proper consists of danger, magic, etiquette, and inscrutable beings. Kaylin is right at home.
