Kaylin takes us on an adventure to the West March and Teela, Severn and the Consort go with her. She has a new familiar a little dragon that is a huge help to her along the way, but she really needs to give him a name.

We haven't finished the journey, maybe in Cast in Sorrows? ( )

I'm not assigning a star rating to this one because I'm honestly not sure how to rate.

Our intrepid heroine is back…and I read the 500 page book nonstop because as engrossing for me as the previous books in the series. It was that good. It also went absolutely no where. Seriously, I'm not sure there are any spoilers I need to avoid until very last line of book.

It was her plus the ongoing politics of he dragon court, fiefs, high court, assorted races, her career with the hawks—and actually this book had a more complex plot, including the mages, female dragon, her egg, the candle her powers are supposed to light, what hatched from the egg, more about exchequer embezzlement, more about almost every character from previous books (the last new added race rather absent) and another group trek to another Barani High Court ceremony, this time in the West Marches.

Of course still yet another race had to be introduced, the Hallione, with some similarity to the fief tower avatars. And more runes, words, alphabets, true names, new languages, new shadows, and in the end pretty much nothing … they not only never made it to the ceremony they were getting to for 500 pages but the last line of book literally says "And still the recitation awaits!".

I'm glad some storylines like what would hatch out of egg progressed—but none of the story lines/mysteries resolved. Frankly, the last line of book ending with an exclamation point was just insulting.

This one dragged for me in places, and felt rather monotonous because of it. However, I still enjoyed it, because the world itself just keeps getting richer, and I'm bemoaning the stopping place on this one. Pretty much guaranteed to pick up the next one, just to see what happens when they get to the West March! ( )

It has been a busy few weeks for Private Kaylin Neva. In between angling for a promotion, sharing her room with the last living female Dragon, and dealing with more refugees than anyone knew what to do with, the unusual egg she'd been given began to hatch. Actually, that turned out to be lucky, because it absorbed the energy from the bomb that went off in her quarters.

So now might be the perfect time to leave Elantra and journey to the West March with the Barrani. If not for the disappearances of citizens in the fief of Tiamaris - disappearances traced to the very Barrani Kaylin is about to be traveling with....
