I think this one had almost too much going on, and suffered slightly from it. Constantly switching between threads of plot made it a bit tedious. Still, an enjoyable read anyway. ( )

It's not bad enough that she's econded to the imperial palace to provide cultural input on a play (and not get eaten or otherwise noticed by the Dragon Lord - or the librarian). No, Kaylin Neya's bad day is only just beginning. Marcus, her Leontine Hawk sergeant, and the closest thing Kaylin has to a father figure, stands accused of murder, the Tha'lani are being threatened by an angry mob, and an infant under her protection is slated for death.

Finally, instead of being a mostly passive observer who blunders along saying and doing exactly what she pleases, Kaylin actually appears to have a brain in her head. The plot is tight and suspenseful and riddled with dry humor, and the whole book is entertaining. I didn't want to put it down, and I was very sorry to reach the end. ( )

This is the fourth book in the Cast series by Michelle Sagara. Last I read there are going to be five books in this series. This was a great book and really added to the series.

In this book Kaylin finds out that Hawk's Seargent, Marcus, has been accused of murder. On top of this after stopping the tidal wave from destroying the city; people fear the Tha'alani more than ever. Kaylin and Severn are assigned to work at the palace with the Imperial playwright to help him write a play that will help the populace to understand the Tha'alani better. Kaylin is again run ragged as she tries to help Marcus and help protect the Tha'alani.

This was a good book for this series. Maybe not my favorite of the series, but you find out more about Kaylin's potential. Severn was steadfast in his support of Kaylin and Sanabalis continues to be a favorite character of mine. You learn a ton about the Leotine race in this book; I really enjoy that race and was happy to learn more about it. I was a bit disappointed that more time wasn't spend with Nightshade as he is another one of my favorite characters. Kaylin actually matures some in this book and grows as a character so that was nice to see.

Overall this was a well-written, fast-paced fantasy-adventure. It was heavy on intrigue and magic. I enjoyed it a lot and look forward to reading the next book in the series. ( )

Book description
To be or not to be.

When a minority race of telepaths is wrongly suspected of causing a near-devastating tidal wave, Private Kaylin Neya is summoned to Court—and into a PR nightmare. To ease racial tensions, the Emperor has commissioned a play, and the playwright has his own ideas about who should be the focus….

But Kaylin works her best magic behind the scenes, and though she tries to stay neutral, she is again drawn into a world of politics…and murder. To make matters worse, Marcus, her trusted Sergeant, gets stripped of his command—leaving Kaylin vulnerable. Now she's juggling two troubling cases, and even magic's looking good by comparison. But then, nobody ever said life in the theater was easy….
