Like potato chips, you have to keep going…

We learn more about what makes Kaylen, Kaylen. Her past and about her time in Barren. Severn is along to help her as well as Lord Tiamaris. Kaylen helps a Tower to have an avatar, Tara. Tara though needs help because if she doesn't get a fieflord that can help her, she's going to die. If she dies then Elantra is in a world of hurt. Tiamaris apparently in his youth was searching for a Tower to make his hoard and finally gets one in Tara. So looking forward to the next book in this series! ( )

This is the 5th book in the Chronicle of Elantra and it pains me to give this one 3 stars but it has to be done. It covers the period of 6 months after Kaylin left Nightshade and before she entered the city and began working fot the Hawks.

I found this novel to be much slower in pace than the others and reached an ending which I saw coming (but was still good). The slow pace is the result of a lot of psychological and philosophical discussion which sometimes left me a bit confused.

I admit that it took me longer to reach the end than normal and did seriously consider giving up on it. It felt more like an 'in-between' book rather than a full novel which sets the scene for the next one.

It also breaks with the general themes of the others in the series, the first focuses on the back story of the main characters whereas the others focus on the ins and outs of each of the races, one at a time, within the world Sagara has created. I expected this one to either be about the Aerians, some new race or the Dragon Emperor. Unfortunately I was disappointed. Hopefully the next in the series, CAST IN CHAOS will be better.
