Kaylin Neya is a Hawk, part of the elite force tasked with keeping the City of Elantra safe. Her past is dark, her magic uncontrolled and her allies unpredictable. And nothing has prepared her for what is coming, when the charlatans on Elani Street suddenly grow powerful, the Oracles are thrown into an uproar and the skies rain blood….

The powerful of Elantra believe that the mysterious markings on Kaylin's skin hold the answer, and they are not averse to using her—how ever they have to—in order to discover what it is.

Something is coming, breaking through the barriers between the worlds. But is it a threat that Kaylin needs to defend her city against—or has she been chosen for another reason entirely?

I hesitated for awhile before tackling CAST IN CHAOS, mainly because I couldn't remember if I was caught up this far into the series. According to Goodreads I was, though after so much time had passed, I had a hard time remembering the details of past books. And there's a lot of references to past events in this book. Part of me couldn't wait to see what was going to unfold in CAST IN CHAOS, but most of me wanted to start over with book one to remind me of everything Kaylin's been through.

Although it doesn't seem possible, Sagara just keeps getting better and better with the Elantra series. I think Cast in Shadow remains my favourite Elantra novel, but Cast in Chaos has stolen the second favourite prize from Cast in Fury.Sagara's writing is just one of the things I love about these novels. There is such a moreish air to the story. I didn't stay up until after midnight just because my best friend wanted to read the book today. I couldn't stop reading. Every word flowed onto the next and I found myself sitting up almost holding my breath as the story reach the climax. My favourite aspect of the Elantra series however is the growth of the heroine Kaylin. Each book has really taught Kaylin an important lesson, although the focus of the book has not really been the lesson, aside from Cast in Shadow. With each novel Kaylin becomes more and more three dimensional and her foibles and weaknesses come to light.It's not only Kaylin who shines in this book, although she certainly does dominate the story more than usual. Tiamaris and Tara make an appearance, along with Sanabalis and the Arkon, and of course Severn and the rest of the Hawks. The confrontation with Nightshade over the events of the previous book doesn't lead where I expected it to, but did open up a whole lot more questions regarding Kaylin past and the mystery of the runes.read more

This is another series I've found really uneven. I love the world of Elantra and I love Sagara's writing. The problem is, at least in part, that there are things about the main character that drive me absolutely crazy, though I do find her more tolerable than I have sometimes in the past.My main objection to this particular book has to do with a plot development from the previous novel in the series, Cast in Silence, which is both confirmed and continued here. I still don't care for it. Speaking of plot, somehow I didn't find the plot in this particular novel as interesting as some others in the series (which in no way means I found it entirely uninteresting or didn't like it). This may merely be because I'm very much waiting for some developments that these events delayed yet further.All that being said, while I suspect it does not stand on its own, it's a enjoyable read and I certainly wouldn't recommend against it.

Plot: 4 stars
Characters: 4 stars
Style: 4 stars
Pace: 3 1/2 stars

There are some really gorgeous bits in here, and pieces that made me want to just savor the words. They're few and far between in a slightly too long book for its content. Still, an enjoyable read.

Decent but not stellar - I think she tosses these books off without putting much effort into them.
