Review: Cast in Sorrow


The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous...

And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste"-one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly. With the wrong phrase she could tear a people further asunder. And with the right ones...well, then she might be able to heal a blight on a race.

If only she understood the story....

This is one series that I have loved from the very beginning but this is the first book that I have actually read.  The others were in audio format so seeing how the names are actually spelled was a bit of a shock and one that made me decide that listening rather then reading a fantasy is the way to go.  

Even struggling through some of the names, I have to say that I absolutely loved this book!  Kaylin has yet again done the unexpected and managed me to make it work.  All of my favorite characters were more then present and there were a lot of twists and turns.  

I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys fantasy.   The genre of fantasy is harder to pin down because for the most part it is urban but set in another world.  Rather unique and very enjoyable.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.



  1. I have read most of this series, think it's time to go back to the library and find the ones I haven't!

  2. I will have to try this series. I do love your book reviews, we like a lot of the same things. I just tried the His Dark Assassin series over the weekend and have loved them so far (first two).
