Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered -- and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin ... Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth. But children are once again dying, and a dark and familiar pattern is emerging. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers -- powers that no other human has. Her task is simple -- find the killer, stop the murders ... and survive the attentions of those who claim to be her allies!… (més)

Michelle Sagara's The Chronicles of Elantra series is one of my favorites and this title did not disappoint, A few of the books in this series have not been as strong in my opinion but this is not one of those. The story was engaging and helped to move the plot along. I felt like I learned more about many of the characters including the protagonist in this volume. I highly recommend this book. ( )

I love the concept of this and this book had me in equal parts intrigued and confused. Intrigued, because of the different species and dynamics and plots at play. Confused, because Kaylin is searching for answers, and her limited knowledge bleeds through the written work to leave the reader equally unnerved and equally longing for answers.

Be prepared to wonder and question most things but love the story.

Definately an interesting read. I'm on to the next installment. ( )

The first book in the Chronicles of Elantra introduces Kaylin Neya. She is the youngest member of the Hawks - one of three branches of law enforcement in the city of Elantra. She was born and raised in the lawless fiefs but escaped them as a young teen ager. She bears strange and potentially dangerous marks on her arms and thighs.

She left the fiefs after her protector. an older boy named Severn, killed the two younger children who lived with them. He believed that their deaths were necessary to save Kaylin from being found and sacrificed because of those strange marks.

Kaylin has made a new life for herself among the Hawks. She has learned to read and write. She has learned the two languages she needs for her job as a Hawk. She has learned weapons. She has also learned to use her magical ability to heal even though she doesn't understand it. What she hasn't learned is magic or politics or anything else that she doesn't believe has a practical use in her work as a Hawk.

But now the murders of children have begun again in the fief of Nightshade and Kaylin is sent back in with a dragon named Tiamaris and that boy she ran from now grown and also a member of the Hawks. She has to deal with the Barrani outcaste who is Lord Nightshade and she has to track down the ones who are killing children.

To do her job, she has to confront her own magic and learn more about it when little more is known by anyone currently alive.

This was an excellent start to a new fantasy series. I combined reading this one and listening to the Audible recording of the book. Khristine Hvam did an excellent job with the narration. I liked her distinctive voices for the characters. The pacing was also excellent. ( )

This book re-reminded me why I first fell in love with fantasy well before my addiction to the paranormal and UF genres. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series. ( )

Ugh...how many stars? It took 200 of the 300 pages for me to be interested at all. If it weren't a Recommends Challenge book AND being used for the Book Bingo challenge, I never would have finished it. I did, however get interested...then it lulled again toward the end...then I was interested...then it drug...then I cried.

I doubt I'll read on. It's probably 2 1/2 stars, but I'll give it three for good measure. ( )
