notes on rereading: I'd forgotten what a complete spaz Kaylin is. It's pretty great. ( )

The second book in the Chronicles of Elantra has Kaylin Neya going into the Barrani High Court to try to heal the heir to the courts. Naturally, there is a time crunch. She just has a couple of days to sort things out before all Hell breaks loose.

In the course of the story, Kaylin learns vastly more about the role of the High Courts and what they were designed to contain. She gets a name even though humans don't have names in the sense that the immortal species do. Kaylin also comes to terms with what Severn did that caused her to flee the fiefs and to flee Severn and build a new life for herself in Elantra.

This story is a richly detailed fantasy filled with fascinating characters and wonderful worldbuilding. I love the dragons and the Barrani. I also love the leontines and aerians. I think Kaylin is a wonderful character who is growing and learning more about herself in each of these stories.

I both read and listened to this story. Khristine Hvam does a wonderful job with the voices and with the pacing in the story. ( )

A strong female protagonist, a convoluted political system, a well thought out world that's barely been touched on and the promise of intrigue around every turn. This series won't be for everyone. Once upon a time fantasy was all I read and then UF finally really kicked off and I found myself deep in that world. Whereas UF can be gritty, it is usually lighter in the story line than fantasy and a quicker read but I'm really finding myself enjoying these books, interspersed with "lighter" UF and PNR fluff. This book isn't anywhere as heavy a read as George R.R. Marin or his ilk, but still a bit thicker than said UF. Definitely recommend UF readers give it a try though! ( )

this series has a REALLY bad chosen one problem, and I'm only on book two. I'm loving her writing and I devoured both books, but I'm going to try a different series and hope I am not as annoyed by the main character. ( )

Warning! This series is addictive! You finish one, you have to go get the next! Like potatoes chips or corn chips, escapist fiction, just for fun but well done.

In the old days, before the Dragon Emperor--sometimes called the Eternal Emperor by those responsible for toadying--had invested the Halls of Law with the laws which governed the Empire, angry Dragons simply ate the idiots who were stupid enough to irritate them.
