Cast in Fury by Michelle Sagara

"Cast in Fury" is the fourth book in the Chronicles of Elantra by Michelle Sagara. Sadly for us, the next book isn't out yet! It's due to come out later this summer though, so hopefully I won't have to long of a wait to get my hands on it, because I love this series! While I'm waiting I've ordered the first book in another series she's written, so we'll see how that goes.

In "Cast in Fury" Kaylin is thrown into a PR nightmare, which is an awkward situation for her considering she's never been known for being the most diplomatic person around. After seeing the Tha'alani go out to face the tidal wave in the last book, the people of the city believe that instead of trying to stop the wave as they were really doing, the Tha'alani were invoking the wave to destroy the city. Now the Imperial Playwright has been ordered to write a play that will help ease the tension.

Unfortunately Rennick, the playwright, really has no clue what the real situation was like, nor does he really have any understanding of the Tha'alani. Kaylin and Severn understand the Tha'alani better than most, and they were directly involved in the situation with the tidal wave, so they've been sent to Rennick as advisers. A job that will not be easy.

To make life even more complicated their beloved Leontine Sargent has been arrested for murder. Worried about the closest person she's ever had to a father, Kaylin begins to investigate, and finds a tangled web that will take all her skill to unravel and stay alive at the same time.
