As a member of the Hawks, sworn to defend the city of Elantra, Private Kaylin Neva has managed to maintain friendly relations with the five races that coexist within the city boundaries. Assigned to assist the emperor's chosen playwright in composing a work that will ease the tensions between the telepathic Tha'alani and the humans who believe them responsible for the city's near-destruction by a tidal wave, the unorthodox but effective Neva finds her work complicated by the arrest of her longtime friend and sergeant and his replacement by a Hawk who is a stickler for the rules. Sagara's latest addition to her ongoing fantasy detective series (Cast in Shadow; Cast in Courtlight; Cast in Secret) confront timeless and timely issues such as racial tolerance and the meaning of honor. A solid addition to fantasy collections.
