    ONLINE BOOK Cast in Oblivion The Chronicles of Elantra #14 – vbulletin–mods.co.uk So I obviously like the series because I'm reading book #14 but much of the book felt like a very large info dump We have stuff from the dragon court's background info on the Barrani We have from the Arkon We get from all the people in Kaylin's headHonestly very little happens in most of the bookEven though there's a lot of info dump you d

#the sense that #
sense that events and issues that are at the forefront in Cast in Oblivion have been bubbling along since book 8 Cast in Peril if not before In fact much of the action in every book since Cast in Peril has its roots in the journey that begins in that bookIn other words don t start here If any of the above or below sound interesting of the above or below sound interesting with either the preuel novella Cast in Moonlight or the first book in the series Cast in ShadowAt the beginning of the series it felt like urban fantasy albeit urban fantasy set in a high fantasy world As the series and Kaylin have evolved it has become an epic fantasy with Kaylin Nera human mortal flawed young and Chosen as the point of view into a world that is run by people much powerful than she Kaylin is always operating way above her weight class and suffering through impostor syndrome at every turnShe s awesome not because she s powerful but because she never stops trying no matter how scared she is or how many of those powerful people either underestimate or overprotect her at every turnIn the end this is a story about friendship and the heights and depths that people can and will reach in its name It s also a story about family of choice and the ties that one chooses to bind oneself withAnd it s about the power of truth and honesty And especially about the dangerous NATURE AND PAINFUL TRUTH OF THE POWER OF CHOICEESCAPE and painful truth of the power of choiceEscape A I love this series but you can t get into it here And I ll confess that it takes a while each year to get back into it The story is like a spider s web sticky and interlocked at every turnIt s also difficult to review I can say that I love this series and I do but that s not informative Trying to say why I love this series is awkward But I ll tryI do love a highly convoluted political fantasy and this series has certainly become that The Barrani who are this series euivalent of elves sortakinda are immortal They hold grudges for millennia As do their ancestral enemies the dragons Who are also immortal And currently ruling the empire the Barrani are part ofThe part of the story that we are in revolves around family politics and a sibling rivalry that has literally gone on for centuries But even though the Barrani are immortal it has not made them wise not in any wayKaylin is in the position that she is in because one Barrani hoped against all hope that she might be able to save his brother The brother that he became outcaste for and that word means exactly what you think it means And this in a society where people are much likely to ill their siblings than either love or trust themThis series also has its roots in urban fantasy complet.

E with the reuisite snark although that snarkitude has become oddly similar to that in both JD Robb s In Death series and Lindsay Buroker s Emperor s Edge series It s the ind of smirky and sometimes gallows humor that draws its rueful chuckles from how much we have come to The Unseen Wonder know and care for these characters They aren t telling jokes they are telling on each other with honest love honest regard and occasionally an honest desire to put one over on their friends and frenemiesBut in the end what draws me back to this series is the character at its heart Kaylin Nera She began the series in Cast in Moonlight attempting to commit a really grand suicide by cop only to find herself adopted instead of imprisonedShe is a character who has broken far far out of her original setting in the crime and shadow riddled fiefs where she learned toeep her head down and became one of the criminals At first she seemed as if she was just plain grateful to have become a very young and very immature Hawk one of the law enforcers of this world But her circumstances eep forcing her to become and her internal voice is the scared uncertain yet determined voice of anyone who has ever come so far and so fast from where they began that they are just certain that it all not merely can be taken away but shouldAnd she tries anywayOne final note one of the interesting themes in this particular entry is about the power and the responsibility of choice and just how different that perspective of choice is depending on where the chooser stands on any scale of wealthy poverty power and responsibility Kaylin nows that in her early life even her terrible decisions were her choice Her alternative choice to committing the crimes of her early years was death but it was still her choice The Adversary of this story is not strictly speaking evil Instead it offers choices to people who choose to take a path that seems evil in pursuit of power But the choice and the offering of that choice is not evil in and of itself only the resultI m still thinking about that and probably will be when the untitled 15th book in this series comes out hopefully this time next year And not nearly soon enough 25 starsThe last uarter of this was uite good Until then however it was ind of excruciating to get through At about the halfway point I realized I felt like I was listening to an on going info dump being framed as an on going mental masturbation exercise I also had a very difficult time figuring out which character was speaking and whether or not they were speaking out loud to everyone or mentally to one specific person or several specific personsAnd yeah I m REALLY tired of an MC that s been unwilling to embrace her own issues and power for fourteen freaking books I m tired of it as a pacing device I m tired of her always saving the day by bumblingintuiting her way through it I m ready for Sagara to stick a fork in this trope because it s way over done 35 starsAfter reading fourteen books I m pretty well invested in this series I love the world Sagara has built and have come to care about the characters who inhabit it ButThis book suffers from the same problems as its predecessors primarily too much talk about magic and not enough action For about half the book hundreds of pages Kaylin and the cohort work up to the dinner with the Consort while talking about magic then during the get together talk about magic and afterwards talk about it some Lots of speculation about what might happen during the Test of Name and what lies in the Tower For almost two thirds of the book there are perhaps a couple of minor conflicts each resolved within a scant number of pages For most of the book I wanted to scream Get on with it already One of my other primary gripes about this series has been the lack of personal growth on Kaylin s part To my relief she appears in this book at least to be annoyed by the fact that others see her as a child or a mascot book at least to be annoyed by the fact that others see her as a child or a mascot that she finally needs to learn about what it means to be Chosen We ll see if she actually does something about her ignorance in the next book As far as her personal life she does finally seem to be looking a bit at Severn but it
#s very early #
very early and as with the other books he largely disappears in this one even when ostensibly he is present Poor guyDespite my frustrations I enjoyed when things actually did happen in this book and no doubt will read the next one I just hope I ll have to wade through less talk and pondering to get to the meat of it I hate everyone who reads this book before me Very good end of arc The beginning of a new one coming soon I always like the way the elf ueen sorry I m an audiobook reader so I have no idea about spelling half the time I enjoy how she reads When they spend time in court I always find those books the most fun I wish the dragon could go with her I think I figured out the dragon s hoard The fight to hold off shadows I So I obviously like the series because I m reading book 14 but much of the book felt like a very large info dump We have stuff from the dragon court s background info on the Barrani We have from the Arkon We get from all the people in Kaylin s headHonestly very little happens in most of the bookEven though there s a lot of info dump you definitely can t start here This is all building on things you should already now and people you ve already encountered None of it would make sense without earlier booksI miss her doing active Hawk stuff I miss her doing midnight runs as a midwife I can understand how work can stop although really Tain Teela Kaylin and Severn are ALL excused from work but I don t understand how she s suddenly not necessary as a midwife right now I miss TaraI m frustrated that people think she should figure out the Chosen stuff all on her own I m glad she s making progress but it s still not fairAnd Severn has pretty much no personality at all in this book He s present when needed fights when needed and provides a set of eyes for Kaylin to see through when needed That s it Need to ReviewNote There were a few moments when I argued at The Book I Know book I now s silly You can t argue with a book but I did This series is one where I can safely say that I ll wait till the end to see how I feel Those parts where I argued with the book I ll probably do it again the next time I read it but it doesn t matter because I finished The book is what it is because I want to argue with it. Exists beneath the High Halls It is the High Court’s duty to jail the creature at its heart even if it means that Barrani victims are locked in the cage with it The Consort is willing to do almost anything to free the trapped and end their eternal torment And she needs the help of Kaylin’s houseguests and Kaylin herself Failure won’t be death it’s Hell And that’s where Kaylin is goi. Cast in Oblivion The Chronicles of Elantra #14Audible versionI find Kailyn puerile in all things if I m honest This book did little to assuage me of that feeling I should disclose this isn t a new feeling I listened to the audible version of this book although the narrator did well through no fault of her own this book When you are fourteen books into a series obviously there is something that you like about the series and has ept you reading book after book I am no exception I love the overall premise and potential of the story I like several of the characters Kaylin Nightshade and Mandoran being my top three favorites I find myself liking Hope and Spike a little bit after this book when previously I found the familiar very annoying I also liked Evarrim Ynpharion and Emmerian in this one The world building is well done The overall story continues at a slow build My biggest gripe with this particular book is that over 60% of it is comprised of discussion and introspection Okay now granted at this point it s book 14 and I have the grudging expectation that there is going to be a great deal of the main character Kaylin navel gazing This author loves to do it The first half of the book is largely a long winded discussion rehashing everything we as readers have learned from previous books with a light sprinkling of new information I wanted less telling and doing There are also a few technical word errors that need editing I DID like that Kaylin figures out some things about her abilities as Chosen and can finally understand other things as well Yes thank you It s about time She also has some brief and almost but not uite satisfying interaction with Nightshade I am glad that she doesn t completely ignore him and there is some minuscule resolve there I like that Nightshade actually gets a face to face moment with Kaylin it s been several books now and even an interpersonal comment instead of just being a source of information related to the immediate problem at hand The situation with Severn well if you follow the pattern then he s up next uite possibly the best moment in the book is had between Ynpharion and Kaylin Haha Loved reading this book again there s so many big reveals and yeah can t wait for Cast in Wisdom Especially since there was mention of the fiefs and the boundaries in this book which is what the next book is going to be aboutFirst read November 7th 2018Loved reading this book I just love this series so much This book dived into another aspect of Barrani with the test since the Cohort is taking it So great and I enjoyed it so much Can t wait for the next book WARNING This rant is a personal opinionAs you can see from my review on book 1 I wrote a few months ago I m a huge fan of the series but that doesn t mean I don t get annoyed after 14 books Back to the review Repetition there was a lot of it It was the wrong ind of repetition To the point where we lose the identity of the character as they are all saying the same or similar sentences throughout the 14 booksInfro dump a lot A lot of info dump It made Gergana very mad In all senses of the wordLogic who needs it when you have magic that fixes everything when the plot is stuck for 9 hours The author does try to provide us with logic about the world and magic that sadly is still illogical to Gergana Maybe Gergana is just stupid It is a possibility Yes there were many short sentences in this book Fullstops everywhere Characaters so many Gergana is confused she no longer cares enough to remember all of them Gergana wishes she new enough to remember all of them Gergana wishes she new some of the characters but the content of the books is mainly infodumps expositions and remembering events from previous books we have already read and remember anyway This book was boring it was the wrong ind of boring Demonstrably Especially considering how much I love the world and the side characters inhabiting it There were so many words 18 hours worth of audiobook to be precise And yet nothing was said Again Despite numerous characters rambling to their hearts content I didn t even Invisible (The Curse of Avalon know who out of the 15 characters was talking 70% of the time not audiobook narrator s fault they were just too many now But I also didn t careOk all joking aside I realize that I m being selfish Since the first book I had these PERSONAL expectations of seeing Kaylin do actual detective work that doesn t involve a powerful entity trying to destroy the world with magic I wanted to see politics and interactions between the races misunderstanding and mundane stuff that the characters do in their everyday life in this amazing world Most of all I wanted to see change what if Kaylin got fired or changed jobs or God forbid get a promotion What about relationships it s been 14 books Goddammit What if two races actually started a war with each other that didn t involve a villain or magic or some random destructive force and Kaylin had to come up with a compromise What if she GREW UP Whatind of person she can change to Will she become too full of herself for a book and realize her mistake by the end of it will she fail miserably in another and have to overcome her fear and disappointment in herself in order to grow even and then save the world Will she abuse her power on purpose and then wonder whether she is deserving of it Will she get an annoying fan club that worships her an annoying fan club that worships her the Chosen and drives her nuts especially when she s trying to do her jobWhat do we get instead for 14 books Lots of actions That happens as usual somewhere else as Kaylin is stuck in her own mind thinking about her past about her friends about how she feels aboutEVERYTHING We already now how she feels we read the same stuff in every single book We hear lots of thought about names and magic and how Kaylin feels that we really don t need and and that s what I mean by me being selfish The only reason I got so triggered was not because I couldn t bear the book itself After all if it was that bad I would just stop reading and move on to something else I got triggered because the book and many of its predecessors weren t meeting my PERSONAL expectations Sure there were repetitions info dumps etc but thatdidn t use to bother ME IN THE PAST BACK WHEN I BELIEVED THE in the past back when I believed the will one day head towards the way I wanted It was the main force that ept me going even when I could feel losing brain cells reading stuff such as said nothing 28 tmes in this book Not as bad as said nothing Loudly 2 3 times what does this even mean Demons. POLITICS ARE HELLKaylin wasn’t sent to the West March to start a war Her mission to bring back nine Barrani might do just that though She traveled with a Dragon and her presence is perceived as an act of aggression in the extremely hostile world of Barrani Dragon politics Internal Barrani politics are no less deadly and Kaylin has managed barely to help the rescued Barrani evade both death
