Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Cast in Ruin by Michelle Sagara. This is a fantasy novel and is the seventh in the series.
Here is the product description:
Seven corpses are discovered in the streets of a Dragon's fief. All identical, down to their clothing.Beginning:
Kaylin Neya is assigned to discover who they were, who killed them—and why. Is the evil lurking at the borders of Elantra preparing to cross over?
At least the investigation delays her meeting with the Dragon Emperor. And as the shadows grow longer over the fiefs, Kaylin must use every skill she's ever learned to save the people she's sworn to protect. Sword in hand, dragons in the sky, this time there's no retreat and no surrender…
The worst thing about near-world-ending disasters according to Sergeant Marcus Kassan--at least the ones that had miraculously done little damage--was the paperwork they generated.Friday 56:
The carriage took them to Ablayne, no farther. Given that it was an Imperial Carriage, Kaylin understood why. Dragons were touchy about their personal land.
