Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week I am spotlighting Cast in Sorrow by Michelle Sagaara. I got this eARC from NetGalley. It is the 9th book in her Cast in... fantasy series. Here is the description:
THE END OF HER JOURNEY IS ONLY THE BEGINNING…Beginning:
The Barrani would be happy to see her die. So Kaylin Neya is a bit surprised by her safe arrival in the West March. Especially when enemies new and old surround her and those she would call friends are equally dangerous…
And then the real trouble starts. Kaylin's assignment is to be a "harmoniste"—one who helps tell the truth behind a Barrani Recitation. But in a land where words are more effective than weapons, Kaylin's duties are deadly. With the wrong phrase she could tear a people further asunder. And with the right ones…well, then she might be able to heal a blight on a race.
If only she understood the story….
To say that Private Kaylin Neya was out of her element was to master the art of understatement.Friday 56:
No one spoke. They looked at Kaylin, looked at her dress—and the hole that wasn't actually all that big—and said nothing. They said it really loudly.
