Teaser Tuesday: Cast in Honor by Michelle Sagara

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser (from 10% of the eARC):
For his part, Gilbert was stiff as dry wood and about as expressive. He laid his arms on the armrest of his large, curvebacked chair and left them there as if he was clinging to it for dear life.
This week my teaser comes from the most recent book in the Chronicles of Elantra. Cast in Honor by Michelle Sagara is book 12 in this series. I have been reading this fantasy series since it began. I got my review copy from NetGalley. Here is the description:
In the aftermath of a vicious battle between darkness and light, the city of Elantra has emerged victorious. But Shadows continue to haunt every corner of its streets… 

Elantra stands strong, but countless numbers of Hawks, the city's staunchest protectors, were lost in the brutal attack. Humans, Barrani, Aerians, Leontines—none of the races emerged unscathed from the defense of the city. Homes were lost, families were scattered…and the outcast Barrani Lord Nightshade is missing from his castle in the fiefs.

Yet as the chaos surrounding the battle begins to wane, Private Kaylin Neya's duties must resume, despite her grief. Called in to investigate a triple murder in a quiet part of town, Kaylin and her companions are soon embroiled in a case that is anything but routine. Evidence of the deadly Shadows that still threaten the city leads to hints of ancient, forgotten magics…and everything can be traced directly to Ravellon, the heart of the Shadows and the darkness they contain.

But it is there that Lord Nightshade will be found—if he still survives.


  1. His tell is gripping the armrests. Maybe he's getting control of himself before acting?

    Here's my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/11/17/teaser-tuesdays-136-h20/

  2. This looks like a really good book - and series! I guess I'd have to start at the beginning. :-) Here's my Teaser for this week: http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2015/11/teaser-tuesdaysfirst-chapter-first_17.html

  3. I love myself some fantasy, so maybe I should check this one out. I do feel like I need to read a bit more to really know if it's for me, but I like it so far :D Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  8. I don't generally read much adult (or YA) fantasy. I'm more likely to read fantasy meant for much younger readers. Second childhood, I guess. This one sounds interesting, though -- love the teaser.

  9. Love those long running series. Sounds good.
