Review: Cast in Ruins by Michelle Sagara

4 STARS  MAYBE 5 STARS if I had read the rest.

Cast in Ruins is the seventh book in the series and I have not read any of them before. I feel quite lost trying to figure out the different spieces, Who are the leaders,  Who are good guys and bad guys. What magic exists. I would not recommend starting this series with book 7. Kaylin Neyas is a private on their police force.
It took a long time for me to figure out everything I good understand.  I wish I had the time and money to buy and read the first 6 books. I am sure I would have loved the story.
I will look for the past books and read future ones. They were complex world who I loved to learn about.
Kaylin has her work with the Hawks and as chosen is called away to the fife to look into the deaths of 7 identical women. No one can see why they died and who they were. Servern is her partner in this case.
Kaylin before seeing to the case ends up in a battle at the borders with the shadows. She takes control of the one who is fighting her people against his will and gives her his sword which shrinks down to fit her.
Kaylin is also taking lessons from Lord Diarmat ln court manners. Diarmat is one of the dragons and does not care for her.  She also learns from Lord Sanabalis another court Dragon Who does likes her. Lord Tiamares is over the fife and is considered a  young dragon. The tower where he lives and protects from avatar is Tara who can read minds in her tower.  The people love her but are scared of dragons.
Arkon is a dragon over the library and gets involved with Kaylin case he is over the other 3 dragons but under the emperror.  Their is one more dragon that is known as outcast and he his the bad guy and controls the shadows.
When Kaylin begins her case it is easier to follow what is happening. Like what I did understand.
I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review from Netgalley.
