Any day that starts with dragon arguments is going to be bad.Kaylin returned from the West March in one piece. Now that piece is fraying. She’s not at home in the Imperial Palace—and she never intends to be. All she wants is normal garden-variety criminals and a place of her own. Of course, normal in her new life involves a dragon as a roommate, but she can handle that.She can’t as easily handle the new residents to the city she polices, because one of them is Nightshade’s younger brother. On a night when she should be talking to landlords in perfectly normal buildings, she’s called to the fief—by Teela. A small family disagreement has become a large, complicated problem: Castle Nightshade’s latent magic is waking.And it’s not the only thing.

Ooooooooooo, things are getting so goooood! I’m really excited for this next installment in the Chronicles of Elantra. I’m kind of hoping that this might be the book where Kaylin finally meets the Emperor and the Dragon Court. Of course, she might get fried for it, but I’m really looking forward to it. I would also like to see some forward movement in her relationship with Severn. I believe I’ve been patient long enough. If you don’t know the series, I must say you should really read them in order. Each story is a lot like a police procedural, but it takes place in a fantasy setting (high fantasy, lots of great world-building and some incredible characters/creatures crop up that throughout the books). And there are a few over-arching mysteries surrounding Kaylin herself, mostly about her abilities and where they come from. I won’t spoil it, but I would highly recommend checking this world out!
