Cast in Fury by Michelle Sagara

Where did I get it?

Have a copy on my ereader!


When a minority race of telepaths is suspected of causing a near-devastating tidal wave, Private Kaylin Neya is summoned to Court—and into a PR nightmare. To ease racial tensions, the emperor has commissioned a play, and the playwright has his own ideas about who should be the focus.…

But Kaylin works her best magic behind the scenes, and though she tries to stay neutral, she is again drawn into a world of politics—and murder. To make matters worse, Marcus, her trusted sergeant, gets stripped of his command, leaving Kaylin vulnerable. Now she’s juggling two troubling cases, and even magic’s looking good by comparison. But then nobody ever said life in the theater was easy.


Kind of cool. Seems like an older cover though. It just has that feel.

Initial Thoughts

This is kind of a confusing series sometimes but I think I’m liking it so far. This was a reread for me because I’m trying to get up to date on the series without forgetting what came before it. I’m doing good so far.

My New BFF

I think Merrin is my new bff in this one. I think she’s a great character. She’s a different race than all the humans children she takes care of and she doesn’t let that stop her. Since she can’t have kids of her own she adopts all that she can. I think she’s a great character and someone to be admired.

My Crush

I love Severn a lot but I really wish there was more character development with him. We don’t know that much background information on him yet. Also there’s a potential love interest in there that the author isn’t doing anything with yet and I really wish she would. It’s almost worst than the whole love at first sight thing.

Writing Style

This book was a lot easier to follow than the others before it. The plot made more sense and I didn’t get lost reading it. I think this book has a lot of potential and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

Closing Thoughts

I think this is a great series for people to start. I feel like it’s supposed to be a middle grade book but it’s fine for anyone over that too. There’s a whole new world in this book and the author does a great job with it. Hopefully she keeps it up in the next books and it becomes even better.


“Is there anyone’s life story you don’t want to know?”
