Those threats from the Consort against the cohort find Kaylin retracting her dinner invitation. Not that it does any good, for the Consort intends to free the trapped and end the Barrani torment.
Author: Michelle Sagara
At the heart of a political firestorm, Annarion intends to undertake the Test of Name, and the rest of the cohort insist on going with. They almost caused the destruction of the High Halls once already.
Sentient Towers guard the world against Shadow lest all of Elantra be devoured. But a gray zone exists where the rules are different, and Kaylin must face all new dangers from a far distant past.
One assassination attempt after another has Kaylin up in arms…and Moran up in flight, as both battle the politics and ancient magics of their world.
