Publisher's Summary

WHO WILL CLAIM THE TOWER?

After the near-destruction of the High Halls, Corporal Kaylin Neya is looking forward to resuming her patrol. But once more an empty Tower stands in Elantra, and Kaylin's companions won't let an advantage slip by. They see the Tower as a base to fight Shadow; the Dragon Bellusdeo, as a protection for the cohort; Sedarias, as a potential hoard. And others are interested as well.

Kaylin knows when she's in over her head. Claiming a Tower is not the future she wants. And the Tower has strict requirements—ones that daunt even the Dragons and the Barrani. But as the various factions strategize, the Shadows are making their own plans. They still want to cross into Elantra, and this might be the perfect chance.

Poor Story no progress really

16 books in and still Kaylin is the most obtuse person ever. she does not learn, she does not listen and clearly makes little to no effort in either case.. The girl seriously needs to learn to just shut the hell up and do as she's told once in awhile. 16 books in and she has yet to learn anything or attempt to learn anything about being Chosen or how to actually use her marks. We are yet again also subjected to a book in which a good half is tied up with Kaylins feelings, her self doubts and how how everyone thinks she's dumb (which she is).

We still no nothing about Hope aside from the scraps that we are given. You'd think by now we could get some details on him but nope.

I'd give this book 2.5 stars but that's not allowed so ill go 3

Another installment

Lately, it has felt like this series has started meandering. Kaylin learns things and has insights, but then forgets what she knows and is shocked to learn the information again. She keeps bemoaning her lack of knowledge in the moment, but hasn’t changed her efforts in any significant manner.

I’m starting to feel like this series is going nowhere with more threads being added and cohesion being lost

Better and better

Each book just seems to be better than the last. Kristine Hvam is such a great voice for this series. It’s a shame we will have to wait another year for the next book.

A great addition

I loved this book. This series has been very long, but I can honestly say that I still enjoy it. This addition to the series focuses on building friendships and repairing relationships. Kaylin is still the main focus but you get to learn more about the 12 and some of Kaylin’s name bound. You also see plenty of character development in both major and minor characters as well as the main character.

I was excited to hear/read the main plot pushed forward and several lingering subplots get addressed. We also got to hear/read more about shadow and some of the various other races that are still kicking around both in and out of the fiefs. The focus on friendship and what it means to the various characters was my absolute favorite part though.

I love this series. I don’t love every book equally but this one was amazing. I am sorry it is over and I will have to wait a year until I get to hear/read more about this world and Kaylin’s adventures.

Perfect continuation

I loved it! I loved how we learned about the giant spiders more. I loved the struggle in getting the dragon settled-ish. I loved the world discriptions.

wow needs repeated listens

We got to know more about the shadows and Ravellon in this volume. I also really like that Bellusdeo's journey took a giant step in this volume
Ever since I read the second Severn's book( Sword and Shadow)I've been rereading the whole series and appreciating them even more
When I listen to this book the first time I just wanted to know what happened and focused on following the story about the tower and the struggle to master(?) it The second time around, I listened to it more carefully and discovered details that I've missed the first time. It just seems that in all her stories, every time I listen to them there are new discoveries, new ways of understanding the threads and I never get tired of listening to them. Of course the narrator being so very good at voicing all the different characters are an excellent plus.

Sagara does it again!

This is an audiobook that I started some months ago, during a turbulent time in my life, and it offered me wisdom, adventure, a reason to smile, and a feeling like I was being hugged by the universe at large, or perhaps like Helen is sometimes maternal towards Kaylin. (I’m going to assume you are reading this as a fellow fan of the series, if not, please start from 0.5 - there are some violent scenes I would not have usually tolerated, but it’s worth hanging in with this universe.)

This is the first time I haven’t listened to the entire audiobook in as close to one sitting as possible (these tend towards Quite Long, given the page count of the books) but every time I picked it up, there it all was for me, that feeling of coming home. I admit to being very frustrated with the dangling love triangle, because I’m usually interested in knowing how something will end and we got Almost to a conclusion and then … like eight more books. And -Spoiler alert!- it is still (grrr) dangling. But the surprise relationship made up for it, and I am growing quite fond of the cohort, Mandaron (sorry, I haven’t read the books in a while after discovering how super awesome the audio books are) and Taranus (I’m positive that is wrong spelling, sorry, too) especially.

Thanks so much to the publisher who keeps extending this series. And now we even have a spin off!

Cast in Conflict has everything that made me fall in love with the series to begin with, and I am astounded that Michelle Sagara can continuously deliver such a marvelous universe that seems like it never gets old. Their narrator is beyond exceptional - how does she manage so many voices consistently across these numerous books?

Loved them all

Started with book one and listened through Conflict. As the credits are spoke, I think to myself, I’m going to do this again in a few years. Maybe upon second and third listens I will be able to grasp more of the complex Wordverse and not want to punch a dragon or two. There are so many potential storylines from here. I hope my positives intentions to write faster reach Sagara and her keyboard with profound results.

I can't get enough!

I've read it twice and now listened to it to and I, as always, love every facet!
Bellusdeo...she's tugging at my heart.
Is it to early to beg for the next installment? All I know is I WANT MORE!
