Editorial Reviews:

Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered -- and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin.…

Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.

But children are once again dying, and a dark and familiar pattern is emerging. Kaylin is ordered back into Nightshade with a partner she knows she can't trust, a Dragon lord for a companion and a device to contain her powers -- powers that no other human has. Her task is simple -- find the killer, stop the murders…and survive the attentions of those who claim to be her allies!

Summary: Great first book to this series!
Comment: I bought this book and once it arrived it sat on my shelf for several months. I couldn't get beyond the cover, which didn't give me a lot of confidence in the book.
However, when I finally pulled it off the shelf and started reading, I was sucked right in to the story.
Loved the characters, the variety of them, the depth, and their struggle with light and dark within themselves and each other.
Thought the relationship (if you can call it that) that Kaylin has with Lord Nightshade was awesome..the hint of sensuality..
Very impressed with the depth of the story and the journey it takes you on...never quite knowing what's around the corner (or who).
Left me wanting more.

Summary: shadows of the past, shadows of things to come
Comment: A wonderfully written exploration of the fragile human experience. The past haunts, blocks sight, effects all facets of being... even when it is a distorted view or memory. A wonderful look at the power of relationships built in troubled times, the destructive power of events half seen and the effects of the no win choices that face real people. Friendship, love, dark powers and powerful non human races make a deep and rich world of fantasy with enough elements of our own world for us to relate and understand and enough differences to be magical.

Summary: Read every word or your lost
Comment: I really enjoyed this book by Michelle Sagara. This is the first book of hers that I have ever read and I was pleased that it kept my interest through the whole thing. The writing style was unique and quirkie in that you really have to pay attention to every word or you really become confused. I actualy talked about the plot, dialogue, and writing method with other members of my family that I recomended the book to.
Good read, not best for multi-task reading, great for an escape.

Summary: Awful, awful, I want my wasted time back
Comment: Very intriguing plot line, but very badly delivered. If I had a dollar for every time the word "Hawk" was used, I'd be able to pay off my new car! Geez, I understand the character was a member of the Hawks, I don't need to read "I'm a Hawk" on every other page! Whomever edited this book should be fired. This reads like a first draft dictated to a typing program. It's really sad because the story idea is very good, but its buried under so much unnecessary stuff. Save your money and treat yourself to something better.
