My biggest complaint about this book is that it is number twelve in a series. Unfortunately NetGalley needs to update their series displays, unless it’s in the synopsis you can’t tell if it’s a series book. Yes, shame on me, I should have gone onto and checked, but you see a pretty cover and a cool blurb and you get excited and you click. So, I think this book would have been much better if I was actually committed to the series, since there were eleven books that came before it.

The story and great characters of Michelle Sagara’s Chronicles of Elantra is a definite draw to read more in this series. I need to go back to book one and begin again, this one was only a teaser. I enjoyed the story and through the characters were intriguing. There was so much going on that at times the book was overwhelming. The main character, Kaylin, is a bit stereotypical within the fantasy genre, but I did want to read more about her. She was a strong female lead, but toed the line of the too headstrong to carry the plot forward type.

Cast in Flight moves forward a very established world of Elantra. The main character, Kaylin, takes on an injured Aerian (a flying police officer of sorts), Sergeant Moran dar Carafel, as a roommate. But, with her new roommates comes a lot more problems, like an assassination attempt and the promise of many more. You would think protecting Moran would have the Aerian act a little more helpful…but it doesn’t, so Kaylin has to find out what secrets Moran is hiding and why everyone wants her dead.

“Kaylin had what she called an allergy to magic, at least when she was trying to be polite.”

Private Kaylin Neya already has Dragons and Barrani as roommates. Adding one injured, flightless Aerian to her household should be trivial. Sure, the Aerian is Sergeant Moran dar Carafel, but Kaylin's own sergeant is a Leontine, the definition of growly and fanged. She can handle one Aerian.

But when a walk to the Halls of Law becomes a street-shattering magical assassination attempt on the sergeant, Kaylin discovers that it's not the guest who's going to be the problem: it's all of the people who suddenly want Moran dar Carafel dead. And though Moran refuses to tell her why she's being targeted, Kaylin is determined to discover her secret and protect her at all costs--even if keeping Moran safe means dealing with Aerian politics, angry dragons and something far more sinister.

The Sex Bucket List – An Original and Enjoyable Contemporary by Prescott Lane

The name and genre this book is listed in do not give it justice. The cover, name, and everything else lead you to believe this is gonna be another one of those explicit erotica contemporary romances that are really nothing more than a bunch of sex scenes and little plot. But, this book is nothing of the sort. I was surprised that it is classified within erotica, because I would have thought this would be a straight up romance. Yes, it’s hot – but there is a whole lot more going on than just sexy time.
