Summary

“Enjoyable, entertaining, engaging fantasy.” (Tor.com)

At the Emperor's Command

Multiple races carefully navigate the City of Elantra under the Dragon Emperor’s wing. His Imperial Wolves are executioners, the smallest group to serve in the Halls of Law. The populace calls them assassins.

Every wolf candidate must consent to a full examination by the Tha’alani, one of the most feared and distrusted races in Elantra for their ability to read minds. Most candidates don’t finish their job interviews.

Severn Handred, the newest potential recruit, is determined to face and pass this final test — even if by doing so he’s exposing secrets he has never shared.

When an interrogation uncovers the connections to a two-decade-old series of murders of the Tha’alani, the Wolves are commanded to hunt. Severn’s first job will be joining the chase. From the High Halls to the Tha’alani quarter, from the Oracles to the Emperor, secrets are uncovered, tensions are raised and justice just might be done…if Severn can survive.

Brilliant

I have been looking forward to this book for months, and I have to say it definitely didn't disappoint. I love the Cast In series and have read/listened to all of them so far, and Severn is by far one of my favourite characters - I'm really hoping that he and Kaylin finally get together - so when I saw there was going to be a series more focused on his side of things I was utterly delighted.

This book is set right back at the beginning and tells you how he became a Wolf, and many other aspects of his story that you get hints of in the other series. It is, as always, well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Also, I am glad they kept Khristine Hvam as the narrator as not only is she one of my personal favourite when it comes to narrators, but it also really felt like a continuation of the other series as the charters were recognisable.

Would recommend, and can't wait for the next book.
