Cast in Moonlight (Chronicles of Elantra, #0.5)Cast in Moonlight by Michelle Sagara West

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I picked up this novella I was looking for something short and diverting. When I saw that it was a Harlequin imprint, I was...nervous. I wasn't looking for a romance.

It isn't. And it was short and diverting.

It's an interesting fantasy crime procedural, set in a city ruled by a dragon, with humans, Barani, Aerians, Tha'alani, and Leontines. Magic is real, and politics are complicated.

The novel is a prequel, of sorts, to the Chronicles of Elantra series of books, and I'm sure some of what was unclear to me would have made more sense if I'd read the books in the order of their publication, but even so, I enjoyed this. Will probably give the rest of the series a shot.

I quite enjoyed that series, as well as her Sun Sword series. Complex and engaging characters, well thought out political environment, diverse cultures, etc. Altogether, very engaging.

I have read/listened to some in this series I have stopped for a while since it was too much one right after the other.
