Cast in Moonlight (Chronicles of Elantra, #0.5) by Michelle Sagara After reading the first book in Sagara's new series set in the world of Elantra, I decided to go back to this "first" novella in the Chronicles of Elantra, as the timelines run somewhat concurrently. This is a fast-paced book, with not much background on Kaylin, other than she's been caught by the Hawk Lord when she tried to assassinate him--at the ripe old age of 13. She's a fief rat and life in the city is new and different--but not so much as she becomes embroiled in the investigation of several child murders.

2017 review: This is a prequel to the series, and tells of how Kaylin Neya first came to the Hawks. It was written well into the series, and I'm torn on whether a reader should start here or go back to it after several books in. In some ways, the books are more intriguing--especially her reactions to Severn and Nightshade--without this backgorund. Still, whereever you read the book in the scheme of the series, it provides an interesting basis for Kaylin's character and motivation. It doesn't answer all the questions--in fact, it might present more than it answers, but to me? That's a good thing.
