She lives in Toronto with her long-suffering husband and her two children, and to her regret has no dogs. In Leontine. The numbers of civilian complaints had, in theory, peaked. The Hawks who regularly manned these desks were generally older and certainly better suited to the task. They appeared to appreciate the help about as much as the help appreciated being there.

Two departments over, the Hawks required to man desks visible—and accessible—to the public would probably have disagreed. In Leontine. The numbers of civilian complaints had, in theory, peaked. The Hawks who regularly manned these desks were generally older and certainly better suited to the task. They appeared to appreciate the help about as much as the help appreciated being there.
For some of the officers who worked in the Halls of Law, growl would be figurative. In the case of Kaylin Neya, it was literal: her Sergeant was a Leontine.
We deal with the public accused of stealing, mugging, and murder. I realize that. His color varied from report to report, as did his activities; he reportedly breathed fire, ate people—or at least large, stray dogs—and leveled buildings.
He was alternately the usual Dragon size—which, to be fair, was not small—or giant; he was also deafening. This last part was accurate. The rest, not so much. Kaylin, of course, knew the Dragon being described.
Dragons were forbidden, by law, from assuming their native forms within the City of Elantra without express permission from the Eternal Emperor.
Lord Tiamaris, however, had received that dispensation. He did have an impressive wingspan, but none of the eyewitnesses had claimed to see him fly. Most of the witnesses, however, claimed that Tiamaris led a small army. The descriptions of this army varied almost as widely as descriptions of Tiamaris himself.

As their destination was the fief of Tiamaris, no formal census had been taken or even considered. They were also, however, absent from the civilian reports, and therefore not her problem. She did not, however, point out that they were blind or out of their minds; she transcribed most of what they said with unfailing attention. This was, in part, because in the end Marcus would have to read most of these, or at least sign them.
He loathed paperwork. On the bright side? Elani, however, now had a stream running along one side of the street, and the blood-red flowers that had popped up in the wake of the refugees were proving more hardy than tangleknot grass.

While this is NOT the dragon court book, I would call it the dragon book - we get a lot of creation story and explanation story in here. On the personal front, Kaylin and Severn have a talk that was years overdue and unavoidable after what happened in the previous book. I adored the fact that now that Kaylin has more of an idea about where her powers come from and what a Chosen is, that she is able to
