Customer Reviews

All in all, a very satisfying read, and extremely well priced.
Opinionated
Overall I think, again, that the stories are too short to express all that could have been expressed.

SPOILER WARNING: This book itself, plus my review, is a spoiler if you haven't read any of the Nightrunner books by Lynn Flewelling (beginning with Luck in the Shadows (Nightrunner, Vol. 1)) or if you've only read Luck in the Shadows.

If you have read the Nightrunner series and wished the male/male sex scenes weren't always cut off, this is the short story collection for you. That being said, there's more to it than erotica (and more than just m/m erotica, even). Fitting the title, this collection offers four glimpses into "cut scenes" from the Nightrunner books, plus a short excerpt from the next book, workingly entitled The Summer Players (title WILL change) and expected to release October 2011. This collection is also peppered with fan art, selected by Lynn herself, depicting scenes from the various short stories. It's a nice touch, as well as a charming homage to her fans.

The first short, "The Misfit," follows Seregil just after his exile and into his apprenticeship with Nysander. It also details his first sexual encounter in Skala (m/m).

The second story, "The Wild," covers a short part of Alec's childhood with his father, which includes his father reminiscing about what happened between him and Alec's mother. Warning: hetero sex.

The third, "By the River," is a previously released short (mostly to fan groups) about how Seregil and Micum met. No erotica (apologies to the Seregil/Micum shippers...ha).

"The Bond" will probably be of the most interest to hardcore Nightrunner fans. No pun intended. (Okay, you got me, pun intended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a sort of gift to the readers of the Nightrunner series from author Lynn Flewelling, a slim volume containing four short stories, a preview passage from the next Nightrunner novel which will be published this coming autumn, and over forty black-and-white pieces of artwork produced by fans of the series. It really is intended for hard-core fans of the series and completists, and not for the casual reader or those who may be new to the series. I suppose I fall into the "hard-core fan" category; I was very pleased with my purchase!

The only drawback, really, is that this is a very quick read indeed (only 100 pages of text); I only wish there were many more stories included. I enjoyed all the tales, but the one which is likely to be of primary interest to fans is the last, which details Alec and Seregil's first nights together as a couple (this picks up the threads of the plot immediately following the end of the text in book 2). Now, in the broadest sense of the term I suppose this book could be considered erotica---three of the four stories contain sexual content. However, this is just about the mildest erotica I have ever encountered; not very explicit at all. So, if you're looking for hard-core action between Alec and Seregil, you may be disappointed. Still, I thought the scenes depicted were very sweet; I really do like this couple. And the content is certainly more explicit than anything that appears in the novels themselves.

It was also interesting to read the two stories showing Seregil as a much younger man, when he was very insecure and not nearly as polished and self-confident as he was when the series of novels began.

The fan-drawn artwork varies quite a bit in quality, but the best pieces are completely professional, and it's fun to see the different ways readers have imagined these characters.

So, a definite recommendation for those who consider themselves serious fans of the Nightrunner books.

Format: Paperback
I wrote this review a while ago, but I'll post it here, because these short stories offer interesting glimpses into the lives of the main characters:

Glimpses is a short story collection, which die-hard Nightrunner fans will be thrilled to read, because it's full of interesting details about the characters (I'm one of these die-hard fans, because I've liked Lynn Flewelling's books since reading Luck in the Shadows a few years ago). Glimpses is also a good collection for new fans, because it contains stories, which reveal several interesting things about the characters and their lives.

If somebody hasn't read any Nightrunner books yet, here's some information about them:

The Nightrunner series currently consists of five books:
- Luck in the Shadows (1996)
- Stalking Darkness (1997)
- Traitor's Moon (1999)
- Shadows Return (2008)
- The White Road (2010)

There will be at last two more books. The forthcoming sixth book is currently called The Summer Players (2011), but it's a working title, so the title may change before publication.

The main characters are Seregil and Alec. Seregil is a master thief and spy, who's known as the "Rhíminee Cat". Alec is a young man, who becomes friends with Seregil, when Seregil rescues him. They work secretly for Skala and do nightrunning (they steal certain items etc). Their glorious adventures take them to different places and difficult situations.

Nightrunner books are entertaining, macabre and beautifully written fantasy books for adult readers. These books have become famous for the gradually developing homosexual relationship between Seregil and Alec, but there's much more to these books than that.
