Customer Reviews

My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next book in the series to come out.
"sunnykissed"
I found this disappointing since Flewelling had managed to keep the plot moving at a good pace throughout the first two books of the series.

Flewelling is a masterful writer and her world building skills and character development are on a par with the best in Fantasy.

Continuing her well-received Nightrunner Series, Lynn Flewelling's Traitor's Moon picks up two years after the end of Stalking Darkness. Lovers Seregil and Alec have spent the intervening time in a self-imposed exile in the wilderness of Skala, but while they have been far from the intrigues of court life, the bitter war with the Plenimarans has continued unabated. Skala is facing almost certain defeat, and the dying Queen Idrilain sees only one hope for salvation. They must renew their alliance with Aurenen, the mysterious and mystical land to the south.
The Queen is sending her youngest daughter, Princess Klia, along with one of her best military leaders, Beka Cavish, but they need an escort, someone who understands this strange land in which outsiders, or Tirfaie, have not been welcomed for centuries. That's where Seregil comes in. He is an exile of Aurenen, forced to leave as a young man for a crime of which he has never spoken. Idrilain has negotiated his return on very strict conditions, and Beka manages to convince a very reluctant Seregil to accompany them back to his homeland.
Alec, who is part Aurenfaie, is thrilled to be journeying to Aurenen, Seregil is decidedly less so. The land holds many memories for him, both happy and dark. As Alec learns more about their shared heritage, he learns much about his lover's hidden past as well. He needs to learn quickly however, because things are very different in Aurenen, and Klia will need all the help she can get on her diplomatic mission. The Aurenfaie live very long lives, so they see things quite differently. They take longer to make decisions. The problem is Skala doesn't have a lot of time. Things are getting worse on the battlefront daily, and a decision must be reached soon.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Traitor's Moon, the third (and currently the last) book in the Nightrunner series, continues the story of Alec and Seregil (who are now full-fledged homosexual lovers). I read this book with certain expectations set by Lynn's previous two books, and while Traitor's Moon is indeed an intriguing addition to the series, it stumbles in places and I feel it really could have been done better. However, even with all it's flaws it's still on par with Lynn's previous work, it lives up to all the standards of the Nightrunner series; it just doesn't surpass them.
To begin, Lynn's writing seems to have changed a bit since Stalking Darkness. Her writing style has certainly gotten more fluent, but also more vague. It's as if she decided that since she has two books under her belt, she could relax. With characters moving to entirely different areas in the span of a sentence without much due description, it's hard to imagine the characters� surroundings, leaving your mind to fill in the blanks. Exposition abounds. Lynn's notorious habit of having characters stop in the middle of nowhere to give long-winded history lessons is replaced by the narrator stopping in the middle of nowhere to give small history lessons. This doesn't at all interfere with the pace of the book, but it can get distracting.
In Traitor's Moon, Lynn takes us to Aurenen, the sacred homeland of the Aurenfaie race, the land from which Seregil was exiled in his youth. Lynn is introducing an entirely new culture here, and I must commend her for the good job she did with it, even if she did go overboard at times.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I just read all three nightrunner books in less than a week (I had to wait four days to get the second one, so about a day's reading for each) This is the best and first fantasy series (SERIES) that I have come across, and its characters and stories rival some of the greats. Best of all: no cliff hangers.
Traitor's Moon takes Alec and Seregil (don't you just love them?!) to Aurenen, Seregil's homeland from which he was exiled as a youth. They are part of the Skalan delegation, including Klia, Thero, and Beka, that is negotiating for aid in the war.
Love, laughter, politics, frustration, fear, fighting, nightrunning, secrets, and the past weave a powerful spell that glues twelve ounces of paper and ink to your hands till the tale is done. It has the perfect mixture of action and reflection that really gives you a tangible feel of the place and the lovable characters, (some aren't so lovable, but just as real.)
If you haven't read the first two books I highly recommend them. (After all, Lynn had two kids in collage.) They are so much fun and definitely worth it!

Well, this has been an enjoyable past week for me as I finished the 3 books of Nightrunner series. However I did regret buying
them at the end of Traitor's Moon because I have a dreadful feeling that the 4th book may never be written. And this will be a pity because the 3rd book is a solid bridge for more plot and character development. Lot's of loose ends - What exactly is Alec's heritage ? Thero's destiny ? Development of the raging war which threatens to engulf Seregil and Alec as they returned to Skala? Right, Miss Flewelling mentioned in her 3rd book that this is not a trilogy. But she left the series and started another trilogy which is focused on the ancient Skala Queen Tamar, aeon before the world of Nightrunner series. I am disappointed she did that because it meant if she ever returned to a 4th book of Nightrunner it will be published probably in 2005 or 2006. Christ ! I thought the Wheel of Time is the worst!
Traitor's Moon is not as fast moving as the first two but the characters development is more fascinating and engrossing. The characters mature before our eyes. We see Seregil coming to terms with himself which I find touching. Alec as devoted to Seregil as ever. The bond between Seregil and Alec shines and these 2 soul mates have become my favorite characters in fantasy series after Cal and Pell in the "Wraeththu" series. The side characters are also a rewarding read, Thero's potential to be a great and wise wizard, Beka's love for an Aurenfaie. Sigh ! I just wish Miss Flewelling has just adhered to the development of this series.
