Customer Reviews

My only complaint is that I have to wait for the next book in the series to come out.
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 admit that I first picked up this series because I knew there was a love story, and I can't resist a fantasy novel with a good love story. The first book, Luck in the Shadows, was good, filled with a story that took me by surprise, and had me buying the second book almost before I'd finished the first. Stalking Darkness was another hidden gem, and at the end, I thought nothing could beat the wonderful, touching story that filled it. Still, I wanted to continue on with the characters' stories, so I picked up Traitor's Moon.
I was a bit wary of the book; I've heard of it being the lesser of Ms. Flewelling's works. But just a few chapters in, I knew it was the best.
Yes, the story is mostly political intrigue, but that line has been building since the first chapter of the first book. Yes, Ms. Flewelling's writing style has changed, but, I think it has made a turn for the better. Her prose takes on an almost poetic tone as Alec and Seregil venture into the heart of Aurenen. My favorite line? 'Like the moon, I'll hang close to you through the night, reflecting your brilliance by virtue of my own dark surface.' Who can resist someone who writes as beautifully as that? The scenes she describes are equally as breathtaking, and most of them are just enchanting. I find myself smiling as I read through her descriptions of Sarikali, Akhendi, and all the other delightful places her creative imagination has come up with. The exchanges between her characters are as passionate and full of life as ever, if not more.
As our beloved character continue on their journey, a new language begins to develop, and things might become a bit more confusing.
