“Full of intrigue and plots upon plots.”—RT Book Reviews
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The story was good. Solid magical mystery, good world building, really great secondary character development. After seven books, Alec and Seregil are well developed. It was awesome seeing them together, just like a normal couple, dealing with the situation. No time spent on second guessing their relationship. And neither one was captured or lost, causing the other to search for him for most of the book. Which is a good plot, but we’ve seen it a lot in this series.
Instead the secondary characters got good development. Good pacing, good use of multiple POVs to tell the tale. Good use of aspects of previous tales to build the story. Just wish I had another novel to preorder.
Generally, the interaction between Alex and Seregil lacked a humorous warmth. But, than
again, the relationship has been ongoing for awhile. The first half of the book had a slower pace.
I wasn't as absorbed in the subject.
Don't get me wrong. Flewelling still has the flair of story telling with the intrigue , impossible odds,
mysteries and endearing characters. Admittedly, I have read all the other books in this series. I don't
regret reading this work. It's just that the charm wasn't there for me . Perhaps, it was it a bit too dry in
certain parts. Nevertheless, the author sill comes across with a vivid imagination.
I also loved how the mystery at the beginning of the tale is so strange that no one can explain what's happening. Various supernatural (vs magical) possibilities loom and create a nice air of creepy mystery. As the plot progresses and the mystery begins to unravel, perfectly valid reasons for much of the mystery are found, but never spoil the plot. Nicely handled.
Definitely a recommended read. Though you can read it as a stand-alone, you'll enjoy it much more if you've read at least a couple of the earlier Nightrunner books because of the added character development and depth that "history" will give you.
Long live the queen's Nightrunners!
