Luck in the Shadows Book 1 of the Nightrunner Series

Myr

154 views

This week I want to bring up the Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling.  All of her books seem to touch on one LBGTQ issue or another.  Nightrunner though stars the adorable, naive Alec. 
From Amazon:

Quote

When young Alec of Kerry is taken prisoner for a crime he didn’t commit, he is certain that his life is at an end. But one thing he never expected was his cellmate. Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things–none of them predictable. And when he offers to take on Alec as his apprentice, things may never be the same for either of them. Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine, and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec’s new mentor, and this time there just might be…Luck in the Shadows.

 

I really enjoyed this book.  It is a slow burn on the Alec thing.  This is a pretty long series and I don't think I've even read the last two yet.  I think the first one is my favorite though.  If you like fantasy stories, this is absolutely one that is worth checking out.

This was my favorite book in the series too. I'm halfway through Book 4, The White Road, now. I also recommend Luck In The Shadows!

I've read all of the series and Seregil and Alec are a great duo to read about. The world is rich with it's own mythology, backstory, intrigues and breathes with the best of mythical universes. Completely worth your time to read if you like fantasy with believable gay characters, not just thrust in there to take over the story.

As a person who had read nearly the entire series, I HIGHLY recommend the first three in this series (Luck in the Shadows, Stalking Darkness, and Traitor's Moon).  After that it gets...weird.

I'll definitely give the first three a go, then.

I'm loving this Book Bazar, Myr. Even if the books I have to go read take me away from my writing.
