9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By "Seregil of Rhiminee" on 21 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
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.

There are several different kind of elements in these books: political intrigue, mysteries, war, magic, friendship and love.

I bought this ages ago for a the friend who gave me the first two nightrunner books years ago, I was going to take a sneak peek at it before giving it to her, but she was up the day it arrived and I never got a chance to look through it. Thinking it way to thin a volume to pay out a small fortune for myself.
How foolish I was.
And as a fan of Lynn Flewelling's work, I really should have known better.
So...
I would say this is for ALL Nightrunner fans. It rounds out some of the character backgrounds to a fine finish that were never covered in the books.
And `The Bond' is a direct carry on from our favourite bit at the end of Stalking Darkness' when Alec and Seregil finally get it together! (tbh it almost feel like it was edited form the original book, and we finally get to have the bit we most wanted to see ^_~ I'm sure you can guess what that bit is!)
I devoured this book in one sitting like a really good cream cake and tea! And in that, always leaves you gasping for more!
VERY worth the price it is for any Nightrunner fan, and a good stop gape until `Casket of Souls' is released in 2012.
PS: in the book it mentions the 6th Nightrunner book as being called `The Summer Players' and mention it as a `working title', it was, the book is now called `Casket of Souls', go check it out ^_^

By Johan on 20 Jan. 2012
Format: Paperback
To begin with, let me say that I'm a big fan of the Nightrunner series, and to a lesser degree of the Tamir Triad as well.

I went into reading this collection of (very) short stories expecting some interesting background for the Nightrunner characters, but what i mostly got was erotic fan fiction, by the author herself. Now, i don't mind some pretty graphic sex (straight or gay) in regular books as long as it's somewhat related to the story, but on it's own like this it's a bit thin.

This "book" simply feels too much like an extremely short Harlequin sex novel than as something that expands on the Nightrunners. I didn't feel it advanced the characters at all, and believe the author can write a lot better than this.

TLDR; Mostly gay sex, not enough adventure.

This collection of shorts let's us see some Glimpses of some of the scenes left out of the main Nightrunner novels is a NECESSITY for anyone who read and love the original books. The only think holding it back from getting that last star is that if you haven't read the main books then theses stories mean little. As a massive fan, however, I am not complaining as I am finally able to see all the scenes left out from the main book. I've read this little volume several times already and plan on reading it several times more. Looking forward to the new novels coming out soon AND the promised second Glimpses.
