5.0 out of 5 stars If you like witty, fast-paced fantasy, you'll love this book, 16 Feb 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Luck in the Shadows (Nightrunner) (Mass Market Paperback)
I really liked this charming book. It had a great mix of
humor and emotion, and the characters were very easy to
like.
The book is about a sly, charming thief and spy, Seregil, who picks up
an apprentice when he is captured and they meet in a dungeon.
His companion, Alec,a modest, backward lad of fifteen, has an
aptitude for theivery and sleight of hand, so they become
partners. They work for the Queen, gathering information
about the approaching war with their age old enemy, Plenimar.
They also learn about themselves, especially Alec, as they
traipse about the country, robbing and carousing. However,
they are not simply roguish theives, their mission is much
more important. When a magical artifact strikes Seregil and
he falls into a coma, the responsibility of getting him to
his teacher and friend, the wizrd Nysander, falls to Alec.
In this, he proves himself, and through many other challenges
they must face in the future.
This was an amusing book, filled with wonderful jokes and
hilarious situations. The characters were lovable and real,
brought to life by the talented Lynn Flewelling. I recommend
this to all who love to laugh and live on the edge.
