Publisher Description

This first installment in the Nightrunner series is brimming with magic and intrigue.

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 the thing he hadn’t counted on 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.

  • “Part high fantasy and part political intrigue, Luck in the Shadows makes a nice change from the usual ruck of contemporary sword-and-sorcery. I especially enjoyed Lynn Flewelling’s obvious affection for her characters. And at unexpected moments she reveals a well-honed gift for the macabre.”

    - Stephen R. Donaldson, New York Times bestselling author
  • “Memorable characters, an enthralling plot, and a truly daunting evil. The magic is refreshingly difficult, mysterious, and unpredictable. Lynn Flewelling has eschewed the easy shortcuts of clichéd minor characters and cookie-cutter backdrops to present a unique world people by characters who are truly of that world. I commend this one to your attention.”

    - Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author
  • “A new star is rising in the fantasy firmament…Teems with magic and spine-chilling amounts of skullduggery.”

    - Dave Duncan, author of The Great Game
  • “A splendid read, filled with magic, mystery, adventure, and taut suspense. Lynn Flewelling, bravo! Nicely done.”

    - Dennis L. McKiernan, author of The Dragonstone
  • “An engrossing and entertaining debut novel. It opens up a new fantasy world that is ripe for exploration—full of magic, intrigues, and fascinating characters…the kind of book you settle down with when you want a long, satisfying read.”

    - Michael A. Stackpole, author of Eyes of Silver

    " An old favourite. I've read Luck in the Shadows so many times, I don't even know what I can say about it any more. I love these characters, and all the more so for knowing what's in store for them. "

    " I whole heartedly loved this book, I fell in love with the characters. I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but I found it hard to look at the cover of this book... "

    " Awesome series I found by accident looking through the library for a new series. Glad I found this author. The White Road was quite weak and for most of it I would have sworn someone else wrote it. Won't stop me from ordering the next one, if she writes one. "
