Wounded heroes of a cataclysmic battle, Seregil and Alec have spent the past two years in self-imposed exile, far from their adopted homeland, Skala, and the bitter memories there. But as the war rages on, their time of peace is shattered by a desperate summons from Queen Idrilain, asking them to aid her daughter on a mission to Aurënen, the very land from which Seregil was exiled in his youth.

Here, in this fabled realm of magic and honor, he must at last confront the demons of his dark past, even as Alec discovers an unimagined heritage. And caught between Skala’s desperate need and the ancient intrigues of the Aurënfaie, they soon find themselves snared in a growing web of treachery and betrayal.

Quotes & Awards

  • “What most fantasy aspires to, Traitor’s Moon achieves, with fierce craft, wit, and heart. it is a fantasy feast—richly imagined, gracefully wrought and thrilling to behold. An intoxicating brew of strange and homely, horror and whimsy, lust and blood, intrigue and honor, great battles and greater loves. It is a journey through a world so strange and real you can taste it, with companions so mysterious and memorable you won’t forget it. Lynn Flewelling is a fine teller of tales who delivers all she promises, cuts no corners and leaves us dazzled, moved and hungry for more. Traitor’s Moon is a wonderful book.”

    Patrick O’Leary

  • “While fans of Dungeons and Dragons–style lore will find enough wizardry, necromancy, swords, daggers, and devilishly clever traps here to satisfy the most avid, this book also provides entry to a complete and richly realized world that will please more mainstream circles.”

    Bangor Daily News

  • “An entertaining tale of conspiracy, murder, magic, diplomacy, and an emotion-filled exile’s return.”

    Locus

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dinofly | 2/6/2014

    " I was a little taken aback from the jump the series made. This book is the continuation, but also in totally different scenery then the first two. It was not bad, but it did not hold me so fast as the first two. It felt more like a step into a poetic country from war world (which it was). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Martin | 1/26/2014

    " This was a very nice continuation of the series. It is pretty independent of the previous books, which is nice, but continues plot threads set up in previous books. The well-developed characters and world continue to be lots of fun to read about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madalina | 12/31/2013

    " A little boring, I suppose, but it did bring perspective nonetheless "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merrik | 12/24/2013

    " Basically it was pleasant read - though I must admit, that it disappoints me at some points; Plot is fine, characters are good, though something is missing and I can't actually say what it is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy Schuffert | 12/17/2013

    " OMG! I love this book. I just read it for the 100th time. it's just awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynne | 10/17/2013

    " A continued series that has slipped a bit in interest for me. I continue to read for the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cam | 10/16/2013

    " Excellent trilogy. Except that Lynn denied furiously that this was a trilogy. The next two books proved her right! :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Senkie | 10/16/2013

    " Gyaaa turned out there's a book 4? How come I missed that? *Hunting-mode ON* "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 6/5/2013

    " The premise of this book - good. The execution: not so much, only because the near entirety of the story takes place in Aurenen, with 11 different tribes, all of whom have difficult names to grasp and remember. It doesn't require having the first two books in the series read, but it would help. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 3/2/2013

    " I really want to love these books because I really enjoy the characters. But it takes soooo long for anything to happen I end up doing a lot of skimming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 12/30/2012

    " Perhaps my favorite book in the series so far. Plenty of action, intrigue, etc. Also, it is refreshing reading a story where the central relationship is completely solid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blackbook | 10/18/2012

    " Sword and sorcery, gay theme. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Obote | 5/31/2011

    " I sailed in-the world of imagination all through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blake | 3/5/2011

    " At times a little confusing because of all the different tribes/clans/etc, still a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 C.C. | 1/3/2011

    " I could not put this book down. I stayed up past midnight several nights in a row just to read a little bit more. These characters are fantastic and the world is incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 10/6/2010

    " I love how Lynn Flewelling treats her characters. Everyone is accepted, I wish our world were like that! Finshed this ages ago, but forgot to update it. 8-) "

    " Four and a half stars. Must fit the fourth book in soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elizabeth | 8/2/2010

    " Perhaps my favorite of the five Nightrunner novels. An enthusiastic five stars. This book is different from the others, a slower pace, more intense worldbuilding, and a psychological study all around. I've read it four or five times, and I find unplumbed depths each time. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 7/10/2010

    " Not as compelling as book 2, but mostly enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 3/15/2010

    " Slower paced than the others, in my opinion that made it not quite as good as the others in the series, but still a really enjoyable book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robb | 9/6/2009

    " The writing finally got to me, I couldn't finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lori | 8/18/2009

    " This book would have been a good stopping place for the author, but I'm enjoying myself and so is she. :o) "
