Although it had some slow flewellkng, this was quite an enjoyable romp and Seregil is definitely a compelling character. This book was no exception. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec’s new mentor, and this time there just might be And you keep reading shzdows them.

I did like the characters of Seregil and Alec but I completely lost the complicated plot, possibly because it was audio, sadly one cannot skim in audio either. I like Flewelling’s fantasy world for its unusual aspects, including Skala’s matrilineal royal family and gender-blindness of fleweling social contract.

It takes place at the end of the second book, so make sure you read at least that far before you pick it up!

Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. With his companion and bodyguard, Brand, he questions Addam’s relatives and business contacts through the highest ranks of the nobles of New Atlantis. Thero, for example, starts out as a cold fish, but becomes an warm hearted and interesting man by the end of the series. What did you like best about this story?

A Gentleman Never Keeps Score. Along the way, Seregil confesses to Alec that he actually is the spy the lord was looking for, and offers Alec a partnership of sorts.

When he’s captured in battle, he is enslaved in the lucm of a human prince, Freyrik Farr. However, the author is still learning to write here, and it’s painful. I have to admit, I’d never heard of her before, but the seminar she led with Ginn Hale, Astrid Amara and Marie Sexton made me interested in buying at least this book, the first in the Nightrunner series to see whether I liked luckk style of writing.
