With their most treacherous mission yet behind them, heroes Seregil and Alec resume their double life as dissolute nobles and master spies. But in a world of rivals and charmers, fate has a different plan....
After their victory in Aurenen, Alec and Seregil have returned home to Rhiminee. But with most of their allies dead or exiled, it is difficult for them to settle in. Hoping for diversion, they accept an assignment that will take them back to Seregil's homeland. En route, however, they are ambushed and separated, and both are sold into slavery. Clinging to life, Seregil is sustained only by the hope that Alec is alive.
But it is not Alec's life his strange master wants--it is his blood. For his unique lineage is capable of producing a rare treasure, but only through a harrowing process that will test him body and soul and unwittingly entangle him and Seregil in the realm of alchemists and madmen--and an enigmatic creature that may hold their very destiny in its inhuman hands.... But will it prove to be savior or monster?

About the Author

Lynn Fleweling was born in Presque Isle, Maine, which--contrary to common assumption--is not an island. She received her undergraduate from the University of Maine at Presque Isle, where she majored in English, minored in History, and received a teaching certificate she had no intention of ever using. Since then, she has studied literature, veterinary medicine, ancient Greek among other things, and worked as a necropsy technician, a house painter, an office worker, a freelance editor, a freelance journalist (www.sff.net/people/Lynn.Flewelling/OtherWritings.html), and yes, even as a teacher now and then, an instructor of workshops--on creativity and fiction writing.

An exciting new book from Lynn Flewelling - Shadows return lives up to the storyline of the other 3 books and picks up straight after Traitor's Moon's ending. I love how Flewelling moves the action along and doesn't mince words and waste pages, but gets to the point of the story. In this book I enjoyed Seregil and Alec's relationship being tested from 2 different aspects to the 3 previous books, the development of Thero's character and more is learnt about Phoria and Korathan. I can't wait for Book 5, The White Road.

This author signed a deal with her publisher to write 2 books in 2 years. So the first thing you will notice with this one(if you have read the previous 3 nightrunner books) is that the font is bigger, and it is shorter. It also seems to move faster, and I guess a little has been sacrificed in detail, and ambience, in order to fit everything in.
All that aside this long awaited sequel CANNOT fail to please fans of Alec and Seregil as they manage to get themselves in yet another seemingly inescapable fix. This time it's ambushed, and sold into slavery. We also get to meet someone previously only talked about in 'Traitors Moon' who will do his best to sabotage the relationship between our boys.
Have you been wondering about that prophecy the Oracle gave Alec ? The one that said he would '...father a child of no woman.' ? Kind of Shakespearian wouldn't you say? Reminds me of the scottish play where we find that:'McDuff was from his mothers womb untimely ripped'. Well this is weirder than that.
