    • Deserves lots of GIFS Better than the first, in my opinion Maybe it s just because the story is engaging for me this time roundd I ve grown attached to the characters, which, I know, is Though the writing isn t necessarily what I would usually read I find it kind of heavy sometimes , it s well suited for this type of book It s just colossal amounts of fun The world Flewelling has spun is wondrous and enchanting a pleasure to dive into This series is seriously underrated But specifically about [...]

    • This is definitely the most underrated series I ve come across so far The first book is great This one I can t even begin explaining why I loved it so much I spent the last sixty or so pages maybe crying From the start till the very end of this book I ve gone through so many feelings from annoyance through astonishment and speechlessness, deep hatred, despair and gloating to bitter sweet happiness Add any other you can think of in between and you can find it in this story What started in the fi [...]

    • I m of two minds about this book It is good fantasy adventure There is a good pace to the adventure, and while some of the world may have been a bit foggier than other books in this genre, I did enjoy the quests, magic, and intrigueEVER, I was really, really bothered by the romantic relationship between the two main characters It isn t about the homosexual part of it though that did suprise me when I was 16 The problem I had with this was the age and social maturity difference between the coupli [...]

    • Trigger There is some female on male rape in this book although it s not in explicit detail This book is the second in the series and picks up not too long after the ending of the first We see that our characters have grown since the end of book one and settled into routines and life in Rhimanee, but there s still many mysteries to uncover, both about each other and to do with what they found out in book 1 In this instalment I really did connect to the character of Seregil and I think, besides [...]

    • I like the characters, I do They change and develope I also like how Flewelling will revisit things, too, like the death of Alec s father Things aren t just swept under the rug and I appreciate that.I also appreciate how Seregil and Alec s relationship isn t the focus of the story that unfortunately happens too much in romance, especially homoerotica The book is dedicated to the story and in doing so, makes their relationship realistic and believable.The biggest complaint I have is making the v [...]

    • The heartbreaking and thrilling conclusion to the story started in Luck in the Shadows, and whoo boy, does it not disappoint It has a little bit of everything Necromancy, strange rituals to try and bring back evil gods, heartbreak, true love, heroic sacrifices and some good, good kisses Really, it s everything I wanted and so much It gives us the answer to the prophecy that has haunted the story since the first book, and the answer is not excellent In fact it broke my heart Very, very much I fi [...]

    • This review covers the first three books in the Nightrunner series For those who haven t yet read these books, be warned that there are spoilers ahead.Every year I seem to stumble upon a series that seemed innocuous enough on the shelf, and I take that series home, unwittingly committing myself to a week in which all my waking thoughts will be consumed by this new world and its characters Last year, I was lucky enough to happen upon this phenomenon twice, first with Karen Marie Moning s Fever se [...]

    • I can sum this up in essentially the same way I did with Luck They have lots of adventures and kick lots of butt And they also fall in love with each other, but Seregil has a crisis of conscience because Alec is still pretty young, and Alec is just plain confused by what he feels for Seregil, so neither of them say anything Saying any than that would spoil it if you haven t read it, really There s no real social commentary going on with the two main characters falling for each other, unlike with [...]

    • I m guilty of breaking off in the middle of reading and coming back to this one a lot later.It made reading awkward I was no longer into the whole intrigue thing and just waiting for Alec and Seregil to become lovers.Still, I kind of got back into the whole web of intrigue that was happening It s exceedingly well crafted I like that it s not so explicit I can t walk around with this and not be afraid some kid might accidentally read over my shoulder or pick this up.Welp Onto bk 3

    • This is the second installment in the Nightrunner series, and I enjoyed it even than the first Lord Seregil of Rhiminee and his apprentice, Alec of Kerry continue their undercover work, meet a new circle of friends, and get embroiled in a new set of adventures and intrigue The characterization is excellent and the story continues to be riveting A series well worth reading

    • I enjoyed this second part, much better than the first book in the nightrunner series.I believe I was let down by the first book because I wasn t at all drawn in by Seregil s character, he appeared too perfect to me he had fame, money, knowledge, skills, charisma, good looks, loyal friends etc It seemed nothing could go wrong for this character, he was too well set up And poor Alec was continually left behind by Seregil, I always feel resentful when a main character in a book is blinded to the h [...]

    • I just realized I forgot to add a whole bunch of Lynn s books to my shelf WTF This is my favorite Alec Seregil book also the first one I read also the one I read the most Probably a good solid dozen times, if not It has all the right ingredients A noble rogue, an innocent coming of age youth with a hidden streak of a rake, all sorts of sex, an ancient evil with some rather disgusting elements, magic, both good and dark and twisted, proper chase and adventure, warfare that is realistic and cruel [...]

    • It s a long book, as I said The start of it is so different from the middle, and the end, that I can t describe it in earnest without spoiling the living hell out of it What I can say is that while slow paced it was intense, and had the edge of the chair moments by the handful Descriptions are down a notch, so it s easier to read But be aware, it is a mistake to think this is a light goodnight read It s too hard to put it aside for it to be a good bed companion I ll give it a full 5 out of 5 thi [...]

    • Okay, okay, okay Der zweite Band war definitiv anders vom Gef hl her und irgendwie weniger flauschig, daf r aber super spannend Mehr als das letzte Drittel war so aufregend, dass ich kaum aufh ren konnte zu lesen Ich bin immer noch sehr begeistert von allen Charakteren und deren Beziehungen zueinander Es f hlt sich einfach echt an, wie sie reagieren Auch gefiel mir, dass es Kapitel ber Beka und ihre Truppe gab Beka ist gro artig und so stark.Was mich ein wenig erschreckt hat Ich konnte sogar ein [...]

    • I thought that the story of Alec and Seregil couldn t possibly get any better than in the first installment Luck in the Shadows but manStalking Darkness was all that, and ten times stronger.I read the last two hundred pages all at once, unable to put it down, not wanting to do anything else until I finished the book, and at the same time never wanting it to end I already have the third book right here next to me, and I ll waste no time in diving into it view spoiler A little darker than the firs [...]

    • Ok srsly guys, who took my homoerotic devil may care caperfic and replaced it with melodramatic fantasy yaoi D D And I have nothing AGAINST fantasy yaoi melodrama, I am all FOR melodramatic fantasy yaoi but I need mental preparation for the shift from We are snarky lovable rogues who steal things and touch each other in good dirty ways to We are in secret ethereally beautiful, angstily immortal elves with magically prophesied destinies who weep as we kiss in the moonlight, stroking each other s [...]

    • Quasi un anno.Quasi un anno da quando ho recensito il primo volume della serie Nightrunners, trovandolo ben scritto e ripromettendomi di continuare la serie al pi presto.Al pi presto ovviamente si tradotto in dopo , finch in preda alla crisi mistica del cosa leggo Ho solo ottanta libri in TBR mi sono decisa ad iniziare la seconda avventura di Seregil ed Alec.Come ho fatto ad aspettare quasi un anno Come Nel caso aveste dei dubbi, Alec di Kerry mi piaciuto un bel po.Il primo libro era introduttiv [...]

    • Torn between 4.5 and 5 starsNeed to let it sit for a bit I think lol Either way this was an amazing installment that completely surpassed all of my high expectations although maybe a little slow to start I just really love that we finally have a story where the main characters are gay but are not gimmicky, stereotypical, or defined by their sexuality which is often the case This is a relationship that is completely interchangable with any other type out there which is exactly how it should be an [...]

    • I ve said it before and I ll say it again SCREAMS INTO HANDS I LOVED THIS x2 All of the problems that I had with the first book were fixed I m so happy the plot was tighter, the characters world were established, which meant that I spent less time wondering who people were or where in the world they were, and the pacing was so much faster Also the pining in this book left me for dead I am dead right now bless

    • This book continues with all the best parts of Luck in the Shadows Alec, Seregil, Micum, Nysander and everyone continue to be amazing, for the most part.Most of the plot that was built up in the first book but not finished there is resolved in this one As it s all starting to come together, the writing does a fantastic job of building the tension and giving feelings of impending doom without the excessive obviousness or clumsyness of some stories movies Then about two thirds in it takes a sharp [...]

    • WOW I LOVED THIS I found the first half a little slow going but I think that might have been the fault of a gross heatwave I was suffering through as opposed to the book I am so done with how happy drama queen Seregil and blushing confused Alec make me The last chapter surely has to be up there with some of the best last chapters I ve ever read here was my initial reaction cp d from TwitterSeregil s emotions, Alec s helplessness, ALEC TACKLING HIM TO THE GROUND AND SHOWING HIM HOW STUPID HE IS A [...]

    • This review is for the first three volumes of the Nightrunner Series, it does however exclude the following volumes, which in my opinion differ strongly from the first 3.I realise I find it hard to start writing a review for these books The first three volumes of the Nightrunner Series are definately part of my favorite books ever Within the genre of fantasy, they set such high standarts that many other books appear shallow beside them The books are full of great and often innovative plot ideas [...]

    • questo commento vale anche per gli altri libri della serie Ho scelto di commentare questo secondo volume e non come faccio di solito per le serie il primo perch , se dovessi fare una classifica dei tre libri letti, questo quello che ho preferito di pi il pathos crescente che mi ha provocato la relazione nascente di Alec e Seregil meriterebbe gi da solo un saggio lungo quanto la Divina Commedia Mi limiter per a dire che si tratta di una delle pi belle e coerenti storie d a che il genere fantasy c [...]

    • Struggling to finish now that I ve read past the magic rape scene Nary a word is being said in the aftermath, except that our MC feels dirty Okay, so what now Is anybody else going to address it Or is it okay because he did t say no, and he s male, and the woman was hot Oh wait, he did say no, then yes, then I don t know That s when your partner should stop Stoppity stop And if you don t stop, someone should hit you in the face with a brick until you do Friends don t let friends get magicked int [...]

    • I LOVED THIS BOOK I devoured this book This is what storytelling is It s been a while since I had to stay up all night to read a book, sure I might stay up late with some books, but this one I had to stay up until I was finished with this book.What an absolutely wonderful balance between world building, character development and plot It had politics, legends, betrayals, friendship, and grief The tale was riveting, dynamic, and came together seamlessly Absolutely recommend and can t wait to read [...]

    • This is my most favorite fantasy series ever and also my umpteenth re read I adore not just the characters, mainly Seregil and Alec and their love story, but also the world building, the intrigue It s awesome and it s lovely and it s perfect.

    • I read this book in two days straight I think I may have snarled at my boyfriend at one point when he tried to pat my knee I can t really comment on this books quality because I was too immersed in the story to analyse the writing.
