Luck in the Shadows is the first book in Lynn Flewelling 's Nightrunner series. Set in a fictional universe , the novel follows the adventures of a complex thief and his apprentice as they are targeted by magical forces and attempt to unravel a political conspiracy. It is followed by Stalking Darkness , Traitor's Moon , Shadows Return and The White Road . Luck in the Shadows is being made into a movie.

Alec of Kerry, a young hunter who has recently been orphaned, is taken prisoner under the false charge of spying. He ends up sharing a cell with Seregil, a seemingly youthful spy and noble from the exotic city of Rhiminee, who has the ability to assume various guises and trick his way out of tight situations. The two escape together, and Seregil, motivated by something he does not entirely understand, takes Alec on as his apprentice in thieving, spying and trickery. They head south towards Rhiminee, where Seregil will report on his mission to the wizard Nysander, the head of a covert group of spies known as "Watchers."

But along the way, Seregil falls ill under the influence of a mysterious magic. Alec is forced to navigate their way south on his own, testing his limited resources and knowledge of the world outside his rustic homeland. When the cause of Seregil's illness finally becomes known (an ordinary wooden disk imbued with a powerful curse) it is almost too late to save his life. In his unconscious state, Seregil experiences visions of a dark entity known as the "Empty God," foreshadowing the designs of the evil Duke Mardus, who wishes to obtain the god's power for himself.

Interesting character interaction and lively action. The last 20 percent of the book was a little confusing trying to keep track of names and the conclusion was disappointing. Even though, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

I’ve never been too interested in fantasy fiction, but a friend recommended this book to me and now I’m hooked on the whole Nightrunner series. The world is fully realized, with a fast paced plot and rich, believable characters that draw you in to the story immediately. Largely a story of war and espionage in a fantasy setting; there is plenty of intrigue along with elements of mystery and the occasional shock of disturbing violence. A favorite “guilty pleasure.”

Next Grimoire Update!! The language of flowers pages, plant probs, my empath page, element correspondences, charms for idiots, protection amulets for your loved ones, and a good luck spell!

I’ve been meaning to draw Nightrunner  since I started drawing (yeah for a year now), it was one of the first LGBT+ fantasies I’d ever read.

I’m reading once again the Nightrunner book saga and I FREAKING LOVE ITS CHARACTERS AND SOCIETY. I’m in love with the way they accept sexuality and feminine power -there are so many homosexual or bisexual characters and AMAZING female characters!
