"A new star is rising in the fantasy firmament...teems with magic and spine-chilling amounts of skullduggery."–Dave Duncan, author of The Great Game

When young Alec of Kerry is taken prisoner for a crime he didn’t commit, he is certain that his life is at an end. But one thing he never expected was his cellmate. Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things–none of them predictable. And when he offers to take on Alec as his apprentice, things may never be the same for either of them. Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine, and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec’s new mentor, and this time there just might be…Luck in the Shadows.

From the Paperback edition.

Luck in the Shadows

One part adventure, one part fantasy, one part incredible magic and part political intrigue. Add to that affection slowly growing into love with everyone but the involved characters noticing and it makes for a great story. The best and worst feature is that 3 story arcs make of this novel something of a never-ending story. A very good one. I can't wait to read part two.

I really enjoyed this book. I hope that there is a little more intimacy between the two major characters in future books. I also would like to know more of the history of all of the characters. All in all though a fun romp and the kind of world where you look up and realize that you have been completely immersed for awhile. What more could you ask for.
