Publisher's Summary

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 the thing he hadn't counted on 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.

An Absolute Tragedy.

What would have made Luck in the Shadows better?

Another Narrator. Victor Bevine, Nick Podehl, Kevin Stillwell or Andrew Wincott perhaps.

What did you like best about this story?

I just couldn't stand to listen for long enough to get to know what the story was about, so I don't know.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was reading about someone being tortured in a sing-song voice, as though he was reading Noddy in Toy Town.I could have cried. I have looked forward to listening to these books for a long time. I managed to get hold of the Tamir Trilogy, by Lynn Flewelling, on Audio CD and it was brilliant, but then it was narrated by Victor Bevine, who is awesome.

What character would you cut from Luck in the Shadows?

Not A clue. In the short time I could stand to listen, there were only three characters, and I didn't find out enough about them to make any judgment.

Any additional comments?

I am utterly heartsick. This is yet another series of books destroyed by a terrible narrator. I will read the printed version and I'm sure I'll enjoy them, as Lynn Flewelling is one of my favorite authors.

Not a complete story

Although it had some slow patches, this was quite an enjoyable romp and Seregil is definitely a compelling character. Under normal circumstances I'd have given it four stars. However, what spoiled it a bit for me was that nothing really got resolved at the end. It's part of a series, but it doesn't stand alone as a complete story in it's own right. If you want to know the answers to the major questions you're going to have to get the rest of the series. And I didn't enjoy it *that* much that I'm dashing to read the rest. So, all in all, it was a bit let-down at the end.
