The Nightrunners are back in this gripping novel full of Lynn Flewelling’s trademark action, intrigue, and richly imagined characters. More than the dissolute noblemen they appear to be, Alec and Seregil are skillful spies, dedicated to serving queen and country. But when they stumble across evidence of a plot pitting Queen Phoria against Princess Klia, the two Nightrunners will find their loyalties torn as never before. Even at the best of times, the royal court at Rhíminee is a serpents’ nest of intrigue, but with the war against Plenimar going badly, treason simmers just below the surface.And that’s not all that poses a threat: A mysterious plague is spreading through the crowded streets of the city, striking young and old alike. Now, as panic mounts and the body count rises, hidden secrets emerge. And as Seregil and Alec are about to learn, conspiracies and plagues have one thing in common: The cure can be as deadly as the disease.

That said, I didn't find it quite as easy to connect with the characters as I have in all the others. The usual glimpses of Alec and Seregil's relationship were glossed over much more than usua...
I think it's time to admit to myself that I'm never going to finish this one. I don't care. I want to care, but I don't. Also, conservatives need to get over the gay marriage thing, because homosexual domestic bliss is just as boring as heterosexual domestic bliss. Actual deviants would have more fu...
This book is what the Nightrunner series is about! Burgling nobles' houses, royal intrigues, new mysterious magic to deal with. Usually I don't care much for battlefield scenes and was really tempted to skip 'em in previous books. That was changed this time around. Fights were engaging, not over com...
