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

3.0 Luck in the Shadows
There is a lot to be said for a fantasy that has an m-m cast. There isn't many around (or more likely I haven't read many), and it was refreshingly lacking the typical hero cliché that usually accompanies such novels, and that would be a young girl at the cusp of adulthood with the classic first kis...

the story moves a bit slowly, but the worldbuilding as well as the writing is pretty good, so overall, it's an enjoyable read

1.5 Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling
1.5 stars, where half star is for the nice cover art. It's not even the lack of m/m romance, it's the lack of adventure and consistency, the fact that the opening line of the story is dropped and forgotten by 30%, the fact that prose takes on purplish tint through the middle for no reason at all t...
