"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 didnt 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 Alecs new mentor, and this time there just might be…Luck in the Shadows.

Synopsis:

A showman, spy, thief--Seregil gathers intelligence information for the Queen about the threat of war by Plenimar. During one of his missions, he discovers an orphan lad and takes him on as an apprentice. When a mission goes awry, leaving Seregil in a coma, it falls to Alec to get his mentor to safety in order to avert a sinister plot of epic proportios.

Honestly, I found this book by accident, when I was looking for something interesting to readon my friend's bookshelf. I choose this book out of curiousity, and was lost in the first pages. Lynn Flewelling writes almost perfectly. I couldn't stop reading untill the end. I don't remember being so taken by the book for a long time already. The plot, characters, the world - everything was so wonderful, that I couldn't stop from reading the whole series.
And I shall say, that one of the protagonist of this book (and the whoke series) - Seregil - immediatly became one of my favorite characters ever)
