Book: Traitor’s Moon (The Nightrunner Series, Book 3)
Author: Lynn Flewelling
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This was another strong addition to Lynn Flewelling’s Nightrunner series. In this book, Seregil and his lifemate Alex must return to Seregil’s homeland, a version of Fae or elven as they are long-lived, closely tied to nature and magic, and highly bound by tradition and honor. Since Seregil’s an exile after a murder he committee there as a youth, that’s tense situation. And Flewelling makes the most of it.
I like that she fully explored not only Seregil’s but Alex’s history as well, while still continuing with the overall plot of defending a virtuous nation from enemies who want to destroy it. There’s a murder to solve as well, and plenty of treachery.
The book moved along swiftly and yet it took the time to provide rich subplots and backstory. I definitely recommend this for fantasy readers.
