First of all, Lynn Flewelling cheats you out of the big SCENE. if you know what I mean

Master spies Seregil and Alec are no strangers to peril. First of all, Lynn Flewelling cheats you out of the big SCENE. if you know what I mean. In fact, she pretty much fast forwards this book so far from the last one that if you are like me and got into this book immediately after the previous book looking for some big THINGS you will also be disappointed. That being said, apparently you can read some of that in a collection of short stories published separately but I have yet to read it.

Lynn Flewelling Traitor's Moon (Nightrunners - 03) Acknowledgments Sincerest thanks to all the folks who continue to keep me sane, fed, and free of crumbs. Believe me, it's a full-time job. First and foremost, my husband and best buddy, Dr. Doug, past whom no chapter goes unmaimed. The sleet-laden wind buffeted Magyana, whipping wet strands free from the wizard's thick white braid as she trudged across the churned ground of the battlefield.

Born in northern Maine, Flewelling is happily transplanted in Redlands, California, with her husband and some very spoiled dogs.

Author: Lynn Flewelling. Seregil and Alec have spent the last two years in self-imposed exile, far from their adopted homeland, Skala, and the bitter memories there. But their time of peace is shattered by a desperate summons from Queen Idrilain, asking them to aid her daughter on a mission to Aurenen, the very land from which Seregil was exiled in his youth.

This book sets a completely different pace than the previous two in this series. For one thing, it takes place, for the most, part in Seregil's home country of Aurenen, and there is a fair amount of political hand-holding, though that is not the only thing the book entails. There is a slight bit of mystery surrounding the death of one background character (was it natural causes or something more sinister) and the injury of another secondary, whom readers will recognise from the previous books.

The backbone of this story isn't in the action, it's in the connection with the characters and in getting a deeper understanding of the intricacies of the Aurenfaie, the different clans and how they value things like honor and truth, and how they interact with one another.

We also learn the true circumstances behind not only Seregil's exile, but through a visit to the Aurenfaiie version of an oracle, Alec's birth, though I suspect there is more to the story of the Hazadrielfaie's exodus from Aurenen than we have learned thus far. Not to mention the the strange prediction telling Alec he would "father a child of no woman". All mysterious things that I think we won't see answers for just yet.

I also I liked Nyal and was pleased to see Beka find someone. Thero grew on me a lot in this book. In the previous two books I didn't *dislike* him exactly, but I wasn't overly fond of him either. We also see more of Klia and Beka's Turma

Still, overall I enjoyed this book quite a lot, just in a different way than the previous two.

After the rapid-fire pace of Stalking Darkness (Nightrunner, Vol. 2), this third Nigthrunner seems almost plodding in comparison. That said, the story is just as rewarding if requiring more patience from the reader. Here our heroes are sent to Seregil's birth country of Aurenen to negotiate the reopening of ports and trade to assist Skala in the war effort. Politics and diplomacy take a lot of time, but are no less deadly than Seregil and Alec's previous adventures. We also find out the details surrounding Seregil's exile, meet his family and his enemies. The first half of the book spends a lot of time on detailed world-building since the long-lived Faie are so different from the humans. Alec has another mission while in Aurenen - to learn more about who his mother is. Though Alec gets an answer of sorts on that front, it is mainly to lay the groundwork for a future story. Most of the resolution is focused on Seregil, and the ending is intricate and conspiracy-laden. If he had to choose between Aurenen and Skala, where would his loyalties lie?

Overall, though I didn't find this as exciting as book 2, I enjoyed it very much. The characters grow from their experiences, I love spending time with them, and the plot was interesting with some surprises here and there. Highly recommended series that leaves me anxious for more.

My favorite of the Nightrunner's series, Traitor's Moon brings intrigue, politics, love, and family all into one book. If you are only willing to try one of the books in this series, then I recommend this one. Traitor's Moon has all the makings of am amazing book, stand alone and series. Flewelling writes complex and captivating characters, new and old. You'll be finished with this book sooner than you want to be. Flewelling really hits it out of the park with this one.

I am enjoying this series on my Kindle, but I would enjoy it WAY more without the many typos! As far as typos go, this is the worst Kindle book I've ever read. They are awful! Many words that are supposed to have 'th' have 'm' instead ('man' instead of 'than', etc.). It took me a while to figure out why there were Haitians (Haman is the name of one of the clans in the story) in a fantasy novel. Also, 'viceregent' is misspelled 'vicegerent' all through the book. Character names are filled with constant typos, too. 'Alec' is often 'A lee' and 'Ilar' (Iliar? I really can't tell) is 'liar' almost throughout. I don't expect a book to be perfect, but this was just awful. Please, whoever edited this needs to retire their spellchecker! I am hoping that I shouldn't expect such sloppy editing from Kindle editions.

This action packed trilogy concludes with Seregil and Alec accompanying Princess Klia to the fae homeland to negotiate a treaty. Seregil has to confront the reasons for his original exile and solve both a murder and an attempted murder in addition to the intrigue and politics. This is a top of the line series with magic, strategy, politics, action, and a cast of characters that are distinctive who you will truly care about. The world building is excellent and will pull you in. I will be reading the second trilogy and anything else written by this very exciting author.

With the third book of the series Ms Flewelling shows us that even an accomplished writer's inspiration may fall short.

To create a world, a whole culture, is always a terrifying task: it took ages to Tolkien to create one and somehow he failed; Ms Flewelling is t not as good as Tolkien and yet she tries, in this third episode, to create a second world in the same series.
The Aurenen are neither believable nor lovable, they come forth as an unmeshable mixture of millenarian wisdom and unexplainable barbarity.
Ms Flewelling has tried to avoid the elf commonplaces only to be punished by having created a world so frigid no one would ever care to go back to, least of all someone as clever, witty, unconventional as our hero.

This third episode being based exclusively on this homecoming a failure is the result: it is often boring, nothing of what takes place makes any sense.
And still...
Characters are always finely depicted; even the previously unsufferable Beka becomes nearly likeable. The love story of Seregil and Alec is now established, lacking therefore the thrill of the first two books, but it is outlined with lovely subtlety.

Ms Flewelling has made a wrong choice but it takes a very good writer to write a good book despite such a flawed background. It is worthwhile to read it and not only because of the previous good instalments.
