Casket of Souls(Nightrunner, #6)
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 — a plague that may well be magical in nature. 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.
One of the books which I was waiting the most, really. And the one which almost made me screem in excitement when I finally managed to read it.
Lynn is doing a great job, as always. Once I started readin Casket of Souls - I couldn't stop until I finished it.
Our old friends - Seregil and Alec - are doing more of all those wonderful nightrunning, working mostly on Thero, who's the Head of Watchers now.
The situation in Rhíminee is tough again. The war with Plenimar doesn't make things easier too.
On the other hand, Lynn did a great job on concentrating on character's relationships in this book too. We finally manage to learn more about princess Elani.
To put it shortly - this book ended up to be really great. Wonder now, how I'll live till the 7th - and last - Nightrunner book.
