Luck in the Shadows is the first book of the Nightrunner series, which has become one of my favourite fantasy series. It's one of those series which grow on you. This book is a real gem among other fantasy books. It's entertaining, funny, sinister and original. The story moves fast forward and the reader will gradually find out more about the characters and the world where they live. The main characters are interesting and the reader will soon notice that there are certain secrets which will be revealed later (some of the secrets will be revealed in later books). I won't say anything about the story or the happenings, but I'll say this: the story is very entertaining and well written. Luck in the Shadows is one of those books, which will charm you when you read it. I can highly recommend this book to all fantasy fans, who like good stories, because Lynn Flewelling is a good writer.
