Staff Picks

The Nightrunner series has quickly become my new favorite fantasy series.  Flewelling has created a full and interesting fantasy world that brings freshness to many classic tropes of the genre.  Luck in the Shadows shines when it comes to characters.  Flewelling knows how to let a character grow naturally and come to life in her stories.  Any lover of high fantasy age 16 and up should make this a part of their collection. - Pete
