This first installment in the Nightrunner series is brimming with magic and intrigue. When young Alec of Kerry is taken prisoner for a crime he didn't commit, he is certain that his life is at an end. But the thing he hadn't counted on was his cellmate. Spy, rogue, thief, and noble, Seregil of Rhiminee is many things--none of them predictable. And when he offers to take on Alec as his apprentice, things may never be the same for either of them. Soon Alec is traveling roads he never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. Before long he and Seregil are embroiled in a sinister plot that runs deeper than either can imagine and that may cost them far more than their lives if they fail. But fortune is as unpredictable as Alec's new mentor, and this time there just might be luck in the shadows.
Abandoned and left on a desolate lawless island by her powerful sea trader father we meet teen Fable as a struggling dredger who survives cut throat life lessons by her wits and hard won mistakes. She boldly gets off the island by way of an enigmatic trading partner who has a mysterious and dangerous past. With the help of a motley crew with trust issues and enemies galore, Fable gains a family willing to take murderous risks, all the while not sure of her own raw emotions. This taut, magnetic and nail-biting adventure tale of swashbucklers on the dangerous seas will leave you breathless and anxiously awaiting the second book in the duology. - reviewed by Maureen
