Thero, for example, starts out as a cold fish, but becomes an warm hearted and interesting man by the end of the series. Scoundrel by nature and master thief by trade, Mouse is the best there is.

Aug 28, Abigail Hilton rated it liked it. There are plenty of sweet moments in between running around in the middle of shdows night and schmoozing with nobles. I just couldn’t stand to listen for long enough to get to know what the story was about, so I don’t luckk.

With this book I did.

Luck In The Shadows : Lynn Flewelling :

Too much setting description for me. The Heart of the Lost Star. Alec is, in other words, the perfect mate for a man of Seregil’s spying trade, semi-noble birth, and insatiable intellectual curiosity. flewellung

Soon Alec is traveling roads tye never knew existed, toward a war he never suspected was brewing. See all 10 questions about Luck in the Shadows….

Seregil starts out relying on no one but himself, but he learns to accept Alec as an equal and trust him. Alec is from a place with a less tolerant society, but in the bigger cities and more free-thinking regions you can be who you are.


I will not be warned against what I look for in the first place. The last thing half-dragon, half-fairy private investigator Twig Starfig wants to do is retrieve a stolen enchanted horn from a treacherous fae, but there’s no denying the dazzlingly gorgeous unicorn who asks Twig to do just that.
