Fantastic Addition to the Series
The White Road returns to the feel of Luck in the Shadows, the first book in the Nightrunner series. It still has the dark tinge and bitter aftertaste that colored Shadows Return (the previous installment and book four in the series), but with more of the skulduggery and and outright shenanigans that made the first book so memorable. This is the perfect blend of the both, a series that is maturing as it goes, growing and adding something new to both characters and setting with each page turned.
Ms Flewelling's prose is beautiful, as always. She has a way with words that pulls you through every scintillating description and quirky exchange. There is a real life to her books that makes you care about the characters, no matter how minor. The world is rich and believable, and the cultures that people it are unique. Her two protagonists are endearing and infuriating, all at once, and it is wonderful.
Action, angst, adventure, and betrayal. This series has it all. If you have not, pick up a copy of Luck in the Shadows (and you might as well snag book two and three while you are at it. Trust me.) If you are already familiar with the Nightrunner books, do yourself a favor and pick up The White Road. by April Steenburgh
