SHADOWS RETURN is the fourth installment of Lynn Flewelling's Nightrunner series. After finishing the first three books almost nine years ago now, she has returned with a new exciting book about our two favorite nightrunners; Seregil í Rhiminee and Alec of Kerry.

Like her other books, SHADOWS RETURN starts with a small interlude to allow the readers to learn more about the two main characters, obviously meant to refreshen everybody's memories about the previous adventures of our two heroes. But even those chapters are exciting in their own way and wonderfully written.

The book quickly takes up pace when both Seregil and Alec are sent back to Aurenen by Queen Phoria to retrieve Klia. On their way towards her, they're ambushed and seperated as Zengati slavers take them along on a trip which is more hair-raising than the both of them could possibly imagine as shadows from Seregil's past start to come back and Alec learns more about his heritage and the rhui'auros' mysterious prophecy.

Shadows Return is definitely more horrifying and grotesque in it's own way than the previous books, but also far more impressive as Flewelling grows on in writing. Though nine years are between the release of TRAITOR'S MOON and SHADOWS RETURN, Flewelling has managed to get into the skins of her characters once more and write another fantastic story.

I'm sure that the next book in the series will be even better!
