I can't remember when I first read these books - and I don't think I ever finished the series. They use a fair number of fantasy tropes - set in vaguely medieval fantasy world, young Alec is rescued from a prison cell by the dashing Seregil, who is a thief, spy, elf (well, basically - he's an Aurenfaie), and takes Alec off to teach him all his skills and work for Nysander, a wizard. But Luck in the Shadows uses all those tropes really well - it's a fantastic adventure story, the relationships between the characters are great, and behind the basic "teaching the apprentice" story is a much larger and dreadful dark menace (and necromancers!). And Flewelling's world is also quite sex-positive, which is a nice change from your usual generic medieval fantasy world.
