I have been a huge fan of the Nigthrunner series since I found it many years ago. This is the last (seventh) book in the series according to the author. I’m really sad to see it end, but can understand that if she is out of stories for these characters, best to end on a good note. She has said short stories are probable, which is good. And it was nice to see nothing “final” happened to them, there is always the possibility for more.
The story was good. Solid magical mystery, good world building, really great secondary character development. After seven books, Alec and Seregil are well developed. It was awesome seeing them together, just like a normal couple, dealing with the situation. No time spent on second guessing their relationship. And neither one was captured or lost, causing the other to search for him for most of the book. Which is a good plot, but we’ve seen it a lot in this series.
Instead the secondary characters got good development. Good pacing, good use of multiple POVs to tell the tale. Good use of aspects of previous tales to build the story. Just wish I had another novel to preorder.
