Shadows Return by Lynn Flewelling
But it is not Alec’s life his strange master wants—it is his blood. For his unique lineage is capable of producing a rare treasure, but only through a harrowing process that will test him body and soul and unwittingly entangle him and Seregil in the realm of alchemists and madmen—and an enigmatic creature that may hold their very destiny in its inhuman hands…. But will it prove to be savior or monster?
I’ve enjoyed all the previous books in the series. This one wasn’t as good. It had a feeling of a filler book. Though the characters and writing was very good they didn’t grow much in the story. The story itself was a little boring compared to the others. The action and adventure of the previous books aren’t as overwhelming in this one. This one seemed to be about advancing the overall series plot line and introducing another character.
I did enjoy the story and if you are into the series it is one not to miss but it doesn’t read as well as the previous books. I will be reading the next!
