The Return of Nightfall by Mickey Zucker Reichert

Legendary thief, lethal assassin, powerful sorcerer…. The elusive man known as Nightfall struggles between his criminal past and his present obligation to protect the King in this epic fantasy duology.

Nightfall makes his triumphant return in a spellbinding new adventure that sweeps readers from the high courts to the darkest dungeons, from piracy and derring-do at sea to sorcerous encounters and cutthroat attacks in enemy territory.

Bound by sorcery and oath to guard and guide Prince Edward on his quest, Nightfall is forced to reveal his true name, Sudian, and to use every trick at his command to keep himself and his idealistic young charge alive. And when Edward suddenly becomes a king, he makes Sudian his advisor. But advisor or not, Sudian cannot dissuade King Edward from a journey to repay a debt of honor to Duke Varsah, an expedition that ends in disaster when all of Edward’s guards are slain and the king himself vanishes without a trace.

Now Sudian must turn to Duke Varsah for aid. But is he putting himself into the clutches of the very man responsible for Edward’s disappearance, a man whose greatest desire is vengeance against Sudian himself?

Excellent sequel. Not much of Edward but plenty of Sudian. Which is good if you love the dagger wielding assasin. Pirates, power hungry nobles and the ever vigilant but also lovable captain of the guards keeps our main character on his toes. You even get to see him in various disguises, which is something you do not get to see in the first book (and when i say disguises i dont just mean playing Frihiat the Farmer, i mean his other more notorious persona). The book isnt called The Return of Nightfall for nothing! :)

Sequels seem like they're never as good as the originals, but this one is. I enjoyed The Return of Nightfall every bit as much as The Legend of Nightfall. If you liked the first, I highly recommend the second.

Mickey Z. Reichert has done it again. I remember about 10 yrs ago how much I loved the first Nightfall book and wondered if this one would be as good (I think I read the other at least 4-5 times since) IT WAS. In fact, I think I liked it a bit better. Nightfall, or Sudian, as he is now known, is more mature and easy with displaying affection towards others. He still is a bit rough around the edges, but what can you expect from a former thief? There are familiar old characters, Kelryn, Ned, Volkmier and delightful new ones as well and the plot moves along with Mickey's typical adventurous style. This book was funny, touching, and fast paced enough to suit any fantasy lover. It took me a night to read and I haven't had a book like that in a long time. The ending was supurb abd the only complaint I have is--when is the next Nightfall book coming out? I hope soon.

Once he was known as Nightfall, a man feared by sane people. Now he is the Lord Chancellor Advisor to the King of Alyndar. To his surprise, Sudian as he is now known, likes King Edward and even regards the monarch as a friend. The King and Nightfall journey to Schiz to meet Burke Varasch so that Edward can make restitution for breaking out of prison after vowing to his jailer that he would reside there until matters involving his daughter were resolved................................. Before they meet with the aristocrat, Nightfall assists a mage in finding out whether a child has a natal talent. When he returns to the inn where he left his monarch, Nightfall finds dead guards and the king missing. Thinking Edward is held hostage for ransom, Nightfall returns to Alyndar where the King¿s Council proclaim him a murdering traitor responsible for the death of King Edward. He is incarcerated, but escapes with the help of Captain Volkmeir, pledging his life to find and free his friend.................................. Nightfall is one of the best antiheroes in years as he is baseborn and spent much of his life as a feared master criminal until he befriended the king and fell in love with Lady Kelryn. They brought about his redemption by seeing beneath the criminal outer layer to the honorable decent soul inside. The terrific action is fast-paced hooking the audience from the start, but the heart of this novel is the characters who keep readers riveted to learn what is happening to each of the significant players as Mickey Zucker Reichert proves she is a first class world-building fantasist.....................................

i loved the 1st nightfall. i really did. but all he (nightfall) did in this one was rant about how wonderful ned is and how he, dryfin, and kelyrn saved him from *gasp* himself. ned had absolutly no personality. there's nothing origional about him. i loved the first one because of NIGHTFALL.
