It feels like a lot of things were taken from Don Quixote for this work. It has many unique elements and is a lot of fun to read though.

I picked this one up in a used bookstore because the cover art was pretty. I thought 'Oh, this is going to be another one of those roguish-character-forced-into-a-hero-position books'. And yeah, that's more or less what it is. But Reichert does it so freaking WELL! Nightfall, master of disguise, accomplishes his 'legendary' feats in 'mostly' non-magical ways that left me impressed instead of groaning. He's witty without going overboard, and he's not TOO perfect. Yes, Prince Edward is idealistic and annoying, but he's just so dumb and kind-hearted that I couldn't help but like him. Reichert has a real talent for characterization. I really did like all the 'good guys', and the 'bad guys' were well-written enough to hold my attention. Reichert draws you in and makes you interested in everyone and everything. This immediately went to the top of my list of books that all fantasy enthusiasts must own. I found it an excellent read.

wow this book was great. Nightfall was so awesome. edward was annoying, but nightfall's commentary on his stupidity was hilarious.

This book was a wonderful twist to magic. Sometimes fantasy writers copy other authors, Reichert adds some new twists to magic. Couldn't wait to finish the book; have now turned it over to my 13 year old who the language is appropriate.

An assassin finds himself stuck with a idealistic young prince, on pain of losing his soal! He has to not only put up with the prig and keep from killing him, he has to keep him alive and get him land, which he is totally uninterested. Add a lady who did/didn't betray Nightfall and a sorcerer and you get a GREAT book!
