The fourth book in this series set in the Valdemar universe has Mags finding out the hard way a bit more about where he came from. Not the book for someone to jump into the series for the first time since you will miss subplots and only see the final outcome of things that have been cooking for the last several books. An enjoyable read overall. ( )

For the fourth book in a series this is a fine read. Mags is slowly but surely growing up to a fine Herald. As always in a book by Ms Lackey there are heroes and villains and a rich tale filled with surprise.

Mags learns a bit more about his past in a way that is different. Between drugs and kidnappings we find out just that bit more about his back story.

A lot of people dislike back story but to me it is a necessary part of storytelling. In face this series is all about Mags, who he is, who he was and who his parents might have been. We learn more but not enough in this tale. We are left wanting more and it is quite obvious that Ms Lackey has more books planned. Can't wait. ( )

Great book!! It had a slow start but I knew it would eventually pick up, Mercedes Lackey never lets me down. ( )

Better. This one does have a conclusion, of sorts, though still no real answers about Mags - he hasn't yet explored what he's learned. So - some developments at the Collegium, especially with Bear and Lena, and for Amily. Mags learning more from Nikolai. Then yet another batch of mysterious assassins, doing better than the last batch - another, more successful kidnapping. Then Mags gets to exercise a whole new set of skills, and learns more about Karse than was apparently known then - and what he learned actually explains something of how Karse is treated/regarded later, in Talia's time. I hope there's another book still to come - I want to know what the heck Shadao is - but if the story stopped here it wouldn't be totally annoying. The general form is already clear, though there could be lots more good story in it. Better than the last one, which ended on an inconclusive note. Oh, and while I didn't think I found Mags' accent terrible, I was surprisingly relieved when he'd lost most of it in this book. ( )
