Good stories - none wonderful, but none I really disliked. Again, most of these were sequels to stories from the previous book(s). A lot of them set after the Mage Storms, with people (Valdemarans and Hawkbrothers, among others) dealing with the sudden change in magic. And several of the rest set during or just after the Tedrel Wars. There's a lot of history in Valdemar, and a lot of stories to be told... ( )

This collection had no real stand-outs. There weren't any stories the were really good, nor were there any stories that really didn't fit in Valdemar. ( )

Sometimes these anthologies work for me, sometimes they don't. On balance this collection was better than some I've read -- less dialect, and a variety of eras, which was nice. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0756409020, Mass Market Paperback)

In March 1987, Mercedes Lackey, a young author from Oklahoma, published her first novel, Arrows of the Queen. No one could have envisioned that this modest book about a magical land called Valdemar would be the beginning of a fantasy masterwork series that would span decades and include more than two dozen titles.

Now the voices of other authors add their own special touches to the ancient land where Heralds “Chosen” from all walks of life by magical horse-like Companions patrol their ancient kingdom, dispensing justice, facing adversaries, and protecting their monarch and country from whatever threatens. Trained rigorously by the Herald’s Collegium, these special protectors each have extraordinary Gifts: Mindspeaking, FarSeeing, FarSpeaking, Empathy, Firestarting and ForeSeeing, and are bonded for life with their mysterious Companions. Travel with these astounding adventurers in these original stories.
