yes. I like the story and the narration is nicely done with no bothersome quirks.
There are several but the moment Mags finds Dalen, the moment he meets Lena and then Bear, All are written well and not overdone.
No. This narrator did a nice job.
The sequence of word images moving Mags forward toward finding his place within the Collegium and within himself are too many to just isolate one. The best is probably comes with the Winter celebration.
Good book which I would think most people would enjoy. No sex, and limited violence. The supernatural nature of the Companions is not so overt as to offend.
There was nothing wrong with this book at all - the performance was fine and the production was good - but this particular book was just a bit too coming of age/young for me personally.
All new characters, set in the time of King Kiril of Valdemar; quite a while before the Arrows of the Queen happenings. Talks about the building of all three collegiums, the new classroom base for training Heralds. Great character and world building with wonderful characters from all three collegia and a continuing story of how Mags, an orphan, becomes a trainee Herald.
Very good voice and character narration and quite entertraining.
I am thrilled there's a new set of stories in the Valdemar series. Can't wait till the next installment.
This book is as good as all 22 or so other books Mercedes Lackey has written in this world. The fact that Audible is starting to carry more books by her, from several of her series, is the reason that I am considering coming back to a monthly subscription. I am very excited to see the other elemental master books in the list as well. This book is very well read, very well written and I would suggest any Valdemar trilogy to Any one, with the 500 kingdoms and elemental masters collections following right behind.
I agree with other reviewers: save this one for the kiddies. The beginning is aright, the middle is an epic snooze-fest, and the end has a nice twist that just fell short of making me thankful I read this.
