Changes which is the last book in the Colegium Chronicles Trilogy, was a good read. Lackey definitely brought that special Valdemar touch into this story as well, although it is not as good as some of her previous Valdemar works such as the Last Herald mage or Mage Storms trilogies. The author stil leaves a few unanswered questions at the conclusion of this trilogy, but the plot line is good, and we begin to watch Mags complete the transformation from Mine slave orphan to Heraldic trainee and a future herald of Valdemar. Nick podehl does a truly excellent job as the narrator. His portrayal of the characters, and the ease with which he manages the various idioms of language, makes the book all the more entertaining. If you're a Valdemar fan, you should certainly get this. It is well wirth the credit.
I absolotely love this book. It's one of my favourites and it's also a great intro to Pern. This was the first Anne Mccaffrey book I ever read and I've been hooked ever since.
I'm sorry, but this story doesn't seem to do Pern or the dragonriders any justice. As has already been stated in some of the other reviews, most of the dragonrider rules regarding time travel have been broken. The book just goes on and on with nothing really noteworthy happening. It was a struggle to get through it. I only finished it because I love Anne Mccaffrey's pern books so much. Tod's earlier pern books were not bad, but this one is just boring.
