Publisher's Summary

Mags was a Herald of Valdemar. But he had once lived the brutal life of a child slave. When he was Chosen by his Companion Dallen, his young life was saved, and he slowly adjusted to being well fed, educated, and treasured as a trainee in the Herald's Collegium at Haven. Singled out by the King's Own Herald, Mags would thrive in his secret training as a spy. His unusually strong Gift - an ability to Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were Gifted - made him a perfect undercover agent for the king.

A sequel to Mercedes Lackey's Closer to Home, this adventure continues Mags' journey as Valdemar's herald spy. Cover art by Jody A. Lee.

    Story
    "A good continuation of the series"

    If you enjoyed the last book you should fine this one to be satisfactory. This isn't action packed, but rather a continuation of Mag's life and explores his role life as a spy master. Amily has an equal and separate part in this story where she deals with politics at home while Mags will go off undercover on an investigation for the crown. I am happy at the pace this series is going and I would like to see a few more of them.

    Story
    "Mercedes Lackeys Herald series has turned"

    becoming a bit more realistic problems but retains it's sense of Heraldic Glory, the desire to work to better the whole instead of the individual. the interplay between characters are much more realistic and character growth retains it's symmytry. not so much a story of a girl with a pony but a group dynamic. her writing is still much the same excellence it always had.
