Awesome Back Story Filler

First, I am writing this review for both Exile’s Honor and Exile’s Valor, since I think of them as a set. Second, I disagree with Audible’s decision to list the two books as books 4 and 5 in the Heralds of Valdemar series, as these two stories actually pre-date the story in the ‘Arrows of the Queen’ story both chronologically and by actual publish date. ‘Arrows of the Queen’ was the first Valdemar book, the other two were written years later.
Having said all that , I lived these two books. They filled in a number of the ‘back stories’ referred to in ‘Arrows of the Queen’, among other Valdemar books and gave much greater ‘life’ to some significant secondary characters from other books.
Now, if only Audible could get around to publishing ‘By The Sword’, another one of those ‘bridge’ books between other Valdemar series, one which I believe may be the best Valdemar book ever written.

good story...

the story was good, the audio quality was top notch, but was not happy with inconsistencies in pronunciations that changed line to line and was not consistent with the rest of the books in the series.

A wonderful series addition

This is one of my favorite series of books. This addition is well fleshed out and fills in some of the gaps historically even if was somewhat predictable plot wise. As always I will be looking forward to the next book in this series.
