Publisher's Summary

It has been 10 years since the magical Cataclysm which destroyed the twin strongholds of the two world's most powerful Mages, killing Urtho, creator of the gryphons, and sending his forces into exile. Now Urthro's peoples - human and non-human alike - live in a terraced city carved into the face of a gleaming white cliff on the edge of the Western Ocean. Secure...at least until the fleet of the mysterious Black Kings appears in their harbor, bringing envoys who inform the residents of White Gryphon that their newfound home lies on the northern perimeter of lands claimed by this powerful kingdom. Desperate not to lose their hard-won home, Skandranon, along with his longtime friend Amberdrake agree to accompany the envoys back to the Court of the Black Kings, hoping to negotiate an alliance. 

When a high ranking noble who opposes this alliance is found murdered, Skandranon and Amberdrake realize that they are up against unknown enemies who will stop at nothing, even the use of diabolical Blood Magic, to destroy White Gryphon.

The Black Gryphon, the White Gryphon and the Silver Gryphon are chronologically the first in this series. They cover the Mage Wars and explain the world before Valdemar.

Skandranan continues

Skandranan and Amberdrake meet a new challenge facing their city, White Gryphon. The intrigue is great and they have a very different court to navigate. A wonderful narrator.

Classic series

I read this series about 20 years ago and fell in love with it then as well as all of the books related to the Black Gryphon. I find Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon to be incredibly imaginative in their writings. The characters and storylines are so well developed that you feel a part of the story. I have all of her books in hardcopy and have found it so enjoyable to be able to listen to them now. I highly recommend the series as well as the other books related to this story.

Already a Lackey fan - Love re-living these tales!

I have read this books many time so I was very excited that they finally came to audio book! Gary Furlong is a great choice for these books as he brings a bit of 'attitude' to the voices and actually sounds weary when the characters are. I know it is minor thing but I love that about this.
