The ancient realm of Valdemar remains as usual inundated by hostilities, internal strife, and war. To keep the fragile peace that seems to fall apart repeatedly (twenty five books over the last two decades will do that), courageous Heralds and their loyal intrepid Companions use various skills like mindspeaking, empathy, foretelling, and kinetics. Into the Lackey land, rides thirteen authors (some well known, others with a clear future ahead of them and of course Mercedes Lackey) contributing a tale of a Herald and their Companion struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds.
SUN IN GLORY AND OTHER TALES OF VALDEMAR is clearly intended for two audiences: the Valdermar die-hard supporters and those wanting a taste of what this series is all about. Each tale adheres to the Lackey laws of the realm yet provides each author's personnel stamp on the story. Well written and fun, Valdermarites will especially appreciate the magic of this book.
