“A shrill whistle caught Darian’s attention, and he looked up and over the lake of k’Valdemar Vale, shading his eyes with his hand.”Owlknight by Mercedes Lackey
I love, love, love this book! I’m obsessed with the entire Valdemar saga… a long line of standalones, duologies, etc. It’s high fantasy that brings you into a fantastical world inhabited by rich and diverse characters with engrossing storylines.
If you love or are interested in high fantasy, this author is AMAZING!
