my review

As with the others in this series of anthologies, the short stories in this collection are set within the Valdemar world. While there is a story by Mercedes Lackey, the rest are by other authors, many of who are seen in several of the other anthologies. The stories are short and episodic, but still have that familiar feel with the characters and places found within the main series’ books. New characters and old, these stories are a fun addition to the world!
