My Review Although I love the Valdemar saga, one of my favorite series that I go back to over and over again, I have to admit that this this installment of the Collegium Chronicles is my least favorite thus far.  I still love Mags, as well his friends Lena and Bear, but this particular book […]

My Review I am a huge Mercedes Lackey fan and the entire Valdemar series is one of my all-time favorites to binge on every few years.  I love the story lines, the mystery, the intrigue, the characters.  I pick up one of these books and I am transported to a totally different world and I love […]

My Review While I have loved this series, I think that this one is my least favorite of the three.  I love Vanyel’s character as much as ever, even with all of his stubbornness.  For me it was Stefan’s character, as well as bits of his back story, that just didn’t do it for me. […]

My Review One of my favorite parts of the Valdemar epic saga are the Collegium so I love that there is now an entire series based on them!  Foundation is the first in a (so far) five book series set in the Collegium.  While Mags is the center of the series from the Herald Collegium, the […]

My Review This book takes up long after the end of Magic’s Pawn and Vanyel is exhuasted by the wild magic and trauma that he has been through.  He is almost an entirely different person in this book, changed and matured with the experiences of his past.  As much as I loved the first book, I think […]

My Review I love all of the series and singles that make up the entire Valdemar saga, and this one has always been one of my favorites.  Vanyel is a character that I think, in some way, is a universal character that we can all identify with in one way or another. Vanyel Ashkevron is […]

My Review The Silver Gryphon is the last book in the Mage Wars trilogy, the first in the epic Valdemar saga.  The first book in the series was pure high fantasy, the second less magic and more intrigue, and this one is a tale of survival.  It also contains one of my favorite quotes from any […]

My Review The White Gryphon picks up several years after the end of The Black Gryphon.  The war is over and the everyone has fled to different parts of the world.  Skan, Drake, Winterhart, and Zaneel have escaped together, along with many others of Urtho’s former realm.  They have made their way south through treachorous land […]

My Review The entire Valdemar series is a favorite of mine and one that I have reread repeatedly over the years.  The series unfolds in the form of trilogies, duologies, singles, etc., and this series, Mage Wars, is the start of it all. The Black Gryphon takes place long before the Valdemar kingdom is founded, a […]
