the blurb

An original short fiction anthology set in Mercedes Lackey's bestselling world of Valdemar-featuring heroic Heralds and their horselike companions-and including an all-new novella by Lackey herself, as well as stories by masters such as Mickey Zucker Reichert, Judith Tarr, Tanya Huff, and others.


my review

This collection of short stories is a wonderful addition to the Valdemar world. These are not all by the original creator of the world, Mercedes Lackey, but by a variety of authors. Some include characters from the books, while others are other new characters that fit seamlessly into the world. And many of the stories are part of a mini series that is threaded through other books within the Tales of Valdemar series.
