Publisher Comments:

Life at the Heralds' Collegium in Haven has definitely improved for Mags. He's even become something of a hero since risking his own life to rescue Amily--daughter of Nikolas, the King's Own Herald--from Karsite kidnappers. But Mags still doesn't know who his parents were, and Bear, Mags' Trainee friend, was not one to let him forget: "You gotta deal with your past Mags, you have to. If you don't, it'll just keep coming back to haunt you, and one day it'll do something to you that you can't get out of."

Mags began his special training as Nikolas' undercover partner and future spy for the crown. Disguised, they work at night in one of the seedier parts of Haven, where Nikolas had set up a false identity as a pawnbroker and fence. Mags poses as his deaf-mute nephew, covertly watching and listening from behind the desk. He was especially good at the trait that had kept him alive as a child laborer in the gem mine--ferreting out hidden motives.

Now Mags has graduated to a new role: Nikolas' partner and information broker. Mags channels his old cunning self from the mines and discovers that he's quite good at his new job. So good, in fact, that Nikolas decides to let him open the shop alone one hot, summer night. Mags has barely unlocked the shop when everything goes black in a blinding flash of pain.

He wakes with an agonizing headache, bound, blindfolded, in a conveyance of some kind. But worst of all, he's head-blind. No Mindspeech--he can't even sense Dallen. And if he can't sense or hear Dallen, then no one can sense him. And if no one can sense him, no one can come to his rescue.

Synopsis:

Mags, a young Herald trainee in Haven, the capital city of the kingdom of Valdemar, has talents not commonly found in Herald trainees. Recognizing this, the King's Own Herald decides to train Mags as a spy in order to uncover the secrets of a mysterious new enemy who has taken an interest in Mags himself. Why is the even deeper mystery. The answers can only be found in the most unexpected corners of Mags' past...assuming he can live long enough to find them.

Synopsis:

National best-selling author Mercedes Lackey takes us back to the enchanted land of Valdemar.

It seems as if life is great for Herald Trainee Mags. He has his Companion, Dallen, and his classes, and kirball training is about to start again. His best friends, Bear and Lena, are in love, his special training with Nikolas is going well, and he thinks he just might be in love with Amily. And then everything goes horribly wrong, and Mags finds himself in the custody of kidnappers. By the time he works his way out of his drug-induced fever, he's pretty sure he's somewhere in Karse. Can he escape and somehow make his way back home?

The fourth book in Mercedes Lackey’s Collegium Chronicles, “Redoubt” brings eager readers back to the beloved world of Valdemar. Readers who have read the first three books featuring Mags will be elated at this new volume and the ways in which his saga unfolds, and either frustrated or overjoyed at the fact that his story isn't over yet; as with past volumes, “Redoubt” provides closure for the immediate story but makes it clear more books are to come. An exciting read and a must for Valdemar fans!
