Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is an age when Valdemar is yet unfounded, its organization of Heralds yet unformed, and magic is still a wild and uncontrolled force.

Skandranon Rashkae is perhaps the finest specimen of his race, with gleaming ebony feathers, majestic wingspan, keen magesight and sharp intelligence. Courageous, bold, and crafty, Skan is everything a gryphon should be. He is the fulfillment of everything that the Mage of Silence, the human sorcerer called Urtho, intended to achieve when he created these magical beings to be his champions, the defenders of his realm--a verdant plain long coveted by the evil mage Maar.

Now Maar is once again advancing on Urtho's Keep, this time with a huge force spearheaded by magical constructs of his own--cruel birds of prey ready to perform any evil their creator may demand of them. And when one of Urtho's Seers wakes from a horrifying vision in which she sees a devastating magical weapon being placed in the hands of Maar's common soldiers, Skandrannon is sent to spy across enemy lines, cloaked in the protective of Urtho's powerful Spell of Silence.

Synopsis:

Here is Mercedes Lackey's dynamic new fantasy, set in the prehistory era of her fabled Valdemar. Skandranon is perhaps the finest specimen of the gryphon race, with gleaming ebony feathers, majestic wingspan, keen magesight, and sharp intelligence. When an invading force threatens his realm, he is sent to spy across enemy lines.

Dear gods! I love Mercedes Lackey! I whorship her marvelous skill at writing!This ties into the history of Velgarth (the world where her Valdemar books take place) along with a later trilogy. READ IT!

PS- Though if you're just starting with her read the Arrows of the Queen trilogy first!
