I'm generally a fan of Lackey's Valdemar books. This one starts in a way very common to her, as we follow a young man, Darian, who is orphaned and alienated from all around him. One thing that makes this one different from the usual Valdemar books though, is this particular young man isn't destined to become a Herald. Instead we get to learn more about the mysterious Tayledras featured in other books. I don't know that I'd start here if I were new to Lackey or her Valdemar books--you'd do better, I think, picking up "Arrows of the Queen," the first published in the series. But this story, not having characters in common with the other books is independent enough you wouldn't need to read the other books, and though I think others among those books are better, this is still an engaging and entertaining read.

    Got me hooked

    This book got me hooked on Mercedes Lackey's books. It was about a boy named Darian, an orphan raised by his village. Set in a fictional place called Valdemar, Darian is confronted with life without his parents, learning to deal with the villagers he detests, and barbarians that attack his village. He meets the mysterious Hawkbrothers, and tries to prove to everybody he is not the worthless screw-up they think him to be. Lackey did a very good job of seeing the story from many people's points of view, and their reactions to different situations. I enjoyed that her characters were like real people, flaws and all, and weren't perfect. I would recommend this book to any fan of fantasy, as well as people who want to see what the genre is about.

    A great book!

    I enjoyed this book greatly. The deep characters, accompanied by the rich surroundings that they live in create a vast world. Along with the captivating action is fun humor that will cause you to laugh out loud. I took a chance when I bought this book and I was immediately sold after the first chapter. Now I have the dilemma of finding money to buy the other books that Mercedes and Larry have written. I immediately went out and bought OWLSIGHT after finishing this book. I can't wait till OWLKNIGHT comes in paperback, [what can I say, I'm cheap!} This is truly a great book.

    Darian's Beginning

    I liked the characters, the plot and the progress. Larry Dixon adds to Mercedes what she was missing all along.
