I do love Lackey's Valdemar, and picked up the earlier books eagerly. For me they're the equivalent of bookly comfort food. But I was disappointed in the earlier book centered on Alberich, and I'm afraid this sequel to it is no improvement. It's a common criticism of Lackey that she's very black and white in her worldview and characterizations. That doesn't suit in fleshing out the supposedly intimidating Alberich, who hails from Valdemar's traditional enemy. It also doesn't help with the major plot-line of the book, which deals with the young Queen Selenay's first marriage; Prince Karathanelan practically has stamped on his head: I'm a walking disaster--which makes Selenay rather stupid for ever finding him appealing, especially given how much is made of her struggle not to have herself married off by her council. If you're new to Lackey and her Valdemar, I'd try Arrows of the Queen or Magic's Pawn as an introduction instead--I can't recommend this one to anyone but hard core fans.

Exile's Valor is an amazing follow-up to her novel Exile's Honor. I found continuing Alberich's story in becoming accustomed to his new home of Valdemar both intelligent and inspiring. In his quest to protect his Queen, balance his duties as a Herald master-at-arms, and find time for his own life needs, Alberich becomes just one more endearing Herald to cheer for. I highly recommend this to fans of Mrs. Lackey's Valdemar series. A good read and important time in the history of Valdemar under the rule of a young and vulnerable Queen Selenay.

The second of two books which focus on Alberich. These two are hands down my two favorites in this series, and I have enjoyed many, and read I think all of them. When I met Alberich in the 'Arrows' trilogy, I really wanted to know about him, since he was such a fascinating individual. This and Exile's Honor give us that insight.
