Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Marlyn Roberts
Owlsight is vintage Mercedes Lackey-to some that is not a good thing, but to Lackey fans it is a very good thing. Lackey's husband is credited as co-author on this volume, but its tone seems no different from her other work. This title is the second in yet another Valdemar trilogy, which does not have a collective name. One can certainly read and comprehend this second book without having read the first, but some background in Valdemarian history is a must. The protagonists of the story are Keisha and Darian; readers may remember Darian from the previous book in the trilogy, Owlflight (DAW, 1997/VOYA December 1997). In this installment Keisha, a fledgling Healer, feels overwhelmed because she is not properly trained and does not think she can leave her village without a Healer while she goes away to study. Darian, from the same village of Errold's Grove, has been adopted by a clan of Hawkbrothers. When they discover the possibility that a tribe of barbarians might attack Errold's Grove, Darian and his Hawkbrothers go to the village's aid, coincidentally taking along teachers for Keisha. Of course a romance between Darian and Keisha is almost to be expected, but only the first glimmerings appear in this book. Presumably the relationship will mature in the next installment, Owlknight. If teen readers are not already Lackey fans, they should start with either The Last Herald-Mage trilogy or The Heralds of Valdemar trilogy. Once they are hooked, they will beg you for the rest.

    A Light, Enjoyable Read

    This is the second book in the Owl Mage series, that began with Owlflight, so you should read that first. I generally like Lackey's Valdemar books, and if you're new to them I'd start with "Arrows of the Queen." They almost all deal with Heralds, a police/military force bonded to and partnered with "companions," magical creatures in horse guise. Heralds don't factor much in this particular trilogy though, but the Tayledras, featured in other stories, do, and for me that more than makes up for that. The previous book centered on Darian, a Valdemarian adopted into a Tayledras clan who wishes to be a bridge to both peoples. This book introduces Keisha Alder, a young healer-in-training from his village. I found her an appealing character and the book a light, enjoyable read, even if I wouldn't name it among Lackey's best.

    Keisha's Beginning

    Once again Larry Dixon adds to Mercedes what she lacked in her other books. The plot slows a bit in the middle but I still enjoyed the read.

    This book is one of the best books Mercedes Lackey has written. Everytime she writes she goes above and beyond what she has done last time. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

    I thought it was great!

    The book will just draw you right in. She gives such vivid explainations about the places you can see them with your minds eye. k'Vala Vale is so detailed that I almost could see the people walking around and climbing to thier houses. This book is a must for anyone who loves to use thier imagination.
