If you've never read Lackey or her Valdemar books, this wouldn't be the place I'd start. The first published is the Heralds of Valdemar trilogy beginning with Arrows of the Queen, and the first chronologically, and in my opinion her best, is the Last Herald's Mage series beginning with Magic's Pawn. Chronologically, this book is set between those two trilogies, and fleshes out a mention of Lavan Firestorm in the first trilogy. The book starts out in a way typical for Lackey's books, with a young man misunderstood by his family who finds his destiny when he's "chosen" by a companion (magical creature shaped like a horse) and thus enters the ranks of the Heralds. If you've read others of those Valdemar books and love them, you'll probably enjoy Brightly Burning, which certainly is eminently readable, well-paced, and as imaginative as any, but this book and the character of Lavan just didn't for me have the pull and ability to move me the way Talia and Vanyel of her first two sets of books set in Valdemar.

Another flaming success of Mercedes Lackey and one I recommend for young adults who find themselves in bad situations as a comfort and triumph.

I really enjoyed this book about a young man that must learn to control that which he fears to save his friends and his people. I especially like how this is a stand alone book. it is part of the bigger series but can be enjoyed without the usual 3 book trilogy Lackey is fond of.

This is a well written book that I have read several times. It pulls you in so you can feel the raw emotion of the characters.

In the world of Valdemar, a young boy is the black sheep of his family, he can't relate to them, so he gets sent to school where strange things start happening and his power takes control. But that isn't the big surprise. The he is chosen, and his world turns upside down. He has a strange, rare, and powerful gift that can change Valdemar's future for the better, but at a great cost. He is a firestarter, but one so powerful he becomes infamous before he becomes loved. With a past that now haunts him, and new friends that support him, Lavan has a long way to go, but not long enough.

This book was another great Mercedes Lackey classic of the valdemar series. It will make you laugh, cry and jump for joy. The end was heartwrenching, but overall, it was a really sweet story. It is a suprizing change from the usual M.L. books.

An excellent book with lots of character development. Lan is well-drawn and his Companion too. I loved Pol and would like to read more about him and his family.
