This book filled in a gap in my Lackey collection, I've been enjoying reading other authors playing in her world, as some of her recent stories have left me feeling like she rushed them out. Loved seeing a new Tarma and Kethry story, and it's awesome to read stories about bards and guards and regular people, filling in the gaps in the world formed because Lackey concentrated on the Heralds.

I'm always a little leary of shared-world sorts of anthologies, especially when they deal with places I'm particularly fond of, but I really enjoyed this one. The writing was a bit dodgy in places in the first story, and the two military stories didn't do much for me, but I got a kick out of all the others. I think my favourites were "Horse of Air," "A Change of Heart," and "Song For Two Voices." I especially liked how the stories dealt with a wide variety of concerns; there's more here than just Heralds, though of course they're well represented. It was nice to see some more stories set elsewhere than Valdemar, too, and to see some that dealt with less visible groups like the Holderkin.

A good collection of various stories about Valdemar. I do like how she printed stories by others about Valdemar in the book. It gives different perspectives into the world.

I think that it is a well written book. The stories are engaging and fun when they need to be, but also a thriller when needed. I give this book a great rating.
