Publisher's Summary

Mags was once an enslaved orphan living a harsh life in the mines, until the King's Own Herald discovered his talent and trained him as a spy. Now a Herald in his own right, at the newly established Heralds' Collegium, Mags has found a supportive family, including his Companion Dallen.
Although normally a Herald in his first year of Whites would be sent off on circuit, Mags is needed close to home for his abilities as a spy and his powerful Mindspeech gift. There is a secret, treacherous plot within the royal court to destroy the Heralds. The situation becomes dire after the life of Mags' mentor, King's Own Nikolas, is imperiled. His daughter, Amily, is chosen as the new King's Own, a complicated and dangerous job that is made more so by this perilous time. Can Mags and Amily save the court, the Heralds, and the Collegium itself?

No depth

I have loved Mercedes Lackey books since I first picked up the Last Herald Mage series over 25 years ago. This book is a shadow of those early books. The characters have no depth and the storyline is entirely predictable. Such a shame.

So nice to go back.

It was like re visiting a favourite place going back to Valedemar. The characters are so real, you feel you know them and I love the concept of the mind communication with the Companions. Most go and get the next book right now!!!
