Product Description

Amazon Review

Orphaned when his trapper parents failed to come back from the forest one day, young Darian is resentful when apprenticed to the damaged magician Justyn. He sees little point in the few tricks he manages to learn, and what has magic done for Justyn save leave him under-employed, sick and despised in a remote village? Then half-human invaders take the town and Justyn dies heroically helping people escape while Darian looks on in horror. Lost in the forest, Darian is rescued and recruited by the mysterious corps of Hawkbrothers... This is both a decent account of a difficult and disturbed boy coming to terms with his past and his future and a glance at new aspects of the world of the Heralds of Valdemar Mercedes Lackey has created in her other fantasy novels. Too often epic fantasy neglects the consequences of magical warfare for the peasants on the ground--the villagers' bad treatment of Darian and Justyn is a result of the necessary shattering of magic in earlier books, and Justyn is a brain-damaged veteran of those wars:
"But, like a lover scorned, his magic has left him as well. Much of what he had learned, the blow to the head had driven from his memory; he had trouble seeing mage-energies with any reliability, and the mind-magic he had was so seriously weakened he could no longer lift anything larger than a needle for more than a few moments".
This is a chastening and perceptive book about growing up and coming to realise that the people around you have reasons for being wrong. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book lets us grow up with Darien we see him now as a teenager. We also know where his abilities lie and we also meet a great new character in keisha and her sister the herald trainee. I throughly enjoyed this book and cannot wait for the next installment in the series

Format: Paperback
this was miles better than Owlflight. the story was paced better and everything linked.
The detail with which ML described Keisha's day to day life was so in depth you could imagine yourself beside her as tended sick people and animals, feel her frustration with her family and her awe when she saw the Hawkbrothers. Darien has also grown up, he is now much more mature, and confident about himself.
There is also the reappearance of Firesong and Silverfox, so we get to find out how Firesing has coped since his accident.
We also breifly reaqquaint ourselves breifly with Kerowyn and Eldan as well as the companions.
It was rivrting and i have read the book from cover to cover 3 times and i still want to read it again.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Rita Whinfield on 6 Sept. 2005
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the second book in a new trilogy, Owlflight being the first,this is Valdemar from a different angle, the Hawkbrothers one. Mercedes Lackey draws you in from the first page and leaves you hoping that the next book is published (there's nothing worse than having to wait a year or more for the next instalment). I love the Valdemar books and found the Hawkbrothers slightly mysterious in the previous books, this one expands on the relationships with their 'bondbirds', and about how they live, work and protect the forests they live in great, great, great more please. Darian (our hero) is endearing a 'typical boy' and is a bit irritating at first, but stay with him, he's worth it. Full of the usual adventure and magic this trilogy will not disappoint (the heralds are here too). Darians journey into adulthood and magehood was great, but I found the ending a little rushed.My only question is when will there be some more Valdemar books.

Format: Paperback
The sequel to owlflight, it picks up a few years later with Darian preparing to return to Errolds grove. A good read, with the usual great characterisations and interesting people (plus the welcome return of a couple of favourites - I won't say who since it might ruin the story for you!). I felt that the end was a bit hurried. It seemed rather tacked on, although I can't wait to find out what happens next.

I'm not sure what the other reviews are talking about. I found this novel highly enjoyable, and Darian and Keisha are great, well-rounded, interesting characters. They both struggle with their gifts and personal lives and provide for an interesting and enjoyable book. It is well written with lovely detail, and is coloured by characters from other Valdemar series - such as Healing Adept Firesong. I thoroughly enjoyed it, this series is one of my favourite Valdemar ones.

Kept me reading, in fact I bought the three books in the series, and I don't regret the purchases. Some editorial errors, some swear words that were not necessary, but all in all entertaining and an easy read for a bedtime book, taken with a mug of hot milk before sleep.

This book is a good continuation from Owlflight. Like the previous book I feel I get to follow the main characters as they develope. The storyline is easy to follow. This is also a great book to read while relaxing or travelling.
