This story continues the mystery behind Mags' past and his developing relationship with Amily. It is a good read but not worthy of five stars. The problem starts about halfway though when, abruptly the story jumps from Haven to the mines. Two paragraphs into the chapter and you realise you've read all this before. Several chapters have been lifted almost verbatim from the first book in the series, Foundation with only a few sentences here and there to reassure you that there wasn't some huge mistake on behalf of the publishers. Eventually an explantion arrives in the revelation that Mags has been taken captive and is being drugged. This part drags on and the rescue, when it finaaly arrives, is rushed and supremely unstatisfying. The story ends in a rush and the last part of the final chapter is out of place with the frantic pace of the escape from Karse. I found myself paging back and forth to make sure I hadn't somehow missed a chapter. I would have liked to have seen more of the rescuing forces on the Valdemarar side, Mags' reaction to being safe and home and definitely a longer and more in dept reunion with Dallen. They've been apart for weeks and don't even say "I've missed you"!

Here's hoping that the next book picks up where this one left of and addresses some of these problems. Lackey is a great author but she dropped the ball with this one.

Redoubt was a big let down, hardly any story and large parts of Book One rehashed for the first time ever I was bored reading a Mercedes Lackey novel, the whole thing was a complete waste of money and the author appears to have forgotten at least one of the Firecats abilities heavily featured in the Storm trilogy which would have been very useful in this novel although it would have made the tiny bit of story even tinier had the ability been used. It would seem we are now being forced to buy book Five if we ever want to discover the end of Mags story, the author should stick to trilogies as she appears to run out of steam after three books.

The first third on this book contains the last chapter of the previous book and an overlong and detailed description of a Kirball match...neither of which add anything to the plot. When the plot development begins it is interspersed with extensive 'flashbacks' to earlier events - pages of cut and paste!! What is left is, effectively, a short story - and at £6.39 an expensive one at that!!

I have read reviews of other Mercedes Lackey 'books' which have alerted me to the fact that 'the book' is less than 20 pages long (and at over £1 is not good value!)! This sort of activity does nothing for the author's reputation nor for promoting the Kindle. I won't risk buying Mercedes Lackey's work again!!

This isn't the most exiting book of Mercedes Lackey but it follows the story through reasonably well and isn't a bad read at all though it is diverging a bit at time. Some comments reflect on the fact it revisits the time at the mines and claim it is a repeat and been lifted from the first book...it isn't... and gives a different perspective of Mags time at the mines though it would have been nice to actually have Mags attacked and rendered unconscious as part of the story before you find yourself in the middle of his drug induced dreams. As to comments that it would have been nice to have Dallen and Mags have a lovey dovey meeting as they've been apart for a while.....at the time of the meeting they're fleeing for their lives which is hardly the right place to be mooning over each other and slapping each other on the back. The author does seem to be dragging it out a bit and making us wait for the next book....I hope it will be the final one in this series and she can get back to some trilogies as this one is drawn out a bit and not quite her usual style...but its about Valdemar and the Heralds and that in itself is an interesting enough concept. Don't be put off....but don't expect anything too wildly wonderful either. A decent fairly solid continuation of an interesting concept and introduces a few interesting people....another Firecat to start with who actually gets round to explaining the differences in the Red and Black robes which isn't satisfactorily explained in the books written about later times though published earlier.

Having read the other reviews I wasn't expecting much from this book so got a very pleasant surprise. There was a lot less of the Hero feeling sorry for himself and the overall story moved along quite well. I read books 2,3 and 4 in quick succession so can do a reasonable comparison. I was certainly left wanting more. I wonder how long before the next book comes out?

I love this series! It's one of those where you simply can't put the books down, and even though the storyline is a bit "cropped" at times it's still one of my new favourites.

This book is an excellent conclusion to exceptionally addictive series.

The characters, plots and sub plots have you in it's grip from start to finish. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

Can't wait to read more Mercedes Lackey!!!!!!!!!
