Format: Paperback
You'll love the black gryphon. Brave, honest, sarcastic and often arrogant, a master of the smart answer, here is a character to revel in, even if he does sometimes fly in with his tailfeathers on fire. A cast of vivid characters set against the background of war and trying to survive despite the odds. I just wish I'd met him earlier in his life. Read it. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Format: Paperback
I bought 'The Black Gryphon' simply because I enjoyed another book Mercedes Lackey wrote with my favorite author, Anne McCaffery. There is no doubt in my mind that this incredible, touching, fast-paced novel is as good as (if not better than) any of Anne's fine work. The realistic characters are set in a complex, original, almost tangible world. It is impossible to avoid falling in love with the characters. I feel that The Black Gryphon is an incredible story, a brilliant combination of action and romance, fantasy and realism (with some politics thrown in for good measure.) During the final chapters I found it impossible to put down, despite the fact that it was 2am ! The climactic ending was well-chosen and wonderfully described. Mercedes Lackey is to be congradulated on a terrific novel.

A very well-written book based on a good versus bad storyline. Pre- Harry Potter it has all the sensitivity excitement and thrills of that series along with a very decent storyline. I have read Mercedes Lackey before and found her books suitable for my teenager to read and both of them (15 & 18 years old) enjoyed them. Both have passed on this book to their friends to read and are waiting for me to hand over the next book (I never knew teenagers could look so much like vultures). That said I also really enjoyed this book and am eager to start on the sequel "The White Gryphon". Science fantasy at its best.

The Black Gryphon is a great book to read. It will have you worrying and crying with the characters as they deal with a war of magic proportions.
You get a look at life within the world Mercedes Lackey creates that carries through to all the rest of the valdamar series and leaves you guessing at what is going to be revealed next.
A great book and well worth buying

I read this book previously, and thoroughly enjoyed it, I am now pleased to have it in hardback.

I have read many Mercedes Lackey books she gives great enjoyment with her storytelling please don't describe these books as for early teens I am 73 years old and certainly not in my second childhood
