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
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
That said, Black Gryphon is one of my favourite fantasy novels, leaving me giggling or crying every time I re-read it. I love throwing slightly altered quotes into conversation such as Skandranon's "A tidy living place is a sure sign of a diseased mind". This book is an incredibly good read, and is very bitter-sweet. The only thing I can complain about is there is no history or description for the big villain, Ma'ar, before he became the villian. He is two-dimensional, in a world of colourful, very much three-dimensional characters.
