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?

Great story !!

I have read most of Mercedes Lackey's Valdmar series and this is the best one yet. I can't wait to read what happen next.

I like seeing how Mags grows throughout the two series, from the mine slave to the upstanding man he is in the book today,

Nick did awesome job telling the story. He really makes you feel like you are right there. I have recently had a lot of narrator changes in the series that I have listened to please don't change this one.

Great transition for this series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book picks up on the Collegium Chronicles, and is able to move them forward. The kids/students are now fully vested in their roles in life. I am surprised how smoothly this process went. The book is enjoyable and I am just waiting for the next book to come out.
