Publisher's Summary

Mags was a Herald of Valdemar. But he had once lived the brutal life of a child slave. When he was Chosen by his Companion Dallen, his young life was saved, and he slowly adjusted to being well fed, educated, and treasured as a trainee in the Herald's Collegium at Haven. Singled out by the King's Own Herald, Mags would thrive in his secret training as a spy. His unusually strong Gift - an ability to Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were Gifted - made him a perfect undercover agent for the king.
A sequel to Mercedes Lackey's Closer to Home, this adventure continues Mags' journey as Valdemar's herald spy. Cover art by Jody A. Lee.

A good continuation of the series

If you enjoyed the last book you should fine this one to be satisfactory. This isn't action packed, but rather a continuation of Mag's life and explores his role life as a spy master. Amily has an equal and separate part in this story where she deals with politics at home while Mags will go off undercover on an investigation for the crown. I am happy at the pace this series is going and I would like to see a few more of them.

Hard to put Down

The author has woven many disparate threads, each representing it's own story line - and then merges them all masterly together by the conclusion. I marvel at her imagination.

The narrator is fantastic! I have started other books that I subsequently put down because of the of the narration. He uses inflections of voice and accentuation to deftly portray each character's individuality. I don't think anyone could do a better job.
