Publisher's Summary

The wild magic is taking its toll on the land, and even Vanyel, the most powerful Herald-Mage to ever walk the world, is almost at the end of his strength. But when his Companion, Yfandes, receives a call for help from neighboring Lineas, both Herald-Mage and Companion are drawn into a holocaust of dark magic that could be the end of them both.

Better than Book 1

What did you like best about Magic's Promise? What did you like least?

I liked that the characters had more depth in Book Two when compared to Book One.<br/><br/>I least liked all of the "ly" words. They greatly distracted me and took away from the story. You will see this same statement in the reviews for the other two books.

If you’ve listened to books by Mercedes Lackey before, how does this one compare?

Better than Magic's Pawn

What does Gregory St. John bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing really.

Do you think Magic's Promise needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It has one.

Any additional comments?

Again, the homosexuality seems to be placed as an afterthought. It is never fully developed. It seemed the author was trying for an epic romance and it just sort of fell short.

A great listen! Don't pass it up!

Would you consider the audio edition of Magic's Promise to be better than the print version?

Yes

Have you listened to any of Gregory St. John’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't heard him before but now I'll look for his other audiobooks for sure!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I couldn't stop listening!
