Finding the Way and Other Tales of Valdemar by Mercedes Lackey

In this collection of short stories, Mercedes Lackey and
15 other authors have added on to the Heralds of Valdemar
series with tales about the Heralds, Bards, and Healers of
Valdemar. Follow along as they take you through the land
of Valdemar and learn about the powers of the Heralds,
Bards, and Healers, the Elite forces of Valdemar.

Learn about a healer-to-be who feels a terrible danger
before it is reported&

The life of a Man after he was changed and the child he
found in the forest&

The adventures of a young Herald-to-be and the mistakes
she makes&

And so much more as Mercedes Lackey and others take you
through the magical land of Valdemar.

Larry Dixon, Elisabeth Waters, Tanya Huff, Mercedes Lackey
and others in 15 new stories tell you the little things
that happen in the background of the novels by Mercedes
Lackey.

This book was effective at getting me to continue
reading, and the vocabulary wasn t too0 difficult, so I
think just about anyone could read this book. In
comparison to other books I have read by this author, this
book does well and could easily be added to her Heralds of
Valdemar series.

One of the things I liked about this book is how the
characters and the setting together can make you feel as
if you are in the book, and in some parts, if I try hard
enough, I can imagine the scene in my head. Sadly, I was
left wondering what happens to some of the characters, and
some of the stories seemed to end a little too soon.

The weakness of this book is the shortness of the stories,
which makes you hope that the stories will be picked up
later. The strength of this book is the diversity. The
book doesn t follow the same plot or design each time,
leaving you wondering what twists will be added next.

I found this book interesting, and hope Mercedes Lackey
continues to work with these authors. I would recommend
this book to anyone who likes to read about magic and
adventure.
