Overview

Magpie is a thirteen-year-old orphan chosen by one of the magical Companion horses of Valdemar and taken to the capital city, Haven, to be trained as a Herald. Like all Heralds, Magpie learns that he has a hidden Gift-the Gift of telepathy. But life at the court is not without obstacles. When Mags is "recognized" by foreign secret operatives whose purpose is unknown, Mags himself comes under suspicion. Who are Magpie’s parents-who is he, really? Can Mags also solve the riddle of his parentage and his connection with the mysterious spies-and prove his loyalty-before the king and court banish him as a traitor?

Praise

Praise for the Collegium Chronicles:

“Returning to her beloved Valdemar universe, Lackey opens her new series at a pivotal time in the history of Valdemar, when the education of Heralds is changing and dangers from other lands are felt in the court and on the training field. Series fans will enjoy the variations on a familiar theme, while enough information is presented for first-timers to discover a world of high adventure and individual courage. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

A real page-turner…. Outstanding characters, especially Mags, will greatly please Valdemar fans.” —Booklist

An enjoyable and pleasant read…. Mags is an appealing protagonist facing challenges (and successes) with which readers will empathize.” —RT Book Reviews

“Top Pick! … A wonderful amalgam of fantasy and character study.” —Night Owl Reviews
