Talia could scarcely believe that she had finally earned the rank of full Herald.

For now Talia must ride forth to patrol the kingdom of Valdemar, dispending Herald's justice throughout the land.

Talia has become a full Herald but has one more hurdle to overcome. She needs to spend eighteen months riding circuit in Valdemar to learn more about her role as a Herald. Kris is her mentor and guide and has had his image of her poisoned by his uncle Lord Othallen. Talia has a unique mind Gift; she has a very strong gift for empathy and the ability to manipulate other people's emotions.

She is also dealing with falling shields. Her gift came upon her early and was strange. No one was quite sure how to help her get a handle on it. The Heralds passed her on to the Healers who have similar gifts. Unfortunately, each group thought the other had taught Talia the basics of controlling a mind Gift. Now the stress of dealing with Kris's distrust and the rumors that indicate she's misusing her Gift have set her into a downward spiral to depression and maybe even suicide.

Besides dealing with a plague and an epic snowstorm, she and Kris have to find a way to build the foundations she never had and help her get control of her Gift.

This was an excellent middle book in a trilogy because it focused on Talia's Gift and her gaining control of it and understanding about it. It is a coming of age tale with real growth for Talia during the course of the book. ( )

This book continues the story of Talia as she serves her year of apprenticeship with the heralds.

It’s nice to see her step away from politics and have to deal with actually being on the road and putting her training into practice. It was also fun to get to know another character who was only briefly mentioned in the first book. I did find this book to be a bit dull, however. A lot of time is spent on how Talia is having trouble with her powers and the endless feedback loop of her being unsure of herself and worrying about what people are thinking about her, and what that might do to the princess. While it provided some great time to develop more characters, I’m not sure this really needed to be a full novel to accomplish what it did.

With that said, I’m sure it’s nothing more than the middle book slump that sometimes happens in trilogies, so I’m not put off by the series as a whole. I’m excited to read the third book so the story straightens itself out and contains more substantial conflict. I see why the development was important to the story, I just wish it could have been done with a more exciting plot.

The second book in Talia's series. It mostly focuses on her leaving the collegium and actually being a herald though she's still in training. However, it's not as simple as the description I gave sounds, multiple things happen and even though she's out of Haven issues from the city keep affecting her. Still one of my favorite series by this author. ( )

This continues the story of Talia as she qualifies to be a full-fledged Herald, and finds out that the white arrows that are a Herald's badge are actually message arrows. As the Queen's Own Herald, she also sits in on court business, as well as her normal heraldic duties. The first of those duties, as a newly-qualified Herald, is to ride circuit for a year and a half around the far-flung towns of a sector of Valdemar with another Herald as her counsellor, to complete her training. While on circuit, the Heralds act on the Queen's behalf, hearing disputes and meeting out justice impartially.

I felt that the narrative was a bit slow. Instead of making more of Talia's time in court, or her experiences on circuit, the plot focussed on her emotions, with the drama turning on the characters' refusal to discuss the elephant in the room and prolonging the agony. Talia's Companion, Rolan, especially, should have forced the issue but uncharacteristically (I felt) he refused to discuss it.

Not the best of the Valdemar books, I feel, but not the worst.

This is the second book in a series that starts with Arrows of the Queen. It seems that many times the middle book of a trilogy is a bit weaker; this one is just as strong as its predecessor. There are problems to be overcome; people grow and change in this story. There is foreshadowing for the next book and you'll find yourself saying "So that's what it meant!"

Each fantasy reader should have this in his or her personal library. ( )
