Alberich had spent most of his youth in the Karsite military schools training to be an officer. As the son of an impoverished mother, he had no other career choice open to him. And Alberich had risen in the ranks with almost unnatural speed. He developed expertise with many weapons and excelled in academic subjects with an ease that was the envy of his classmates. But in fact, the reclusive Alberich studied long and hard, pushing himself ruthlessly.   In battle, Alberich had always had a sort of "sixth sense" about things which were about to happen--when and from where the enemy would attack. Instinctively, he his this ability, for the Sunpriests kept careful watch for anyone exhibiting "demon powers" which were the hallmark of Karse's greatest enemy--the witch-nation of Valdemar. Those they caught were "cleansed" in the fires of Vkandis Sunlord.   Both Alberich's skill and secret served him well in the army of Karse, and when Alberich became one of Karse's youngest captains, he received a special gift--a powerful white stallion "liberated" from the enemy. But this honor was merely a distraction, for the Sunpriests had laid a trap which even Alberich's strange foresight could not predict...   Saved from burning as a witch when this odd white stallion braved flames and carried him over the border into Valdemar, he was healed by the same enemies he had been taught to hate his entire life. Though he knew he could never again return to his home, Alberich also knew he could never truly become a Valdemaran. How could Alberich remain true to his own people and still retain his honor while helping to train the direst enemy of Karse?… (mais)

I read this book as an assignment for a class in writing Fantasy and Science Fiction. We were guided in reading it critically, not so much with regard to the prose as to the plot, pacing, and character development. At first I didn't like it but it became more appealing the further that got into it. The hero's dilemma is thought-provoking and he is an engaging character. ( )

Interesting entry in the Valdemar sagas; enjoyable read. No real surprises if you've read a lot of the Valdemar books but still interesting having it from Alberich's point of view. ( )

With this book, we're getting to the events featured in the original Heralds of Valdemar novels.

In this book, we get to look at the early life of Herald Alberich, late of Karse, as he comes to terms with being Chosen (always a shock), nearly burnt alive by the everloving Sun Priests of Karse, his homeland and hereditary enemy of Valdemar. Ms Lackey also provides us with a Mary Sue character in the form of Herald Myste, Herald Chronicler of Valdemar. The book over its story looks at what it means to be an exile and whether it is correct to fight against your home land whether or not it wanted you, or for the one that had taken you in and treated you without complaint (in the most part) ( )

The problem with books that are chronologically set before the time of the latest books is that the author has to choose how much backstory to reveal and how obvious to make it...in this case a little too obvious. She really pounds the point home that he has to tougher than anything his students will face outside in order to help them survive - tougher! survive! aarrrrgggghhhhh!! Nice fleshing out of part of the world she created, maybe not requiring sooo much paper to tell it though. ( )
