In The Mage Winds trilogy, which began with the best-selling novel, Winds of Fate, author Mercedes Lackey continues the epic that started with her first published book, Arrows of the Queen introduced readers to the remarkable land of Valdemar, the kingdom protected by its Heralds--men and women gifted with extraordinary mind powers--aided and served by their mysterious Companions--horselike beings who know the many secrets of Valdemar's magical heritage. None but the Companions remember the long-ago age when high magic was lost to Valdemar as the last Herald-Mage gave his life to protect his kingdom from destruction by dark sorceries. But now the protective barrier set so long ago over Valdemar is crumbling, and with the realm imperiled by the dark magic of Ancar of Hardorn, Princess Elspeth, Herald and heir to the throne, has gone on a desperate quest in search of a mentor who can teach her to wield her fledgling mage-powers and help her to defend her threatened kingdom.… (mais)

This one was a struggle to get through. The story just didn't seem very cohesive. Was very happy to see the firm tie up at the end though ( )

This is the second book in a trilogy, the one where tradition has the protagonists wandering somewhat somewhat aimlessly over the face of their particular world (think of Tolkien's 'Two Towers' and while this series's storyline doesn't quite allow for that degree of movement, the two main protagonissts in this book, Elspeth, heir to the Valdemaran Throne, and Darkwind, former Taledras Adept and scout have their wandertime as they (re)learn their mage powers and learn about he enemy facing them. There is a degree of preachiness as they both come to terms with their quirks and attempt to become accepting all. ( )

Another read that I couldn't put down. It's definitely full of foreshadowing - both for the third book in this series and for future books in the world of Valdemar.

Winds of Change is both better and worse than Winds of Fate. The writing is substantially more even - we spend less time in Darkwind's head, which is the main problem with the earlier book. The stupid jealousy subplots are present and just as stupid - this is one of my chief pet peeves, the plot where lovers work themselves into a tizzy assuming their lover is attracted to someone else, when the reader - having access to everyone's head - knows that this is totally not the case. Total waste of my time.

Speaking of wastes of time, the villain doesn't make an appearance until 350 pages in. The book is basically a training montage for the various characters. Nothing of substance actually happens, and the "big battle" at the end feels tacked-on and far too easy.

There's some mildly interesting character development, but other than that, this book is utterly skippable even as the middle book in the trilogy. ( )

This one is, for the first 3/4ths at least, mostly about relationships rather than adventures and quests. Skif is seeking Nyara, but his reasons - and her reasons for disappearing - are the focus, rather than Skif and Wintermoon's adventures while hunting. Darkwind is teaching Elspeth, but again the focus is on their relationship - or relationships - rather than on the lessons themselves. And so on. Darkwind and Starblade; Darkwind, Elspeth, and Firesong; Skif and Wintermoon; Nyara and Need; Nyara and Skif...lots of interactions and reconsiderations. Near the end, it goes back to being an adventure - Falconsbane pokes his head up, in a very nasty attack that comes way too close to succeeding, and they all work together (including Treyvan and Hydona's Clanmates, who show up just in time to help) to take care of him once and for all. Nyara is the focus of the job, but everyone contributes, and it seems that it worked. So then it's time to move on - and all those relationships come into play as they decide who goes where and does what. Very much the middle of a story, though it comes to a reasonable conclusion. ( )
