Chosen by the Companion Rolan, a mystical horse-like being with powers beyond imagining, Talia, once a runaway, has now become a trainee Herald, destined to become one of the Queen's own elite guard. For Talia has certain awakening talents of the mind that only a Companion like Rolan can truly sense.

But as Talia struggles to master her unique abilities, time is running out. For conspiracy is brewing in Valdemar, a deadly treason that could destroy Queen and kingdom. Opposed by unknown enemies capable of both diabolical magic and treacherous assassination, the Queen must turn to Talia and the Heralds for aid in protecting the realm and insuring the future of the Queen's heir, a child already in danger of becoming bespelled by the Queen's own foes.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jesse | 2/19/2014

    " I read this one, and I barely remember it.. But it's by Lackey, so it must be okay. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgena | 2/7/2014

    " This is the first book I read of Lackey's - I now own the whole series and a few more. Good read with a great world and fast paced enough to keep you reading when you should be sleeping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Nichols | 1/26/2014

    " Basically, this is a rewrite of McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern, but without the trace science-fictional trappings, and with horses instead of dragons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matthew Farr | 1/26/2014

    " While not perfect I can understand why so many friends have recommended it over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren Burnham | 1/10/2014

    " Her first Valdemar book, and one worth reading again. Very good descriptions. Young adult, so keep that in mind "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ericka | 12/20/2013

    " On loan from the boyfriend's sister. Fantasy hasn't been my typical fare lately, but I'm getting into it. Good thing it's the first of a series ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twiztid Cat | 11/26/2013

    " This was the first book by Mercedes Lackey I ever read. I was in 8th grade. It was really good and lead me to the rest of the books she wrote, and I continue to read her new releases. I reread it, and it's still a fun book. Good introduction to the world of companions and the queens own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Summer | 11/25/2013

    " The first four Heralds of Valdemar are the best of Lackey (I've read ~12 of hers). The second novel is only OK. The first is definitely the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecilia | 8/17/2013

    " I like the series, but the plots are remarkably similar - hard luck kid gets Chosen, struggles a bit, then finds his/her place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 5/5/2013

    " This is my favorite book ever. I first read it when I was in 5thish grade, and have loved it and reread it numerous times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 7/21/2012

    " Some days, this is my favorite series and somedays it's my second favorite. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/8/2011

    " My favorite fantasy author and possibly my favorite author period. This first Trilogy is one of the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian | 10/18/2011

    " Mercedes Lackey is my very most favorite author. I've only listed this book here because it's the one to start with and it would take way too long to add all of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ms. Library | 9/4/2011

    " Really fun. I enjoyed a lot of things about this. I enjoyed how Lackey didn't hide from having her character deal with long-term verbal abuse, and I liked that it was frank about sex. It was just a really fun take on the fantasy genre, and I will definitely be reading the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 8/9/2011

    " Review coming. This is a classic read for any girl or woman who loves fantasy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 7/8/2011

    " Reread for the nostalgia factor and it really didn't hold up, alas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Haley | 6/17/2011

    " I can't wait to see what happens next. Completely compelling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen E | 6/13/2011

    " Way back in middle school, I devoured this series and cried quarts over the third book. I thought I would try them to see how I thought they stood up. It was pretty cliched--very Chosen One who turns out to have ALL the powers--but it's also deftly done, which helps a lot. (Dec 2011) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrysty | 6/1/2011

    " This book got me hooked on Mercedes Lackey. The series may have some triggers for some people though. "
