Editorial Reviews

Review

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.... 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

"An entertaining fantasy starring a likable lead character." —Midwest Book Reviews

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