You won't run into that here, or in many future Valdemar anthologies!
I've read these in hardcopy, years ago, but after reading the recently released 12th collection, I felt nostalgic and went back to the beginning.
That's the thing about fantasies, they never get old!
Most of the stories dealt with war and its harsh realities. Perhaps it's a reflection of the era in which we live, perhaps it's because a good battle makes a good story. Either way, these tales go beyond just a story. They evoke a life, and a world, in which we all would want to live.
Mercedes Lackey brings us another tale of Tarma and Kethry, and I am glad, for to me, no Valdemar collection would be complete without these legendary figures. It was their books that got me to thinking about paganism, and their stories broadened an already wide world.
With works by such diverse authors as Michael Z. Williamson, Mickey Zucker Riechert, Tanya Huff, Fiona Patton, Judith Tarr, Brenda Cooper, and others, the authors' unique voices shine through united in a love of the world that Mercedes Lackey created. Like many others, I hope this isn't her last Valdemar book, but if it is, then it is a worthy grand finale.

Like the quality of the stories their relation to Vaqldimar varies. Some could have as well been set in Venice, LA or NY (and some of these were very good too). Overall and excellent read.
