Lovely addition to the Valdemar world...

Crucible is the 9th book of short stories within the Tales of Valdemar series. The stories are all set within the Valdemar world, created by author Mercedes Lackey, written by a variety of authors. They combine Lackey’s world and characters with new characters in new stories. Several of the short stories are part of mini-series written by some of the authors, the stories scattered throughout the Tales of Valdemar volumes. The stories are not necessary for continuity within the greater Valdemar series, but they are fun and interesting episodic sides.
