First book in Lackey's new Mage Storms trilogy, a sequel to her previous Mage Winds trilogy.
This is the first book in what is probably the best of Lackey's many many fantasy series about the Kingdom of Valdemar.
Loved the series. This is the first of three and a wonderful book.
Well, I did remember just about everything about this one. It is the slowest moving of three, that is for sure, but it wasn't a painful re-read or anything like that... though I do remember being a bit disappointed the first time I read it because it takes a while for Karal to become as likable of a character as say, Elspeth or Talia. Although, Altra and Florian do help that. And the problems of this trilogy are probably the most interesting because everything is so dire. So, I am excited to read the next two, though I am now starting to think that there is very little that I don't recall from all of my previous re-reads.
