Arrows of the Queen (Heralds of Valdemar, Bk 1)
reviewed on


I was recommended this book as an introduction to Valdemar, and I wasn't impressed. Talia is a glaring Mary Sue, Lackey has a tendency to tell everything and show nothing, the worldbuilding uses far too many Capital Letters to describe Important Things and far too much handwaving, and if there was a plot I didn't notice it. It was a fun read for a few days, and I kept hoping it would get better, but it never did. Not the worst book I've ever read, but a disappointment overall.
