The Library Archives.....
Here is a list of the books that are written by Mercedes Lackey, not just the series on Heralds, but the series on Bardic Choices as well, for we also have a short section on that in our Study of Magic.
Heralds Of Valdemar:Mage Wars Trilogy (With Larry Dixon): This marks the beginning of the series, starting from before Valdemar was formed, when the Mages were battling each other. The books here are The Black Gryphon, The White Gryphon, and The Silver Gryphon.
The Last Herald Mage Trilogy:
This is the story of Herald-Mage Vanyel, back when Heralds still could be mages in Valdemar. The series tell of his battles against evil and his fight to protect Valdemar from its enemies. The books here: Magic's Pawn, Magic's Promise, and Magic's Price.
Heralds Of Valdemar Trilogy:
This is the story of how Talia, a young teenager, gets chosen by the Companion Rolan to be his Chosen and thus the Queen's Own, and tells of Talia's exploits, both before and after becoming a Herald. The tales are told in Arrows Of The Queen, Arrow's Flight, and Arrow's Fall.
There is only one book in this series, By the Sword, and it tells of how Kerowyn, grand-daughter of the mage Kethry, travels to find her own destiny, and of how she manages to discover her true love, her lifebonded, and of how she eventually becomes a Herald in Valdemar.
Mage Winds Trilogy:
This particular series should be considered the climax of the Valdemar books, as it tells the tale of how Princess Elspeth, once a Royal Brat but now a Herald with her Companion Gwena, journeys to the vale of the Hawkbrothers to search for the magic that has disappeared from Valdemar. The books from this series are Winds Of Fate, Winds Of Change, and Winds Of Fury.
Mage Storms Trilogy:
This trilogy is about how Valdemar and Karse finally ally together against the evil, magic-using Empire, and together prepare to defend against the strange mage storms that have appeared, residue from the magic used in the Mage Wars, mage storms that render any magic-user hit by it virtually senseless. The books: Storm Warning, Storm Rising, and Storm Breaking.
