This book is the back story of the development of the Collegia System in Valdemar.

This book really is a great way to start a new Herald Story. I love how it is a believable story that uses not only magic but pure self motivation to make a change and create what becomes an excellent story.

You'll likely like it if you like other Valdemar novels but it's even a good read if you've no knowledge of the world created by M. Lackey. Here, the Heralds', as well as the Bardic's and Healer's college is new, but the focus is once again on struggle, hope and friendship.

If you know this series = it is the start of the college and how heralds reacted. As usual characters that you can identify with.
