Mags was a Herald of Valdemar. But he had once lived the
brutal life of a child slave. When he was Chosen by his
Companion Dallen, his young life was saved, and he slowly
adjusted to being well fed, educated, and treasured as a
trainee in the Herald's Collegium at Haven. Singled out by
the King's Own Herald, Mags would thrive in his secret
training as a spy. His unusually strong Giftâ€”an ability to
Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were
Giftedâ€”made him a perfect undercover agent for the king.
Sequel to Mercedes Lackey's CLOSER TO HOME, this adventure
continues Mags's journey as Valdemar's herald spy.
