Throwback Thursday

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Throwback Thursday – this is a weekly event hosted by me! It is the time each week to recognize those older books… an older book you’ve always wanted to read, or one that you have read and love; maybe one from your childhood; or review an older book -- how about even a classic! Leave a comment here and feel free to take an icon and use it on your blog!

This week's throwback is:

Arrows of the Queen (Heralds of Valdemar #1) by Mercedes Lackey

Chosen by the Companion Rolan, a mystical horse-like being with powers beyond imagining, Talia, once a runaway, has now become a trainee Herald, destined to become one of the Queens's own elite guard. For Talia has certain awakening talents of the mind that only a Companion like Rolan can truly sense.

But as Talia struggles to master her unique abilities, time is running out. For conspiracy is brewing in Valdemar, a deadly treason which could destroy Queen and kingdom. Opposed by unknown enemies capable of both diabolical magic and treacherous assassination, the Queen must turn to Talia and the Heralds for aid in protecting the realm and insuring the future of the queen's heir, a child already in danger of becoming bespelled by the Queen's own foes.

I'm not going to say very much about this book right now... but stay tuned tomorrow because I will be posting more about this book and genre!

I really liked this trilogy and it's one I actually kept. Vanyel, another one of her trilogies, is one of my earliest heroes (along with Pug of the Riftwar saga).

Thanks for the the throwback.
