"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 Gift--an ability to Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were Gifted--made him a perfect undercover agent for the king" --… (mere)

Better than the previous lot of books including Herald Mags, but there is still that horrid kirball in it. There are rather too many inconsistencies in this book. Also, the ending was just too convenient. ( )

The sequel to Closer to Home starts with the planning of Mags and Amily which is quickly becoming a State event with Amily being the King’s Own. This plot is shoved to the background with problems in Rethwellan comes to the attention of the King. It seems a plot to overthrow the government is being fronted by Valdemar. Mags goes undercover with the King’s spymaster and his newest student in order to find out who is running the plot. The plot is uncovered and there is a nice happy ending. ( )

Bei "Closer to the Heart" handelt es sich um den zweiten Teil der "Herald Spy" Trilogie, und auch dieser Band spielt wieder in der Hauptstadt von Valdemar, Haven.

In diesem Band wird - im Gegensatz zu anderen Valdemar-Trilogien - kaum auf die Geschichte des 1. Teils zurückgegriffen, er könnte also auch unabhängig gelesen werden. Aber ... die Geschehnisse der Collegia-Miniserie spielen weiterhin eine große Rolle, daher würde ich empfehlen, mit "Foundation", dann wäre es der 7. Band um Mags, Amily und Nikolas.

In diesem Band lernen wir Tucks und Linden als neue Charaktäre kennen, die mich von der ersten Beschreibung her an Quasimodo und Esmeralda erinnert haben. Aber im Laufe der Geschichte spielte das dann keine Rolle mehr. Die Liebe kommt aber nicht zu kurz, denn Mags und Amily wollen heiraten - und nach den Geschehnissen im ersten Band soll das auf Wunsch des Königs Kyrill auch eine große, öffentliche Hochzeit werden. Doch sowohl Mags als Herald Spy sowie Amily, Kings Own, wissen, wie viel bei solch großen Planungen dazwischen kommen kann... Und es kommt, wie es kommen muss - im benachbarten Königreich wird es unruhig, Valdemar scheint Waffen an den Rebellenanführer zu liefern und es wird mit Krieg gedroht. Und Nikolas, Mags und Amily haben in ihrer Jobbeschreibung, dass sie sich um die Aufklärung kümmeren müssen... Unterstützung erhalten sie von Lord Jorthum und seiner Frau Dia und den Queen's Handmaidens.

Alles in allem wieder eine solide Story, die zum Teil auch außerhalb von Haven spielt und auch Kirball wieder Raum gibt. Und wie sonst auch wird es zum Ende hin nochmal extra spannend. Aus meiner Sicht also eine gute Fortsetzung der Reihe. ( )

A good author is always a good storyteller. Mercedes Lackey is well beyond good. She keeps on rolling with some new challenges for Mags and Amily as they grow into their roles as spymaster and the King's Own. ( )

A good solid Herald story - like Closer to Home, and unlike the first Mags series. Amily grows into her new responsibilities, on several levels; Mags does too, despite it meaning him having to leave Amily behind for a scouting expedition. Some very interesting discoveries about people who have been minor characters, and some new characters who are clearly going to be important. And a threat of war looming over all, and driving the story in ways large and small. Yet another kidnapping - lampshaded by Mags complaining about it! The villain is relatively easily defeated, after all - and honestly, the confrontation with his troops afterward was a bit too easy. I wonder if he had some talent that allowed him to sway people so easily? The Guard should have known he wasn't really a general. But getting to the position where they could achieve that easy defeat took some serious doing. The Handmaidens are going to be an interesting addition to the series, too, as well as Mags' child army. Fun, worth reading, and I'm looking forward to the next. ( )
