"Thirteen year old Prince Kyril and Mags and Amily's fourteen-year-old son Tory 'share' the Gift of Farsight--although neither of them are Chosen. They are self-trained, though currently, their shared Gift only allows them to see what is happening with their immediate family members. After much debate, the Herald's Collegium has decided to test and train them anyway. That's when the surprises start. They do not share a single Gift; they have two complementary Gifts working together in a way that the Heralds have never seen before. Tory is the Farseer--Kee's Gift is to extend his range beyond a few dozen feet. Their Gifts become crucial when Mags gets a desperate message from his cousin Bey, the head of the enigmatic assassin-tribe, the Sleepgivers. Bey's eldest daughter has been kidnapped, but he doesn't know why or by whom. He's calling in the debt Mags owes him to find his daughter before it's too late. Tory is certain that if anyone can find her, he can. But that will mean traveling out of Valdemar into an unknown, dangerous country. And it will mean taking a Royal Prince with him"--… (mere)

This one follows another one of Mags’ kids on an adventure as he is growing up. Tory and his best friend Prince Kyril work in tandem with a gift of Farsight that only allows them to look at family members of either of them only. Kyril is down the list of possible heirs and isn’t Chosen so he has more freedom than his older siblings. He works with Tory helping Mags with his spy work. When Mags’ Sieepgiver kin come to him asking for his help to find one of their missing kids, Tony and Kyril realized they have a connection and can possibly locate her after feeling her fear when she was taken by the Karsites. Once they get closer to the Sleepgiver’s lands they can use their talent to find her on a map. But Kyril decides that they must go and help rescue Sira. A good entertaining story and it sets both boys on their adult paths.

It is time for the youngest of Mags and Amily's children to have his own adventure. Tory is a talented spy but he hasn't been Chosen by a Companion. He and his best friend Kee, who is the fourth child of the King and Queen of Valdemar, have a shared psychic talent which allows them to Farsee their relatives when they work together. They also have been trained by Mags to use some of the Sleepgiver's tricks to help them be better spies.

When they get a strong signal from a source they don't recognize, they don't know what to do. But when a sleepgiver named Ahkhan comes to Valdemar to ask Mags for help to locate a missing person and offers a deal Valdemar doesn't want to refuse, Tory and Kee agree to go along to help find the missing young woman.

Meanwhile, Sira tells her story about her life as a sleepgiver and what happens when she is captured by Karsites who control demons. Sira is also a mage who is looking at some of the talismans found by their mages and it is a good thing she had them with her. Each talisman contains and afrinn who is a personification of one of the elements. When she frees them from the talismans they are able to help her escape from the Karsite prison which coincides with Ahkhan, Tory, and Kee's arrival at the prison.

Then it is necessary for them to flee across Karse while being chased by demons in order to reach the safety of Valdemar. Along the way Kee and Sira fall in love which is wonderful for them, or it will be, once all the problems are solved. Kee learns he is a powerful mage which means he can't live in Valdemar anymore since spirits prohibit magic in Valdemar. And Tory doesn't know what he will do in his future since he doesn't have any powers except when he works with Kee.

This was a great adventure which was also a great story about friendship and change. ( )

I like the books Mercedes Lackey writes, she is good at creating a believable world and people to populate it. While her writing is not the strongest I do find it engaging ang and enjoyable. I like a series I can live inside of and her books are ones that have characters I feel invested in and a world I believe could exist. ( )

About as co-incidence ridden a plot as any author could contrive, we go on a quest with Tory Mag's son and Kyril the 4th child of the King to seek the location of a young assassin cousin who disappeared near the border with Karse. ( )

Another of Mag's children though not a chosen herald has a far-seeing gift with limitations. He and his princely friend "Kee", with a complimentary gift are chosen to save a princess from a tower. No ordinary princess, Sira is a well trained and practicing assassin. Lots of serious bad guys and demons from Karse need to be dispatched before she can be rescued. A rousing good story from an excellent storyteller continues and expands the Valdemar Canon nicely. ( )

Tory and his best friend, Prince Kyril—Kee, to him—finished their long trudge across Companion’s Field and paused at the high stone wall surrounding the entire Palace complex just as the last of the sun disappeared in the west.
