A Companion seeks out one of the lizardlike hertasi to act as a guide through the treacherous swamplands of the Gripping Mire in "Finding the Way," cowritten by Lackey and Larry Dixon, while in "The Groom's Price," by Michael Z. Williamson and Gail Sanders, a young warrior from the Plains must come to terms with the magic he has inherited. The sixth collection set in Lackey's world of Valdemar presents stories of Heralds and their telepathic horselike Companions and of Bards and Healers, and provides glimpses of the many other aspects of a setting that has a large and avid readership.
VERDICT The 15 original tales in this volume will appeal primarily to series fans.
