        Mercedes entered this world on June 24, 1950, in Chicago, had a normal childhood and graduated from Purdue University in 1972 During the late 70 s she worked as an artist s model and then went into the computer programming field, ending up with American Airlines in Tulsa, Oklahoma In addition to her fantasy writing, she has written lyrics for and recorded nearly fifty songs for Firebird Arts Music, a small recording company specializing in science fiction folk music I m a storyteller that s what I see as my job My stories come out of my characters how those characters would react to the given situation Maybe that s why I get letters from readers as young as thirteen and as old as sixty odd One of the reasons I write song lyrics is because I see songs as a kind of story pill they reduce a story to the barest essentials or encapsulate a particular crucial moment in time I frequently will write a lyric when I am attempting to get to the heart of a crucial scene I find that when I have done so, the scene has become absolutely clear in my mind, and I can write exactly what I wanted to say Another reason is because of the kind of novels I am writing that is, fantasy, set in an other world semi medieval atmosphere Music is very important to medieval peoples bards are the chief newsbringers When I write the folk music of these peoples, I am enriching my whole world, whether I actually use the song in the text or not I began writing out of boredom I continue out of addiction I can t not write, and as a result I have no social life I began writing fantasy because I love it, but I try to construct my fantasy worlds with all the care of a high tech science fiction writer I apply the principle of TANSTAAFL There ain t no such thing as free lunch , credited to Robert Heinlein to magic, for instance in my worlds, magic is paid for, and the cost to the magician is frequently a high one I try to keep my world as solid and real as possible people deal with stubborn pumps, bugs in the porridge, and love lives that refuse to become untangled, right along with invading armies and evil magicians And I try to make all of my characters, even the evil magicians, something than flat stereotypes Even evil magicians get up in the night and look for cookies, sometimes I suppose that in everything I write I try to expound the creed I gave my character Diana Tregarde in Burning Water There s no such thing as one, true way the only answers worth having are the ones you find for yourself leave the world better than you found it Love, freedom, and the chance to do some good they re the things worth living and dying for, and if you aren t willing to die for the things worth living for, you might as well turn in your membership in the human race Also writes as Misty LackeyAuthor s website

    1. And so the Taleydras and gryphons come to Valdemar, and both Falconsbane and Ancar are finally defeated.


    2. Finally the big conclusion to the whole Ancar/Falconsbane arc! We get some very good revenge, some epic pairings and best of all this leads into the next set of books, which I skipped and read out of order haha. This feels like a kind of bridging series; after a while Mercedes writing becomes more polished and distinct and you get elements in this one. I will freely admit that the Owlmage books are my favorite series, and this series lays down some of the foundations for them.Another great Valde [...]


    3. Winds of Fury is the third book in the Mage Winds trilogy, so you'd at least want to go read the first two books, starting with Winds of Fate first and I'd also recommend you first read the trilogy that starts with Arrows of the Queen. I liken the Valdemar series to good comfort food. No, this isn't very literary in quality, but I find myself rereading the series every few years, because I like the characters and the world Lackey created. I don't think this trilogy has quite the same verve as th [...]


    4. The first book had Elspeth the Heir. The second book had Elspeth the Brat. The third book has Elspeth the Herald, or, as I like to think, Elspeth, the "being heir no longer fits in with my life goals even thought I'm not sure what those are yet". As you can tell, Elspeth is not my favorite character. It was a bit interesting seeing the reaction, in Haven, to the exotic people, both human and non-human, that she returns with. But I end up feeling disappointed about how Lackey wrote Skif in these [...]


    5. Mercedes Lackey's third book of the Mage Wind's series was a satisfying conclusion. I like the way Mercedes builds a main character's journey through these Valdemar trilogy sets. Elspeth was a great character to get to know and watch grow in some ways. Some of the story resolutions were rushed, and other pieces a little drawn out, but overall I enjoyed many of these characters. Knowing her writing style, I doubt I'll see them much in other books except as auxillary characters, which is a shame b [...]



    6. Mercedes has created the fabulous world of Valdemar. It is chock full of Magic,mystery,romance,suspense. One of the best fantasy series I've ever read.


    7. In "Winds of Fury," Lackey brings the "Mage Winds" trilogy to an appropriately magical close. There are journeys, avatars, pitched magical battles, and of course, all the talking animals. Did I mention the talking and/or telepathic animals? Because I think they deserve mention again. There are not just horses, but also bondbirds, deer-creatures, and gryphons. Really, anything you might want.In fact, it's fascinating that communion with non-human animals is such a feature in fantasy literature. T [...]


    8. This book was fine, but not particularly impressive. It was generally enjoyable to read, but everything felt a bit rushed (which I couldn't find much of an excuse for because the build up to get into the story took forever at the beginning of the book, and the book itself was pretty long). In particular, I thought that relationships that were dynamic before became somewhat two-dimensional, and foes that were built up to be formidable opponents were readily dispatched without much explanation or [...]


    9. Since I was 14The land over Valdemar has held me in thrall. The Last Herald Mage series is what spoke most to my heart. Vanyel was an inspiration to me and still is my favorite literary figure. I was very happy to see that his progeny were featured in these book set 700 years after his time. Firesong and Elspeth do him justice in their strength and ingenuity. Thank you Mercedes for inspiring generation after generation and many more to come with your literary whit and style. You are loved by man [...]


    10. "We will do well wherever we go. Home should be in your heart."An awesome end to an awesome trilogy. I loved seeing what happens to Falconsbane, and getting to see how everything plays out with Valdemar's magical wards coming down. From how much I hated Elspeth in the Arrows of the Queen trilogy, to how annoying I found her even at the beginning of this trilogy, she has grown into such an amazing woman and an awesome character.


    11. There were several elements of this trilogy that I enjoyed: all the fantastic creatures, the various types of magic, the settings. But it felt like too many elements were being thrown into the story at once, and there were references to books I have not read yet (because I'm trying to read them in order). I think that causes some confusion, and for me, boredom. Not one of her better works.


    12. FreedomAndesha lost all he was when a evil adept took over his body. Used him to hurt others and to experiment on his own body. Fought back with all his spirit and earned his freedom from darkness.



    13. I finished reading all the Valdemar series by Mercedes Lackey - over 30 books in two months. I enjoyed them all!





    14. Love itThis is the conclusion of the trilogy, and it handles itself well. I loved this book, and this author. Yes.



    15. Winds of Fury is the third book in the Mage Winds trilogy, and is not only a satisfying but also quite creative and interesting conclusion to that part of Valdemar's history. The war with Ancar rages on, and the stakes are even higher now that, thanks to Ancar botching a spell, he has Falconsbane in his clutches and under magical coercions. Magic has returned to Valdemar and mages are being recruited from all over, and those with mage-potential are being looked for and trained. Everything's lead [...]


    16. I'm battling nostalgia and the positive feelings I had toward this series as a kid. Lackey writes action and battle/fight scenes incredibly well, but this book seriously lacks action and is very heavy on character rumination. The previous books had significantly more character conflict, the characters in Fury are very cardboard-like. The bad guys are super bad and the good guys are super good, it's just not interesting to read about characters that are portrayed this way, there's no depth and co [...]


    17. The third instalment of the 'winds' trilogy starts out better than the other two. For awhile there, I was starting to worry I'd actually LIKE a book with Elspeth as the protagonist.Elspeth has finally matured to the point where she's bearable, I'll give the book that. The plot is also more interesting than the plot of the first two books, probably because it brings us back to Valdemar and the previously dangling plot. Unfortunately, upon the characters' return the reader discovers they've missed [...]


    18. Mercedes LackeyÔÇÖs Valdemar series provides one of the cornerstones of my reading history. After discovering her when quite young, I still follow new additions to the series - nearly twenty years later! I read and re-read these books over and over again throughout my youth, but I haven't re-read this series in its entirety in a long time - and never as an adult. There are some new books added to the series since the last time I read them, so this re-reading project is pretty exciting for me sin [...]


    19. I think this is probably the last book I'm reading in the series, I've just found it quite frustrating. This is the end of a trilogy but it just doesn't feel like it's come to a happy conclusion- there's still a huge threat looming over Valdemar and the way it ended just felt like a cliffhanger, exactly the same thing happened after Arrow's Fall- it was the end of a trilogy but the threat of the war with Ancar was looming so large that it didn't feel like a nice conclusion so I carried on readin [...]


    20. Although not the drag to get through that the second book in the series is, I found this book a bit oddly paced. Winds of Change ends with everyone geared up to head back to Valdemar, so it's a bit disconcerting when this book starts with "actually we can't go straight there because of Reasons" - only for our characters to get dragged there straight away once they DO set out!I was looking forward to seeing the characters we've spent time with in the last two books, who are either very strange or [...]


    21. Aw, this one left me with a warm fuzzy feeling. I think Lackey's storytelling skills are getting stronger. In this book we meet a character who has previously been hidden inside another character's mind, which is pretty cool. And there's a lot of comic relief and light moments, to balance out the ~pure evil~ of the three malicious villains. I think the balance works. I especially enjoyed the romance between Darkwind and Elspeth in this one, which is sweet without being too sappy.Everything works [...]


    22. A decent end to a decent trilogy. This book did feel rather rushed and I think it could have benefited from being a little longer. It was also a little confusing to have all this focus on villains in the last installment to the series rather than much of anything through the two books before it. Those little conveniences that popped up to make everything work out as needed for the characters in the previous books were still hanging around in this one, which I saw no reason not to expect. It's ra [...]


    23. Wrapped upIn this, the task is to finish the story, wrap up the loose ends all the while actually moving a plot with new characters and their histories with it. It's both simpler and busier. Good read!


    24. Despite my loathing for the first two-thirds of this trilogy, I actually like Winds of Fury just fine. It's got a plot, it's got a villain, it goes somewhere and is an interesting ride most of the time - all things the earlier books fail on.The thing that really pulls it together is the introduction of An'desha as an actual character. The idea of a villain that's literally occupying the body of a conscious and self-willed innocent is interesting, and handled deftly. He's the interesting characte [...]
