        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. This is probably one of my least favorite Mercedes Lackey books. Unlike the first book in this series, this one has almost no action and instead revolves around conversation- and mostly it's pretty boring. It goes something like this; "Hey how about we do this?" "Well, if we do that, then this will be affected, and then this person will be offended" "Well, what about this then?" and it goes on and on and nothing much actually gets done. There is plenty of thoughts, traditions and who is offendin [...]


    2. Loveable characters are back (view spoiler)[with kids! (hide spoiler)] Thoroughly enjoyable and an easy read, I was cheering for the main characters at the end and I loved how Lackey wrote Kechara <3 I actually think it is the strongest book of the three. It also helped that it was more mystery and suspense, which is one of my favourite genres. Also really quite fun/funny in some parts. A nice take on civilisations meeting. It is written for teens so keep that it mind. (The bad guys are bad, [...]


    3. "A noble heart is supposed to live and find joy in the responsibility."Not as good as The Black Gryphon, but compelling in a different way. The Black Gryphon is all action, all go, go, go!. The White Gryphon is all politics and mystery and detective work and who-done-it? It has the same slow start TBG had, but once the plot got rolling it just kept going and didn't stop.


    4. Too long. Plot was in the first and last 3 chapters. I really didn't need the survival guide in the middle. I love her books but I was really only finished it because I had nothing else to read on the plane.





    5. It's been a while since I've done any work on the Great Valdemar Reread, but now I'm back at it. Can't let these books languish, after all!The White Gryphon is the second book of the Mage Wars trilogy, set back in Velgarth's prehistory. The war itself has ended. Urtho and Ma'ar have been destroyed, and the Kaled'a'in have wandered far to find a new home. Finally they've found it, and built into cliff the city they would go on to call White Gryphon, in honour of Skandranon's new magic-bleached co [...]


    6. The White Gryphon The White Gryphon picks up several years after the end of The Black Gryphon. The war is over and the everyone has fled to different parts of the world. Skan, Drake, Winterhart, and Zaneel have escaped together, along with many others of Urtho's former realm. They have made their way south through treachorous land and through tremondous magical storms. Magic is still unpredictable at best, but they have found a home and resettled, using magic to build whenever they can. Skan has [...]



    7. The White Gryphon was a fairly entertaining fantasy book, and it proved to be an excellent follow up to The Black Gryphon.Following the events of The Black Gryphon, the survivors of the Cataclysm have established the settlement of White Gryphon on the northern border of the Haighlei Kingdoms. A group of Haighlei are dispatched to remove the inhabitants of White Gryphon, but are instead convinced by Skandranon, Amberdrake, and the other leaders of White Gryphon to consider accepting them as allie [...]


    8. Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar series provides one of the cornerstones of my reading past. 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 since [...]


    9. Skandranon and Amberdrake are forced, once again to protect those they care about. They agree, along with their families, to be envoys to the Black Kings in order to try and forge an alliance with them. That alliance is quickly threatened when a series of noblewomen who opposed the alliance are found slaughtered in their rooms. All evidence points to one of the envoys and it's up to them to prove their innocence.I have read this book countless times but for some reason I ended up taking a differ [...]


    10. It has been ten years since the magical Cataclysm, which destroyed the twin strongholds of the two world's most powerful Mages, killing Urtho, creator of the gryphons, and sending his forces into exile. Now Urthro's peoples--human and non-human alike live in a terraced city carved into the face of a gleaming white cliff on the edge of the Western Ocean. Secure at least, until the fleet of the mysterious Black Kings appears in their harbor, bringing envoys who inform the residents of White Grypho [...]


    11. This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon . Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.The city of the Black Gryphon has been in operation for 10 years after the collapse of Urtho's empire. Now threatened by the black skinned owners of their land, Skan and Amberdrake are threatened as never before.Skan returns - but he's fat and bored with life. The novel here sees him getting back into shape, but also being saved only by the smidg [...]


    12. Skan returns! With whole new problems and enemies to boot! I'd say this story is darker not a fun 'darker' like with Dracula, not 'horror' darker, there's a particularly twisted character in this book that I am DEFINITELY glad I didn't have to dream up to pit against the hero, and it's this character that makes me say this book, is NOT for even the young teens, I'd say anyone under about 18 should leave this book alone despite being fantasy. Maybe some 20-somethings shouldn't pick it up either i [...]


    13. This is the second book in the Mage Wars Trilogy and all the beloved characters from the end of the first book were in this second. I enjoyed this book though it didn't quite hold my attention like the first but still a strong storyline and the characters are entertaining.When approached by the mysterious but well known people of the Hailei Tribe who moor one day at the coast of White Gryphon, Scan, Drake and others on the counsel have to decide whether to form an alliance or be prepared for a w [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this book and again, I loved the interaction with the characters. The Haleigh were an interesting culture, but something just felt reallyuncomfortable. The pale white people come in and make everything all better after fighting against intrigue and prejudice. I dunno didn't sit well with me at all. I understand the reaction of the characters to the new culture, but it was so strong that there was this distinct impression of that dark skinned culture being "wrong" and "illogical" [...]


    15. Skandranon is the lead gryphon in a group of humans and non-humans who have escaped the destruction of their homeland during the Mage Wars. Skandranon had died his original white plumage with black feather dye during the war (see The Black Gryphon) so he could fly at night unseen. When he fled the war's destruction using a magic "gate" his dye was dissolved and he became known as the White Gryphon. Ten years later and he is living with his friends in a new city on the coast of the western sea--n [...]


    16. The White Gryphon is a wonderful addition to the Valdemar Universe. This book didn't have any real fighting or great foe but that didn't mean it wasn't engaging. I liked the look into a different society completely foreign to the world known thus far in this universe. I enjoyed the idea of a society set against change and highly caste based. In the caste ranking, it definitely reminded me of the caste systems and standards in India.Another aspect I found enlightening was the spin on imperialism [...]


    17. Lackey is one of my favorite authors ever! I started reading her in 8th grade but I will still pull out her books to reread them. Her character building is really her main strength – you want to meet her characters – which is probably why I always reach for her books as a pick-me-up, it’s like talking to old friends. Again, a prequel to her Herald series (and we're talking ancient history here). This series has to do with the recovery of a devastated world and devastated people after the C [...]


    18. This is the second novel in Lackey's Gryphon series, so if you haven't you should read The Black Gryphon first--if you enjoyed that story I think you'll like this one: I like this second novel more than the first in fact. I thought this novel was better paced and more suspenseful, and I liked the setting, reminiscent of an ancient African civilization such as Mali, but with elements that make the culture pretty unique, and thus different than the usual pseudo-Medieval European setting you usuall [...]


    19. If possible, better than the first! I was hesitant to read this, especially after reading the blurb. I feared that it would be one of those horrible books in which the protagonist is framed, then finds himself boxed in at every oppotunity. However, this is not the case. The rich culture of the Black King's court is intoxicating, as is the exploration of the changed relationships between the primary characters; and the pseudo-introduction of their children. As the events begin to unfold, our hero [...]


    20. I enjoyed this book much more than the first one. I felt that there was less jumping on ahead with little explanation and more focus on the plot at hand.I really loved Hadanelith, crazy evil guy is something rarely done right, but he was done pretty good. Something that bugged me a bit though was one person would be mulling something over and by some pure magic the person they are with would say what the other was thinking, often in exactly the same words. This was usually followed up with somet [...]


    21. This second book in the Mage Wars trilogy is a lovely addition to both the trilogy and the world of Valdemar.Ten years after the end of the war between Urtho and Ma'ar the survivours of the 5th army have found a place to build their settlement. They are building a city in a cliff and it is a thing of beauty but also a place of defence. Then they are visited by a ship and they find out they are trespassing on the lands of a king and he isn't happy they are there. Will they citizens of White Gryph [...]


    22. Skandranon Rashkae is leader of the White Gryphon settlement. Skan and his mate, Zhaneel have twin gryphlets. Amberdrake and his lifebonded, Winterhart have a two year old daughter named Windsong. White Gryphon is a peaceful place with few crimes to be punished. A strange ship is found in the bay below White Gryphon. The men have black skin can only be the Black Kings or Haighlei Empire. The Black Kings claim that the people of White Gryphon are trespassers to this land. White Gryphon send envoy [...]


    23. The creepiest part of this book often finds it's way into my mind again: the odd man who bound his captives with such strong psychological bounds, that the small bits of string that he wound across their limbs held them in place more securely than any chains would have. The rest of the book was good too! Just that scene has really stayed with me. (I like how he was taken down at the end too, though!)I love the Haighlei, as odd as they are. Their culture is so different from the rest of the peopl [...]


    24. I read the Valdemar series as a pre-teen, and I've been revisiting it in chronological order as part of a huge "reread my fav childhood fantasy/scifi series" project. I've touched on a few other Lackey series lately (it is HARD to find her stuff online!) that were published after I hit puberty (and thus abandoned fantasy as a genre), so I know she's a fantastic writer But man! Some of this earlier stuff is. painful. I made it halfway through The White Gryphon before admitting that, really, who a [...]


    25. i was excited for the Gryphon books, to get all that backstory of Velgarth and how things fell out the way they did, magic and kingdom wise. Black Gryphon started well, and gave us some good details.White Gryphon though, this is where for me Misty's writing really started trending downward. She spends a lot of time in a lot of heads, and therefore ends up telling the same story from several points of view, down to the same exact scene from several POVs. That gets old, fast. And honestly, it didn [...]


    26. I like it. Even if it felt more like that I'm reading a murder mystery than a fantasy book, I still like it.I wish we had more infos about the ten years between the last book and and this one. I want to know about the travel and building the city while being affected by the Mage Storms. :/I like reading about these characters again and I love Skan and his thoughts and sarkasm. ♥I also like meeting other people in this world and seeing a bit more about this world. The culuture of this kingdom w [...]
