That could work. I'd have to read book one first, of course. I was also thinking about going old school with some Mercedes Lackey, The Black Gryphon (Valdemar Mage Wars, #1) by Mercedes Lackey .


message 10: by Bill (new)

Bill | 2144 comments Nice. I really liked her Arrows trilogy and have been meaning to jump back into the Valdemar world so could be a good fit for me too.
