Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
The book I am spotlighting today is Changes by Mercedes Lackey. This is the third book in her Collegium Chronicles which is set in the early days of Valdemar.
Here is the product description:
In Mercedes Lackey's classic coming-of-age story, the orphan Magpie pursues his quest for his parent's identity with burning urgency-while also discovering another hidden talent and being trained by the King's Own Herald as an undercover agent for Valdemar. Shy Bardic Trainee Lena has to face her famous but uncaring father, one of Valdemar's most renowned Bards. And Healing Trainee Bear must struggle against his disapproving parents, who are pressuring Bear to quit the Healers' Collegium because he lacks the magical Healing Gift.I have enjoyed the first two books of this series and expect to like this one too.
Each of the three friends must face his or her demons and find their true strength as they seek to become the full Heralds, Bards, and Healers of Valdemar.
