Technically, this was spring, but it certainly didn't feel like it. There was a definite bite to the air, and although there was no snow on the ground, the clouds looks as if they were contemplating dropping flakes any moment now.Friday 56:
Since a set of really good lockpicks would probably make Nikolas's eyes light up like candles, Mags nodded.Closer to the Heart by Mercedes Lackey. I have been reading her Valdemar books for years and am always eager to read the newest one. Here is the description from Amazon:
Mags was a Herald of Valdemar. But he had once lived the brutal life of a child slave. When he was Chosen by his Companion Dallen, his young life was saved, and he slowly adjusted to being well fed, educated, and treasured as a trainee in the Herald's Collegium at Haven. Singled out by the King's Own Herald, Mags would thrive in his secret training as a spy. His unusually strong Gift—an ability to Mindspeak and Mindhear anyone, not just others who were Gifted—made him a perfect undercover agent for the king.
Sequel to Mercedes Lackey's Closer to Home, this adventure continues Mags's journey as Valdemar's herald spy.
