Teaser Tuesday: Changes by Mercedes Lackey

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Today my nearest book is Changes by Mercedes Lackey. I have been reading her Valdemar books for years and am enjoying this series about when Valdemar was new and the collegia that trained the bards, healers and heralds were just being established. This is the third volume in this series about three young people. Mags is a herald-trainee, Bear is a healer-trainee, and Lena is a bard-trainee. Each has to grow up and find their place in the world. It is a classic coming-of-age story.

Fine, call her eyes "pretty." or "soulful," or "entrancing"--those all made sense. But "melting?" Mags didn't see how you could call eyes "melting"; if her eyes were doing that, it would be hideously painful for her, and rather nasty to watch. 


  1. Oh I love these books! I've only read the first one in the Collegium Chronicles, but I'll be getting my hands on the second as soon as I fix my money issues - my partner keeps telling me that books come second to food and electric but I'm not so sure...

    Anyway, enjoy your reading :)

  2. Interesting! Haven't read from this author, but the teaser does spark some interest!

  3. Great teaser. I read a book recently where the girls green eyes were referred to as milky. I didn't get it milky green?

  4. LOL...fun teaser. Sounds like an interesting series! Mine: Wicked
