This is a list of books by Mercedes Lackey, arranged by collection. This set consists of the original trilogy, the very first Valdemar books published, and a prequel trilogy.

The Silver Gryphon (Mage Wars) by Mercedes Lackey Mass Market . The White Gryphon picks up several years after the end of The Black Gryphon. The characters are well defined and as usual Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon create a world and characters that you can get lost in.

Only 17 left in stock (more on the way). 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. Well loved and old friends. I read the series at least once a year!

Written with LARRY DIXON: The mage wars. Mage-lights to aid in working deeper into the stone had been at a premium, and there were long stretches of time when magic could not be used to help work the stone at all, so that it. all had to be done by hand. Workers tended to carve to a standard that happened to be preferred by most humans and all gryphons and tervardi.

The moorings there were all empty except for light utility craft, for the fishing fleet of White Gryphon would be out at sea until sunset, Tadrith himself had served with the fleet in his first year as a Silver Gryphon.

The moorings there were all empty except for light utility craft, for the fishing fleet of White Gryphon would be out at sea until sunset, Tadrith himself had served with the fleet in his first year as a Silver Gryphon; young gryphons acted as aerial scouts, spotting schools of fish from above, and then worked as catch haulers later in the day.

The Silver Gryphon is the last book in the Mage Wars trilogy, the first in the epic Valdemar saga. The first book in the series was pure high fantasy, the second less magic and more intrigue, and this one is a tale of survival. It also contains one of my favorite quotes from any book, ever...

“In a calm, clear voice, she suggested that the wyrsa in question could do several highly improbable, athletically difficult and possibly biologically impractical things involving its own mother, a few household implements, and a dead fish.”

A dozen or so years have passed since the end of The White Gryphon. Unlike the first two books, this one does not center solely on Drake and Skan. Instead, this one focuses on Tadrith and Silverblade, the children of Skan and Drake respectively. The two are partners in the Silvers, the pseudo military/law enforcement service of White Gryphon. They have been in training and now it is time for them to go out on their first scouting mission. Their parents are so notorious that both of them are more than willing to leave, to be out from under watchful eyes. But things go badly for them almost from the start and they end up lost and alone, injured and being pursued by forces they have never experienced.

This is more of an action novel than one of magic and mystery. Although I enjoyed the story and I love the two new characters, it just wasn't as much fun to read. Yes, there was a bit of mystery and some great action, but overall I felt like it just didn't move the story forward as much as the others. It was good for character development, except for the fact that this book is the one and only one in the series that discusses these two characters.

My Recommendation: No, this wasn't my favorite in the series, aside from the great quote. But it is still enjoyable for a fan of the Valdemar series.

The third book in this trilogy and a great story. If you're not already a fan of this author, though, you should not try to start with this book: the author assumes you already know *something* about the world of the characters. As the last installment in this particular trilogy it's a satisfying ending.

This is the 3rd book in the Mage Wars Trilogy, it follows The Black Gryphon (book #1) and The White Gryphon (book #2). They are all great books and they take place in the time before Valdemar was founded. If you are one to read a series Chronologically then you'd want to start the Valdemar series with these three books. However, with the Valdemar books you could start with any of the books in the Main series but the first in the "mini"/trilogy series. Some of the trilogies are actually now printed as an omnibus (all three in one book), like the "Last Herald Mage" trilogy (Magic's Pawn, Magic's Price and Magic's Promise) are printed together as "The Last Herald Mage". There are others but the Gryphon series I don't believe is printed as an omnibus as of yet. They are good books to read, but a little slow at times. These books explain about the magic of Valdemar and the different "creatures" and also about why certain areas are the way they are.

I wanted to like it. I really did. But my goodness, that was such a let down. I really enjoyed the first two books of the series. But this one was almost boring. It felt like so much was missing. Almost like we only got half the story. I was looking forward to reading about their destination, not the extended romp in the woods.

I love Ms. Lackey's books. They're almost all great. Just skip this one.

This is the third and final book in the Mage War series, which is the history of what will become Valdemar and it's neighbors. This book is fantastic; the characters and settings are rich, the imagination that it takes to create such a unique world very much evident. This is my third copy of the book ( I tend to read them until the pages fall out), and I'm sure I will have to pull myself away from the pages once I bury my nose in it

I owned the books before donating them to local library but always have this with me.
I always love Mercedes Lackey and this series is no exception.
Love the Gryphon's

The story in this book is engaging and interesting. It was a new story for me, but still easy to predict the twists and outcomes. If you have read the first two books of the trilogy, this book is a bit of a departure - the protagonists are the children of those in the earlier books. It takes a while for an interest in, and concern for, the characters to develope. This detracts a bit from the opening chapters of the book, but the story is interesting enough to hold attention past that detraction.
Was as described and came in a timely fashion
