But his past is still a mystery. Still things are going well for Mags when he is hit over the head and kidnapped. Head blind and unable to call for help not even Dallen Mags is on his own in a mystery that may finally give some clue as to where he came from and who his parents were.
I LOVE Mercedes Lackey! She writes a world like no other. Vivid and real you can’t help but fall in love with her characters. What I loved most about this book is that while Mags is bemoaning to himself the loss of the things that he feels make him special he is doing extraordinary things to survive. Another wonderful story from Mercedes Lackey.
