The Gryphon
Back to Valdemar....

I'm waiting for my local Library to get another DVD copy of "Dances With Wolves" so I can compare the movie to the book. Book was GREAT. I remember watching the movie years ago when it first came out in the Theaters. I wish to watch it again.

In the meantime, I'm going back to re-read many of Mercedes Lackey's books about the Heralds (and their horse-like Companions), Mages, and Healers with Magic in the land of Valdemar.

I started with the Mage Wars Trilogy ("The Black Gryphon", "The White Gryphon", and "The Silver Gryphon") since I own those three books. Then on to "Owlsight", "Owlflight", and "Owlknight" about the Hawkbrothers who also wield Magic along with their Bond Birds (and a handy Gryphon or two....)

The Colloquium series is about the Foundation of the Schools for the Mages, Bards, and Healers of Valdemar and takes place generations after The Mage Wars. More Companions (those white skinned, blue eyed, silver hoofed mind-speaking "horses"), fewer Gryphons, but still fascinating and excellent escapism!

This whole series of books should keep me quite busy for a while.....
