Redoubt by Mercedes Lacket

Mercedes Lackey takes us once again into the land of Valdemar. Book Four of the Collegium Chronicles visits with Mags and Dallen showing their growth as a team and Mags development as a much more normal teen who has to face the fears of his previous existance. Readers of the series will remember that Mags was once a mine slave that has a very different take on the world of Companions as compared to most Heraldic trainees.

I found this novel to be a bit dark in the middle but it was appropriate darkness that made for page turning tension. Even for one that is Chosen life is not always clear as to right, wrong, or indifferent.

The ending leaves me thinking we may visit with Mags and Dallen again, I hope that is true.
