The Valdemar Reading Challenge 2017 - My Participation Post

2017 has begun, as of today, so that marks the opening day of the Valdemar Reading Challenge!

Here is where I'm going to be listing and linking my participating reads through the year, and I've already planned out my first choice: Tempest: All New Tales of Valdemar.

The rules of the challenge are as follows;

I'm challenging people to have a go at one of my long-time favorite authors and worlds of books: Mercedes Lackey's world of Valdemar. It's one of my go-to worlds, with plenty of reading material and characters.

If you're a fan of fantasy and haven't given any of these books a try, 2017 is the year to do it! Magic - of varying flavors and styles, horses, and books that are great for everyone from young readers (some of them, anyway) on through to those young at heart. If you already know and love the series, this is the year for that big re-read!

There are several good entry-points to this series now, ranging from the Heralds of Valdemar trilogy (Arrows of the Queen, Arrow's Flight and Arrow's Fall) to the Collegium Chronicles, which starts with Foundation.

The Rules of the Challenge:
  1. Level One: 3-6 books.
  2. Level Two: 6-12 books.
  3. Level Three: All of the Valdemar books.
  4. Level Four: All of the Valdemar books, plus any two of the Valdemar anthologies.
  5. Bonus books: Any other Mercedes Lackey titles from her other series, including the Elemental Masters, Diana Tregarde, Five Hundred Kingdoms etc.
  6. Any reads for this challenge do count towards any other challenges you are participating in.
  7. To join up, just leave a comment here signing up, and, should you choose, comment with the links to your reviews of the books you've read.
  8. This is the most important rule of them all: Have fun!
My participating reads:
  1. Owlflight
  2. Four and Twenty Blackbirds (Bonus read)
  3. Owlsight
  4. The Ship Who Searched (Bonus Read)
  5. Arrows of the Queen
  6. Arrow's Flight
