What is yalls take on mercedes lackey?
I used to love her books, but eventually it felt like reading the same book over and over again.
Exactly how I felt.
I started reading crown of vengeance… it is a slow read. The names are all similar and extremely hard to pronounce or differentiate. Its holding my attention but its hard to keep everything in order
I like Lackey very much and had the same issue with this book. I think James Mallory heavily contributed.
I really like her Valdemar but I’d read a three book series then read something else
Valdemar is great. The diana tregarde books are my favourite. Sacred ground was amazing. Her books with James Mallory are awful I found for myself as are her elemental masters books. Her ones with andre Norton were passable. Her 500 kingdoms were easily read but not the best adaptations of fairy tales
I read them when I was a young teen. I enjoyed them then, not so much now as an adult.
I have a special place in my heart for Mercedes Lackey. As a young teen, I picked up The Black Gryphon from the library and it was the first adult fantasy novel I remember ever reading, and probably one of the main reasons my love of fantasy continues. Looking back and re-reading some of her stuff, I’m certainly glad I discovered other authors, but I still enjoy reading something of hers from time to time.
