“I have only one complaint about the book- that it stops! I could have kept reading for a thousand pages.”

— Netgalley reviewer

“There are many, many call backs to every other trilogy set in Valdemar and the surrounding lands. . . Mercedes Lackey had created a world rich in detail, magic, and characters you will want to love and hate.”

— Netgalley reviewer

Gryphon in Light by Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon is a delightful return to a much loved fantasy world.”

— Netgalley reviewer

“I am thrilled to return to the world that is Valdemar! As always Mercedes Lackey and Larry Dixon bring their signature excellent world-building, magic, wonders and fantastic characters, both human and not, to us in this volume.”

— Netgalley reviewer

“This is a satisfying read full of magic, wonders and fantastic characters both human and not. Understandably Gryphon in Light does end in a bit of a cliffhanger, since it is a quest trilogy, but it didn't dampen my enjoyment at all. ”

— Netgalley reviewer

Set in the beloved and New York Times bestselling world of Valdemar, this 1st book in a new trilogy returns to the tales of the majestic gryphons.

On the border between Valdemar and the deadly Pelagirs Forest, the gryphon hero Kelvren returns from a near-fatal self-sacrifice that won him the approval of Valdemar's ground troops, but caused a diplomatic crisis.  Frustrated by his lack of a hero's welcome, Kelvren is talked into helping with an expedition by his old friend, Firesong.

Firesong struggles with his own age and mortality, and he intends to solve a vast mystery at the center of legendary Lake Evendim as his crowning achievement. Just getting the multicultural fleet underway is a challenge, but what awaits them is a situation none of them could expect.

Set in the beloved fantasy realm of Valdemar, Gryphon in Light is adventurous epic fantasy at its best.

Praise for Gryphon in Light

"Readers who discovered or rediscovered Valdemar in Lackey’s recent Beyond will find enough links to the events of that origin story to see this later Valdemar as a new but still beloved place, as will regular readers of the series." —Library Journal

Praise for Valdemar

"The high stakes and the dangerous journey keep the story moving at a brisk pace. Lackey’s characters, meanwhile, are admirable as ever as they learn to work together. Series fans will not be disappointed." —Publishers Weekly

"Eye Spy feels like a present written especially for me. You're gonna want to read it. This one's a firecracker." —

"Whether it's the spellbinding world, the intrigue of the plot, or the simple yet remarkable narrative style—it is impossible to say which of these makes the story so good, but one thing is for sure: Closer to Home marks the beginning of another fantastic Lackey series." —RT Reviews

"Mags remains an engaging character, and makes a very capable spy/investigator.... His adventures still make engrossing reading." —Locus

"Returning to her beloved Valdemar universe, Lackey opens her new series at a pivotal time in the history of Valdemar.... Series fans will enjoy the variations on a familiar theme, while enough information is presented for first-timers to discover a world of high adventure and individual courage. Highly recommended." —Library Journal

"Closer to the Heart has the two things that have always made me love these books: a richly detailed history of the world, and beautiful writing." —The Arched Doorway

"Lackey is a master at characterization." —The Ranting Dragon
