On T’s recommendation, and my desire to read more by Mercedes Lackey (and Larry Dixon), I recently read The Mage Wars Trilogy consisting of The Black Gryphon, The White Gryphon, and The Silver Gryphon.
Overall I really enjoyed this series and must say that after completing Silver, I think that Silver is a “stand alone” continuation and that Black and White are a tighter more cohesive story. Silver has it’s good points, but I could definitely see myself rereading the first two and just skipping this one. However, I do see those who might get more out of the third.
I’m now infatuated enough to want to read Magic’s Pawn very soon. But first I hope to knock off a few others from my reading list.
