I am not a fan of Lackey at all. I have rarely enjoyed her books, and am not particularly intrigued by the world of Valdemar.
However, this is a phenomenal trilogy! It was impossible for me to put any of the three down until they were completely, fully and totally consumed.
I bought this trilogy back in 1991, and have re-read it every year or so since. It's a profound love story, full of characters you can almost touch and feel, and definitely sympathise and relate to. Vanyel is a young boy with no latent magical abilities whatsoever, until a niaive sacrifice for his "soul-mate" results in a backwash making him one of the world's most powerful mages, but at a devastating price (and we're not talking just the death of his lover here, folks!).
For those who think this is a gay love story, you cannot be more wrong. Vanyel is an unlikely hero who just happens to be homosexual, and the casual way Lackey handles his sexual preference should be inspirational to anyone, straight or gay. Actually, the fact that Vanyel's homosexuality is such a very small and very private part of his life when compared to his other attributes and his duties leads me to think perhaps the gay community has more to learn from his example than any other segment. He's not out to prove anything, or to impress or shock anyone. He simply wants to be accepted, himself alone, and to be allowed to pursue happiness in his own private way.
There are some inconsistencies throughout the series, but one won't notice them unless you are particularly observant and/or frequently re-read the trilogy (which you probably will).
All in all, very high in my list of fantasy favorites.

I acquired Mercedes Lackey's "Last Herald-Mage" trilogy on a hunch several years ago. To this day I am grateful that I followed intuition as I've rarely read such a sad, but beautiful story. I was sceptical about other readers recommending having loads of tissues ready but never has anything been more true. Mercedes Lackey tells the story of Herald-Mage Vanyel Ashkevron with a skill and beauty, it's a joy to read. Her words paint the world of Herald-Mages with such an intense emotion, I was hardly able to stop reading to get something to read. There are authors describing a tragic event and I as the reader follow said tragic event intentently but do not get emotionally involved. Then there is Mercedes Lackey. While I was well within book 2 of the series, I was still breaking into tears every time I thought about the tragic happenings in the first novel. This speaks highly of the author's skill to capture her audience. Bravo!

"The Last Herald-Mage" follows the life of Vanyel Ashkevron over the course of approx. 20 years. "Magic's Promise" takes place 10 years after the first novel. Vanyel with his beloved companion Yfandes has become the most powerful Herald-Mage in Valdemar. Not much reminds of the insecure boy of ten years ago who was hiding behind arrogance and disdain to protect himself. On the one hand he has grown much stronger. Everyone in Valdemar will recognise the powerful Herald-Mage with the strange silver eyes and white locks in his otherwise raven hair. On the other hand the scars from events back in book 1 still have not healed over. Scabs are likely to break open at any time and they will when he meets Tashir while scouting Valdemar's borders. Tashir who looks hauntingly like his lost bond-mate Tylendel.

Mecedes Lackey has got to be the all-time champ at story weaving. Through all three books in this series the one thing that always wins is Love. No matter how much Vanyel suffers he finds the strength to continue because someone loves him. I haven't been gripped by a book like this in a very long time.
Ms Lackey has also managed to slip in practicallity in her fantasy. Magic use has consequences, both good and bad, depending on how it's used and IF you're paying attention. This really helps the book come alive because it makes sense!
I highly recommend this book and the others in the series to anyone who wishes to be totally immersed by a story and it's characters.

Heros always win. That is one rule that will never change. Every has noticed that, but has any one ever notice the price that hero pays (when he returns home alive). I never did until I start to read The Last Herald Mage Triolgy. Vanyel pays the price of being a hero by watching people he cares for grow farther away, out of neccessity. That is a price I would hate to pay. You see heroism from another point of view in the Last Herald Mage triolgy, the point of view of a hero not some perfect happy ending storybook hero the kind you grow up with, but the kind that puts his life on the line because he has to who doesn't get there in a nick of time every time, who sometimes is to late and sometimes early enough and sometimes in a nick of time. Vanyel is a person not a story book hero. He loses the love of his life, best friends and sometimes all he can do is get revenge for those deaths. He gets all kinds of nicknames, nicknames he usually doesn't like. People he has known for years fear him because he is so strong. He dislikes that and it hurts him because he is human and not a story book hero. He endures all of this and comes out on top, even though he may want to quit, simply because he feels he has a duty to people to use his power to help others and protect them. He is like a storybook hero in that aspect. He doesn't always have a happy ending or any other story book norm. but he always does what is needed even if it goes beyond he duty as a Herald but that is what Vanyel does. Go beyond what needs to be done or what can be done and pull a mircle out of thin air to save people and to protect people because that is Vanyel. Somewhere he manages to fit in a life and happiness and other storybook things
