Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar Series

March 18th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books

I love the Valdemar books and I’ve read most of them at least a dozen times.  Since most of them were before I started blogging I wanted to list them and mention which ones were my favorites.  They are listed in the order they take place in history.

Mage Wars-Skandragon’s story (My least favorite, would leave this one to last)

Black Gryphon, White Gryphon, Silver Gryphon

    Well, I really appreciate this post! I have been planning to start this series forever! Now, I think I am going to go see what books I have and don’t have. :)
