Review of "Closer to the Chest" (Herald Spy, #3) Mercedes Lackey
Closer to the Chest - Mercedes Lackey

Start to finish, this one stayed true to protagonist Mags and the Valdemar universe.

 

A solid storyline -- unlike parts of previous books that had a kajillion raised and dropped plot points, deluge of new characters taking away from our main ones, main characters acting out of character, ...

 

Another page-turner read for me.  The villainy that reared up in this one hardly as world-ending dire -- new sect encouraging misogyny and one misigynistic criminal -- and not that believable for Valdemar lost it a bit for me (I'm on the fence if "well done, hear, hear, pass the ammunition" or cheap plot point given the makeup of author's fanbase — possibly even response to objections by fans on how out-of-characteristically some women were treated/used in last volumes).

 

Not sure if this completes Mag's books or not.

Closer to the Chest - Mercedes Lackey

And I've slipped comfortably back into the world of Valdemar with Mags and Amily.

 

I'm sure the shit will be hitting the fan soon — always around the corner with Mags.

Oh dear ... where is this one headed?  (Third in series and first two were kinda mixed for me).  I mean this is written by a girl (Mercedes Lackey) in her Valdemar universe where many of the Herald Leaders are female:

Never Game a Gamer
Never Trust a Pirate (Playful Brides) - Valerie Bowman

This is a definite win in a consistently good series. Valerie Bowman writes so charmingly, and I love that the heroine is as roguish as the hero. I like the surprises along the way and Danielle is probably going on my favorite heroines list, not because we share the name. But because she's awesome. I picture Eva Green as Danielle.

Overall rating: 4.5/5.0 stars.
