THE VALDEMAR COMPANION is exactly what the title says it
is, a complete reference book for fans of the series not
different than many other similar tomes. It contains a
glossary of names and places important to the Valdemar
world as well as a synopsis of each book. Besides the
standard articles on culture and people, this book also
includes the unique element of a well-written novella by
Mercedes Lackey, author of the eighteen Valdemar novels.
Though clearly for the Valdemar mythos audience, fantasy
readers in general will enjoy this companion volume.
