Book 3 Synopsis: Magic’s Price is the conclusion that has been hinted at since the beginning. Love comes back to Van in the form of a bard-in-training, even as Valdemar is threatened by its long time enemies and a new enemy from the north, where lands are not charted and none know what lies there. Will Van finally be able to have a peaceful life? Or will the Last Herald-Mage fall?
Book 3 Review: Magic’s Price is the most dramatic ending that I have read from Mercedes Lackey as of this day. Van finds his true love again as they had been reborn. Van’s death is so sad that I cried and when his new lifebonded tries to commit suicide makes me eager to read the prologue. Lackey achieved the highest point of Catharsis possible for a fantasy writer with the way that this story is put together and completed. It is the perfect, dramatic, bittersweet ending for an amazing series.
