More Valdemar

I finished up Moving Targets and Other Tales of Valdemar, edited by Mercedes Lackey and can't exactly recommend it. a few stories are good; I liked "Live On" by Tanya Huff which is about a very old Herald and a very young Herald. "What Fire Is" by Janni Lee Simner is another good one; it is about Karse and what the priests do to those children who are magically gifted. I also really liked "The Sworddancer" by Michael Z. Williamson but it isn't really a Valdemar story. A Herald pops up once or twice but it is mainly a story about a young warrior woman fighting for her family and her town. Overall the book is a 4 but probably for completists only.
