I am convinced this trilogy could be condensed down to one book or even a novella. I’m not even sure that book would be better, since I still find nearly everything about this plot uninteresting, but at least it would make for a shorter, tighter read.

As Storm Breaking opens, the western allies, led by Karal, Karsite Sunpriest and delegate to the Valdemaran Court, and the Adepts Firesong and An'desha, have traveled deep into the Dorisha Plains to locate the ancient ruins of the Tower of Urtho, Mage of Silence, creator of the gryphons. Legend has it that below the Tower, deeply buried beneath the plains, is Urtho's Vault, hidden stronghold of some of the most powerful magical weapons ever devised - weapons that Urtho himself felt were too dangerous to use.

The Shin'a'in who tended him seemed particularly concerned that he not take a chill from the clammy stone floor or the snow packs on his head. Either no one in Urtho's contingent of mages happened to be a Channel, or else the Mage of Silence hadn't wanted to risk the life of such a person in the use of this weapon-in either case, it had remained unused with a warning plaque advising against its use. Or else he couldn't get any volunteers. Not that Karal could blame anyone for not volunteering.

I love this series, so I hate to give this such a bad rating, but this is a reflection of the quality of the mp3 recording. The reader is ok, even though he mispronounces some words, in a way that could be rectified by simply looking them up in a dictionary - for example, "duchy," even though referring to the property of a duke, is NOT pronounced "ducky" (like a rubber ducky), it is "dutch-y." While somewhat annoying, however, the main problem is not the mispronunciation. Very unfortunately, the recording ends about 6 or 7 pages from the end of the book (at least, according to my very old paperback copy of the book) - it is VERY clearly NOT the end of the story!!! I originally thought I had received a defective disc, so called and asked for a replacement. The customer service representative I spoke with was helpful, and got the replacement out to me within two business days. Imagine my disappointment and displeasure upon discovering that the replacement has the exact same defect! ????I can only assume that the master recording from which they make the copies is defective.I hope it is not that they were so careless while doing the recording that they just did not finish, but based on comments I have seen in how bad the kindle versions of some books are, who knows, especially if they used a bad kindle version for the reader instead of the actual book. Very, very disappointed - I will be returning all three audio books in this series, as it is basically all one story, and the mp3 totally screws up the ending. Very poorly done.

Mercedes Lackey's Mage Storms series is one of my favorites, and this book brings it to a satisfying conclusion with both a solid plot and continued development of characters who have become old friends in the previous books. The inclusion of Baron Melles as a major figure is a particularly interesting twist, bringing Imperial culture to life through the eyes of a complex yet understandable villain, and his unwitting role in preventing worldwide disaster adds another layer to the conclusion. The only real complaint I have is with the e-book formatting, which frankly is rather sloppy. As I am familiar with the hard copy edition, I don't have any trouble following the story regardless, but someone without that background might find it more difficult as italics and sometimes punctuation aren't always where they should be to give the author's intended meaning.

I''ve been reading Mercedes Lackey's books for years, amd generally she is an outstanding author, but occasionally when it comes to a series, she gets into a formulaic rut, particularly on her Velgarath world/Valdemar novels. This particular series felt like it was a bit rushed in spots and drawn out in others, and that there was more that Misty could have covered in this particular series. It seems she tries her best to keep the majority of her books in the <400 page range when most of us wouldn't mind extra reading to get more details, more history on the lands and people. This series in particular gave us a chance to find out more about Iftel, and what the Karsite religion was like before it was corrupted by false prophets and it only touched on this lightly. I would have liked to have seen a closer relationship beween Karal and Alberich, not on a teacher/student basis, but two outsiders from Karse who were taught about the evils of Valdemar and found out things were the very opposite of what they were taught. This book was good light reading, but I believe that so much more could have been included and it would hae been equally as engaging.

Edit: I noticed that the 3 storm novels were marked as "new" in my library and took a look. The horrific and prolific spelling errors have been corrected for the most part. The gryphonic "accented" text in particular is now rendered as in the original hard copy versions. Hooray for proof reading!

I own all the novels in paper form and have been re-purchasing for my kindle library. All of winds and storm are painful to read. The OCR is bad, and clearly there was no proofreading done afterwards. Nearly every page has a spelling error or three that your brain will auto-correct for the most part (aberration becomes abenation, for example) but in some places it is nearly untranslatable. This is particularly frequent in passages with gryphon speech. Lackey had added in extra letters to evoke the gryphonic accent in the original text; the OCR program has conniptions trying to convert it.
