Intrigue À Self comes under suspicion Who are Magpie's parents who is he really? Can Mags solve the riddle of his parentage and his connection with the mysterious spies and prove his loyalty before the king and court banish him as a traitor I like itI like Mags and especially Dallen a lotI like the day to day descriptions of living in the newly founded Collegium and the training and playing of KirballI love that Mags can just meet the King while the King slips into the Companion stable to bring his Companion a pocket pieI like the overall plot with the assassin and what Mags has to go through after the visions of the Foreseer because it led to friendship and loyalty between the teamThe accident? OMG My heart broke for Mags and I'm sad and angry about what his friends did thenMags following Temper and dropping his shield in order to save the Companions and especially Dallen? OMGI'm still not fond of the written accent of Mags and the others Makes it a bit difficult to read it for meSo yeah I really like it and I'm so curious about the overall plot of these books reader à ↠ Mercedes Lackey
