I am an unabashed Lackey fan because of her beautifully developed characters, down to the lesser ones and the wonderful sardonic or sarcastic dialog of the companions and other critters. Her world building is top notch so you feel as if you were there......and they are enjoyable to the last page. What more can you ask? I am glad she is so prolific. ~~ Pam Allan
