Burning Brightly is the legendary story of Herald Lavan Firestorm. Put that simply, not too many people would look twice at a book that seems to boast about its tale. However, I have news for you, fantasy lovers. If you have read ANY of Mercedes Lackey's Herald stories and enjoyed them, Burning Brightly will leave them all behind. Lavan Chitward, the main character, is as intriguing as they come. He's the sort that every girl would fall in love with over and over and that includes me! I wouldn't want to spoil it for anybody who hasn't read it so I won't give away the plot. All I can say is that Lan is a powerful character with a powerful story. Burning Brightly, as a tale, stands out from the rest with a sort of clarity that most authors couldn't hope to achieve. I'd like to congratulate Ms. Lackey for a book that has kept me enthralled four or five times now.
