|Winds of Fury (The Mage Winds, Book 3)|
Date: 1994-08-01 — Book
Elspeth returns home in triumph as a mage, resigns as Heir, then goes off in a dangerous quest to Hardorn to depose Ancar (who is abusing his people and his land) and, incidentally, his ally Mornelithe Falconsbane, who has cheated death, yet again. Yadda yadda yadda. Actually, this book is more streamlined than its predecessors, and once they get to Hardorn the pace picks up admirably. I'm still left with the conclusion that Lackey had to force herself to write these books because there wasn't any other way to get to the next ones. They just don't flow like some of her other works do.
