THE NOVELS OF VALDEMAR
He was once a captain in the army of Karse, a
kingdom that had been at war with Valdemar
for decades. But when Alberich took a stand
for what he believed in—and was betrayed—
he was chosen by a Companion to serve the
throne of Valdemar.
“This new offering sheds light on yet another
facet of the extensive history and culture of
the literary gem that is Valdemar—one of the
most fully realized realms in all of fantasy.
Exile’s Valor is classic Mercedes—
top-of-the-line fantasy.”—Paul Goat Allen, Barnes&

“Lackey fans will revel in the book.”—VOYA.
“Lackey continues her popular Valdemar
series with the story of Alberich, Weapons-master and Queen’s Champion of a land he
was taught to fear and hate, as he struggles to
redefine the meaning of the honor he holds so
dear while learning to accept the magic he
once tried to conceal.”—Library Journal.
