Valorian by Mary H Herbert



Mary H Herbert has done an AMAZING job in this book and the series as a whole Once you read Valorian, i'm certain you'd want to purchase the whole series right away. A very enjoyable reading that will take you on a journey to a different realm and will keep you eager to know how everything will unfold. The book was as described, if not better. I bought this one because I love the art on it. I had already read the series when I was younger, so all that was left to do was to collect them.

Overall, Mary H. Herbert is a fantastic story teller, and I recommend this book to anyone looking for a world filled with elements that goes beyond the imagination. Jul 25, 2011 Vikki rated it it was amazing.

This book is a gem. I read many books when I was in middle school, and the Dark Horse Clan books are some of the few I actually remember. Wicked series! if this is the only one you have heard of, check out Dark Horse, Lightening's Daughter and City of Sorcerors also done by Mary Herbert.

Lady Gabria rose with the rest of the crowded clanspeople and watched with shining pride as six young warriors entered in single file through the huge double doors of the chieftain’s hall. It wasn’t until Lord Medb of Clan Wylfling found an ancient book of sorcery and tried to conquer the twelve clans of Valorian that the clanspeople began to realize that they had been mistaken to turn their backs on magic. Only she, Gabria, had dared oppose Lord Medb’s evil sorcery with magic of her own.

Only one man, Valorian, has the vision to dream of freedom and a new life for the Clan. Few are willing to listen. It is not until he receives a gift from the goddess Amara that he is able to begin his quest. If Valorian can unite his people and escape from the ruthless General Tyrranis, he could find a new destiny for the Clan. But if he fails, the clanspeople will face certain death.

Valorian is the first novel in the Dark Horse series, a prequel to the other volumes. "Five hundred years before before the time of Gabria, the mage-heroine of [the other novels], the last remnants of the once great Clans struggle to survive in the barren foothills west of the Darkhorn Mountains." They need to cross the mountains to the vast Ramtharin Plains, but the high peaks and Tarnish Empire hold them back in the Bloodiron Hills.
In this novel, the hunter Valorian has shared meat with a group of Tarnish legionnaires and overheard talk of the legion pulling back to Tarnov, leaving the Ramtharin Plains unoccupied. Also, he heard mention of a Wolfeared Pass in the mountains which is large enough for supply wagons. He begins searching for the pass, but has had no luck for three days. He has wandered up through the foothills onto a ridge crest, but rain shrouds the peaks and drives him to shelter. When the rain blows through, Valorian returns to the crest and calls upon the gods to show him a way to save his people. A bolt of pure power arcs down through his sword and helmet, his body, and his horse to the rocky ground. They are both dead before they know it.
Valorian finds himself in a vast, unutterable silence. He is standing over his own body, and that of his horse, smoke arising from the corpses. However, he is not alone, for Hunnel, his stallion, is also there in spirit, if not quite in body. The land around them is slowly fading away. The two are facing down the Harbringers, the escorts of the dead, when the goddess Amara intervenes to save them.
It seems that some gorthlings have stolen her crown, her brother Sorh thinks her requests for help are a game, and she has no power over her brother's creatures. She asks Valorian and Hunnel to retrieve the crown and gives him the power of magic to use in the quest. She then returns him to the Habringers for escort to the realm of the dead.
When Valorian returns from that realm, he is dirty, tired and has a pounding headache. Moreover, Hunnel has a wound like a brand mark on his side shaped like a lightning bolt. Wondering about his dreams, he mounts Hunnel and goes home. However, he soon learns that he can use magic just as in the dream. Was it a dream or not?
This novel is the backstory of the migration of the clans to the Plains and the occurance of magic users among them. Valorian has other tasks ahead of him, including giving Hunnel the power to mindspeak, before his time is past, but he and his people will now be accompanied by the Dark Horses, Hunnel's descendents.
Recommended for Herbert fans and anyone else who enjoys a good fantasy story about riders of the plains.

The story itself is an interesting one, and Herbert sets it up well. But her writing is weak and clunky. She's all about telling, not showing, and randomly jumps to other POVs (of minor characters) for a single paragraph to show they believe/disbelieve in Valorian, rather than letting their actions show it.

Frankly the fact that the hero is named Valorian and the evildoer Tyrannis should be enough to clue you in that Herbert's writing is anything but subtle.
KiddenDan
she teaches the history of her characters and makes the past come alive as the prelude shows, she makes her hero act unsure and human, and her villin is pure evil. The ending is climatic and suspened.
This book is a gem. I read many books when I was in middle school, and the Dark Horse Clan books are some of the few I actually remember. I suggest you read at least one of these books, and I hpe you can get your hands on them. Try your Local library.
