    Summary

    War is coming to Valdemar. Herald-Mage Vanyel sees a vision of his future, a destiny that apparently only he can fulfill. He expects to die for his Kingdom, in ten or twenty years, fighting a mysterious dark mage in the north. In the meantime, all he can do is try to put his life back together, learn to be a Herald, and prepare for what's coming, with the support of his aunt Savil and the community of Heralds.

    However, it turns out that the future is a lot more complicated than he expected.

    Covers the next few years post-Magic's Pawn. Part three of "A Song for Two Voices" AU.

    Summary

    This is a rationalfic take on "The Last Herald-Mage", inspired by HPMOR and other works. Accessible regardless of whether you've read the original series. Though far from perfect, the characters are trying to do their best with the information, intelligence, and skills they have. Unfortunately, their enemies are also doing that, and sometimes even reasonable decisions can turn out badly.

    [Meta note: this starts out a bit slow, and book 1 is kind of a different genre from the rest. In particular, the rationalist content is fairly subtle at the start, and the effective altruism themes come out a lot more towards the end of book 2 and early book 3. If you’re moderately enjoying book 1 but a little bored, try sticking it out until the end of book 2.]

    Ashamed of him, Vanyel's father sends his disappointing son to live with his strict aunt, the Herald-Mage Savil. Although he knows things will change, Vanyel dramatically underestimates just how different his life is about to become. Sparks fly as he discovers both love and magic.

    Summary

    Herald Esmelle has uncovered disturbing news while on circuit. Rethwellan is encroaching on Valdemaran lands. Back in Haven, it's only a matter of time before she's sent out to deal with the problem on the border—up the mountains in the middle of winter! And, unfortunately for Esmelle, she's getting partnered up with a Herald-Mage holding a grudge against her: Herald-Mage Savil Ashkevron. And that's not to mention Savil's complete lack of skill at negotiating.
