Rated 4 out of 5 by from worth a look Heroes At Risk is the fourth installment of Taro and Lee's adventures as Sword and Shield. They've returned to High Scape after their last adventure to find that things have calmed down. In fact, it seems that the general population no longer needs the Pairs and have turned to "magic" instead with the ashes of 'lucky' people being used to cast spells. As a complicating factor, Lee and Taro have moved their relationship to the next level and must also deal with the reactions of the other pairs present in High Scape. I've liked every book in this series so far. The writing style is light hearted and the stormy interactions between Lee and Taro are always entertaining. The book also includes developing plot lines for the next book along with an implication that both Taro and Lee are developing unique talents as Sword and Shield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait With the fourth installment of the underrated Heroes series, Moore finally delves into the nitty-gritty of things, including lots of unanswered things from previous books. We finally get some answers about "magic", amidst wonderful dialogue, fantastic perspective, and wonderful character development. I was so pleased with this one that I eagerly await the next novel in the series (cliffhangers urgh!). Impressive, addictive, and fast-paced, Heroes At Risk is probably the best one yet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great, but not graveyard book pile either. I believe this is the third book in the heroes series. It follows Shield Lee Mallorough and her Source Shintaro Karish. They've just returned to their home city after completing a mission for the empress. Home isn't what it used to be. While they where gone, the practice of spellcrafting has bloomed in the city. I thought, and still think, that it is odd that the author has started to introduce a second magical system so late in the series. She's barely scratched the surface of her current magical system. Anyways this story had fairly little major conflict. It was pretty much just a vehicle to indulge in the romance between the two main characters. You could probably skip it and read the next book in the series and still keep up with the story. This book is a bargain bin, or a library, book.
