Eric Banyon, known as Bedlam's Bard, managed to save his young brother Magnus from what seemed to be a killer demon, but now he must rescue Magnus from their tyrannical parents. Eric does not look forward to the custody battle, but his friend Ria heads a high-powered law firm, and in a pinch he can use bardic magic to fudge a DNA test. But Eric doesn't know that his parent Eric Banyon, known as Bedlam's Bard, managed to save his young brother Magnus from what seemed to be a killer demon, but now he must rescue Magnus from their tyrannical parents. Eric does not look forward to the custody battle, but his friend Ria heads a high-powered law firm, and in a pinch he can use bardic magic to fudge a DNA test. But Eric doesn't know that his parents are allied with evangelist Billy Fairchild, himself a tool of the evil Unseleighe elves. If Magnus and his friend Ace, who is also on the run from her twisted parents, fall into Fairchild's hands, even Eric's bardic magic may not be enough to save them.

    The latest in Lackey's urban fantasy universe. I find that her constant soapboxing makes me roll my eyes, but after the initial very heavy-handed first chapter, the rest was fairly easy to ignore. She can tell a damn good story, despite some fairly serious flaws in her characterization that I'm finding harder and harder to overlook. For the past year or so, I've been picking up Lackey unsure what to expect. I will still read her books but I'm not head over heels for them like I used to be.

For the past year or so, I've been picking up Lackey unsure what to expect. I will still read her books but I'm not head over heels for them like I used to be. Her characters are too black and white, her plotting is a little too convenient, and she constantly hammers her pet issues, which sometimes make her books a little hard to swallow. Still, I've loved this series from the very beginning and it is always nice to revisit old friends.

    This was a brilliant conclusion to the Bard Tales series, and something that, while dotting all the i's, and crossing all the t's, also gave me a roller coaster of a ride along the way. Like all of Misty's books, this had great characters, powerful plotlines, and plenty of moral situations to keep me occupied - and the urge to just keep on reading, no matter what - and, once again, keeping me up until the early hours of the morning (in reality, until 5a.m!)

I'll be sad to see Bard Eric and his friends go - though I do have a book of short stories to read next, all set in the urban fantasy world of the Sidhe - Bedlam's Edge - so I guess it'll be another day or so until I start the next series, written by Misty - the Diana Tregarde books, that I've owned for some time now, but still haven't read! I'm really loving these books!

    This book has an undercurrent of what happens with Christianity and White Supremacy when they combine. It was chilling at times to read, because it called out many of the things that are currently happening in our political world to a scary degree. Excellent read!

    Eric Banyon, also known as Bedlam's Bard, managed to rescue his young brother Magnus from what seemed to be a killer demon (in Mad Maudlin), but now he must rescue Magnus again, this time from their tyrannical parents.

Eric does not look forward to the battle, but is confident he can gain custody. His financial sources are virtually unlimited, his friend Ria Llewellyn heads the most high-powered law firm in New York, and in a pinch he and his friends can use to magic powers, even flummoxing a DNA test, it comes to that. What Eric does not know is that his parents are allied with the evangelist Billy Fairchild, who himself is a tool of the evil Unseleighe elves, who feed off human sorrow and suffering. Fairchild specializes in getting “bad” children to shape up, which is accomplished by letting a soulsucker—malevolent creature from the elf world—drain the victim of all talent, creativity, and will, leaving an obedient zombie husk behind. If Magnus and his friend Ace, who is also on the run from her twisted parents, fall into Fairchild's hands, they will join the Unseleighe's zombie ranks. And even Eric's bardic magic may not be enough to save them.

    This was a re-read of the Bedlams's Bard series. I originally read these books, when they were first published, and devoured them as soon as each was published. Urban fantasy before it was called urban fantasy I remember being entranced and thrilled with the changes and modernization of fantasy. Years, Decades later this series still rings true, it is enjoyable Mercedes Lackey style.

Urban fantasy before it was called urban fantasy I remember being entranced and thrilled with the changes and modernization of fantasy. Years, Decades later this series still rings true, it is enjoyable Mercedes Lackey style. With a bit of magic, hard looks into cultures and places that were not so common in Fantasy books at the time, Just enough disturbing looks into real issues and the plight of runaways and children mixed with the good Vs evil and struggles of not just the humans, but also the magical and Fae in this world. I will say I was again a little disappointed when the world moved from the enchanting world of the Re-Faires to the streets of New York - breaking this into 2 series within one.

    by Mercedes Lackey AND Rosemary Edgehill. This is a stand alone book -- or not. Magnus is a teenaged brat who doesn't learn, Hosea speaks in a dialect that wanders but is refreshing, there are characters who are bound by certain circumstances -- unless it's inconvenient to the plot. Lady Day was fun. All the characters don't do anything remarkable until about p. 144. Then the plot becomes a little complicated and difficult to follow if you haven't read much of Lackey's books.

    An excellent conclusion to the Bedlam's Bard books, giving everyone the satisfaction of a peaceful ending. There are some lovely clever moments in here, but the joy of this book is in the characters; wonderfully sympathetic without being cariactures at all.

    I think Ms. Lackey has a thing for the fae. Who doesn't? I have a fetish for them. In this book, we get to see Eric again and I still like him. I love the ren faire tie ins as much as I like the music and how it impacts people and elves alike. This book is good for anyone who likes a bit of romance mixed in with their elves.

    One of their Bedlam's Bard books, Eric Bannon is back and trying to save his little brother Magnus and Magnus's friend, Ace, from their parents, who are puppets of evil elves. Hosea (another favorite character) is still around, trying to juggle his responsibilities as a bard and a Guardian.
