A treasure of urban fantasy

I bought this book at first because of the author, being a big fan of Misty's. After reading it once I was hooked. Since then I've read my copy of this 2 in 1 novel until some of the pages are literally falling out. In the theme of the SERRAted Edge books (bits of which are mentioned in Bedlam's Bard itself), she mixes magic and the hardcore reality of being a street busker with an elegence and sense of fun that has captivated me and everyone I've introduced the book to. A must read!


Bedlam's Bard...well..there really is no word to express how incredible this book is! I simply adore Mercedes Lackey, and have read almost everything she's written, and I believe- no, I am certain- that this is my absolute favorite, if I had to pick (and such a hard thing to do too! ) out of everything. This book has such wit, love, and enthusiasm..It will make you think, make you cry, make you laugh till you die (oo I rhymed!) and it's just so incredibly funny and so incredibly's a work of art! I've read this book...well, at LEAST seven times, and I can never, ever get tired of it. Every time I read it, I laugh more, I cry more, I understand more..I think more. It's wonderful. It combines a controversial issue (which I don't think ought to be controversial at all!) with love, wit, enthusiasm, Elves (who can beat that! ), magic, music, and Celtic lore with such skill and alacrity..It is a MUST read.

Two books in one...

This is a 2-in-1 edition of "Knight of Ghosts and Shadows" and "Summoned to Tourney." As these are two of my favorite books, I quickly purchased it, but it may be an unpleasant surprise for those hoping for a sequel.

Greatest Fantasy I've read in ages!!!

I first read Bedlam's Bard becuase Mercedes Lackey is one of my favorite authors, but as I got further into the book I began to fall in love with the plot itself. The quips, jokes, and love are irresistable. As I read the book again and again, it had me luaghing so hard I couldn't breath. I recomend this book to all my friends, and so far each of them has loved it. A great read for anyone who still believes in Elves. All Mercedes Lackey boooks are great reads but this one was superb.


I was wary of these books when I first got into Misty's writing, but I loved them once I read them. When I heard from a friend that they were coming out with this book, I was like "Great! More of Kory and Beth and Eric!" Then she got the book, and told me it was a reprinting of _Knight of Ghosts and Shadows_ and _Summoned to Tourney_ and I was heartbroken. I understand that Ms. Lackey is hard at work on other books, but I would REALLY love to see some more of the Urban Fantasies. Valdemar can wait a little.
