Spirits White as Lightning by Mercedes Lackey & Rosemary EdghillDescription: The fifth volume of Lackey and Edghill's Bedlam's Bard series continues the adventures of Eric Banyon, a Julliard student in our world and Sir Eric, knight and bard, in the Elvenlands. It is a collection of subplots flying in close formation, with Eric and his comrades in both worlds initiating a new guardian, discovering how elf and human can produce a child without dark magic, installing a computer system for a dragon, and fighting assorted villains, who this time are mostly bent on revenge rather than conquest. Apart from all those subplots, and perhaps because of them, the book's pacing is uneven-at times fast and completely absorbing; at others, weighed down by pop psychology. The authors are clearly proceeding on the principle that you can't keep a good series down, and this is a good series, though newcomers should retreat to earlier volumes to catch up on established characters.
