Knight of Ghosts and Shadows (Bedlam's Bard, Bk 1)
Knight of Ghosts and Shadows - Bedlam's Bard, Bk 1 Author:Mercedes Lackey, Ellen Guon Eric Banyon, musician, is out playing the blues on his flute one day, but he couldn't have known that the desperate sadness of his music would free a young elven noble from the magical prison he has been languishing in for centuries--nor does he believe it!
Beautiful music and elves hopped up on caffeine, what's not to love? It is especially good if you happen to be aware of the REAL machinations that went on trying to save the Agoura Faire site [and yes, they lost] which Lackey so admirably spins into a tale of magic and elves...

Elves in L.A.? Well, that would explain a lot, wouldn't it?
In fact, half a millenium ago, when the elves were driven from Europe, they came to--where else? Southern California.
Happy at first, they fell on hard times after one of their number tried to force the rest to be his vassals. Now it's up to one poor human to save them if he can. A knight in shining armor he's not, but he's their last hope--their Knight of Ghosts and Shadows.
