There's little future in trying to offer a synopsis of this urban (well, sort of) fantasy romp, which takes place in the same world invented by Mercedes Lackey for her SERRAted Edge Series, and is a direct sequel to Shepherd's "Elvendude" (it helps if you've read that first). The battle between Seleighe (Light Elf) King Aedhan's clan and its Unseleighe (Dark Elf) rival led by Japhet Dhu spills over into the human world, where it sweeps up 15-year-old Lucas Trask, a confused teen wavering between suicide and Satanism, and Wolf, a Native American Gulf War vet who is the last member of his tribe and the grandson of a shaman. Wolf's presence, in turn, involves Thorn Wilson, a Rider Guardian--a sort of angel who's been dead since 1922 and serves the Lord of the Land of Shadows as the helper of motorbikers everywhere. From Faerie to the Real World to the half-formed limbo that lies between all realities, the characters pursue each other through the interdimensional Gates, with abductions, human sacrifice, and assorted deceptions along the way.

Randolf "Thorn" Wilson died a long time ago. But that doesn't stop him from riding hi ghost Harley through the sky, trying to help other bikers. Now he's caught in a battle between an elven King and his skateboard-riding champion and a mad Prince of the Dark Elves and his demon drug-pusher. Also caught in the middle are two mortal bikers, Wolf, an ex-vet who's a mage-in-training, and Lucal Tatum, a criminal in training. It's up to Thorn to save thw tow without getting the tattered remnant of his spirit blasted to the four winds.
Kin to Mercedes Lackey's Serrated Edge series.
Great fun!

Not nearly as good as Mercedes Lackey's books in this series.
