"Two novels of elvish lore and modern noir brought together for the first time by bestselling Mistresses of Urban Fantasy Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill. Beyond World's End Sieur Eric Banyon, Knight and Bard to the court of the Queen of Elfhame Misthold, moves back to the Big Apple to take care of unfinished business. Mostly, he just wants to finish his interrupted education at Julliard School of Music and settle down to a normal life. However, a normal life doesn't seem to be in his immediate future as he quickly discovers his Manhattan apartment has unique features, including a living gargoyle named Greystone and four Guardians who have sworn to protect New York from evil. And soon Eric discovers that unscrupulous researchers have created a drug that unlocks magical powers in humans - a drug that is 100 percent fatal over time. And now something evil from Underhill has other plans and seeks to use the temporary human powers to dominate World Above. But this is one bard who is going to let no such thing happen. Spirits White as Lightning Eric Banyon has more to worry about than passing his courses at Julliard. The evil elf lord Aerune, whose love was killed by mortal men, is determined to destroy the human race. Eric's only hope of stopping Aerune is to trap him inside a magical maze, from which there is no escaping. But for the plan to work, Eric and his friends must cross the land of chaos and survive, then travel undetected through a gate between worlds straight into the heart of Aerune's realm and trick the elf lord into entering the maze. Stopping Aerune once before was difficult. This time, the quest seems nothing less than impossible.About Beyond World's End and Spirits White as Lightning:"[T]his accessible blend of the urban and the whimsical will appeal to those who wonder whether the phantasmagoric walk city streets." -Publishers Weekly on Beyond World's End"[A]t times at times fast and completely absorbing. You can't keep a good series down, and this is a good series." -Booklist"--
