    One thought on “Mad Maudlin”

    1. Eric Banyon, better known as Bedlam's Bard, is finally about to graduate from Julliard and enter the Real World and so, with the help of a psychiatrist who specializes in the problems of magicians, he's finally coming to terms with his past. But a spur-of-the-moment trip home to Boston to visit his parents brings him more trouble than even Eric thought possible. Meanwhile, his Bardic apprentice Hosea has discovered that the young homeless children in New York's shelters have created a bizarre my [...]

    2. Enjoyable urban fantasy by someone who knows how to write it in her sleep. Eric Banyon is trying to figure out how to deal with his bad parents, whom he hasn't seen in a decade or more. Meanwhile, his apprentice Hosea is trying to understand about the Bloody Mary who haunts the homeless children he meets and they both must battle the typical evil protagonists in this kind of book: preachers and New Age cultists. It's not a deep read, but the characters (well, the good ones) are very likeable.

    3. A lush and fascinating story, despite the few geographical gaffes. I really like the ongoing characters and look forward to more about the new ones.

    4. Good solid storytelling, very gritty and real, one of my favorite urban fantasy series. I highly recommend these.

    5. First read in 2008, again in 2009, and rereading it now.This offtake on elves deals with loss, addiction, and the effects of power on those not equipped to deal with it. It touches on the plight of the multitudes of homeless children, runaways from unbearable situations, and suggests some possible solutions. Overall, a great book of social commentary.

    6. This is one of my favorites of the Bedlam's Bard books. I like all of them; they're books that I've kept and that I re-read. And I just discovered that this has a spin-off; if you like this book, you should definitely read Arcanum 101.

    7. I stumbled into this book without realizing it was the middle of a series, but the story had me hooked so I finished it. Some great characters and good plots involving homeless kids. Now I need to read the beginning volumes of the series.

    8. Continuation of the Bedlam's bard series, very enjoyable, love the concept. You really need to start at the beginning of the series.

    9. I wasn't very fond of the jumping back and forth to so many different things in the story line, but still a great read.
