Foundation, Intrigues, Changes.  I've read them all.  No, I repeat, not one word.

Read Unnatural Issue. It was pretty good, seemed to take a long time to get started though. Also the romance angle annoyed me this time. Probably because I knew the girl wasn't going to end up with guy #1 but so much time was focused on it.

Timeline wise, it took place after Serpent's Shadow but before Phoenix and Ashes.

Just finished reading "Trio of Sorcery".  I really enjoyed revisiting the Diana Tregarde universe.
Find what you love and do it!

I just discovered Eric Banyon in 'Beyond World's End'. Pretty cool story. Love her elves. But I obviously missed out on a number of books prior to that in the same series. Will have to make a point to read 'em.
I'd rather enjoy life...besides, it costs nothing to smile!!!

Including the one where she does an "Alfred Hitchcock". ;)

I liked that series, at least the last four or so. I never could really get into the first couple, and read them mainly for backstory. I read the books completely out of order, I think I started with Mad Maudlin, then read Beyond World's End and Spirits White as Lightning, then a few months later tracked down the first couple.
One question I have about those: Kayla is around sixteen when Eric first goes Underhill, and is only a year or two older when he comes out two decades later. I remember in one of the later books they give some explanation for it and say that it took Eric a while to notice. Was that intentional, or a cover-up of a mistake? Not that I really care, I like Kayla and was glad she was in there, but I wondered about that. Maybe there was more of an explanation and I missed it.

The only explanation I remember is that Kayla hid Underhill for the same amount of time as Eric.

Yeah, they had to keep her away from people who wanted to enslave her as a healer, basically.

Maybe that was in a story I didn't read, because I don't remember that. I just remember some offhanded comment about her being Underhill for a while. That would explain my confusion. Thanks.  :)

You guys are talking about Bedlam Boyz. It's set in the same universe, but NOT written by Lackey.

Just finished Beauty and the Werewolf. It was pretty enjoyable.  :) My one complant is that it was really obvious who the bad guy was.

It's the 500 Kingdoms, stuffed to the rafters and busting at the seams with obvious tropes, you sort of have to expect that.
