BARDIC VOICES: Four and Twenty Blackbirds Mercedes Lackey Chapter One Rain, cold rain, as icy as only a midwinter night could make it, dripped despairingly into the dismal streets of the city of Haldene. It should have cleansed the pavements, but instead it left them looking slick and oily; glistening with a dubious sheen, but not clean. Читать онлайн Four and Twenty Blackbirds.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds book. Tal's investigation is either over-explained methodical excellence (will there ever be a Mercedes Lackey book I don't yell at to stop explaining at me?) or happenstance. She tries to make up for this by showing things from the villain's pov later in the story, but doesn't fully commit to showing us the scope of the horrors, leaving just this grimy feeling over everything.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds Mercedes Lackey This is a work of fiction. Box 1403 Riverdale, NY 10471.

In the wake of a rash of murders, each of which involves a lower-class victim, a religious proximity, a stiletto weapon, and killers that commit suicide, constable Tal Rufen uncovers a terrible conspiracy. Reprint.
Attention, fans of The Criminal Minds television series!
There is a serial murderer in Kingsford and they need a BAU (Behavioral Analysis Unit) to catch him. Constable Tal is assigned to the case by Justiciar Ardis. Together they gather a team and pursue the unsub. At the end of the book, there is a hint of more adventures to come. I certainly hope there will be!

This story harks back to an incident in Misty's The Lark and the Wren and answers the question "and then what happened?" after that incident.
I've read *exactly* one other of Mercedes Lackey's books - The Firebird, which bored me to tears.
Undaunted, I read the first 2 chapters of this book on-line several years ago, managed to get into the story, and after requesting this book as a Christmas present for several years, finally decided to get it on my own.
I have not read any of the other Bardic Voices books, so I can't comment on there not being any Free Bards within the story (they are occasionally referred to). What I liked about this story is that it's a combination mystery and fantasy, as another poster has said. Yes, you do find out who the murderer is about halfway through, but I was intrigued enough by that point to keep going, to see what made this mage tick, why he/she wanted to go after Ardis. It was also interesting when the mage decides to change tactics near the end of the book. The way it was written, it made complete sense to me.
On another note, I found Ardis's grappling with staying in the Church to be realistically written, and it actually moved me at certain points.
With the current situation in the world, plus my own personal strife, this book saw me through a depressing period in my life. So, to sum it up, this book is a fine way to lose yourself in an interesting world.
I don't love this. It was, to me, a weaker story than the first book or two in this series. SPOILER alert! I also was not a big fan of the entire incipient romantic aspect. It seemed forced and unnecessary. Having said all that, I do enjoy Ms. Lackey's stories, and the continuity from book one, represented by the villain, was good. The resolution of the story seemed rushed, but the 'loose ends' were tied and I did not regret spending the time with it.
Enjoyable police procedural, the psychological drama was good and the heroism of the main characters carried the story. I liked that this was not a traditional romance but about mature strong people who were able to make sacrifices for duty and the greater good of their land.
Much different from other Bardic Voices novels, it runs into a modern detective story set in a Medieval magical time.
I saw the end coming a few chapters ahead, but it was written in an entertaining enough manner to keep me connected & entertained.
A fun late night book.
I have now caught up on my Misty books

I have not opened this book except to see the cover and check the pages a little. The cover would have drawn me even if I did not have quite a library of her books.
If you haven't read the first three books in the series, you won't appreciate it as much. This one really ties the others together.
