He then discovers he is bedlam s bard powerful natural bard, about which he frequently whinges. He self flagellates over things that are not his fault but then does batshite crazy things like going to visit the evil sorceress or walking alone into high security facilities.


Also, as an early coup de grace for his character, he spends pages doing the 'I don't believe in elves, this cant bedlam s bard happening' routine which is even more annoying than his whinging.

Bedlam Bard Series

Lets face it, they may start out are good, believable characters but by the end they are are NOT well bedlam s bard males at all. It is not that they are effeminate, it is not bedlam s bard they think and behave like a girlie idea of how boys think because, with good writing skills those things can work.

It takes more than calling everyone in sight a 'warrior' or 'elven warrior' to make fight scenes convincing. Lackey has written some good fight scenes, especially bedlam s bard in her career, but again, the longer she writes the lazier they get.

And not only the males. The initial characters are well set up, even whining Eric, but as the story progresses it is as if, once established, they are just dropped with no further character progression until by the end of the story they have become cardboard cutouts.
