Fourth in the red-hot SERRAted Edge series. There are mages out there . . . and some of them are kind of cute--like Tannim, a young human mage with a taste for hot Celtic rock, fast cars and dangerous women. Now he thinks he's found Ms. Right, but there are some small problems: Her father is a dragon; she's not human, though she's definitely a fox; and she wants to kill hi ...more

Fourth in the SERRAted Edge urban fantasy series and revolving around elves, sportscar racing, and humans. The focus is back on Tannim and going home to the farm in Oklahoma.

You really must read these in order; it's much too confusing otherwise.

My Take
This one brings back characters from the other three stories, so it's nice to "catch-up" a bit.

It made me laugh when the authors pulled in a mention of Diana Tregarde from Lackey's Diana Tregarde. I keep thinking about that series; I must go back a

Possibly my favorite of all Mercedes Lackey's novels from "The SERRAted Edge". It had it all. There was great moments of imagination. Some laughs. Some adventure. And possibly some romance from more than one couple.

This is the continuing story of a human mage by the name of Tannim. He's all about fast cars, loud music and doing magic. But throughout his life he's dreamed of a young woman who's aged as he has and always shows up in his dreams to soothe his spirit and take care of other things as

This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon . Please head there for more in-depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.

Tannim's been given his marching orders to visit his family and pick up a new worker for his home elves. Little does he know there is a woman on his case and hunting him down with a vengeance. Or is it really a woman? Is he really being hunted?

This novel is another thrilling instalment in the SERRAted Edge series. Tannim is a car mage and a race

I enjoy this book. It's one of the few SERRAted Edge books without hurting kids in it. I like Joe and Tannim, and I like Shar and how she can stand on her own feet. I do wish there were more elves in this, though.

It's been several years since I read the earlier SERRAted edge books. It didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying this one.

EDIT: reread march 9 2013. This is my favourite of the SERRAted edge. I like the kitsune characters.

This is a pretty good Urban Fantasy series. This one takes place almost exclusively Underhill, so I'm not sure it really is "urban", but Tannim does take a souped up sports car with him, so I suppose it still counts--barely.

This was actually quite humourous. I'm not sure if Ms. Lackey was trying to be funny, but this story made me laugh at times. Seriously, a girlfriend who's father is a dragon and she's part fox? Fox, seriously, she's foxy? Snicker. I like stories with elves and this one was fun to read.
