Mercedes Lackey
The Black Swan
DAW (hardcover, 400 pages, $24.95/$34.95 Can)
Publication date: May, 1999

From the author of Werehunter and The Mage Storms comes a retelling of the classic ballet "Swan Lake," told from the viewpoint of the wronged daughter of an evil magician. "A young prince spends his youth with his nose in a book and communing with nature. On one of his walks, he spies a flock of swans, and is amazed to see them transform into maidens as the sun sets. He returns every night, eventually falling in love with one of the stricken maidens. And so begins the legendary fable of magic, shapeshifting, and the power of love beyond appearances."

Owlsight (Owlflight, Book Two)
& Larry Dixon
DAW (hardcover, 389 pages, $24.95 US/$34.99 Can)
Publication date: October 1, 1998

The middle novel in the trilogy continues the tale of Darien and the Hawkbrothers, revealing more about the mysterious allied peoples such as King Stagg Tyrsell -- and exploring more of the mystery of the barbarian Bear clan that attacked the now prosperous Errold's Grove. "Darian has been living in the temporary encampment of the Tayledras Hawkpeople for nearly four years, working as a liaison between them and the survivors of his own ravaged village. But as he is about to return with the Tayledras back to their home Vale to continue his magician's apprenticeship, Darian suddenly learns that his parents, missing for five years, are alive-trapped inside the borders of the treacherous Eastern Empire."

Owlflight (Owlflight, Book One)
& Larry Dixon
DAW (reprint, paperback, 342 pages, $6.99 US/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: October, 1998 (First Printing: October 1997)

The husband and wife team who've produced a number of fantasy series -- including the Mage Wars trilogy (The Black Gryphon, The White Gryphon, and The Silver Gryphon) and the Serrated Edge novels -- launch another, this one set in the magical realm of Valdemar, the familiar stage of more than twenty of Mercedes Lackey's prior novels (including, most recently, Storm Breaking and Storm Rising.) Chronologically this coming-of-age tale follows the events of Storm Breaking, but is apparently unconnected. "Though apprenticed to a legendary wizard, the young orphan Darian remains difficult and strong-willed. But a sudden twist of fate changes his life forever. The sacking of his village forces him to flee into the great forest, where the mysterious Hawk People lead him on the path to maturity."

The third volume in the Bardic Voices series - not Bardic Choices or The Bard's Tales. Originality in fantasy--a guess it's a moot point.
