Description from the publisher:
Book 3 in the Songs of Magic Series.  The sequel to Fairy Metal Thunder and Fairy Blues.

With their first single shooting up the Billboard charts, the Zebras hit the road as the opening band for an epic stadium tour across America. The future looks bright for the band, if they can survive the rioting fans, Queen Mab of Faerie, the dullahan, and the evil teddy bears.

Aoide the Lutist and Liadan the banshee wolf cross into man-world on the trail of the stolen fairy instruments. Aoide is shocked at the strangeness of life among the humans, but she also learns about a thrilling new kind of music never heard in Faerie...rock and roll.


Albert (my son) and I have continued this series as a read-aloud in the car on our way to and from work.

We're back with The Assorted Zebras, Jason, Mitch, Erin, and 'Dred.  This third book in the series picks up right where FAIRY BLUES left off. 

We have continued to love this series.  Both of us were laughing out loud throughout this.  This series has, so far, been very good.  Mr. Bryan writes terrifically detailed descriptions that bring this fantastic world alive.  The puns are becoming more numerous and I love puns.  I find them to be a sign of intelligence.  I love the three interwoven stories of this series and look forward to continuing our unique reading arrangement.

Grammar/editing:  ungraded – since I was listening instead of reading, I don't know, but Albert said it was well done.
