Rainbow Bridge

Gwyneth Jones, Author . Gollancz $9.95 (374p) ISBN 978-0-575-07976-2

The final book in Jones's Bold as Love series (after 2005's Band of Gypsies ) wraps up the story of the Rock and Roll Reich, a group whose story has gotten too convoluted for new readers. Much of the novel focuses on the state of postwar England, with the elements of Arthurian myth, rock 'n' roll, and political commentary that Jones has spread throughout this series. There's much to like—not least the subversion of the traditional “resistance fighting the invaders” trope—and fans of the previous books will find it rewarding, but even they will likely find the middle sections overlong.
