    Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that tore apart the United States, leaving nothing but scorched and poisoned ruins, and nearly exterminating humankind. Those who escaped the carnage and blight were led to sanctuary by the boy savior known as the Hawk - the gypsy morph. In an idyllic valley, its borders warded by powerful magic against the horrors beyond, humans, Elves, and mutants alike found a place they believed would be their home forever.

    The story is a little rough at the beginning but has a great, great ending few chapters. I really liked how the story pulled together to show how all of the characters in the story are effected and how their lives are drastically changed by the occurrences that are happening around them.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    I like the story line and the main characters are really easy to relate to.

    What made the experience of listening to Masques the most enjoyable?

    The entire book was great, from beginning to end!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Masques?

    When the 2 main characters fall for each other.


    What does Katherine Kellgren and Patricia Briggs (introduction) bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It was good to hear Patricia Briggs explain for herself what to expect of the revised version of the book. I've heard Katherine Kellgren read before, she was a little annoying at the beginning of this read. Her reading was really intense for to long of a period of time, I had to fight the urge to stop the book- when it really wasn't necessary for her to be that intense. But I do enjoy her accents that shes able to pull off.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I couldn't get enough of this book!!
