    Aleksia, Queen of the Northern Lights, is mysterious, beautiful, and widely known to have a heart of ice. No one would seek her wisdom except as a last resort. But when she's falsely accused of unleashing evil on nearby villages, she realizes there's an impostor out there far more heartless than she could ever be.

    Overall

    I had read two or three other books in the 500 Kingdoms series. They aren't great works of literature but they are inventive and fun. I enjoy the author's work so I picked this one up.
    It was good, the story pans back and forth between two areas of focus for much of the book, which was a little difficult at first because there's often no marker to indicate the switch. I was irked at the pronunciation of the word "mage," but other than that the narrator did an excellent job, even the accents were good.
    The story was interesting and engaging, and I didn't see the ending coming. I would recommend the book to any fantasy lover as an interesting view on fairytales.

    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....

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was excellent, the book interesting and well put together. I didn't really enjoy the voice used for Oberon, but understand the direction they were trying to go. A few folks have complained he doesn't sound like a 2000 year old druid, but if they'd been listening intently they'd know why. Besides, I would choose the distinction between characters that this narrator was able to produce over one that sounded like an ancient druid.
    There was a surprisingly wide range of characters and the asides to explain the workings of the beyond-mortal were surprisingly unobtrusive and usually flowed with the story. I think that anyone who enjoyed American Gods might enjoy this.
