Nearly a year ago, blinded by grief and betrayal, Sam of Wilds made a desperate decision to follow the Great White into the Dark Woods. Now, he emerges to a world changed. The City of Lockes is a prison. The King has been locked away in the dungeons. The Kingdom of Verania has fallen, and the Dark wizard Myrin sits on the throne. But soon after his return, Sam learns of a resistance fighting in his name, led by a courageous knight, a defiant prince, a pissed-off unicorn, and a half-giant who wants to smash everything in sight.

This is one of the best series I have ever read, and certainly one of the best narrations I have ever heard. The books are clever and funny, and from the start of The Lightning Struck Heart, I was immediately invested in the characters and their stories. The books are also tragic and heart wrenching and every other thing a story needs to be satisfying. Michael Lesley is an incredible narrator who truly gives each of the characters a unique voice.
