Publisher's Summary

Aleks Mickelsen is a changeling with diminishing magical powers and a complete nuisance for a new a pet. For the first time in his life, he's lost. He led his friends to the wrong place. 

They might joke about there being worse things to face than disorientation, but comparing what Aleks did to the Wild Hunt breathing down their necks (even if the comparison is somewhat favorable) isn't all that comforting. 

Hopefully, Aleks can get his head on straight and get them all back on track to fighting Fritjof, otherwise chaos is going to win.

Love this series!

It's good to be back with the gang! Poor Aleks has a lot on his plate, and it's only made worse with the arrival of a very annoying, (to him anyway), white raven! Continuing on from the last book, Aleks has to put aside his feelings and try to work with his sister, Nori, and his friends, to stop Fritjof before it's too late. But it's not only evil Dragons they have to contend with, it's also his fae "family" and relations. Those that are supposed to be closest to him, want the location of the Lost Well in order to use it to rule. Aleks' friends are taken hostage, and he is given a task to rescue them before the time runs out. The only help he gets is some riddles that reveal the location of his friends. Can he do it or will he be forced to reveal the location?

This series is so good! It has a lot going for it, and both myself and my son love reading them. The characters are all well written and likable. Aleks just wants a normal life, but fate wants something else from him. He is such a reluctant hero, but that makes him more likable. The others in the group are the same. They are each easy characters to like and are worthy heroes and heroines!! It's one thing I love about the series.

Another thing is the fast paced plot and all the fantastical creatures the author has created. Aleks struggles with the fact that he is a changeling and in the Fae realm, changelings are things that everyone hates, at least that's what he has been told, so Aleks struggles with the decision of whether he wants to be Fae or Human. Yet he immediately does what's needed to help his friends. I love the friendship between all the kids and how strong it is!!

In all, this series is such a great read for any age. It's action packed, exciting, entertaining and the settings are always wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing where the author takes it from here and how the dynamics of the group will have changed now that there's royalty in their group!!

Michele Carpenter has such a pleasant and easy voice to listen to. She gave each character their own unique tone and captured the atmosphere really well. Her portrayal of the Raven was awesome!! I thoroughly enjoyed her performance here!!

I was given this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Like a day out and a great adventure...

This volume of the Zaria Fierce series feels like a fun camping trip. A combination of an adventure and a love story.

The book is once again full of imaginative things and characters - a wishing well, a cave, a witch, a bird (whose permanent echoing eventually became a bit of a pain in the neck to me) , foxes - and a king not wishing to be king :-)

Entertaining from beginning to end and recommended.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great New Sequel

I really enjoyed this next book. Aleks is definitely becoming my favorite character in the series. Seeing him face his fear, and his fate, in accepting who he is, has made me think, and reminds me of my own individual quest for identity.

The story on the whole is intriguing, and I’m looking forward to the next installment.

Michele is becoming an excellent storyteller. I thoroughly enjoyed her performance of this book.

To Fae or Not to Fae

The gang's back together again, and yet growing... and growing pains naturally brings teenage drama even to a supernatural group. Additionally we cannot 'quoth the raven nevermore' because the difference between Edgar Allen Poe's winged nuisance and Aleks' is black and white. Deception, Riddle Games, and Magic Abound as always.

Since there are far more supporting character dialogues than usual, especially female, the 'pointer' on who is speaking gets a little blurred. Despite this the narrator does excellent as always.

Staying true to the feel of previous installments there is a contradicting but pleasantly twisted mix of normal life problems amongst fae court intrigue, bursts of adrenaline filled dashes to reach intellectual puzzles, and family that you love to hate. I am eager to see how Aleks' company will deal with the aftermath of this one.
