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.

And when a young warrior following the Tradition disappears, leaving his sweetheart and mother to fear the worst, Aleksia's powers are needed as never before.

Now, on a journey through a realm of perpetual winter, it will take all her skills, a mother's faith and a little magic to face down an enemy more formidable than any she has ever known.... Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel- Goodbye Borders | 2/11/2014

    " This book was very detailed and dry for a good first half of the book. For a fourth book in a series it was too detailed about the Tradition and Godmothers. It finally got better around the time I was seriously considering putting it into my DNF pile. Just okay for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyssa | 1/18/2014

    " Fairly anticlimactic. I feel bad writing all of these lame reviews about the series- I kept hoping they would start getting more interesting because the ideas were good...but they just fell short. The writing style is fine, it just doesn't deliver a spellbinding story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/18/2014

    " Delightful story. Another fun read from Mercedes Lackey! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/16/2014

    " Good, good story. Aleksia, Anukka, Ilmari, and the rest were all fantastic characters. Loved how the Snow Queen fairytale was blended with other tales (I just wish I knew which ones they were). My one complaint is that the story ended too quickly. I would've liked more of a resolution. But, all in all, I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 1/16/2014

    " Another fun addition to the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms, in which Godmother Aleksia gets to go on her first adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacque | 1/7/2014

    " I read this because I like Mercedes Lackey and I find the idea of the Tradition intriguing. I was disappointed with how juvenile the story was. Of course, that follows the Tradition too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleanor | 1/6/2014

    " Fun new "twist"on old "fairy tale" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 10/30/2013

    " The worst one in the series so far. I have to admit to being a little disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kilian Metcalf | 10/25/2013

    " Slightly confusing and muddled version of the classic fairy tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha | 9/27/2013

    " Liekd the sardonic lead and teasing towards fairy tail cliches. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 7/14/2013

    " This was not one of my favorites of the series, but it wasn't horrible. I felt like there were far too many characters and far too much going on with the plot. The actual conflict felt a bit underdeveloped for me, but it still had that marvelous flair that I love so much. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Truthynenemy | 6/20/2013

    " I have to say, despite this being one of my favorite fairy tales, this was not my favorite. I'm not quite sure why. It had more character development than the previous one (although still not as much as I'd like to see). The writing style wasn't any different. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline | 5/13/2013

    " Set in the 500 kingdoms, this is a revamping of many old fairy tales. The book is not long, and a very cute easy read. This is a good book to curl up on the couch with, and become lost in a happy-ending fairy tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 4/26/2013

    " Read from 6/30 to 7/6. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen Boyd | 3/19/2013

    " Intereseting fantasy tale..a little too slow for my tastes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelley | 2/8/2013

    " this was ok, but not nearly as good as the others in the series that I've read. I actually was confused for a while trying to keep the two stories straight that are happening concurrently. I kept mixing them up in my mind and forgetting which character was who. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jacqueline | 1/3/2013

    " Not the strongest in the series, the plot took forever to get moving, the romance was almost nonexistant and there wasn't a decent balence between the male view point and the female one as there is in books one three and five. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 8/27/2012

    " I've been pleasantly surprised by how much I've enjoyed this series (thanks Shanna!), that is, up until now. This one seemed to really ramble along and wander around. I had a hard time getting into this one, and finished it feeling like something was missing. There was no spark of magic in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 5/22/2011

    " A wonderful retelling of the Snow Queen fairytale! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 4/22/2011

    " Another fun addition to the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms, in which Godmother Aleksia gets to go on her first adventure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 4/8/2011

    " IT wasn't nearly as good as her previous five hundred kingdoms books. There was virtually no romance here.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magdalene | 3/28/2011

    " I love this series. I prefer the other books in the series, but that's not to say this one isn't great. The other ones are just more great! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 3/3/2011

    " LOVE tales from the 500 kingdoms!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/8/2011

    " Nice addition to the series "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyssa | 1/7/2011

    " Fairly anticlimactic. I feel bad writing all of these lame reviews about the series- I kept hoping they would start getting more interesting because the ideas were good...but they just fell short. The writing style is fine, it just doesn't deliver a spellbinding story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 10/18/2010

    " i think i read this just cuz it's clean. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cailin | 9/19/2010

    " Was a little worried about this story from the cover. Give it is shot and you will love it too. The cover and summary don't even really give you a hint on the wonderful tale about to unfold before your eyes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gwonam | 9/12/2010

    " This book would have been a thousand times better if the focus had been on the fairy tale instead of on the fairy godmother, who was an incredibly uncompelling character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 9/5/2010

    " A fairy godmother (she reminds me of the White Witch of Narnia) prods a self-centered brat into growing up. Nicely twists a variety of fairy tales together creating a great story. "
