Rediscover the magic of the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms, by New York Times bestselling author Mercedes Lackey.

Aleksia, Queen of the Northern Lights, is mysterious, beautiful and widely known to have a heart of ice. 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 disappears, 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.

Another fun story, this time about one of the Godmothers rather than someone they're helping :)

Better than I thought it would be. I'm glad that the story switched back from thoes who are influenced by 'the Tradion' to a new Fairy Godmother. They seem to have the most fun anyway. ;)

brought me into the fantasy world and did not let go until I finished reading!! Loved it (and the others based on the fairy tales)

If pages worth of setting, costume, and character description, are not your thing, this book will drive you mad before page ten. While there is an overload of description, it is handled artfully enough that it doesn't stop the story dead. However be advised that about 70 percent of the story is extremely through descriptions of every possible thing. The idea behind the series is interesting, but this particular story, while promising for the bulk of it, conclude on a contrived and predictable note. While it may not be the best book ever written, it's interesting, especially for someone who has wishes for more, and more lengthy, fairytales.
