I did not read this book expecting another Iron Druid series. This book is not Urban Fantasy but true Fantasy, set in a world much different then ours with a very inventive magic system.

The story is told by a Bard and a Historian, the bard tells the story thorough the viewpoints of several different people.
It can be difficult at times to keep track of who is who, but as the bard changes viewpoints at least you are given a name and whereabouts. So with a little thought and concentration you get a wonderful experience. (I am tempted to make this my first Audible book just to see what they do with it)

The story comes together at the end, but a cliffhanger develops that leads into the next book in this series.

I look forward to the next book, as I enjoyed this book more than I had expected to. It is one of the few books that I will be adding to my permanent collection (don't have room for many more...I don't even save the Iron Druid books). You should be honored Mr. Hearne as this work joins the the likes of Lackey, Eddings, Jordan, Martin, Butcher, Goodkind, Tolkien and a few others
