“Whose white raven is this?”

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 th

The fifth book in the Zaria Fierce series, Aleks Mickelsen and the Call of the White Raven picks up immediately after the fourth book left off.

I was happy to see this start with a prologue that recaps the previous book as it’s a direct continuation and it had been a while since I’d finished book four. Readers who like to binge their series might find this overkill, but those who don’t mind spacing them out will find this to be just as helpful as I did.

Much like the rest of the series, this book

Hi Fiercelings,

One of the things I love best about bringing the Zaria Fierce Series to publication is working with Eoghan Kerrigan, the series' illustrator. It's such an amazing experience to see illustrations appear as if by magic based on words that I wrote. It's like getting to meet long time friends in person. His details are exquisite and add richness to the world. His artwork has become integral to the stories.

I remember working with him to bring a newer, older version of Aleks to life for

Aleks Mickelsen and the Call of the White Raven has plenty of action and adventure, and I love the way in which these characters and their relationships have developed across the series. The story really starts to take off as Aleks and his friends make their way toward the Autumn Court. First, they are attacked by Saskia of the Winter Court and then walk into the middle of a coup attempt to overtake the Autumn thrown by Nori and Aleks aunt and uncle, Cornel

The second Aleks Mickelsen adventure - and the fifth book in the Zaria Fierce series - is here! Aleks Mickelsen and the Call of the White Raven continues the adventure started in last year's Aleks Mickelsen and the Twice-Lost Fairy Well. Aleks, a changeling raised by his human family, has to work with his fae sister, Nori, and his best friends to stop the chaos dragon Fritjof from wreaking havoc on the fae and human worlds. This time, Aleks has to negotiate with his treacherous fae relations and
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 Lo ...more

I received this book for free. I am voluntarily posting this review and all opinions expressed herein are my own.

What an enjoyable series! I love the way in which these characters and their relationships have developed across the series. The focus on this trilogy is on Aleks and a decision he needs to make. But he needs to help his sister and he brings his friends along for the adventure. I really enjoy the recurring theme [both in the Zaria trilogy and this one] how everyone in their group has

Once again we find ourselves following the adventures of Aleks, Zaria, and all of their friends. This book was a fast paced thrill ride from start to finish. It amazes me that this is the 5th book in this series, and it’s still so fresh and exciting. You get to revisit a few old friends from the earlier books, and meet many fascinating new ones. It’s interesting to watch Aleks’ struggles between his human side and his fey side really starting to unfold. He’s so desperate to be human and live a n ...more

I loved this book! Unlike books that disappoint as a series moves along, this one has a perfect story with twists and turns, surprises, and great friendships. I found myself highlighting poetic descriptions or information about the storyline that I need to remember. I bought the ebook. My paperback is coming.

BTW, I absolutely love the covers!

I went to the midnight video. Be sure to listen to Michele Carpenter's reading from the book (you can fast forward to it). Her voice for the white raven is

Kiera Gillet does it again in the 5th installment of her Zaria Fierce/Aleks Mickelsen books. Continuing on in full force, Gillett's story is full of adventure that makes the reader continue to want more.
In this installment, Aleks and the gang continue on in Niphillem to help the Fey during a war over the Lost Well. Discovering new powers, new friends, and a whole new trial of mishaps, the story will keep readers on the edge of their seats wanting to know how it ends.

I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest review. 

First, let me apologize for how long it has taken me to write this review. I recently gave birth in an emergency Csection after having a really horrible pregnancy, which resulted in a few hospitalizations. But! I am giving it now, and hopefully will continue on with my book reviews now that things are somewhat normal, for me anyways.

This is book 5 in the Zaria Fierce series, though it follows my favorite, Aleks Mickelsen. It
