Before #1 New York Times best-selling author Patricia Briggs created her two hugely successful urban fantasy series, Mercy Thompson and Alpha & Omega, she wrote her debut fantasy epic, Masques. Newly revised and expanded, and available in audio for the first time, Masques arrives in our store just in time, with the fourth book in this series, Wolfsbane, coming soon.
After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. Her latest mission involves spying on the increasingly powerful sorcerer Geoffrey ae'Magi. But in a war against an enemy armed with the powers of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is – or where he will strike next?
Katherine Kellgren (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), one of Audible's favorite narrators and one of the premier voices of science fiction and fantasy, sweeps listeners away on this engrossing adventure.
BONUS AUDIO: Includes an introduction written and read by author Patricia Briggs.

Satisfying tale, interesting characters
They are equally good, but I love Katherine Kellgren's interpretation. I listen to this book and it's sequel, Wolfsbane, over and over.
When Wolf rescues Aralorn from the ae'Magi's castle.
It was interesting to hear the evolution of this book. I have only lately discovered Patricia Briggs through the Mercy Thompson books, so I have never read the original.
Katherine Kellgren does a stellar job. Her voice is soothing and easy to listen to, but she manages to convey the cynical Wolf, the unctious Geoffrey ae'Magi, the earnest Myr and the miscellaneous denizens of Myr's refugee camp with aplomb, bringing them all to life with her characterizations.
Can two mercenaries save the kingdom?
I really enjoy this book, even though it was reworked from an earlier publication and has some rough spots. These characters are like comfort food - they just make you feel good.
