The Book starts out in a dark alley in, New York city. Then ends up spending a great deal of time in the Ether. The land of the Fairies. A Topsy-turvy place where nothing is as it seems. Though do to certain name dropping, I suspect the comparisons to Wonderland were done on purpose.
The story is fascinating, the world building intriguing and the characters engaging.
My favorite character is by far Jack. Jack can turn into a gigantic black dog at will. (Note: not a werewolf.) He is also charming and witty and impulsive and short tempered. His background is really mysterious and I would read another volume just to know more about him.
Surprisingly I didn’t hate Peg. I am always cautious of books where men write Female POVs. Sometimes they come across as a little off. But Peg was spot on. She is not a male in a dress, nor is she some weak stereo type.
What I didn’t like: there was very little I didn’t like but one thing I would change is to have Peg's brother Archie in the book at least in the beginning. His death is the catalyst for the whole story. And we never see him alive. It’s isn’t a spoiler to say that, he dies in the first chapter, off screen. And so, I just don’t really care very much that he’s dead.
But that ending . . .
The ending will leave you wanting more and maybe wondering what did I just read?
Akers' vivid descriptions made the imaginative Ether come to life, even though I often got confused by the complex set of rules and allegiances that governed the fairy world. Even minor characters had vibrant personalities, and I was wavering right along with Peg on who could be trusted and who might turn on her. The ending did a great job wrapping up the primary story line but leaving open questions and new goals for future books. Even though I typically prefer books that are more character and relationship based, The Final Paladin was a fun adventure and an enjoyable read!
