I was looking forward to the release of this book. It was a well put together piece of work. I will keep a look out for the next book in the series.

I am usually not a fan of teenage boy characters in YA books, because they are either too whiny or too macho, so it was a pleasant surprise to find that I really liked Timothy. He has had to deal with more than any person should. Mental health issues, a jerk uncle, and the sudden death of his mother. I enjoyed the fae world that the author has created. Aenya is awesome. I love her strength and passion. She is a wonderful companion to Timothy, introducing him to the forests of Ireland, the fellow fairies and elves, and most importantly, his role in this not-so-new life. Brace yourselves for the ending. Thank goodness there is a book two coming.

Timothy has recently lost his mother and is living with his horrible uncle. He has several issues that make him one of the main targets for bullying at school. One day he has enough and decides to try and kill himself. Thankfully Aenya was there to save him. She is fae and recognized Timothy. Together they learn that he is the seventh son of a seventh son and very powerful. They return to Ireland where Timothy meets his Grandmother and learns that he may be the one to restore Alfheim. But it’s not going to be easy, his uncle and others want to use him to help them rule the world. I really liked this story. Poor Timothy is just having such a hard time and even when he learns the truth yet he still doubts himself. He does have to fight his hatred for his uncle but he is such wonderful person that the good in him will win. I loved watching him grow thorugh the story. Although he has doubts seeing how others are stepping up with their own fears helps him to keep fighting. This is a great young adult story that will appeal to everyone. I can’t wait to read more from Gary Nilsen. I received Alfheim for free from Sage’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.
