Last week I posted about my literary Achilles’ heel and how I want to read more fantasy and sci-fi. I decided to start my challenge with The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima, and I LOVE it. I’m currently reading the second book, The Exiled Queen, and plan on reading the third book, The Gray Wolf Throne, soon after I finish book two. Since I’m working on reading all of the books currently available to read, I’m planning on putting a review of sorts together when I finish book three. In the mean time, I found this trailer which explains what the series is about, in particular book one. I’m keeping this post short because I want to get back to The Exiled Queen (I soooo love this series! Did I mention that?)
Summary (From Goodreads): This novel marks the first giant step in a momentous fantasy journey orchestrated by Cinda Williams Chima, the author of the popular Warrior Heir series. Its two chief protagonists are ex-thief Han Alister, an impoverished commoner, and Raisa ana’Marianna, the headstrong Princess Heir of the Fells. The Demon King brings them together, creating part of a volatile mix of action, magic, and danger. Empathetic characters; wizardly attacks.
