Adventure, magic, war, and ambition conspire to throw together an unlikely group of companions in a struggle to save their world. When sixteen-year-old Han Alister and his Clan friend Dancer encounter three underage wizards setting fire to the sacred mountain of Hanalea, he has no idea that this event will precipitate a cascade of disasters that will threaten everything he cares about. Han takes an amulet from one of the wizards, Micah Bayar, to prevent him from using it against them. Only later does he learn that it has an evil history—it once belonged to the Demon King, the wizard who nearly destroyed the world a millennium ago. And the Bayars will stop at nothing to get it back. Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna, the heir to the Gray Wolf throne of the Fells, has just spent three years of relative freedom with her father’s family at Demonai Camp-riding, hunting, and working the famous Clan markets. Now court life in Fellsmarch pinches like a pair of too-small shoes. Wars are raging to the south, and threaten to spread into the high country. After a long period of quiet, the power of the Wizard Council is once again growing. The people of the Fells are starving and close to rebellion. Now more than ever, there’s a need for a strong queen. But Raisa’s mother Queen Marianna is weak and distracted by the handsome Gavan Bayar, High Wizard of the Fells. Raisa wants to be more than an ornament in a glittering cage. She aspires to be like Hanalea—the legendary warrior queen who killed the Demon King and saved the world. With the help of her friend, the cadet Amon Byrne, she navigates the treacherous Gray Wolf Court, hoping she can unravel the conspiracy coalescing around her before it’s too late.

    " It was a bit hard to get into at first but im glad I continued reading. This story is way better than I could've imagined. Chapter 24 had me on edge. The story is about Raisa and Han and their paths cross but only for a couple of chapters, so that was a bummer because I wanted more of the two interacting with each other. I really can't wait to start reading The Exiled Queen. "

    " Not bad at all, I enjoyed the book, but was expecting more action.... I expect, that probably happens in the 2nd book of the series.... Great world building, likeable and downright unlikeable characters, great writing style. I won't rush out to get the next book, but will definately read it some day . I'm curious to find out what happens...and as I mentioned earlier, I expect the second book will have more action considering how this story ends. "

    " it was soooo cool "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laticia | 2/4/2014

    " The book went by fast and I was well intrigued but did not really enjoy the story line nor did I like the character jumping. One paragraph it'll be about this character then the next paragraph its another. I found that a little aggravating at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scottandsasha | 2/2/2014

    " Entertaining and well written, but I woudn't recommend for young readers. Teens and up would be fine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brady | 1/31/2014

    " I thought it was a great book. I tore through it. I really connected to the characters. When the book ended I couldn't wait to pick up the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 1/27/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It gets you at the end and leaves you scrambling to get the next book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyra | 1/19/2014

    " Sort of slow in the beginning but definitely sped up by the end. I just wish there was a bit more action in the beginning. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth(The | 1/15/2014

    " It was okay, I am not sure if it held my interest enough to continue the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angel | 1/3/2014

    " This isn't my normal type of book, but I liked it alright, maybe I should read books out of my normal genre more often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 12/31/2013

    " I really loved this book. Cinda Williams Chima has a gift for creating really rich characters, and in the case of these ones, I kind of want to adopt them all and take them home with me! I found the storyline to be interesting, and the setting to be beautifully described. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 12/18/2013

    " a good easy read and lots of promise of what is to come! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 12/9/2013

    " This was a very good book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and it kept me wondering until the very end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tabitha | 6/16/2013

    " If you are looking for a book to test you tolerence, you have picked the right one. it is long and slightly tedious, but in the end it will leave you begging your parents for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. if you don't finish the series you are a stick in the mud with no taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 6/6/2013

    " If I could I would give this book a 4.5, only because of the first few chapters. The characters at the beginning did not grab me, but after chapter 4 I realized I was hooked, and couldn't put it down. The story line is fast paced and it's a fun, easy read. I'd recommend it to all ages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 3/16/2013

    " While there are some stiff bits in the writing, the story is engaging. I read the whole 4-book saga over this last month or so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Siobhan | 8/16/2012

    " classic high fantasy with likeable characters and a nicely paced plot. "

    " aaaa it was sooooo good!!!!!!! i cant wait to read the next one!!!!!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 James | 4/6/2012

    " This is the first book in 15 years that I just had to stop and walk away from. I could list out complaints but I just personally found it didn't engage me and worst of all it was completely boring. I had high hopes because it came as a recommendation. This book just wasn't for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moniq28 | 11/20/2011

    " I`ve really enjoyed this young/adults fantasy book. First installment was more like introduction to the world of Seven Realms, outlining plot and characters, but it was still good. I have high hopes for rest books of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kayleigh | 7/5/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Full review to come later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 6/28/2011

    " This book is a good start to a series, but it is just that the start. While things are teased in this book they are not explored until the next book in the series come out. So, for a first book in a series it is a great place to start. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 6/22/2011

    " this was a good start to a series. I am really hoping that the next is better, though. This one had a lot of character development, and was pretty slow starting. If the next book starts getting into the meat of the plot, however, then this first book setting it all up is necessary. we'll see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 6/14/2011

    " Quite good. Both Chima's prose and plot lines have a natural feel. "

    " Great YA action adventure/fantasy. Tons of interesting characters and plot twists. Can't wait to read more! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 5/24/2011
