Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up–Seventeen-year-old Han Alister was once the Ragmarket street lord, skilled in thievery and lies. But now he's traveling to Oden's Ford to earn an education in the magical arts, and it will not be without peril. Despite the fact that the academy is known as “the great leveler,” there are students who have reason to hate Han, specifically the Bayar twins, Micah and Fiona, because he stole the Demon King's amulet from their father, the High Wizard. To gain the upper hand on them, Han joins forces with a mysterious wizard he met in the dream world, but what this wizard asks in return may be more than the teen wishes to give. Meanwhile, Princess Raisa has fled from an arranged marriage with Micah Bayar. She and her loyal–and beloved–soldier, Amon, are also making their way to Oden's Ford so that Raisa might receive a military education in order to become a stronger ruler. Raisa's and Han's paths have crossed in the past, but when they meet again their connection is more powerful than before. Chima has created an intricate world with a rich history, cultural prejudices, and complicated political dynamics. Her characters are multifaceted: no one is either completely evil or insipidly perfect–each has shortcomings as well as redeeming traits. Readers would do well to pick up the first book in this series before tackling this one, as there are some details that will be lost without knowledge of what transpired in The Demon King (Hyperion, 2009), but those who love a well-thought-out fantasy will enjoy this novel.Heather M.

Review

Praise for The Exiled Queen: 'Vividly drawn and lusciously executed, the Seven Realms series continues to grow in breadth and detail with this sequel to The Demon King. The story lines are intricately plotted and the characters fully realized, even as questions about truth, loyalty, and power are explored.' VOYA 'Duty, love, expedience and revenge fuel the labyrinthine intrigues of this second entry in an epic fantasy series...Seven Realms fans will pore over every detail and beg impatiently for the sequel. Riveting.' Kirkus Praise for The Demon King: 'The Demon King is a page-turner for any reader, regardless of age.' Robin Hobb 'Dozens of characters, complex and distinct in personality, are placed with jewel-like precision, set off by dark glints of villainy... [readers] will clamor for the sequel.' Publishers Weekly Praise for Cinda Williams Chima: 'Centuries of wizardly scheming, slavery and slaughter reap apocalyptic fallout in this final volume of Chima's trilogy... Heroes and villains alike are swayed by achingly human motivations into disastrous choices with devastating consequences...The resolution is-like the end of childhood itself-tentatively hopeful, if not triumphant. A superlative accomplishment.' Kirkus. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
With teens turning to vampires, angels, and whatever other craze is out there it's refreshing to read an author who's not succumbing to the popular crazy of the day.

Cinda Williams Chima is such an author.

Cinda Williams Chima is a fantastic writer who improves with each novel she writes. Her Heir series was a New York Times Children's Series Bestseller, as well as appearing on a number of distinguished lists including the USA Today and Indie Bestsellers lists. Her most recent series, The Seven Realms Series, has also received much praise and thus far includes The Demon King and The Exiled Queen.

In The Exiled Queen Chima starts the story immediately where The Demon King leaves off. (If you haven't read The Demon King yet, let me first say you should, and second that you shouldn't read the next few paragraphs, but should just know this is a great series that anyone looking for a great book should read.) For those who have read the first book in this epic series The Exiled Queen begins with all the main characters traveling to Oden's Ford to study wizardry, military training, and hide from their enemies. Where the first book sets up the story be introducing the characters to one another, the plot really thickens in The Exiled Queen. Different and strange alliances seem to develop and new and powerful characters are introduced to the story. Besides that more divisions and plots to overthrow the government and current standing are discovered as the plot thickens in this captivating book.

And yet while the plot is incredibly intricate and detailed one of my favorite aspects of The Exiled Queen are the characters that are developed in the book. Fire Dancer, a character who could by all rights have a book all of his own, is given a greater part in the story.

I dont quite know how to even begin to review this book without me going all fangirly over it. It's been quite some time since I've fallen head over heels for a series, specially for a high fantasy one. This book was magnificent... epic... glorious... monumental! I thought I loved the first one until I read this one, and gee, am I desperate to read book 3.

I am seriously awestruck by the greatness of the world Cinda created. Even though this one was in a different scenery because they traveled south, and I did miss some of the previous scenarios, it was as unbelievably atmospheric as the first. Her alternate world of fantastical greatness that left me longing to live in it once again. The characters bloomed, just like any teenager, they've been growing up and unexpectedly growing together. Every single character was fantastic and well developed.

The writing is magical and sucks you in right away. It's the kind of writing that makes me sigh, wishing every book was written half as good as this one. Cinda has quickly become one of my favorite authors. She must seriously have some kind of enchantment spell in her words. Also, the cover blew me away. You know from The Demon King what the cover represents, and it looks gorgeous. I cant wait to see the next cover.

"The Characters, the brilliantly woven plot, the magic in the storytelling, the atmospheric vividness of this wonderful world, and everything within these pages is pure perfection."- from The Demon King review.

This is one of those series that will someday become a classic. It has everything you wish for in a book and so much more. So believe me when I say: YOU NEED TO READ THIS. It is the best high fantasy book I've ever read!

NOTE: It was previously scheduled as a trilogy, but now there will be 4 books! (Squeee!)

At the end of book one, the lineage of Hayden Fire Dancer and Han Alister (Hunts Alone) was revealed. The clan had sent them to Oden's Ford to enhance their wizard abilities. Raisa ana'Marianna (a.k.a. Rebecca Morley) was on the run as well avoiding marriage to Micah Bayer, but fate had intervened to turn the tides and redirect events. Once again, these three main characters would cross their paths in Oden's Ford. While studying in this academy, Han would meet someone in Aediion who would play an important role in his life. In summation, this second installment just an entail of their time in school that started the courtship of Han and Rebecca. Frankly, I was impressed with the great thinking of this author. The development of the story was spectacular. No dull moments at all. Love it!

I am honestly really love this series. Although some elements are quite predictable (at least to me) everything remains entertaining just the same. I like that we got a change in setting for this novel. Call it the old Harry Potter lover in me, there is just something nostalgic about wizardy and school. Additionally, I am happy that we got to learn more about the many of the characters we were already introduced to.

The protagonists continue to be flawed but root-able. The world they live in on course becomes far more complicated and interesting. I like Han and Raisa both are individuals and together. I like their friends and their struggles. Han and Dancer continue to be a great dynamic. They are very two very different people, but their friendship balances them. As for Amon and Raisa, despite being a big supporter of Han and Raisa, I truly feel for these two. In another life, under different circumstances they could have been really happy together. I like Amon, and honestly if there were some other girl that I could picture Han with I might not have minded if the author put Amon and Raisa together.
