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.Read more ›
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!)
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.
