Cue epic power struggles. Han use to be a streetlord that stole but tried to do better for his family.

That reason may make no sense at all to the female perspective, but just because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

I listened to most of this book on audiobook because I was struggling to get into it, so if you seem to have the same problem, I recommend listening to the audiobook instead. My dislike for the book could be chalked up to the fact that I am a thirty-something adult and this is targeted at boys less than half my wilpiams, but I don’t think that’s it. The twists the story took made it even better and definitely unpredictable.

Basically every time a character was introduced they were interesting and dimensional. The natural assumption is that they will naturally meet and interact.

I really struggled with his chapters for about maybe half of the book but it definitely got easier when you understood who was who and what the hell was happening in his life.


Like in The Heroes of the Olympus series. This novel was lots of fun. But war is coming and she doesn’t know who’s the enemy, so she follows her gut and tries her best for her people, before it is too late.

I am halfway through book 2 now and any mentions of romance are still only an underscore to the main story which is far more concerned with plot, character building, world building, politics, and action than romance, IMHO. I am hoping it will turn out to be a reference I can return to needed. So why not leap right in then? I really enjoyed how well the world was described in a show me and tell me way that leant well to the overall story. I wasn’t sure what to expect from The Demon King but my expectations were pretty high considering how I went into this book comparing it to the Falling Kingdoms series.

Court life in Fellsmarch pinches like a pair of tight shoes, and Raisa feels like a cage is closing in around her. I guess he’s not it either.

The subplots merge and diverge; they tell separate stories of Han and Raisa and the hardships they face, and occasionally combine in the chance occasions when their paths meet.

It wasn’t what I expected but nonetheless, it was good.

I assume you’ve read all five Heir books? If you are a fan of fantasy this has a little bit of everything in it romance, intrigue, magic, tragedy and hope. I am emotionally invested in these characters, I actually care what happens to them! A sequel series has been announced, titled The Shattered Realms. He’s just highly inefficient. Personally, I don’t think Cinda Williams Chima did the best job explaining the overall world.

The Seven Realms

If you’re noticing a theme here Taking refuge again with the Spirit clans, Alister learns that he is actually the descendant of the villainous Demon King. The worst of these scenes is one where Han gets brutally beaten by a guard named Mac Gillen. Thank you for cimda this series such a beautiful and satisfying ending. Meanwhile, Crown Princess Raisa of the Fells, is living a crash course in politics.



This article has multiple issues. Nevertheless, this book is the perfect fit for fantasy readers as well as everyone else out there. And i can’t wait to what you will do after book 4 of dinda seven realm series that wold be awesome if you write more of it! There was nothing exciting about this beginning, nor was there anything mysterious.

But the synopsis on the back cover of my book bought as a box set, to whom it may concern was so needlessly detailed that it revealed half of the book’s plot, and pretty much gave me a rundown of all the plot twists meant to take me by surprise.

Seven Realms 4 books. Although this book did have similarities to Falling Kingdoms, it’s definitely its own separate story. Princess Mellony ana’Marianna is the younger princess of the Fells. View all 51 comments. Sep 08, I’ve tried my level best to hate this book, but unfortunately I couldn’t.
