The demon kingTitle: The Demon King

Author: Cinda Williams Chima

Synopsis: One day Han Alister catches three young wizard setting fire to the sacred mountain of Hanalea. Han takes an amulet away from Micah Bayar, son of the High Wizard, to ensure the boy won’t use it against him. The amulet once belonged to the Demon King, who nearly destroyed the world a millennium ago. With a magical piece so powerful at stake, Han knows that the Bayars will stop at nothing to get it back.

Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna has her own battle to fight. She’s just returned to court after three years of riding and hunting with her father’s family. Raisa aspires to be like Hanalea, the legendary warrior queen who killed the Demon King and saved the world. But it seems that her mother has other plans for her—plans that include a suitor who goes against everything the Queendom stands for.

The Seven Realms will tremble when the lives of Han and Raisa collide in this stunning page-turner from best-selling author Cinda Williams Chima.



I saw different books in this series several times in my library and put this series on my to-read list.  When I noticed a few friends reading this series, I finally ordered the first book.

All of the books have awesomesauce covers, which caught my eye every time I saw them.

The beginning of the book was… well, eh.  It did start off slowly, but after a few chapters it picked up quickly.  And it was AWESOME!!!

It was so incredibly well-written and I was shocked!  It was completely action-packed.  I had a hard time putting it down!

I’ll definitely be reading the next book.  I can’t wait!

  1. Alister is such an awesome name. I have been trying to incorporate it into one of my own stories but haven’t found a character worthy of it yet. And I think I shall add that book to my list.


    1. Alister IS an awesome name! It seems different, you know? I used to watch this BBC show called As Time Goes By… there was a character named Alistair. And then, of course, in Harry Potter, there’s Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody.
