Teen Book Review

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

Rating 4

Reviewed by Maggie, Spencer Staff

Han Alister, former street gang leader, and Princess Raisa, future queen, have very little in common on the surface.  Except for the fact that they both seem to be battling the same magical family, the Bayars.  Brutal murders of street gang members and a kidnapping of the princess all ensue as Raisa and Han collide in this great high fantasy novel.

I REALLY enjoyed this book.  I quickly went straight on to reading The Exiled Queen (bk 2) and am almost finished with The Gray Wolf Throne (bk 3).  If you enjoyed Graceling, The False Prince, Girl of Fire and Thorns, or The Thief then I feel pretty confident that you would enjoy this series as well!
