#188 - "The Exiled Queen" by Cinda Williams Chima


You can't always run from danger...

Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden's Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn't mean danger isn't far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery-but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.

Meanwhile, Princess Raisa
ana'Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden's Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.

The Exiled Queen is an epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction. 

My rating: 5 of 5

My thoughts on the book:
I loved The Demon King & I hoped that I'll love this one too and I did! I would say that I loved it more, but it's just that they don't feel like 2 books, but like one long book, so I love them both equally! I just don't know how I'll wait until next year for the sequel... I want it now! :) Anyway, I absolutely love the series! I loved the story, I loved all the characters. I like how Cinda Williams Chima can make you like all the characters - the bad ones & the good ones. Everything was just really great, I just couldn't put it down & as I said, I want more! This one is now one of my favorites & I highly recommend it!
