The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima



Title/Author: The Gray Wolf Throne (Seven Realms #3) by Cinda Williams Chima
Publisher/Date published: Hyperion, August 30th 2011
How I got this book: received it from the publisher through NetGalley

Goodreads summary: "Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisa ana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.
Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it — he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron - hard will to survive — and even that might not be enough."

OMG! This series gets better with every book I read in it! I kid you not! EPIC FANTASY!! YAY!!

I know I've said this before, but this series is such a good example of why I love epic fantasy. These books are amazing and you know how books seem to suffer from series syndrome these days? As in: they're ALL series? THIS BOOK DOESN'T! Yes, it's a series, but it feels as though it's supposed to be. I love this.

I'm so trying not to be spoilery, so I'm not gonna say much about events, but OMG! They killed off a character I really liked! This is always a bit scary to me, because WHO WILL BE NEXT? The suspense!

Anyway, I really loved meeting up with Raisa and Han again, they are such amazing main characters and I love how their lives come together. I am so rooting for these two! I love how they both become more mature throughout the books and it's nice that they have a real backbone and are not whiny teenagers.

Seriously, this series has it all: swordfighting, romance, scheming, intrigue, beautiful dresses, MAGIC. In short: the whole package. It is EPIC. And you know what: there's another book yet unpublished. I NEED IT. Like yesterday! These books are so good, I'm sure they'll ruin the next book I read for me. They are that awesome.

Itty bitty kitty committee says: CHEEZBURGER!
My rating: 5 stars
