A thousand years ago, two young lovers were betrayed--Alger Waterlow to his death, and Hanalea, Queen of the Fells, to a life without love.
Now, once again, the Queendom of the Fells seems likely to shatter apart. For young queen Raisa "ana'"Marianna, maintaining peace even within her own castle walls is nearly impossible; tension between wizards and Clan has reached a fevered pitch. With surrounding kingdoms seeking to prey on the Fells' inner turmoil, Raisa's best hope is to unite her people against a common enemy. But that enemy might be the person with whom she's falling in love.
Through a complicated web of lies and unholy alliances, former streetlord Han Alister has become a member of the Wizard Council of the Fells. Navigating the cut-throat world of blue blood politics has never been more dangerous, and Han seems to inspire hostility among Clan and wizards alike. His only ally is the queen, and despite the perils involved, Han finds it impossible to ignore his feelings for Raisa. Before long, Han finds himself in possession of a secret believed to be lost to history, a discovery powerful enough to unite the people of the Fells. But will the secret die with him before he can use it?
A simple, devastating truth concealed by a thousand-year-old lie at last comes to light in this stunning conclusion to the Seven Realms series.
Sweet Lady in chains! where should I start? Cinda Williams Chima's exceptional conclusion to the Seven Realms series is just unforgettable! The Crimson Crown excels among the sea of 2012 YA releases, and the whole Seven Realms series is just a magnificent work of YA literature that will blow every reader's mind!
In this final epic conclusion thing are more complicated than ever before. Raisa is now queen of the Fells and Han Alister is her personal bodyguard. Yet, the Bayars are still plotting against our two beloved characters and Arden is restless and ready to take, even by force, the Gray Wolf Throne. The Queendom is still divided. Wizard and Clan seems to go nowhere together and Raisa's dream to unite her people and lands remains an impossible task. And do I need to mention the romance? Good lord! The romance is so powerful, breathtaking, heartbreaking and incredible sweet and delicious! Cinda Chima knows very well how to make readers sigh! But, it is not easy. Han and Raisa were never so close yet so far at the same time.
It's unbelievable how much I got to love this series. These books have so much to offer and I recommend them to everyone seeking an outstanding fantasy read! And you know what? I got to love this story so, so much that once I read the final page, I couldn't help but tightly hug this book against me. I felt so sad and happy at the same time. I was overwhelmed by such epic finale yet sad and unwilling to let go, unwilling to say goodbye.
Somehow, I am still unable to believe that this is over... but... oh sweet Lady! it seems it's really over... sniff. I didn't wan to finish this book. I wanted to keep turning pages forever, hoping I could somehow get lost into its pages and remain in the world of the Seven Realms forever. But I reached the last page of this marvelous adventure. This mind-blowing story that gave me so many hours of enjoyment is really over. It's really sad to let go of these books, but at the same time, I am very satisfied. Cinda Williams Chima put all her heart into this series, and it shows!
So, my dear readers, if you already have read these books, you know very well what I've been talking about, if you haven't read them, then don't waste any other second and go read them asap! Finally, I'd like to thanks Cinda Williams Chima and all the people responsible for publishing the Seven Realms series. You have no idea how much I love these books that I will forever treasure in my collection! ❤
