The Exiled Queen

The Seven Realms series began with The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima and is now continuing with The Exiled Queen. Chima is a magnificent writer that you DO NOT want to miss. Our teens thoroughly enjoy this author and this is a series that is hard to keep on the shelves. In fact, her first series, The Heir, was also incredibly popular so I just don't think you can go wrong!

This is what Disney/Hyperion has to say about the book:

Haunted by several losses, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden’s Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn’t mean that 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.

Everything changes when Han and Raisa’s paths cross, in this epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.
I am honored to be a part of this blog tour that is showcasing such a great author for our teens - keep them coming, Cinda!!
