The second book in an epic fantasy series from Cinda Williams Chima. Adventure, magic, war and ambition conspire to throw together an unlikely group of companions in a struggle to save their world.
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 soon 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.

Praise for The Exiled Queen:

‘Duty, love, expedience and revenge fuel the labyrinthine intrigues of this second entry in an epic fantasy series…Seven Realms fans will pore over every detail and beg impatiently for the sequel. Riveting.’ Kirkus
Praise for The Demon King:
‘The Demon King is a page-turner for any reader, regardless of age.’ Robin Hobb
‘Dozens of characters, complex and distinct in personality, are placed with jewel-like precision, set off by dark glints of villainy… [readers] will clamor for the sequel.’ Publishers Weekly
Praise for Cinda Williams Chima:
‘Centuries of wizardly scheming, slavery and slaughter reap apocalyptic fallout in this final volume of Chima’s trilogy… Heroes and villains alike are swayed by achingly human motivations into disastrous choices with devastating consequences…The resolution is—like the end of childhood itself—tentatively hopeful, if not triumphant. A superlative accomplishment.’ Kirkus.About the Author:
