And wiilliams NO mistake Re-read I’m bumping this one up a star! I can’t do that with this review as I only read four chapters of the book before setting it down, therefore I will be giving you my case as to why no one should ever read it by, instead, using examples from other books, and to be completely fair these books will be of the same genre: They nearly shared a romantic relationship, williwms that quickly ended when Raisa learned of the Bonding, but they remained best friends throughout the series.

Nancy Werlin author of Impossible.


She is said to be very beautiful, with a waist a man can put his two hands around. Return to Book Page. For more of my reviews, please visit: They are still very closet, and there is a steadfast romantic attraction that follows the two of them throughout several of the books, but the difference in their stations, and the bonding between xhima queen and the captain of the guard, keeps them apart.

What kind of job? I can sum this book up for you in one word. View all 9 comments.

The Demon King (Seven Realms, #1) by Cinda Williams Chima

Thanks of the books! Sabriel leaves her school to head from the world of technology to the world of magic where she is from to rescue him.


The narrator is quite good! Thanks for accepting my request, and for the comment! Who is this book about?

THE DEMON KING by Cinda Williams Chima | Kirkus Reviews

She’s stubborn and acts like an entitled sixteen year old princess but I really like how proactive she is as a character, not allowing herself to remain chiima naive princess or to turn a blind eye to anything – I can really see her developing wonderfully through the series.

Seriously, that was unexpectedly surprising. There are, we are told, no survivors. I like all of the characters at this point! I feel mostly indifferent about both of them. I didn’t expect to enjoy this book so much but I ended up loving it!

No compelling characters or events. The other boys are wizards, who have started a magical forest fire supposedly so that Princess Raisa and her mother can kijg upland deer. View all 51 comments.

He has been accused of cimda murders and must go on the run. It is my opinion that a Dejon Adult novel should be something that not only children but adults should enjoy as well. Buddy read with Jia! In Brian Jacques’ Redwall by chapter 4 which, by the way is only ten pages into the book You’ve been introduced to the villain, the protagonist, the love interest and the mentor.

I’m sure that’s Uhh I can not wait to read the rest of this series! I’ll be honest, I did consider doing it a few times, but noooooo, I had to give it a chance.

Hanson Alister, Han for short, is the first main character that the reader meets.

At last, I was very wrong to consider it was boring. I don’t know about you, but when characters face awful events, I expect to feel something, and sadly I didn’t.

Where was all of that in The Demon King? Initially, the book felt it was dragging every ounce of patience and tolerance within me but I kept reading because I didn’t want to leave it unread and lose a chance for getting to know what exactly made some of my friends like this book. Take my word for it. I know I was. I was supposed to really enjoy it. Sabriel is contacted by a being from Death that gives her her father’s sword and necromancer’s bells, giving her a message that he is trapped by one of the Greater Dead.


I still think it’s worth it for the rest of it because the story and character backgrounds and development are really strong, but if you wanted to avoid female-POV romance elements completely then I would wait on this one until you’re in the mood to have a bit of tolerance for it.

She’s just returned to court after three years of freedom in the mountains—riding, hunting, and working the famous clan markets. I may be coming to your signing at the Stark County Library on Monday.

You just KNOW that these two events are going to coincide and go horribly wrong, and you can feel anticipation building with each page that you turn. She tries her best to warn Queen Marianna, her mother, about forthcoming threats on the kingdom but her mother turns a blind eye towards it. He’s still partially embroiled in the life, but yeah.

It starts off a bit slow but once the story picks up, you won’t be able to put this book down! Apologies to everyone who thought I could complete an entire review without a Star Wars reference.
