The Demon King
Reformed thief Han Alister will do almost anything to eke out a living chiima his family. One day, Han and his clan friend, Dancer, confront three young wizards setting fire to the sacred mountain of Hanalea.
Chjma takes an amulet from Micah Bayar, son of the High Wizard, to keep him from using it against them. With a magical piece that powerful at stake, Han knows that the Bayars will stop at nothing to get it back. Meanwhile, Raisa ana’Marianna, princess heir of the Fells, has her own battles to fight. Raisa wants to be more than an ornament in a glittering cage. But her mother has other plans for her The Seven Realms tremble when the lives of Hans and Raisa collide, fanning the flames of the smoldering war between clans and wizards.
Demon King is a wonderful blend of world building and mythology couched in histories. Each one fully developed with layers of backstory, strong emotions, flaws, and desires. Chima has built a world so rich in background and enriched with characterization that you feel immersed after reading only a few pages. Long ago there was only one realm, broken by the famed Demon King in his quest for magical ciinda.
Now there are Seven Realms. The Clans, the wizards, and the humans inhabit the Fells under an uneasy truce because of the Naeming, enforced by the blooded queens of the Fells. Something subtle is trying to shift the balance of peace, hoping to topple the Fells into civil war.
Caught in the center of the shifting powers are Han and Raisa. Han is a former street thief and gang leader. Stuck in a vemon situation, all he wants to do is survive. Raisa is a headstrong princess who is hungry for real world experiences.
One chance encounter may well change the fate of both of their worlds. What I got was a read worth devouring in a single sitting, characters that lived with their flaws and it made them richer.
I craved the next book. Heck, I read all three in less than a week. While I want to give Demon Kking 5 stars, I have a serious problem doing that for any book with a cliffhanger ending. I give Demon King 4 out of 5 stars. If you want an immersive read, pick it up and prepare to lose sleep. Very good series with strong characters and tons of intrigue. Avoid if you are looking for action packed books with minimal descriptions. Book mainly followed the building up of the two POV characters.
The minor conflicts kept the story moving. I thought the end dragged slightly with the travelling and descriptions. This was another characterization book and the weakest in the series IMO. It mainly focused on the training and schooling of the POV characters. The book felt slower to me. Action starts picking up in book 3.
The “About” on the Kindle edition of this book gives a pretty big spoiler imo. I spent the first portion of this book worrying about it and trying to figure out how the timelines would align. I ended up disappointed with how the aftermath of this scene played out. I was really hoping for the two characters to travel together for a bit. Besides this the book was really well written. Probably tied with book 4 as the best books in the series.
The culminating book met expectations. The first two books he seems like a submissive husband and lets a wizard walk all over him and his life. The Averill in books would of killed Bayar instantly. Here are two, but i have left out other more spoiler ones. What happened on the roof with Micah? The ending with Micah was unsatisfactory.
They follow two separate characters going about their This book and its sequels are amazing. They follow two separate characters going about their lives, primarily within three circles. There’s the Castle and the artistocracy, where princess Raisa lives; Then there are the slums, where former Ragger streetlord Han lives; finally there are the mountain dwelling naturalistic clans in the mountains, where both Raisa and Han have fostered for large chunks of their lives.
Raisa struggles with the restrictions placed on her as princess returning to court after three years of comparative freedom within the clans.
Her name day approaches, when she will become eligible for marriage and while she does not wish to be wed, others pressure her to think for the good of the kingdom.
Meanwhile, Han struggles with survival now that he has left ‘the life’ as leader of a gang of youth on the streets of Ragtown.
The Seven Realms – Wikipedia
Nothing ever really goes his way. Naturally the story of these two entwine, but I won’t spoil any details. Needless to say it is an amazing story and the characters are very lovable. You’ll feel disappointed each time the POV switches between our leads, just to get engrossed again and feel the same the moment it switches over.
The marriage of their two stories into one is beautifully done, without drawn out cliche or obvious manhandling of our protagonists. All feels organic cyima well crafted.
This series of four books is among my favorite. Listen, it is rare that I am happy with a book. They’re all the same, you know?
