Set in a medieval world with wizards and queens, Cinda William Chima brings back to us the epic world of Hans Alister and Raisa 'ana Marianna in the third installment of the Seven Realms novels. As Raisa tries to ascend the throne after escaping from near death at her academy, more attempts on her life are made. With each near assassination, Raisa wonders who she can trust, none more so than Hans Alister, who is meanwhile dealing with his feelings for Raisia and his chosen path by the clans of the Fells.
With more magic, political tension, and romance more than ever, The Gray Wolf Throne is an intense read from beginning to finish. Raisia is a confident female protagonist that thrives in the epic world of Chima's making, and Hans Alister is the hero we'll all be cheering for at the end of every novel. The romance is sweet and satisfying, and Chima's excellent story-telling leaves us feeling defeated, happy, confused, and downright mad with every turn of the page. I'm very excited for the next book to come out, and be prepared for the Seven Realms series to reach a climax that is intense and exhilirating.
