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 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.

For a much more detailed review, check out this book on my blog!

This is a fantastic, interesting, engaging read! You must read this one if you like the first book, maybe even if you didn’t because this is where things really start happening. A great read! and one of my new favorites!

Excellent follow-up to 'The Demon King', this time following protagonists Han and Raisa to wizard and battle school respectively. Chima continues to write really interesting, complex characters, resisting simple black-and-white characterizations in favor of something more grey and intriguing. This universe is incredibly well-built, and features some refreshing diversity in terms of race and sexual orientation, too. This is really top-notch YA fantasy, highly recommended.

This book was just as good as the first if not better while this book had all the dark aspects that made me fall in love with the first book the new installment has added a love dynamic to the story that has me drooling at the mouth for the next book. 9/10

2nd book in the Seven Realms series- a great teen epic fantasy series, so far. (liking them better than the Heir series). Carries on from first novel, The Demon King, finishes- Raisa and Amon, Han and Dancer, the Bayar wizards... Can hardly wait to read the next. Good characters, some surprizes, enough detail to be interesting, but not too much to overwhelm.

Wow oh wow. This book was even better than the first. I'm a huge fan of dramatic irony and vengeance and this book had both.

I cannot wait to read on.

I love this book! This is probably my favourite in the series or the fourth. I haven't read the fourth yet but I'm assuming it'll be very well written. Han is my favourite character!
