Book: The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima
This story is set in world where magic is a powerful presence. There is clan magic, tied to the earth and used for healing. There is wizard magic that must be controlled and channeled with talismans. There is also a complicated and dark history that binds these magics together. And, of course, a bunch of secret baddies that are working to break this whole peace agreement wide open.
Enter our two heroes. We’ve got Han, a reformed thief trying to make an honest living to support his family. He’s street smart, tough, and has a way of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. We’ve also got Raisa, the princess heir who is trying to be more than just another empty headed princess. She’s tougher than her small stature would indicate, independent, and willing to do what it takes to make her kingdom a better place for all its citizens.
There are secret identities, court intrigue, and several exciting adventures. And this is just the first in the series! We really enjoyed this title and think you will too. We hope you can join us for an evening of discussion.
The Demon King is available in both our print and downloadable collections.
