One thought on “The Demon King

  1. Katerina

    Hanalea s blood and bones, I just found a new obsession Wow It s been a while since the last time I read YA fantasy, and I d almost forgotten why I love this genre so much The Demon King certainly had its flaws, but it was so riveting and bewitching that I lost the X Factor final last night in order to finish it and I suspect I m going to spend the following days lost in this series, with coffee and ice cream as my sole companions Burn you social life And by fun, I mean books Han always seemed t [...]

    The Demon KingBy Cinda Williams ChimaA Review by Eric AllenBefore I begin, I must say that I was not able to finish this book I only got four chapters in before I couldn t take it any This book fails on every level possible and imaginable Let me count the ways No Hook No plot No tension No conflict No compelling characters or events No protagonist No antagonist No emotion No color No life No story No desire to read ANY further No refunds DAMMIT My dislike for the book could be chalked up to the [...]

  3. Mikee Andrea (ReadWithMikee)

    Wow I m really surprised to say that this book blew me away I only decided to pick this series up because I have the Flamecaster on my shelf and I didn t know that it was actually a follow up to the Seven Realms series I wasn t sure what to expect from The Demon King but my expectations were pretty high considering how I went into this book comparing it to the Falling Kingdoms series Although this book did have similarities to Falling Kingdoms, it s definitely its own separate story.One of the t [...]

    Probably even like 4.5 5 starsI was not expecting to like this book as much as I did I just got it on a whim and thought this will be fun And it was fun, and hecka addicting I loved the world building and the story, but mostly I just loved getting lost in a fantasy book without a lot of complicated magic systems and things to keep track of It was so fun to just lose myself in it.It took a bit for me to get into at first but once I was in I WAS IN TOO DEEP.Definitely loved this and will be conti [...]

  5. Samantha

    This book lays a good foundation for the rest of the series, but it definitely drags at times and the story doesn t really get started until the end I love the protagonists They have a ton of room for growth My biggest complaint was the abundance of love interests, but at least it wasn t the main theme of the story Just a pet peeve of mine I plan to continue with the series and I m excited to see where it goes.

  6. Robin (Bridge Four)

    Re Read with my crew at Buddies Books Baubles starting Feb 22, 2016One of the best things about this book for me is that in YA usually the MCs meet and instantly it is all about them being together Raisa is 15 almost 16 so I really like that the author has her meeting different boys she has quite a few suitors and playing the field a little She doesn t just fall in love with the first of second man boy to show an interest in her The same goes for Han.he gets a little kissing time too with other [...]

  7. Anne

    Re read 2016I m bumping this one up a star LOVED IT But I m seeing a lot of mixed bad and or DNF reviews from friends, and it suddenly strikes meHmmm Well, I will admit that this is a pretty slow book in the beginning In fact, it takes quite a few chapters to get to anything that I would personally consider even remotely interesting I m thinking that, perhaps, the reason I enjoyed this so much the second time around was because I knew where everything was headed.And make NO mistake It is headed [...]

  8. Alienor ✘ French Frowner ✘

    Here went my night Yes, you read correctly Despite my reading slump that drove me to DNF books that I m comfortable with yesterday, despite today being my last day of vacations and as usual busy as hell, despite the objective flaws of The Demon King, I couldn t stop reading for the life of me, and closed my reader at 6am pretty exhausted.Worst is, I m fighting the urge to start The Exiled Queen right now, and I can count on the finger of one hand the number of times it happened with a YA Fantas [...]

    Oh wowoh wow oh wow oh wow CAN I CONFESS THAT THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE FANTASY OF EVER Because I am confessing This is not a drill peoples THIS BOOK IS AMAZING It has everything I want and love in an epic fantasy Seriously the whole time I was just sitting there gasping, WAS THIS BOOK WRITTEN FOR ME OMG Epic Things This Book Has That Makes My Small Heart Pleased It has a Matriarchy and a Queendom YES THAT S RIGHT FOLKS WOMEN RULE Although there still is puzzling sexism despite this, but pfft, I [...]

    Three words fa, reaking, awesome Now I remember why I love fantasy so much Especially a kick butt high fantasy like this one.Chima has masterfully created an intriguing world, with a cast full of memorable characters.The chapters somewhat alternate between Han and Raisa Divulging the depth of each character and the world around them, presented in their own P.O.V I love when authors do this I like that connection you get when the story is presented in this format I am emotionally invested in thes [...]

  11. Cait • A Page with a View

    THIS WAS SO FUN 4.5 stars because it does take a bit to get the story moving but hang in there because it becomes SO good This is easily one of my new favorite YA fantasy worlds The worldbuilding really took the time to establish the history of the queendom s bloodline, the wizards, and the clans, so the whole series is set up really well now.The story is mainly told through the POVs of Princess Raisa and an ex streetlord kid named Han I wasn t a huge fan of him at the beginning because his stor [...]

  12. Cece ❀Rants, Raves &Reviews❀

    I love this book specfically its POVs We have the village idiot and the spoiled princess Except thats just the surface There is so much to them and i think i loved how their sterotypes were used against them The village idiot with mysterious cuffs on his arm that have symbols that literally no ome gets Maybe if you knew how to use them, you could I don t know shoot flames from the palms of your hands Han was thinking he was just as likely to shoot flames from his rear end Both have their own st [...]

  13. Amy

    THE DEMON KING was a perfect maelstrom of practically everything I love in a book Court intrigue, captivating characters, intricate plotting, enticing romances, and brilliant world building coalesce to deliver the best high fantasy story EVER The characters in Chima s story are extremely well developed each had their own unique personality that distinguished him or her as an individual entity, subsequently allowing me to easily love or hate them In the case of Han Alister LOVE Han is a reformed [...]

    SPOILER FREE REVIEW I really enjoyed this book It wasn t what I expected but nonetheless, it was good This book is so slow at the beginning It picks up roughly after chapter 12 13, or page 200 or so It s definitely a build up book There s so much world building in this book it s crazy, and I have to say, it was one of my favorite parts about this book I listened to most of this book on audiobook because I was struggling to get into it, so if you seem to have the same problem, I recommend listeni [...]

  17. Nouf *LostinFantasy*

    I didn t expect to enjoy this book so much but I ended up loving it The world building, setting, and characters were everything I look for in a fantasy book I guess you can say this first book in the series was pretty much 500 pages of introducing and setting up the plot But I was still completely wrapped up in the characters adventures and how everything came together in the end The dark history between the wizards and the clans and the line of queens yes, it s a queendom is what shapes the plo [...]

  21. Caitlin

    Buddy read with Jia Wow I had high hopes for this series and I was not at all disappointed It was such a promising start to what I know will be an amazing series This book was highly intimidating because it was high fantasy and the chapters were 20 pages long I ll admit, I did struggle through the first 5 10 chapters because it was a lot of world building and characters to process and learn about However, when I sat down and really dedicated my time to the book, I flew through it and adored it I [...]

  22. Chelsea ❤Peril Please❤

    He called her Briar Rose, he said, because of her beauty And her many thorns.It s not often that I find a YA fantasy series that enraptures me the way this one did It s no secret that I am very picky when it comes to reading these, as well Needless to say, I ve been side eyeing this series for FOREVER, yet I have never taken the plunge I ve mentioned it to a couple of my closest friends and have felt there was something special about it for a long while So why not leap right in then I don t know [...]

  23. Stacia (the 2010 club)

    I have the hardest time reviewing fantasy books I m not sure why this is Maybe because so much is constantly going on, it leaves me a bit stumped as to how to summarize everything in an eloquent fashion.Fans of traditional fantasy, whether it be adult or YA, will most likely appreciate this series The Demon King read very much like a slightly scaled down version of a good adult epic fantasy not much was held back for the sake of a younger audience.From the good to the evil characters, I found mo [...]

    History, Mari muttered, as if she d overheard his thoughts Why do we need to know what happened before we were born So hopefully we get smarter and don t make the same mistakes again ____________________________________________This book was really good Don t let my three stars dampen your spirit for reading this book The Demon Kingwas an enjoyable read I cannot say that this book completely blew me away but it was surprising and interesting Hunts Alone aka Hans Alister was an amazing protagonist [...]

    What an excellent start for a YA Fantasy series This has been on my tbr list for a very long time The only reason I got around to reading it is because, the author recently released a new series Flamecaster set in the same world, that has been getting amazing reviews, and everyone recommends reading this earlier series first Which I didn t mind, because I ve always wanted to read this series and I m always game for YA Fantasy series.I was seriously not let down You ve got a great world building [...]
