I really do not read as much as I would like, so when I do its kind of a big deal. I started reading The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima, because its really my cup of tea. I love fantasy its my genre. I am really particular about it too. I could not put this down for anything, I was totally immersed in the Seven Realms. Seven has to be a special number because its often the total number of Kingdoms and Realms, anyway. I just really fell in love with this story, the characters, and the world. I loved Rasia she was beautiful, and so brilliant. Just what I crave in a heroine, and I found myself becoming fond of everyone in one way or another. I was invested in everything that these kids were. I had to keep reading, I had to know it was vital. I was an Amon girl even though from previous readings I do love me a Queen's Thief, Hans was great, I was just rooting for Amon it was way more forbidden, and also from previous readings *ahem* one Maria V Snyder and Kristen Cashore, I love me an honorable soldier/spy/bad-ass. Also the wizardry was there, but it wasn't chalked full of spell castings, and battle stances. The characters seemed way more important, they were very layered people. I immediately read The Exiled Queen, and stayed up until the wee hours of the morning, but it was so worth it.
