The Gray Wolf ThroneBy: Cinda Williams Chima
Released August 30, 2011
My rating: 5 stars
The Gray Wolf Throne has it all: magic, intrigue, lost love that shouldn’t be and yet can’t be ignored, assassins, family tragedies & sacrifices, secrets that are revealed and more that are kept and a coronation.
I LOVE this series!!! I mean in the really, really LOVE it, thought this was going to answer all my questions but only added more way!!!!
The Gray Wolf Throne picks up with Raisa still on the run after escaping from Micah Bayar and trying to get back to the Fells alive. Raisa growing into her own, and watching her journey from where she was in The Demon King to this point has been such an exhilarating and at times heartbreaking ride. Rasia is a main piece in the puzzle that as soon as you think you have it figured out, there is another twist in the plot.
While The Gray Wolf Throne is mainly about Raise’s treacherous and unexpected path to the throne, we find out more about Han and Crow’s connection. I’m usually pretty good about picking out twists and turns, though there is one with Dancer that I did NOT see coming! As with many scenarios in life, things are not always as they seem. This is one plot line that I’m sure will have to be addressed in the next book because Dancer deserves some peace and happiness too.
I really, really want Han to figure out a way to be with Raisa and I HOPE (Cinda Williams Chima, feel free to send spoilers or ease my nerves at any time) that Han has learned from his past and choses to use his powers for good. Cheesy I know, but I just love the story between Han and Raisa. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
If you have not read The Demon King or The Exiled Queen please add them to you list and then you’ll be ready for The Gray Wolf Throne!
