During the holidays I can finally catch up with my reading. I stayed up until the wee hours reading a new book, “The Demon King” by Cinda Chima.

This fantasy novel is the first in a series about a magical world. Han Alister is the male protagonist and Princess Raisa is the female protagonist. The first “Seven Realms Novel” describes a land of wizards and clans. A thousand years ago the wizards nearly destroyed the world until the clans tamed the magic and put rules in place to control the wizards. The wizards are now trying to break the rules and challenge the clans. Han is from the bottom rung of the society and struggles to support his sister and mother. Raisa is the crown princess of the Fells. The two story lines are separate until the middle of the book. The book has a satisfying ending yet sets the reader up for the next book in the series.
