Author: Cinda Williams Chima

Cinda Williams Chima, author of The Heir series, has done it again! Her novel The Demon King is the first in her latest fantastic trilogy.


The Amulet

Once upon a time, Han “Cuffs” Allister was a thief, a street lord, and leader of the Raggers. But times have changed, and so has Han. He’s trying to live an honest life with his mother and sister, but his past still haunts him. After an encounter with a group of young wizards, Han gains possession of a power amulet—an amulet that once belonged to the Demon King, a wizard who tried to destroy the world 1000 years ago.


The Princess

Life for Raisa, princess heir of the Fells, isn’t so wonderful. She may have clean water, nutritious food and a warm bed, but she has no freedom. When she comes to the throne she wants be a different kind of Queen. She wants to stop the cruel Queen’s guards from spreading fear and brutality through the town, and instead create peace, health and happiness.


The Murders

Wearing a disguise, she ventures into town to observe the cruelty and struggles for herself. She learns that six people have recently been murdered, and the killer is still at large. People are pointing fingers at Han “Cuffs” Allistar, the feared street lord. Little do they know that Han has retired from violence. But if not Han, then who is behind the killings?


The Bottom Line

The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima is a rare find. Although the story is set around a millennium ago, it seems timeless. Both characters, Han and Raisa, are underdogs who get caught up in a whirlwind of trouble. Thank goodness the story is long because you’ll never want it to end!
