You can’t always run from danger…
Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden’s Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn’t mean danger isn’t far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery—but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.
Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden’s Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.
The Exiled Queen is an epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.
I am absolutely in love with this series. I know many people say that this series is epic but it is so beyond that. I really don’t know what the right word for this series is.
I am so torn by the Amon and Han love triangle that I am now at a loss to say as to whom or if I want Raisa with either of them. Then there is Micah who I know cares for Raisa but I am not sure what he is up to. Then there is his sister who is so just annoying and I know she wants Han even though she pretends different.
There is so much going on behind the scenes in this book that it keeps you guessing on where plot is headed. I love this about the series. I feel that this book is a journey that no one should miss. I just know that once we get to the end of the series we will be happy that we went along for the ride.
