Review: The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima

Publication Date: Oct 23rd 2012 
Publisher: Hyperion Books
Pages:  598
Series: Seven Realms #4
Source: Purchased
A thousand years ago, two young lovers were betrayed-Alger Waterlow to his death, and Hanalea, Queen of the Fells, to a life without love.

Now, once again, the Queendom of the Fells seems likely to shatter apart. For young queen Raisa ana'Marianna, maintaining peace even within her own castle walls is nearly impossible; tension between wizards and Clan has reached a fevered pitch. With surrounding kingdoms seeking to prey on the Fells' inner turmoil, Raisa's best hope is to unite her people against a common enemy. But that enemy might be the person with whom she's falling in love.

Through a complicated web of lies and unholy alliances, former streetlord Han Alister has become a member of the Wizard Council of the Fells. Navigating the cut-throat world of blue blood politics has never been more dangerous, and Han seems to inspire hostility among Clan and wizards alike. His only ally is the queen, and despite the perils involved, Han finds it impossible to ignore his feelings for Raisa. Before long, Han finds himself in possession of a secret believed to be lost to history, a discovery powerful enough to unite the people of the Fells. But will the secret die with him before he can use it?

A simple, devastating truth concealed by a thousand-year-old lie at last comes to light in this stunning conclusion to the Seven Realms series.

It's like what I thought, The Crimson Crown was perfect. I had nothing to complain. And the ending, really I had teary eyed. Such a beautiful ending. About Crow, I don't know if I should feel happy or sad for him. For thousand years, it's really a long long time. I'm glad that everything is clear now, no more misunderstanding. But I just wish ...never mind I guess in this case 'sometimes a dream is enough'.

I'll adore this series forever. It has everything that I've wished for in a book (romance, adventure, mystery, a wonderful world building and a perfect ending). So if you've not read this series yet, you're seriously missing out. Not many books have the ending that satisfy me but this one did and Cinda Chima has done a pretty good job at it (believable and not the too overboard happily ever after you know).  So Thank You Cinda for writing this amazing series =)
