Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisa ana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family as good as killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.
Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it—he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron-hard will to survive—and even that might not be enough.
The Gray Wolf Throne is an epic tale of fierce loyalty, unbearable sacrifice, and the heartless hand of fate.
It comes as no surprise that this series is one of my all time favorites. It's just getting better and better and I seriously have no doubt that the last book in the series will be amazing as well =)
I don't know what to say because it'll give away too much if I go into detail about the plot or the characters. And as for the world building, what more can I say since I already mentioned how wonderful the world is in my review for the Demon King (the first book in the series). The Gray Wolf is when the story really sets in motion. The Demon King is like the introduction to the world, its history and custom and the conflicts. In The Exiled Queen we have time to learn more about the characters and what skills the characters learn that will help them later on and how they choose side when the war starts. So for this book, you're in for a treat guys. Finally the long wait is over. The table has turned and let the action begin. That's all I can say about The Gray Wolf.
I loved the characters a lot, they all met my expectation. Raisa is strong and determined. Han is smart and powerful (I'm all fangirling over him). The plot is absolutely fantastic because it's kept me up all night. Absolutely AMAZING. Pick this series up if you've not already.
