The Gray Wolf Throne (A Seven Realms Novel)

The Gray Wolf Throne  - Cinda Williams Chima "Nearly all my life I've taken what I wanted, when I wanted it, with no thought for the future, since I wasn't likely to have one. Do you know how hard this is for me? Do you?"4.5 stars Dear lord...the feels, the feels! The goodness train keeps rolling. Lives are at stake. Love is at stake. There's danger, magic and intrigue aplenty!There are no dragons though. Ah well. I still don't know what to say about fantasy books or how to sell them. If you don't read fantasy, you're really missing out (boo to the real world all of the time!), especially when gems like Seven Realms come along. This series explains many of the reasons why I like fantasy, especially when it's done right.In fact, I don't even know if I can find one thing to complain about. Well...maybe one thing. The first 20% was ridiculously slow and I thought I'd stumbled into first book syndrome for a minute. I'll just chalk it up to the author laying groundwork for what was to come because when stuff started happening - hoo boy. Yes, I said it. HOO BOY. Raisa's braver than I am. I would have stayed in hiding. After all, there were lots of boogeymen lurking in the shadows. I don't know if I would be able to sleep if I were her. What's that? Arrows flying at my head? Yeah...I'll pass. Thanks.Everyone says the final book (number 4) is phenomenal and the best of the series, which means I'm super excited to read it. Unfortunately, I have to wait until July to use it for a challenge. *angry face*Until that time comes, I'll leave you with a Han moment...'She's tough for a blueblood,' he'd thought a lifetime ago. 'Maybe tough enough to be with me.' He hadn't considered that he might not be tough enough to be with her.Love. Love. Love. Why does fantasy turn me into an incoherent child who forgets how to review? I guess we'll never know because I have yet to figure out how to do this.*exits stage right**realizes she went the wrong way and turns around to exit on the proper side*
