Cinda Chima does it again with another great fantasy. I have been fan girling about the Seven Realms series and I was crazy excited when I finally got a copy. The Gray Wolf Throne brings everything I love about Cinda's novels. There's that adventure, the complicated romance, and the amazing character developments.
There were these moments where I couldn't help but just hold my breath and flipping the page frantically! This really didn't help especially since I was sitting in a hair salon waiting for my turn. Although I felt like there was a bit too many pages of detail, but I was always anxious for the moment Raisa and Han would meet again. Their futures are entwined but I'm just waiting for something to happen.
Raisa comes back as bold as ever. When she returns she makes a show that the throne belongs to is her and her only. She learns that sometimes you must put duty before love and that really killed me. Raisa cares so much for the people in her queendom that I just wanted her to be selfish. Especially when it comes to Han. Han looks at everything like a game, a game that nobody knows. Every step he takes is with a purpose that I'm dying to know about.
I was satisfied with what the story gave me but I just wanted a little bit more. There were a good amount of pages but there was just a bit too many pages of detail. I didn't want the book to end because I just wanted to know everything! It is the perfect build up to an amazing ending in the next book.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5
