(Technically the series is called Seven Realms, but hey, that worked better for the title!)
What a series!! If you’ve been around the book community a while and like fantasy in any small way, there’s a good chance you will have heard about these books. And there’s a really good reason why- they’re amazing!!
I know I am not the first to say this, but I *loved* this series! It was top quality! The story was exciting, the romance twists at your insides and the characters sparkle.
Chima was great at creating a sense of dread. I was nervous to my core when I was reading them- at times it was literally torture. This was me:
As the series went on the tension only got stronger- making me less able to read while I waited for the next one and the next one and the next- until I had devoured them all!
Luckily for me the ending was more than I could have hoped for! I pretty much ran around screeching: “I’m so happy!!!”
I did like the world-building- even if it wasn’t overly complicated- it was still intriguing- especially with the reliance on the history that had gone before.
The only downside is that it’s predictable enough to guess all the plot twists and I knew how the whole thing was going to go- but in the end it was so utterly awesome that I simply didn’t care! I really, really cannot recommend this enough!
Rating: 5/5 bananas
So- have you read this series? If your answer was no- what are you waiting for?!
