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 Crow 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 chhima 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.

THE CRIMSON CROWN by Cinda Williams Chima | Kirkus Reviews
Stomach grumbling with hunger. It’s the best feeling ever!
But their love was doomed from That feeling when you finish an incredible series but then you realize you have to say goodbye Mix the previous images and you have me. But their love was doomed from the start. Betrayed, tortured and imprisoned in an amulet, Alger was crkwn by history. He became the Demon King, and Hanalea the brave warrior that rid the world of this evil.
But history has its way of repeating itself. Raisa ana’ Marianna is now the Queen of the Fells, and her reign is more fragile than ever. She has to prevent the clans from turning against the wizards while an enemy from the south is ready to march and everyone questions the 17 years old queen’s capability of rising up to the challenge. And she eventually has to marry someone for political reasons and ignore her heart that beats for Han Alister, the only person the clans and the wizards hate with a loathing passion and may be responsible for heinous crimes.
Han Alister on the other hand is determined to marry Raisa, even if that means allying with untrustworthy people and trying to find a mythical armory with weapons of terrific potential, while everyone accuses him of murder. Will Han and Raisa manage to save the queendom without sacrificing their love in the process? We have never been graceful losers.
The Crimson Crown (Seven Realms, #4) by Cinda Williams Chima
And so, I do not intend to lose. I will fight you until the last breath leaves my body. You will not take me alive. It’s always been my favorite genre, and books like The Crimson Crown are the reason why. You can close your eyes and picture seiges and secret tunnels under the mountains and battles and illicit kisses under the brilliance of the moon.
You can weild a sword like a warrior even though you’ve never seen one up close, you can feel the magic burning in your fingers waiting to be unleashed even though you’re a mundane, you attend meetings that determine the fate of a nation you’ve never heard of, and you can do all these things because one person’s pen is more powerful than a wand.
People like Cinda Williams Chima are my heroes. In The Crimson Crown the stakes are higher than ever, and I am so proud that both Han and Raisa rose up to the circumstances. Politics, war and magicadventure and romanceThe Crimson Crown is a blend of everything you could wish for in a YA fantasy book! The characters are not good or evil, they’re always somewhere in between. Everyone wants to protect the people he or she is responsible for, from the Demonai warriors to wizards and council members and simple soldiers.
Of course you’ll hate some of them for their decisions, for messing with your heroes, but you can understand why they act this way, and for me that is a huge achievement. Take Micah, for instance.
I still can’t make up my mind about him because he tried to sink my ship many times, but I can’t label him as a villain and that’s kind of frustrating. Hating him would be easier.
They were like two pieces of a failed star, drawn together by a shared history and a memory of illicit kisses. Raisa could be suffering from it, just saying but I was pleasantly surprised by the way their relationship developed.
Raisa stood up for Han even when the entire world was against him, she put her faith in him and supported him, while Han did everything in his power, fought enemies and allies to secure a future with her.
So yes, I ended up shipping them. With butterflies and giggling and all that stuff. It was the most suitable way to finish a story that started when two lovers were torn apart a thousand of years ago. Cinda Williams Chimayou are a true sorceress! View all 19 comments. This is how you end a series: I can think of some things: Yes, this is MUCH needed.
Nothing’s worst than anticlimactic confrontations. They would never have had the same impact if not for the wait. My ship made me suffer along the way, but it paid up x No Mockingjay “I don’t know if my ship really sailed or what”. I wouldn’t now, honestly. The last book should always be the BEST of the series. If you want pages of great battles, though, look elsewhere. This is not what it is about and I’m so glad it isn’t.
Alright, it is fairly predictable, but again, I. Any book that manages to engross me like this deserves its 5 stars. Now, maybe I’m bewitched, and many readers will argue that nothing really happens and Perhaps that’s just the point. It is not so easy to bewitch me, if I dare say. Take 3 stereotypes and call it a hero? Use idiotic misunderstandings to drive them through a painful joke of character development?
You do NOT want this. Now make them grow. Here are characters who know what that means to have a backbone. Of course The Crimson Crown passed all these tests with flying colors. Damn, I’m exhausted, I just know that a huge book hangover is coming, but it was so worth it.
