As always, In My Mailbox is brought to you by Kristi, AKA The Story Siren.
Only one book in my mailbox this week, but I literally squealed when I saw it.
The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima
Release Date: September 28, 2010 from Hyperion Book CH
You can't always run from danger...
Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden’s Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn’t mean danger isn’t far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery—but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.
Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden's Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.
The Exiled Queen is an epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.
I know, right?! I loved The Demon King and I've been waiting for this one ever since. I'll also be hosting a stop on Cinda's blog tour at the end of September, so stay tuned for that.
