Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima


Definitely do NOT read this post if you have not yet read the previous Seven Realms series by Chima. This is the first book of a sequel series and there will be spoilers. I would highly suggest that you read the Seven Realms series because it is awesome! For those of you who have read it, read on!

Flamecaster is the first novel in Chima’s Shattered Realms series. It follows Ash aka Adrain sul’Han, the son of Han Alister and Queen Raisa ana’Marianna, a gifted healer on a revenge mission.

In the story we meet many new characters and are reacquainted with old ones as Han travels to Arden to face the king his mother’s family has been battling for generations.

We are introduced to a second main character, Jenna Bendelow, part of the resistance and she too, ends up in Arden where she meets Han.

I don’t want to go into much more detail than this, but it’s safe to say that this was an excellent read. It was fantastic to be able to return to the world of the Seven Realms, and to follow the stories of the next generation as they cope with war, loss, plots and love. I could barely put this one down! Definitely worth the read if you were a fan of the Seven Realms series!
