    • Abstract:
      Summary: Times are hard in the mountain city of Fellsmarch. Reformed thief Han Alister will do almost anything to eke out a living for himself, his mother, and his sister Mari. Ironically, the only thing of value he has is something he can't sell. For as long as Han can remember, he's worn thick silver cuffs engraved with runes. They're clearly magicked—as he grows, they grow, and he's never been able to get them off. The thrilling debut in a new high fantasy trilogy, from New York Times bestselling author, Cinda Williams Chima (The Dragon Heir).

Horn Book Magazine Reviews 2010 #1

It's hard for former street lord Han Alister to support his mam and sister now that he's left gang life, so when he gets hold of a magical amulet, he keeps it, thinking it might be worth something. When gang members show up murdered, he tries to clear his name, only to find that the murderers are after the amulet. Meanwhile, heir-to-the-throne Princess Raisa's sixteenth name-day approaches, when she becomes eligible to be courted -- strategic marriage is her duty, but she anticipates the long season of flirtation nonetheless. Readers follow the highly likable characters in plot strands that touch and separate and re-form, creating an ambitious web of politics and intrigue. The action starts slowly but develops unstoppable momentum as the book progresses. Despite their complexity, the story lines hang together strongly and propel the characters through discoveries regarding the truth of the thousand-year-old tales of Queen Hanalea, vanquisher of the Demon King, the wizard who caused a magical catastrophe called the Breaking. Whether reveling in the fairy-tale-romance details of Raisa's coming-of-age party, evoking life on the street, or inventing a complex clan culture, Chima delivers a high-interest, high-action story already racing toward a sequel.

PW Reviews 2009 September #4

Princess Raisa, heir to the Queendom of the Fells, chafes against the forced royal marriage in her future. Trying to support his family with odd jobs, Han can't decide what life he wants from among the three he's juggling—and past mistakes made when he was a gang leader keep surfacing to haunt him. Additionally, Han finds himself the unwitting owner of an ancient talisman taken from the land's most powerful wizards, while Raisa faces the political maneuverings of those supposedly bound to serve her family. In elegant prose, Chima (the Heir series) constructs a complex but comprehensible world, where wizards and clans coexist in an uneasy and restrictive arrangement, brokered after the destructive actions of the Demon King, 1,000 years earlier. With full-blooded, endearing heroes, a well-developed supporting cast and a detail-rich setting, Chima explores the lives of two young adults, one at the top of the world and the other at the bottom, struggling to find their place and protect those they love. An auspicious start to the planned Seven Realms trilogy. Ages 12–up. (Oct.)
