Overview

Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisa ana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.

Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it—he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron-hard will to survive—and even that might not be enough.

The Gray Wolf Throne is an epic tale of fierce loyalty, unbearable sacrifice, and the heartless hand of fate.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Han Alister has lost so much already, but nothing prepares him for the discovery that he will make about his beloved friend Rebecca Morley. This dark revelation leaves him in a place where every decision places him at odds with others and often with himself. A lynchpin Seven Realms installment.

Benjamin Ruby

Children's Literature - Shirley Nelson
In Book Three of the "Seven Realms" series, Raisa is traveling undercover as she flees assassins on her way home to reconcile with her mother, Queen Marianna of the Gray Wolf throne. She narrowly escapes death travelling through the snowy mountain pass and is rescued by Han Alister, who knew her as Rebecca Morley back in school. When Han learns her true identity, he feels betrayed but continues to travel with her to the mountain lodges where they join Raisa's father and grandmother. Arriving safely after another attack on Raisa's life, they learn that Queen Marianna is dead and Raisa's sister is being groomed to claim the throne. She is being manipulated by a powerful family seeking to gain power by spreading the word that Raisa has been killed. Under the guidance of her father and grandmother, Raisa plans a triumphant return to the city where she will claim her true birthright as heir to the Gray Wolf Throne. While this fantasy may be read as a standalone book, the complicated relationships of the characters and the appearance of the spirits of former queens as gray wolves may be confusing to the reader who has not read the first two books in the series.

    Solid third volume

    The third volume of the Seven Realms series, it really felt like Chima finally has settled into the story of Han and Raisa. Han must finally face the moment we've all waited for - when he discovers his friend and love interest Rebecca is in fact the Princess Heir Raisa of the Queendom of the Fells.

    Overwhelmingly, though, this is Raisa's volume. Friction and violence increase as the people trying to keep Raisa out of the way increase their efforts.

    Will they succeed?

    Of course not. This is a fantasy series, and we all know the heroine and hero ultimately will prevail to win the day. Right? Maybe. Not everything will go to plan as Raisa returns home in this volume. The action and pace of the third volume are more consistent, giving the reader a solid return for their investment in the series. My biggest complaint, and perhaps this isn't fair since the principal character is a sixteen year old girl, is the complete inconsistency in her feelings towards the men in her life. Its difficult to tell who we should be rooting for as a love interest when Raisa herself changes gears every few pages, from mooning over Amon, to Nightwalker, to Micah and Han.

    If you've read the other two volumes of this series, then you deserve this volume. The first half of the book is fast paced (I read the first 300 pages in a day) and will keep you on your toes. The second half of the book slows down, right about the point we realize that we are being set up for the fourth book. Although I think this was the best volume of the series so far, I'm only going to give it four stars - my socks weren't blown off, just mildly uncurled at a few points. I would have liked more from Han, and found the one chapter from Amon's perspective both refreshing and unexpected since no other non Han/Raisa character ranked their own chapter.

    Can't Wait!

    The first two books in this series were amazing! I'm sad that the third won't be coming out until September, but I know it's going to be awesome; it's going to be worth the wait. This is a must-read series... I barely put the first two down! So psyched!!

    My review.

    I came upon this series by accident. I had seen the cover o the books and well, i judged it by the cover. I was still mourning the loss of the previous series i was reading coming to an end. This series/book really gipped me. I was enthralled by the way it just seemed to flow. I cant believe that this was as good as it is. After I read the first i couldnt stop myself from reading the second. The love problems really made it enticing, although trying to find out what genre it is was a little difficult. Its more like a reality show. Still a great book. It wasa refreshing change to have something out of the ordinary. I hope that she will continue writing these books. The third was great and left alot of questions, the perfect "cliff hanger". I am glad to have come upon a series that wasnt finished so that i may have something to look forward to. All in all, great book and series.

    Over?

    I devoured all three books in this series, absolutely love them. I became so enveloped in the world of the seven realms, that I will have a difficult time adjusting to real life. The only problem is how much is left unresolved. I wish barnes and noble would make it easier to track down books within a series.

    3/4 books read and 1/4 books left to conqure.

    This book was a great third instalment to the series, but it was still missing that "it" factor that makes a classic. In the last two books Ms. Chima roughly balanced the amount of chapters following the main characters, but in book three the female role dominated the majority of the book. It was refreshing reading the two chapters that followed different minor characters and it gave a creative touch to end this instalment. Unfourtuantly the plot in this book was way to transparent and baisically gave away the whole plot for the last book (save the subplots and maybe the ending). The third book didn't have much action and none leaving the reader on edge about the characters future. Most writers tend to keep the deaths of important characters for the last couple of books (in this case the very last). I hope Ms. Chima is not afraid of making her readers cry and finds her inner George R. R. Martin. I have high expectations for the last novel in the seven realms series and that it will be an action packed, tearjerking, unpredictable, and masterpeice of a finale!

    Continuing in the same manner leading up to this book, this seri

    Continuing in the same manner leading up to this book, this series branches in intrigue and plot development. It keeps getting better. Everyone we have come to love in this series is struggling in some way, whether fighting for their lives or fighting for love and recognition. We really do not know who to trust just as the characters themselves.
    It is a great story and the characters are growing and maturing as they struggle with the challenges that afflict them.
    (I believe that people should be aware that there is a same sex relationship though very minor and glossed over, it is still there) 
    I am anxiously waiting for the next one to come from the library.
