The Gray Wolf Throne Review

528 pages
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. 

 As the third book in the series I have to admit this one didn't impress me as much as the others. However, it was still an excellent addition to the story. The first half of the book was completely fast paced and full of all sorts of action as Raisa rushes home to save her throne. The second half dealt more with court intrigues and figuring out how to find out who is behind the assassination attempts. I still love Raisa as a character because even though she is strong we still get to see her vulnerable moments especially around Han. Han impressed me with his ability to fit in no matter where he goes. I finished this novel quickly and I was so disappointed that it ended so I can't wait until the next and final one in the series. The ending definitely left me wondering and wanting more. I recommend this to those who have read the first two in the series otherwise you might be a little lost.
