I had picked this book up for the first time about a year ago, and I ended up not getting into it at all. It didn't help that at that time I was mostly only in the mood for strictly supernatural novels. I do have this process, however, where I never completely give up on a book. I'll wait a few months, maybe a year, and then I will pick it up again and try to read it. If it doesn't suit me then, I will wait a little longer (all the while reading other novels, trying to broaden my horizons) and try it again and again until I am able to thoroughly enjoy the novel in question. That is exactly what happened in this case. While I did not like The Demon King at first, after the second time picking it up and giving it a go, I realized that I had, in fact, fallen directly down the rabbit hole and in love with Chima's unique and diverse cast of characters. I am currently in the middle of The Exiled Queen and have designs on reading the rest of the series, however many she deigns to bestow upon us.
If it doesn't seem for you at first, try it again! It's worth it.
Rating: 4 Better than most
