THE DEMON KING, by Cinda Williams Chima

A princess and a gang lord. The fate of the world in their hands...

Han is a gang leader.  Raisa is a princess.  They should never have met, but they do … and the result is more shocking than either would ever have dreamed.  A thousand years ago, a disaster nearly broke their world apart; since then, wizards have been kept separate, their powers chained.  A series of events leads Han to an amulet of great power – little does he know how that power will change his life.  Raisa, who wants to be more than a pretty face on the throne, gets a street education that sets into motion a chain of events that leads her into a life of exile.  The threads of the two stories weave in and out, and lead to an ending that will make you wish the sequel was available right now!  (And yes, I really, really liked this story!  The entire series is totally recommended for kids who aren’t afraid of a fat fantasy book. Read them in this order: The Demon King, The Exiled Queen, The Gray Wolf Throne, The Crimson Crown.)
