“This was an absolutely incredible series, with a perfect, happily-ever-after ending found in The Crimson Crown. The Seven Realms series reminds me of something akin to the offspring of Lord of the Rings and Ever After. The female lead is strong of mind, body, heart, and spirit just as the lead male role is intriguing, mysterious, kind of heart, and a true reflection of what pretty much every girl I've ever met look for in a real man lol.
Honestly, though the series may seem somewhat long due to the number of pages in each novel, this is definitely a series I encourage others to read! There is quite a lot of adventure, romance, and spy-like twists and turns. For you parents out there, please note that this also means there is a good deal of injury, death, and sexual content--so as always, I recommend you make your own decisions should your kid(s) want to read the series. I'm very happy to say that I do believe this would be a series that would appeal to young adult males as well as females, which is not something you often find in young adult literature very often. Overall, a wonderfully written story that I thoroughly enjoyed diving into from beginning to end!”
“It wrapped the other three books nicely and it had a lot of political intrigue which I like but I think it may have lacked in intensity when it came to the siege of the castle... it didn't seem quite as scary and extreme as it should have been for me to give the book a five. ”Hannah N wrote this review Friday, April 19, 2013.

“*MAJOR SPOILER ALERT*
Every time I finish a series that I really love, I get really emotional. I have been with these characters from the beginning. We all were. So it’s hard to get them go… Chima said in her blog, that there might be more books for the Seven Realms series. A part of me is ecstatic because like I said, I am not ready to let Han, Raisa and the others go yet. On the other hand, I’m terrified because more books mean more problems for our favourite characters and I think that they deserve the happiness that they fought so hard to get.
The Crimson Crown did not disappoint me at all. It was everything I had expected and more. Han and Raisa grew up so much. Han changed from the lost, bitter former street lord to a man who knew what he wanted and would do anything to get it. His trust issues were also address here. I hate how almost everyone is accusing him of crimes he didn’t commit. Why can’t they move on? Han changed. He is not the person that he was before. No wonder that he has trust issues. His confession to Raisa is one of the most powerful scenes of this series. I admit, I cried. I love how he’s starting to trust his friends more and more. I JUST LOVE HAN SO MUCH.
As for Raisa, how can anyone not love her? She was not the same slightly spoiled princess we met in The Demon King. She was so cunning and witty and sassy and bad-ass! I love how she believed in Han even with all the evidence against him. She never backs down from anything (which is both good and bad) but that’s what makes her so strong.
As for the supporting characters, my three favourites: Amon, Cat and Dancer were bad-ass as always. One of the reasons why I hate love triangles is because in the end, I know that one of the characters is going to get hurt. I accept the fact that Amon and Raisa can never be together romantically. Raisa also accepted this fact and moved on with Han. I just want Amon to be happy okay? He deserves to be happy. I know a lot of people like Micah and I understand why, he is a great character. He is not evil like his father and he really cares for Raisa. I knew from the very first book, that there was something fishy about Nightwalker. I was glad to find that I was right. I was heart-broken for Bird though. She was her own person to the last moment. DAMN YOU NIGHTWALKER. I’m also glad that Gavan Bayar got what he deserved.
I love how Han and Raisa’s relationship mirrors Algar and Hana’s. Algar and Hana’s story was heart-breaking but I like how Chima emphasised ‘the victors write history’ because it is a real life fact. I hope that Han and Raisa can somehow tell the truth about The Demon King. The plot was fantastic with romance, suspense, action, plot-twist that I never saw coming etc. I JUST LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK AND THIS SERIES OKAY? THE ENDING WAS PERFECT AND SO SWEET THAT IT MADE ME SMILE THROUGH MY TEARS. THIS SERIES WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART. *SOBS* (I’m sorry, I’m just a mess of emotions right now)

“Semi-predictable ending made semi-convoluted. More focused on Han than the previous books. Plays on the mistrust between Han and Raisa, but this got increasingly annoying as the book progressed.”Silence wrote this review Thursday, January 17, 2013.
