I love everything about this book. I have nothing bad to say about this book except for the stupid name that i think turns people off when they hear about it but i promise this book is one of the best. You will love the good guys, hate the bad guys and enjoy the adventure.
Although this book is written for young adults it is one that anyone can enjoy. my bother who is 18 and my father who is 59 both read it and loved it so much they each got there own copy so they could read it again.
The Seven realms books are in my top five best fantasy books ever written. The Demon King is on pare with the books "The Name of the Wind" and "Game of Thrones". If your looking for a fantasy book you could not do better then The Demon King.
I would give this book a 9.3 out of 10.
Warning: if you get the paper back version the quality of the binding is very poor so do not brake the spin or pages will fall out.
