The Exiled Queen is book two in the Seven Realms Novel series. Book one is called The Demon King. I read book one last year and really enjoyed it. Hans is a street thief, the head of a street gang, but who really wants to do more with his life. Then there is the Princess who Hans meets as Rebecca. It is a fantasy novel but set in a middle ages type world with wizards and magic. I was excited when the second came out. The Princess has run away from home and is disguising herself as a normal woman and heading to school to become a soldier. Not the first place you would look for a lost princess, so a good place to hide. Hans has gone to wizard school right across the river, and they meet up again. Hans still doesn't know that Rebecca is really his soon to be queen, and their friendship grows until both are forced to leave at the end. Anxiously awaiting book three. . . This is a very good fantasy, magic, romantic series that I would recommend.
