The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima continues the story of Raisa and Han as they both venture outside of their homeland and learn about magic and fighting :D. The Exiled Queen is the sequel to The Demon King and so there will be spoilers for the first book in the blurb. As long as you skip that though, you’re pretty safe since The Exiled Queen is pretty removed from the events of The Demon King. The Seven Realms series continues to have a seriously awesome strength of strong and logical female characters, and The Exiled Queen has the added bonus of a magic school!
Note: I listened to The Exiled Queen on audiobook, which strongly shapes my experiences with it.

Haunted by the loss of his mother and sister, Han Alister journeys south to begin his schooling at Mystwerk House in Oden’s Ford. But leaving the Fells doesn’t mean that danger isn't far behind. Han is hunted every step of the way by the Bayars, a powerful wizarding family set on reclaiming the amulet Han stole from them. And Mystwerk House has dangers of its own. There, Han meets Crow, a mysterious wizard who agrees to tutor Han in the darker parts of sorcery—but the bargain they make is one Han may regret.
Meanwhile, Princess Raisa ana’Marianna runs from a forced marriage in the Fells, accompanied by her friend Amon and his triple of cadets. Now, the safest place for Raisa is Wein House, the military academy at Oden's Ford. If Raisa can pass as a regular student, Wein House will offer both sanctuary and the education Raisa needs to succeed as the next Gray Wolf queen.
Everything changes when Han and Raisa’s paths cross, in this epic tale of uncertain friendships, cut-throat politics, and the irresistible power of attraction.
