Publisher Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, comes the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue.

Of course I want to be like them. They're beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him--and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

I am not liking Taryn at all. You can see that Jude will give the world for her and taryn couldn’t care less if she had to drop Jude as long as Is beneficial for her

AN AMAZING BOOK

This book series has gotten a lot of hype in the past couple of years and when I finally decided to pick up The Cruel Prince I was not disappointed!! Jude is one of my favorite protagonists ever because she has actual flaws. In a lot of books I read the character HAVE flaws, but they’re so small and insignificant that it hardly affects the storyline at all! But Jude Duarte shows vulnerability, raw emotion and all the amazing stuff that you can relate to as a human being.
Character development was ON POINT. One second I would love a character and the next I would be wishing them dead. Holly Black played with my emotions throughout all three books in the series. In the beginning I DESPISED Cardin, but now I literally am in love with him.
The storyline is also really awesome. A lot of storylines seem forced but this one just flows so naturally I forget I’m even reading!! I don’t usually re-read series, but I will defined be re-reading this one, over and over and over again.
If you have not read The Cruel Prince PLEASE read it!! It is one of the best books I have ever read. You will thank me.
