The enchanting and bloodthirsty sequel to the New York Times bestselling novel The Cruel Prince.
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

The Wicked King is quite a ride on strategy, game play, brutality, and mayhem. The story will have you scratching your head at the abilities this girl has. I honestly believe that the King cares for and may even love Jude. Many of his actions are protective in nature even if they appear revengeful. Unfortunately, Jude only “sees” treachery at every turn.
The ending was too harsh and made me regret reading the entire series.
I love how exciting the book is, and how it keeps you wanting to read more! Also loved how much the way all the faeries said things mattered. Can’t wait for the next book!! I NEED more Cardan x Jude. Definitely one of the best books ever, in my opinion.
