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 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.
My heart is not okay
Just like the Cruel Prince, this book started slow for me, but I pushed onward and didn’t regret it. But, now my heart hurts.
It starts slow but once it picks up you can look forward to:
1) lots of mystery and intrigue
3) The plot twists and the satisfaction of Jude being awesome
4) Relationship development and banter
- The only things I didn’t love were
1) Taryn and Locke’s relationship (it made no sense to me)
2) Minimal character development
3) Lack of descriptions of the Fae and settings
Overall, it did not disappoint!
Woah! I loved it!
So much that l didn't expect. I liked being surprised. I'm really liking this author.
