R 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 Update Jan 8 2019 It s here Power is so much easier to acuire than it is to hold on to So I m officially ADDICTEDI can t say for sure what makes a good fantasy book for other people but for me these books are like crack I m like Fever series level addicted right now and I don t know how I can possibly wait for book three Also Cardan is evil and terrible and I am in love with him I wish I was sorryThis book got me so good The banter and sexual tension between Jude and Cardan had me on the edge of my seat all googly eyed like a schoolgirl with a crush The political machinations lying and backstabbing are all so damn thrilling I saw literally nothing coming though I don t know if that was the author s genius or just because I was too immersed in the story to play detectiveI ll keep this vague for those who haven t read The Cruel Prince yet This book picks up where the last left off Jude has negotiated herself into a position of power and she fully intends to exploit it The dynamic between her and Cardan has to be the sexiest I have read in a very long time I like that they are both powerful people both a little morally uestionable because it makes all the lovehate angst so much fun I dislike when one character in a relationship holds all the power and uses it against the other but these two are euals for better and for worse For a moment he says I wondered if it wasn t you shooting bolts at meI make a face at him And what made you decide it wasn tHe grins up at me They missed Though I also love all the characters I love Madoc and the strange relationship between him Taryn and Jude he is their father figure and yet he also murdered their parents I love Vivi because she just knows Revenge is sweet but ice cream is sweeter I love the Bomb and all the villainsYou know this is exactly how I enjoy romance tucked away behind action kidnappings and betrayal There s actually a really compelling plot here full of twists and surprises and the threat of war and it only serves to make the sexy banter thrilling when we are finally treated to it Holly Black is such a teaseAnd she s also evil It s not right to call the ending a cliffhanger and yet it is so deliciously evil I am dying to know what happens nextBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

The Wicked King

Fascination with her remains undiminishedWhen 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 wor someone why do you like this bookme deep in an elaborate fantasy seuence in which Jude forces me onto a throne for her own selfish gain and is an ambitious bitch to me and treats me terribly but also we have a lot of sexual tension uhhhhh well I just really like the plot twistsOkay but for real I already talked a lot about why I loved The Cruel Prince so I guess I ll just give a uick summary antiheroes court intrigue power plays and a fish out of water in a world full of monsters but this time she s determined to seize the same power And it s badassJude is so great She s seriously becoming one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and I don t really know how Her narrative voice is so strong shaping and characterizing the world around her The strength of her voice perfectly counteracts the desperation we see within her to cling to power to not give up the few gains she has made She s so delightfully unlikable and yet manages to gain audience sympathy at every moment The side characters here are particularly great I particularly like the relationship between the Bomb the Roach the backstory we got for them here was excellent Vivi is as fantastic as ever but I actually love what was done with her character I ll talk about this later The Wicked King is also pushed up by a series of interesting villains while I am emphatically not a Locke or Nicasia fan Taryn is intriguing and I want of her and Madoc is always a delight Oh and then there s Cardan the Sort Of Love Interest who I find both incredibly compelling and very dislikableI think what I m most fascinated about with this book is how it plays with the dynamic of humans wresting whatever power they can The idea of fairies not understanding the stakes of their own world on the level that human characters do Vivi as someone who grew up a fairy does not understand how Jude was affected by her childhood she was never charmed or manipulated or forced to play the games that Jude was And the dynamic between Cardan and Jude is perfect Jude clinging to the little power she has over Cardan and Cardan being under someone s thumb just one timeI m not sure how I felt about parts of the dynamic between Cardan and Jude there s a continuous lack of dictated consent in their interactions which makes sense for the situation and is still bothersome But also I m kind of obsessed with their relationship They have so much sexual tension and it kills me I cannot wait to see where it goes And also guys there were so many fucking plot twists I m laughing i have no idea how I even felt about the final twist but literally everything else was so fucking legit and I screamed about eight times reading this book Basically that was everything I liked about The Cruel Prince but like Jude is seriously one of my favorite fictional characters ever and the plot twists killed me and I m super into the romance And in unrelated news I m going into a coma now Holly you know what you did and I ll see you all next year If I m not dead yet Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube
