Title: The wicked king

Author: Holly Black

Genre: Fantasy, YA.

Release date: January 8th 2019



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.


Why I’m excited:

Do I really need to explain?! I think 95% of the people who read the cruel prince is excited for this book! I’m really happy it releases in the beginning of the year since that’s not so far away anymore 🙂
