Review: The Cruel Prince

26032825The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1)

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.

This book…IS…SO…AMAZING! I was excited about a new fae book after reading Maas’ work, and don’t really find many that I fall head-over-heels in-love with, but this one delivered all I hoped for, and so much more! I even kinda of cheated, and after reading a few chapters, I glanced at the last sentence(Something I never do!), so I thought I knew how the book would end…I was WRONG, and couldn’t be happier about that! Once things started falling, horribly, gloriously apart, I couldn’t stop reading, and read the last half in one large gulp!

I’ve meant to read Holly Black’s work for a few years now, but this was my first time reading her work. I honestly don’t know what took me so long, and I can’t wait to read more of her work!
