The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

My Rating: 5/5 Stars

Summary via Amazon:

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.

My Review: I couldn’t put it down! Enchanting, spellbinding, and terrible in the best way, this book is beautifully written. The world building is breathtaking. And scene after scene is packed with magic, suspense, danger, and twists I didn’t see coming! It’s dark. Wonderfully dark. I was on the edge of my seat from start to finish, drinking in every detail. I finished this book in about 24hours because I was under it’s spell, and I can’t wait to read The Wicked King!

I bought this ebook for my own enjoyment.
