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 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.
I CANT WAIT!!,
Ok the first book was one of the best books I’ve ever read. If this one even 1/2 as good as the other one it deserves a big fat five star rating! I can’t wait to read and I know and hope I won’t be disappointed!😁
I enjoyed the book because it is constantly moving forward and adding new details to the plot. The thing that drives me bonkers though, is that the first book, The Cruel Prince, only got going in the direction I wanted at the end, and then in this book, The Wicked King, the plot went off course again for me by the end of the book! Super Annoyed. It’s one of those times I will end up buying the 3rd book just to finish the story but I wont be looking forward to reading it because the author seems to set the plot in ways I dislike.
A thrilling storyline full of betrayals and romance
Holly Black did it again with this amazing sequel to The Cruel Prince! I’m already anxious for the next installment.
