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. (Goodreads)

Today I'm teaming up with the awesome folks at NOVL to bring you a giveaway for
The Cruel Prince
by Holly Black!! Keep reading to see my thoughts for the book, AND enter the giveaway to win a copy of the book and other awesome goodies!!

It's been a while since I've read a book by Holly Black, so I was super excited to dive right into The Cruel Prince, her newest release. The summary for the book sounded really awesome, and, it's been way too long since I've had the pleasure reading a book about fairies. So needless to say, I was pretty excited to start this book. It was really great!

To keep things short and sweet, I'm going to say that there was so much about this book to like. It has really well written characters, including the main character, Jude, who was amazing and quite a badass, and super easy to relate to. There are a lot interesting secondary characters as well to get to know. The storyline was completely engrossing, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see what was going to happen next. Also, the world-building was INSANE. I could picture the fairie world perfectly in my mind, and I loved every single description.

So yes, overall, I basically really loved this book. (What's not to love? Ok, a few things that happen with the characters, but I'm not going to go over that here.) Apparently this is going to be a 3 book series, and I'm insanely curious to know what is going to happen in the next two books, titled The Wicked King (expected 2019), and The Queen of Nothing, (expected 2020). It's going to be a looooong wait to get my hands on these books, but I am really looking forward to reading them! I must know what's going to happen next for Jude and all the fairies in the fairie world. If you're a fan of fairie books, or of Holly's books in general, you'll definitely want to check this out! (And I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did!)
