Holly Black returns to the world of fairies with her latest release, The Cruel Prince! And ..that was epic!! In fact, I was very excited to read that this is still the same fairy world we knew from Diezmo, just in a different part/region! I’ll get into that in a moment! Needless to say, this is the book I have been unknowingly waiting for!

When Jude was seven years old, he witnessed, along with his sisters, how a fairy murdered his parents. It turns out that Jude’s mother was once married to a fairy named Madoc and one day she ran away from who was supposed to be Jude’s father. His sister Vivi is actually Madoc’s daughter, while Jude and his twin Taryn have another. Madoc takes the girls back to the fairies and from there Jude’s life would change forever.

Jude has always had trouble being in the fairies. She wants much more for herself than is expected of a human who lives there, which is servanthood or marrying a fairy who likes humans. Ella’s sister Vivi longs to return to the mortal world, while her twin sister Taryn wishes to find love and happiness in fairies. However, Jude knows what she wants for herself, and that is to earn a knighthood in the empire in which she lives. Though knighthood is ridiculous for a human among her own kind.

Jude feels her dreams come true when Dain, her future king, approaches her and asks her to essentially be a spy for him. If he receives the crown, she will be knighted, just as she always wanted. Although Jude does have some enemies, namely her peers of hers, whom she likes to torment her. Let’s just say that fairies are not ordinary tyrants. Especially the ones that people don’t like.

There was quite a bit of politics and history at play here, I’ll admit there was an overabundance of names at times, it was a bit more confusing as some of the names being thrown around were of characters who had previously died. So when they are first mentioned and then appear a few hundred pages later, it was hard to find the connection at the time.

Going back, I can understand the events of the past enough to apply them to the present, but yes, there were some confusing moments for me, but nothing stopped me from reading on!

This story really hooked me! I loved Holly’s Tithe, which I read (for the first time) a few years ago and pretty much cemented my fascination with fairies. It’s hard to distinguish what we know about Disney fairies from just about everything else! For the most part in terms of literature, we know that fairies can be cunning.

The fairies here are no different. Most don’t love humans and having two in their kingdom doesn’t make them happy at all. Like Cardan, Jude’s most vicious tyrant and one of the fairies who could also be king. Then there’s Locke, who doesn’t seem to be as bad as the others, but to me that set off his own red flares! Needless to say, never trust fairies!

Holly only throws in a bit of romance in this movie, but she ends up being challenged almost immediately! She definitely makes you wonder what’s in store for Jude and… someone next! I feel like book two will help me better explain my feelings about this romantic element. It’s hard to describe without going into details and possible spoilers, but yes, it’s complicated.

The ending was pretty amazing as well, although I was expecting something like that to happen but I guess my mind got lost and I missed what was supposed to happen but it didn’t. If I haven’t confused you there, then yes! Basically plans were made and changed and then changed again and I missed the first change.

There were several plans before settling on one! LOL!! Things are in a very tense moment. Nothing suspenseful in itself, but really tense at the end! I can’t wait for the next episode! Holly Black weaves the tale of magic, intrigue, and adventure that will leave you spellbound!

If you didn’t believe in the world of fairies before reading a Holly Black fairy tale, you will after reading this book. Her characters and her beautiful and deceptive world of fairies make you feel as if you have entered a world of real appearances. The Fairy Queen doesn’t need fairy fruits to cast a spell on you. black slavery draws you in with its lovely writing, charms you with its stories, and makes you wish you could bargain with the fairies just to get the next book in the series.

Oh, this book, and everything about it, feels like a book. I loved this book. It’s a delightfully intriguing story, sometimes sinister and sometimes downright evil, full of cunning characters, fairy princes and human sisters who grew up among the fairies in their brutal world. Essentially, it’s a Holly Black masterpiece!

Family dynamics are not lacking in this story. ares and friendship, the politics of the fairies and their courtly dynamics, the surprising political alliances, the deceptions, the betrayals and the unforeseen plot twists. Not to mention the well-written characters who love, love, hate and are completely blown away. Black’s fairy characters and his world are exactly as he would have imagined them. Jude is definitely my favorite character in this story.

Jude is one of those main characters whose will and strength I would have liked to emulate. He is unbreakable. What makes Jude so easy to get in touch with is his vulnerability in the faerie world. People never do well there, but she and her sister do. Jude is as wild as she is vulnerable.

I love that about his character. His vulnerability translates into an unbreakable willpower and inner strength that no one can match. Not even her “adoptive family of hers” or the insane hellish fairy prince who despises her. I love how everything she has to put up with from her makes her a cunning and calculated figure not to be underestimated. It wasn’t difficult for me to encourage them from the beginning.

Words fail me when it comes to Jude to and Fairy Prince Cardan. Oh, your scenes are interesting. I didn’t rule out this turn of events that made me realize the two of them might have more in common than I thought. The shocking turn of events also made it clear that while fairies are bound to do or not do something, Jude is smart enough to outwit even them and their unbreakable, centuries-old ways to put his plan into action. . He is really AWESOME, although I am a little worried about what will come in the next book. There is always a price when it comes to fairies.

OH MY WORD, THIS END! Yes, that deserves all caps, because THIS END. insert incoherent words Holly Black proves once again why she is the queen of the fairies. She is the queen of storytelling, character development, world building, deception, and tear-jerking brutality on readers. Oh, this book is everything that feels like a beautiful cover and an addictive story that will leave you wanting.

This book begins with a murder. Actually two. The gruesome murder of a woman and her husband by her ex-husband, who turns out to be Madoc, a malevolent warmongering fae. But instead of returning to Elfhame empty-handed, she takes her daughter Vivi, as well as her seven-year-old half-sisters, Taryn and Jude, whom she is raising on her estate, into the world of the fairies.

Growing up as a mortal in the faerie world is a precarious existence, often dangerous and always brutal. The cruel prince follows Jude, now a teenager, as she tries to prove that she is more than human, a powerful warrior to be chosen as a knight in a fairy court. But Jude’s hopes and goals don’t go as planned, and she is soon hired as a spy for one of the princes in line for the throne of Elfhame.

This is a novel full of political machinations, lies and brutality, cruelty, beauty and brilliance.

There is so much to discuss in this novel that it’s hard to know where to begin: Jude’s ambition, his sisters’ secrets, Madoc’s secret loyalty, the cruel Cardan, the beautiful lock of hair, and the fruit. But I really think it’s better if you approach this book with as little knowledge as I do.

Jude is a brilliant, rampaging creature: the product of murder, danger, and brutality, a strength built on his frailty and weakness as mere mortals, easily influenced and damaged by the world around them.
