Review: The Wicked King by Holly Black

To say I was in love with The Cruel Prince is an understatement! I needed more Cardan!

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.

So it feels like I’ve been waiting for an age to read this! The Cruel Prince was such a great read…..and now I have The this in my my grabby hands.

And I loved it!

Cardan was everything I wanted him to be. Jude was….omg Jude went from strength to strength in my eyes. There was lies, there were schemes, there was treachery, there were plans, there were shocks and I want more!
