Description

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.

    Okay so I am about to start reading this new series by Holly and I just have to say I am so excited. Holly is my favorite author and her series ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ were the first books to become my favorite and gain my interest. I remember writing Holly letters and getting letters in return. Holly is the soul reason I read and write today.
  • Amazing

    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!😁
