Wainting on Wednesday. The Cruel Prince

Wednesday, 15 November 2017


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week on WoW is The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. Although, Holy Black has already been published several times, I have not ready yet any of her books - any recommendation? Which books/series should I read first? Well, I could not resist the synopsis of this book (hopefully, there will not be an abusive relationship) since faeries will always be some of my favourite magical/folk creatures (if you haven't read Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, I truly recommend you). The book will be released on January 2nd 2018.

"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.

  5. My co-blogger is a big Holly Black fan (I think a few of the WLABBers are). I have yet to read one of her books, but I have several. This sounds like it will be quite the epic fantasy!

  11. I've never read any of Holly's books either - although I may have once read a novella penned by her. That said, I do here her books are really unique as are the world's in which the stories come alive. Hope you end up enjoying this one! Thanks so much for the Finding Wonderland visit, Tania! :)
