Oh WOW! Why does it have to end and why do I have to wait for the next book?
I was warry to start this book since there has been so much hype. Even before this book officially came out I wanted to read it. I loved everything in this book, from “heroes” to the “villains”. The evil, cruelty, and power hunger of the fae dominates this book. Every twist makes you hate the world more and more. Cardan is awful but not bad. I kind of like him even though he is meant to be a thorn in Judes side. Then there is Jude. Jude makes a ton of idiotic moves, which drove me crazy. But, I still could have liked her if she was a likable character because young adults sometimes make stupid choices.
I liked how she was a very strong character but full of flaws. She’s clever yet naïve. Tough yet emotional and very human.
This book starts out with a murder, then a kidnapping followed by a slow build. It kind of slows down towards the middle and you are left wondering why Jude is telling the story like she is. She makes a lot of mistakes, trust a lot of people she shouldn’t, and does stuff that make me cringe. But then things change and she redeems herself. Comes up with plans and finds out how strong she is.
I loved this book…I would even says loved this book. I think the writing style could have been better and there could have been a little more dept to some of the characters but over all it’s a good read.
Worth the hype!
Book Description for Goodreads
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.
