Waiting on Wednesday : The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  My book this week is : The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black.

the cruel princeOf 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.

Expected Publication : January 2018

    I haven’t read a Holly Black book in a long time. I love the little green bug on this cover. Hope you love it – it sounds like a great read.

      I hope so too. And thanks for spotting the bug – it had sort of escaped my attention.

    Here’s another author (and the list keeps growing longer…) I have not read yet and mean to: this one looks like a wonderful entry book. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I just added this to my Goodreads watchlist a couple weeks ago too. I don’t think I’ve read any Holly Black yet, so this is exciting!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yay – it is exciting. I’ve read her before and enjoyed her books. I hope this one is good – especially if it’s your first foray into her work.
