Synopsis

Number 1 New York Times bestseller. An intoxicating and bloodthirsty sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Cruel Prince., nominated for the CILIP CARNEGIE MEDAL 2019



'Holly Black is the Faerie Queen' - Victoria Aveyard



I have heard that for mortals, the feeling of falling in love is very like the feeling of fear.



Jude has tricked Cardan onto the throne, binding him to her for a year and a day. But the new High King does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undimmed. Meanwhile, a traitor in the court is scheming against her. Jude must fight for her life and the lives of those she loves, all while battling her own complicated feelings for Cardan. Now a year and a day seems like no time at all . . .

Customer Reviews

I have been attempting to write my review for The Wicked King for the last WEEK (well, in the middle of other work) trying to capture my shock, amazement, heart-break and overall awe of this series, and I have been failing spectacularly. There is a very fine line between SCREAMING ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT I LOVED AND LEFT ME SHOCKED in The Wicked King and spoiling the book for people who haven’t read it yet, while also capturing how ESSENTIAL it is for everyone to read this series and well, my review just doesn’t do it justice. Let’s try anyway: THINGS I LOVED IN THE WICKED KING: 1. JUDE AND CARDAN (AND JUDE AND CARDAN TOGETHER): I don’t disagree that Jude and Cardan’s relationship in The Cruel Prince was a little problematic, but their dynamic changes in The Wicked King, especially in the second half of the book and I WAS LIVING FOR IT. I especially loved the power Cardan wielded in respect to the land of Faerie and his schemes and kisses were all so deliciously written. 2. ALL THE SCHEMING: Madoc, Jude, Cardan, Nicasia, the queen of the Undersea, Balekin, Taryn and Locke were just some of the schemers in this crazy world, grabbing for power at every chance they got which led to some very interesting twists and shocking moments, all under Faeris glamour and I loved it. 3. THE COVER: The designer in me is absolutely itching to say it because I LOVED The Wicked King cover best of all in the series. With the Queen of Nothing cover, however, I’m not so sure. I feel like it’s not the best it could be. 4. THE ENDING: NO SPOILERS BUT I might have been screaming. I also might have been desperately turning pages, hoping there was more, but I had no such luck. Let’s just say that YOU WILL NOT SEE THE ENDING COMING AND YOU WILL LOVE IT AND IT WILL BREAK YOU. Would I recommend this book? YES. YES. YES. YES. Go dive in now. The Folk of the Air series has been nothing short of spectacular so far.

I was feeling very hesitant because for the first two hundred pages of the book, I was reluctant to keep reading due to having a real lack of motivation to read this story. I wasn't interested and found it to be really slow. However, once it hit the two hundredth page, everything changed and I was thoroughly gripped. The relationship dynamics, plot twists and character develop of these final one hundred pages were extraordinary and something to be commended. I have been a fan of Holly Black for about five years so it was bizarre to me that with both The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King, I was unable to find a real rhythm with my reading with these two novels until roughly the half way point.
