Hello, my darling readers!
If you read my review on Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince, you know that I immediately fell in love with the story. Naturally, I had to pick up The Wicked King the very moment I finished The Cruel Prince. So let’s get talking!
After the huge stunt, Jude pulled in The Cruel Prince everybody is trying to settle into their new roles. But that doesn’t mean that things will go the way Jude planned them…
Just like with The Cruel Prince, I basically burned through this book.
Holly Black, how dare you ending The Wicked King with a cliffhanger like that? I can’t wait another year for the final installment! The story is so gripping, I need to know the fate of Jude!
Politics are a tricky field to navigate and Jude certainly tries to do a good job. I love how Black depicts all the bumps in the road Jude encounters along the way. No matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to control everything and everyone.
I swear, the story got more intricate with every single page I turned. So many plot twist I didn’t see coming – especially the final one!
There are certain love stories in this book I’m not too sure about, but I don’t want to go into detail (no spoilers). Despite the fact that I am somewhat conflicted I still can’t help but ship it. There will be some big things coming in that department in the final Folk of Air book.
I just can’t wait for Queen of Nothing to be released! After The Wicked King I don’t have the slightest clue how all this will end, so I’m super excited!
