Holly Black is back!

Having only read one book of Holly's I wasn't caught up in the hype of her writing a new YA trilogy. But I liked enough of her magic writing to dive right in and see what the fuss in all about... and oh fiction gods!

The Cruel Prince grips you form the very beginning and does not let go. It starts with Jude our heroine who lives in the mortal world but then her parents are murdered by Murdoc a fae knight and then she and her sisters are taken to live in Fae. In a world where the Fae treat mortals as playthings, Jude has been training tirelessly to become a Knight and try to earn herself a place of respect with the Fae. Which is were we meet Prince Cardan who makes it his mission to treat Jude as the poor powerless mortal Jude is, they're enemies and push each other to dangerous limits every day.

This book has a dangerous plot where everyone is out to kill each other, political intrigue when the crown is at stake and of course Jude fighting everyone who crosses her path. What I loved about this book is that everyone is slightly villainous, you don't know who to trust and as the stakes get higher and higher your left on the edge of your treat dreading but still excited to see what comes next! Possibly my favourite to a series!
