If you know Holly Black, then you must know that she is the Queen of Fae. At the beginning of this year, she brought us back into Faerie with The Cruel Prince. If you haven't read it, stop right here and go grab a copy. You'll come back with more questions than answers and a thirst to dive back into the world of Faerie.
If you devoured it like many fans did, then here's something to whet your appetite. Our friends over at Entertainment Weekly revealed the cover to the highly anticipated sequel.
Are you ready? Here it is:
Ugh, yessssss. If you're intrigued (which, come on, you are), here's what it's about:
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
