Of 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.

  1. The Cruel Prince is one of my most anticipated releases and it sounds really amazing!
    I’m definitely a fan of Holly Black’s books – I’ve read her Curse Workers series and really enjoyed it. It has a very unique story!

    1. Thanks for the comment! I haven’t read the Curse Workers series yet, but it’s been on my TBR for years! Also, I fixed the issue with the Tweeting about the giveaway entry if you tried that one and it was confusing. Rafflecopter messed it up haha.

      1. Then you should definitely give it a try! The concept of the whole series is amazing.
        I actually tried that and was confused hahhah thanks for the update

    2. I’ve read the Modern Fairie Tale series, the Darkest Part of the Forest plus the Coldest Girl In Cold Town! So excited for the new trilogy!

  2. I love read The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black and I love her writing style. She is truly the fairy queen when comes to stories of fey. I am looking forward to The Cruel Prince to continue my obsession of all books involving fairies!

    1. I loved that book too! I audiobooked it earlier this year and it was a really fun read. And I completely agree about her being the fairy queen 😉 Also, I fixed the issue with the Tweeting about the giveaway entry if you tried that one and it was confusing. Rafflecopter messed it up haha.

  3. Thanks so much for this opportunity. I entered a giveaway for it on Readers First, I requested an ARC from the publisher and I entered a Twitter giveaway for this book. All my efforts at getting this book have been futile. I hope I get lucky this time! Thank you❤

  4. Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway, Flavia! I love your blog. This would be the first Holly Black book I’d read, but it sounds so so good <3

  5. The Cruel Prince would be the first book I read by Holly Black, though before getting to read it, I might read another book by her just to get a feeling of her writing. Thanks for the chance!

  6. I’m so happy I found your blog, it is absolutely lovely! This would be the first book i’ve ever read from Holly Black! I have heard so much about this book and how wonderful it is ! Thankyou 🙂

    1. Awe thank you so much! 🙂

      And wow I’m surprised that so many of you haven’t read anything by Holly Black before this! She has some really great books! Good luck! 🙂

    1. You’re welcome! 🙂 And oooooo I definitely recommend the other books that I’ve read by her, such as the trilogy starting with Tithe, and The Darkest Part of the Forest! Good luck 🙂

  7. Flavia thank you for the giveaway and I will cross my fingers and hope that Rafflecopter will choose me because I love Holly Black and I want to read this one! I’ve read and loved The Coldest Girl in Coldtown!

    1. You’re welcome! And good luck Sophieeeee <3 I also really need to read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown! I loved her trilogy starting with Tithe (I forget the series name), and The Darkest Part of the Forest....gaaah. So magical.

      1. I loved The Darkest Part of the Forest! She has a unique style. When I read her book it feels like being in a dream with mist and mystery. I can’t describe it better than that.

      2. I loved The Darkest Part of the Forest as well! Her books have a “misty” quality. Like being in a dream.

  8. I’ve previously read The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black and I fell in love with her writing and her world building. I’m so excited to read The Cruel Prince and delve back into Holly Black’s world!

  9. I’ve been dying to read this book ever since it came up on my Goodreads recommendations!!! It’s one of my most anticipated releases for 2018 🙂 It’d be my first Holly Black book. I’ve heard wonders about her and can’t wait to tackle this.

  10. I am dying for this book. ❤️ I have tried sooo hard to get a copy of this arc. This will be my first Holly Black book but it’s one of my most anticipated reads for next year!

  11. So excited for this book! Had it on pre-order as soon as I could. I was so happy when Holly Black announced it a couple of years ago – looking forward to going back to that world!

  12. No, it won’t be the first one! I’ve read and loved the Magisterium series, The Darkest Part of the Forest, and The Coldest Girl in Coldtown, for example. I also read the first book in the Curse Workers series, hut couldn’t get into it (must give it another chance at some point).

  13. It won’t be the first of Holly Black’s books I’m reading! I am particularly fond of the Curse Workers trilogy, Tithe and the Spiderwick Chronicles. Thanks a lot for presenting such a generous opportunity as this, I am really looking forward the new book’s release c: and I’m happier too to have found your blog, I have enjoyed the reviews I’ve read so far!

  14. I have to say that The Cruel Prince is not my first Holly Black book. I just love them all. My first book I read from Holly Black was Doll Bones and loved it because it took place near where I live and I used to live in an old pottery factory so that story was just amazing to me and ever since I am a huge Holly Black fan. The Cruel Prince is my top pick for 2018 and I can not wait to read it whether earlier or not.

  15. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity lovely lady!! The Cruel Prince will be my second Holly Black novel to read. I read The Darkest Part of the Forest and loved it! I also have Tithe sitting on my shelf to read soon!

    1. You’re welcome and good luck! I’m glad you’ve been able to experience Holly Black before The Cruel Prince! And ahhh I read The Darkest Part of the Forest this year! And I read the trilogy starting with Tithe when I was a teen and loved it 😀

  16. This would be my first Holly Black book. I read a really good review of this a few weeks ago that instantly put it on my to-read list.

  17. I’m super excited for this book. I read Holly Black’s series with Cassandra Clare & the Coldest Girl in Cold Town. It wasn’t my favourite, but I enjoyed it enough to want to read TCP!

  18. Thanks so much for the giveway (and making it international too!!) The Cruel Prince will be most first Holly Black novel. She’s been on my radar for years, so I can’t believe I’ve left it until now to read her work. The reviews I’ve read for The Cruel Prince have been amazing, so I’m excited for it to be my first taste of her books!
