Book Review: The Cruel Prince (Holly Black)


The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1)
by Holly Black

GoodReads // Spanish Review

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.


I’m gonna say it: This book is so fucking good. It’s so good that every book I read this year just disappear of my mind. It’s so good that I’m crying because I need the next one and I don’t have it because I HAVE TO WAIT TILL 2019. HOW DARE YOU.

Holly Black is a faery goddess, she made me a faery believer and now I can’t go with my life because I need moooooooore.

It’s ridiculously really good. It had tension, betrayal, bittersweet romance, very bitter. Unexpected turns.

It’s basically one of the best books of the year. It’s THE book.

I truly loved it.
