to destroy them Just a uick note I got my copy from Owl Crate this company had a wonderful monthly book subscription box along with a few special editions that I just cannot pass upThis was everything I hoped it could be and Jude a human raised in Faerieland spent her entire Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities life undermined and controlled by the often cruel whims of the FaeriesShe s hated and feared the creatures for years She s cowered and fled from them She s begged and bargained her way out of torture Not any Especially considering she now controls all of FaerielandA few months ago Jude was horrified toearn that her younger step brother Oak is heir to the Faerie thrown So Jude did whatever she could to save him from an early death and that included doing something she never dreamed possible So I said You enjoy being my pawnHe grinned azilyFor now She manipulated Cardan a faerie prince into making an oath of

fraying There are traitors all around the sea is fighting theand and Jude s The Day Christ Was Born life is threatened from every angle It seems hopeless to fight something so vast It seems ridiculous to believe we can win Theonger she holds High King under her thumb the ess she knows and the attached she grows What has changed Is he different because I have forced him to beOr is he no different at all and I am only seeing what I want to all and I am only seeing what I want to Meanwhile King Cardan has his own plans and schemes and he sets several in motion and no amount of commands from Jude could possible stop them allAnd among those devious plots is something decidedlynew Something for which Jude had no plots or plans against Something shocking and crazy Something utterly insane It

best way possible I don t have enough words in the world to describe how in And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake love I am with himThe way Jude and Cardan dance around each other actually made my heart race I don t think I ve ever been this invested in a relationship before Simply magicalSpeaking of magic wow The world of Faerie aa Holly Black is as always absolutely stunning I Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America loveove The Pocket Wife love the way she weaves such a complicated web I could read her world over and over and never be tired of itThe plot was fabulous the way it slowly picked up speed and that ending whew I m still reeling I cannot get over everything that happened Couldn t tear my eyes awayAlso I have a theory about the end view spoiler The king said that Jude was banished until the crown pardons herdoes anyone else think Holly Black is aiming for Jude to pardon herself She does have a crown now hide spoiler Dear Holly BlackFirst of all how dare youSecond of all you are NOT supposed to go around stabbing people in the heart That is illegal This is illegal Please stop writing illegal stuffThis book has made a great mess of myife I keep thinking back to when I first read The Cruel Prince and how I was completely unaware of just how much this story would mean to me My tiny human body isn t even big enough to hold all the The Color of Our Sky love that s inside In fact it s now safe to assume that no matter what is happening at any given moment in time the background noise going on in my heart is alwaysove and appreciation for these books So what is this book about His mouth curls into a smile His eyes shine with wicked intent Look at them all your subjects A shame not a one knows who their true ruler is The veins of power are not as the Faerieland of Elfham thinks radiating out from the beating heart of their new High King They are radiating out from his mortal seneschal every thread of power and authority would start and end with Jude DuartePulled under in a too familiar poison current of enemies and allies of the former than the atter Jude can t afford to betray the slightest amount of weakness or fear She must once again fight the battle of manners and politics and crowns that had traded blood splattered hands uite often She must earn to navigate the machinations of the court the calculated plays for power and the truth of where thrones are won and Obsession lost in the favors traded for power in the gossip and theetters passed in dark corners in the secret payments and the shadow alliancesBut with each day bringing her closer to the end of the deal she struck with Cardan where he vowed to act in accordance to her will for one year and a day and not one minute a miasma of anxious fear hovers over everything as Jude begins to feel these new threads to the throne snap one by one threatening to undo all her plans Cabaret: A Roman Riddle like a knot And seeing as she and the High King are often at odds with each other enemies as freuently as they are allies Jude iseft as always with her only thread of power herself Power is much easier to acuire than it is to hold on to I don t think there s any combination of words that could accurately convey just how good this book is With a magician s flair for misdirection Holly Black weaves a captivating spell with anguorously descriptive writing the atmosphere was so vividly imagined I felt ike moss would just start appearing around me and branches would just grow from any surface. R 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. .
I ooked at breathtaking set pieces engaging characters and a gratifying emotional hook that will keep the pages whirring ending this second installment with a spinning sense of history repeating itself and a cliffhanger that you might anticipate but only as a vague fear that might not come true if you didn t think about it too hard The end will seem ess of a synonym for ending than it will be for beginning as the characters All Roads Lead Home learn the hard way just how slippery and illusory power is THE CHARACTERS JUDE DUARTEI am so fascinated by her character Iove her capacity for holding contradictory feelings in balance for complexly alloyed affections for stubborn bravery that seems of a result of chaining her fears and not unhooking their eashes just yet for bottomless generosity of heart with undertones of naked ust for power and petty capricious malice Jude is full of so many wants too many to prioritize and so sometimes they all feel desperate She is a wolf earning the patterns of much bigger wolves She survived on 1 The Cruel Prince 15 The Lost Sisters Once upon a time there was a human girl stolen away by faeries and because of that she swore to destroy them Many of you might not know this but on this day many years ago Holly Black s biggest fan was born Spoiler it s me And I figured what better way to celebrate my birthday than to finally

is the second installment in The Folk of the Air series the first being my favorite book of 2017 The Cruel Prince And this book starts off five months after the heart wrenching events in book one This review is going to be spoiler free but I will be talking about some key elements that happened in the previous book So please do not read this review if you do not wish to be somewhat spoiled for The
