The book was hard to get in at first. It was kinda boring and I would zoom out half of the time. The climax was really good and unexpected though. After that the book only get's better. You see how the tables turn and the power of the main character. The plot twist at the end is MIND BLOWING! I most definetly did not saw that coming. The plot twist and the climax is a 5/5 stars. But the book itself is 3.5/5 stars.
Fokuset på denna serien är makt och politik men har en riktigt bra romans vid sidan om som blir mer aktuell i den andra boken. Huvudpersonen är stark och väldigt listig. Hon är väldigt rolig att läsa eftersom hon är varken god eller ond.
Jag kom in i den ganska fort och det händer mycket saker, men på mitten så står den still lite innan den skjuter iväg.
Se det här som ett tecken att du ska köpa boken. Har köpt övriga i serien också och längtar tills jag fått hem dem. Jude är så bra skriven och har så bra vibes. Cardan är sådär gött irriterande. Rekommenderar starkt!!
Det var lite svårt för mig att hänga med i början vilket gjorde att jag var osäker på om jag tyckte om den, men när ja fortsatte läsa förstod ja lite mer och har redan börjat på nästa :)
Blev så positivt överraskad att vi följer en människa och inte en så kallad Fey, eftersom de är i Faerie världen. Den är en enemies to lovers typ av bok, följt av två uppföljare, och jag tycker faktiskt att den är mycket mer spännande än vad som sägs på baksidan av boken. Köpte inte denna på så lång tid men gav den tillslut en chans, och ångrar det inte! Rekommenderas verkligen!
Lush, dangerous, a dark jewel of a book. Black's world is intoxicating, imbued with a relentless sense of peril that kept me riveted through every chapter of Jude's journey. And Jude! She is a heroine to love--brave but pragmatic, utterly human. This delicious story will seduce you and leave you desperate for just one more page -- Leigh Bardugo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom Stands out amid a plethora of fairy-court fantasies . . .

Impossible not to enjoy. Shadowhunters fan should read this at their earliest opportunity * SciFi Now * A veritable queen of dark fantasy, Holly Black spins a thrilling tale of intrigue and magic in her newest novel. Ten years after the faeries murdered her parents and stole her away, 17 year old Jude is fighting to be accepted by her captors. Unmissable for fans of Sarah J. Mass and the Grisha trilogy * Buzzfeed UK * This splendidly wicked and richly created story is one you won't want to miss * Buzzfeed * With brave world building, complex characters and an intriguing plot all piled into one novel, this is a huge success * The Page Is Printed * Fantasy adventure at its brilliant, intelligent, thought-provoking best * LoveReading * In this story she has once again proved why she is known by some as the 'Queen of Faerie because she successfully creates a dark, twisted world inspired by the old folktales where the fae are capricious and cruel, yet sets it alongside a modern world that feels all too familiar * Chrikaru Blog * A gripping tale packed with beautiful writing, a well crafted world, complex characters and fast paced action.

Whether she's writing about vampires or faeries, Black creates worlds so real that you risk losing yourself in them * Wondra's World * I really cannot recommend The Cruel Prince highly enough. If you've read Holly's other books you'll get an extra kick out of it, but you don't need to, as this is a separate series. I'm already dying for book 2 and I can't believe I have to wait a year for it. I'm not entirely sure how I'm go
