Holly black once again did not disappoint at all with this thrilling sequel. Firstly this cover is gorgeous and matched the first really well. I loved seeing Cardan and Jude’s relationship develop even more and seeing how Cardan fits into the role of king. It was also interesting to read about Jude’s relationship with her family members particularly Taryn and Madoc. This was a very fun read and I devoured it in a day Blacks writing style is enjoyable and I was completely drawn into the world of faerie, also Cardan is amazing! His attitude to life is so relaxed, and you can’t help fall in love with all his charm! Jude is a strong, independent woman and that clearly shows, I love how Jude enjoys fighting and all things politics it’s refreshing to read about a woman in power!The ending left me speechless and even more eager to read the third book.
