Waterstones Says

The sequel to The Cruel Prince delves further into the intrigue and treachery coursing through the royal court as Jude and Cardan must battle their feelings for each other as well as unknown enemies who lurk close at hand. Magical, romantic and compelling, Holly Black’s Folk of the Air series just keeps on getting better.

An intoxicating and bloodthirsty sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Cruel Prince., nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal 2019.

I have heard that for mortals, the feeling of falling in love is very like the feeling of fear.

Jude has tricked Cardan onto the throne, binding him to her for a year and a day. But the new High King does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undimmed. Meanwhile, a traitor in the court is scheming against her. Jude must fight for her life and the lives of those she loves, all while battling her own complicated feelings for Cardan. Now a year and a day seems like no time at all . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Wicked King is an exhilarating, heart in your mouth blend of murder, magic, desire and betrayal - an unputdownable book that doesn't just live up to the brilliance of The Cruel Prince but exceeds it. Just wait 'til you get to the end...' - Culturefly 

'You should read this book if you like: YA fantasy, The Cruel Prince, faerie tales, treacherous court politics, complicated relationships with bad (immortal) boys.' - Goodreads
