Bien sûr, je veux être comme elles. Ils sont beaux comme des lames forgées dans un feu divin. Elles vivront éternellement.

Et Cardan est encore plus beau que les autres. Je le déteste plus que tous les autres. Je le déteste tellement que parfois, quand je le regarde, j’ai du mal à respirer.

Jude avait sept ans lorsque ses parents ont été assassinés et qu’elle et ses deux sœurs ont été emmenées pour vivre dans la Haute Cour de Fée. Dix ans plus tard, Jude ne désire rien de plus que d’y appartenir, malgré sa mortalité. Mais beaucoup de fées méprisent les humains. Surtout le prince Cardan, le plus jeune et le plus méchant des fils du Grand Roi.

Pour gagner sa place à la Cour, elle doit le défier et en assumer les conséquences.

Ce faisant, elle se retrouve mêlée aux intrigues et aux tromperies du palais et découvre sa propre capacité à faire couler le sang. Mais alors que la guerre civile menace de noyer les Cours de Faerie dans la violence, Jude devra risquer sa vie dans une alliance dangereuse pour sauver ses sœurs, et Faerie elle-même.


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.

“This is a heady blend of Faerie lore, high fantasy, and high school drama, dripping with description that brings the dangerous but tempting world of Faerie to life. Black is building a complex mythology; now is a great time to tune in.”―Kirkus Reviews
