Vous devez être assez fort pour frapper, frapper et frapper encore sans vous fatiguer.
La première leçon est de se rendre fort.

Après la révélation stupéfiante qu’Oak est l’héritier de Faerie, Jude doit assurer la sécurité de son jeune frère. Pour ce faire, elle a lié le méchant roi, Cardan, à elle et s’est faite le pouvoir derrière le trône. Naviguer dans les alliances politiques en constante évolution de Faerie serait déjà difficile si Cardan était facile à contrôler. Mais il fait tout ce qui est en son pouvoir pour l’humilier et la miner, même si sa fascination pour elle reste intacte.

Lorsqu’il devient évident qu’un proche de Jude veut la trahir, menaçant sa propre vie et celle de tous ceux qu’elle aime, Jude doit découvrir le traître et combattre ses propres sentiments compliqués pour Cardan afin de garder le contrôle en tant que mortelle dans un monde de fées.


You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother 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 fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Praise for The Wicked King:
*”A stunning and compelling sequel.”―–SLJ, starred Review

*”A heady blend of courtly double-crossing, Faerie lore, and toxic attraction swirls together in the sequel to THE CRUEL PRINCE….

Praise for The Cruel Prince:
“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!

“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
