The Wicked King is quite a ride on strategy, game play, brutality, and mayhem. The story will have you scratching your head at the abilities this girl has. I honestly believe that the King cares for and may even love Jude. Many of his actions are protective in nature even if they appear revengeful. Unfortunately, Jude only “sees” treachery at every turn.

I love how exciting the book is, and how it keeps you wanting to read more! Also loved how much the way all the faeries said things mattered. Can’t wait for the next book!! I NEED more Cardan x Jude. Definitely one of the best books ever, in my opinion.
This book was great! To be honest I really didn’t like the first book. Not because it was bad but because it was just so bland. After reading this book, my whole perception of the story has changed. There is a lot more going on with a lot more character depth. We really get to see who people are in this story, and how fairies differentiate from humans in that aspect.
Spoilers:... OK WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON. EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU THINK YOUR ABOUT TO GET A HAPPY ENDING SHE TAKES THE LAST TEN PAGES AND DESTROYS EVERYTHING. HE LITERALLY GAVE A (SUPPOSEDLY) HEARTFELT SPEECH ABOUT FEELING BAD FOR HIS PAST **MARRIES** HER FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, AND THEN IT WAS ALL A TRICK?? WHO IS THIS CHARACTER?? IS EVERYTHING HE SAYS A LIE? DO ALL HIS KISSES AND KINDNESSES MEAN NOTHING?! anyways, great book :)
I enjoyed the book because it is constantly moving forward and adding new details to the plot. The thing that drives me bonkers though, is that the first book, The Cruel Prince, only got going in the direction I wanted at the end, and then in this book, The Wicked King, the plot went off course again for me by the end of the book! Super Annoyed. It’s one of those times I will end up buying the 3rd book just to finish the story but I wont be looking forward to reading it because the author seems to set the plot in ways I dislike.
Holly Black did it again with this amazing sequel to The Cruel Prince! I’m already anxious for the next installment.
When will the next book come out because how that ends is crazy like omg I can’t I can’t believe it please tell me the next book will be soon because idk if I can handle not knowing what she will do or if he even really trusted her, but he had to of like come on, she has to have some power Can mortals really not become that like what!
