Description

This edgy, dark fantasy will be a hit with young adults who like their magical creatures to live in a recognizably contemporary world. Another fantastic, deeply engaging, and all-consuming work from Black that belongs on all YA shelves. She has been a finalist for an Eisner and a Lodestar Award, and the recipient of the Mythopoeic Award, a Nebula, and a Newbery Honor. They indulged all their worst impulses, revenged themselves for the least offense, and took every last thing they wanted. The accompanying illustrations are beautiful and it was really nice to see the words depicted on the pages.

From the perfect color palette, to the most perfect details, she executes the vibe of Cardan and his story in a way that I don’t think another artist could. They’re just so damn cute and good for each other, which is why Jurdan is one of my favorite enemies-to-lovers couples. She wants to fight monsters, and she wants him for a lover, the same boy she fantasized about murdering.Some might think of him as a strong draught, burning the back of one’s throat, but invigorating all the same. This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar but pivotal moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective. So yes, yes, yes I absolutely recommend this book to fans of the series; especially to those that adore Cardan as much as I do.

In this story, Cardan’s life is very much impacted by a troll named Aslong who was wronged by Cardan’s father. Sure, she's an important character, and I don't completely hate her anymore because of the third book, but seeing Cardan and Nicasia but not so much of Cardan and Jude? He forms such an imperative part in what makes Elfhame and so by being inside his mind you are also inside Elfhame and I love that.Overall, this was an amazing addition to the series and I just wish it was longer because I didn’t want to finish it! Me gustó conocer más a fondo a Cardan y descubrir su perspectiva de la vida y de algunas de las situaciones que ya conocíamos pero solo desde el punto de vista de Jude.

He’s grateful, of course, but it feels as though it’s just another of the ridiculous, absurd, dangerous things she does. There are a very very few authors out there who could make a character like Cardan, who could build that amazing character arc, who could make us fall in love with the disaster that is the High King of Elfhame and Holly Black is one of them.This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar but pivotal moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan’s perspective. I suppose I would have plummeted out of the air,” Jude tells him with troubling equanimity, her expression saying, Horrible risks are entirely normal to me .
