💜💜💜💜💜

After reading The Wicked King, I was ready to jump into this book as soon as it was released. I think this series works overall, even if I don’t think that this is the strongest book.

I felt like this one had a slow start, similar to The Wicked King. It was bad, but it just took me a little while to really get into it.

My absolute favorite parts from this book were any private moments between Jude and Cardan. They were just so good and I couldn’t wait until the next time they had another scene together.

I didn’t think the main enemy in this book was going to be who it ended up being. I didn’t necessarily have someone in mind, but I was still a little surprised.

I was also surprised that there was so much involvement from characters from other Holly Black fae books, Tithe and The Darkest Part of the Forest. There had been a few little mentions of them here and there, but they were way more present in this book than in previous books.

I felt like the big problem that came about by the end was something so out of the blue. There were hints pointing toward it, but I don’t feel like there were enough because I felt like it was just a little bit random.

The ending also felt a little off to me. I enjoyed it and I’m happy overall with it, but for a book with so much angst and murder, it ended in quite a soft way.

I think this is my least favorite book in the series, but I enjoyed it because I already have come to love the series. This is definitely one of my favorite series and I can’t wait to see what Holly Black writes next!
