Review | The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black

He looks up at me with his night-colored eyes, beautiful and terrible all at once. ‘For a moment,’ he says, ‘I wondered if it wasn’t you shooting bolts at me.’
I make a face at him. “And what made you decide it wasn’t?”
He grins up at me. ‘They missed.’”
4.5/5 stars!

Attention! This book contains: betrayals, fake queens, missed arrows, raw fish, arranged weddings, maskerades, hambushes, drop shaped earrings, bargains, poisons and good word choices.

Wow, I’m really loving this series! In the first book, there was a major plot twist at the end and I immediately knew I had to pick the next book ASAP. I wasn’t disappointed when I finished the second book, because it was even better than the first book. I’m really enjoying this series because there is always something happening and is always difficult to put the books down. I’m loving the dark romance, the book’s fae theme, the strong female character, the twists and turns… It’s just amazing.

In this book we discover who “already betrayed” Jude, and I have to say… I was shocked. I didn’t expect the traitor to be who it was, but it definitely made the story more interesting. Still, I think the best part of the book for me was definitely the ending! My jaw dropped when I read those paragraphs, I just couldn’t believe what was happening! I would never see that coming in a million years. I wasn’t even angry… I was just shocked.

I’ve already started the third and last book of this series – because, you know, I had to know what happened after that ending – and I’m loving it. I honestly don’t want this series to be over!

xoxo, Neide
