Book Review: The Cruel Prince
By: Haley Troha
The Cruel Prince, by Holly Black, is a thrilling fantasy read. The story is told from the perspective of Jude Duarte, an ambitious mortal girl in the land of faeries. In a world where cruelty is more common than kindness, Jude must become ruthless enough to best her enemies, achieve her ambitions, and avoid the dark web of lies and deceptions that may just reshape the entirety of the kingdom. With twists, turns, betrayals, and illusions at every turn, this book is filled with adventure and conquest, and the ultimate choice between power or goodness. I highly recommend this book and the other two in this series.
