"A dark jewel of a book . . . intoxicating" - Leigh Bardugo، للمؤلف صاحب الكتاب الأكثر مبيعًا في نيويورك تايمز Six of Crows
بالطبع أريد أن أكون مثلهم. إنهم يتميزوا بالجمال كشفرات تم تشكيلها في بعض النار الإلهية. سيعيشون إلى الأبد.
والكاردان أكثر جمالاً من البقية. أكرهه أكثر من الآخرين. أكرهه كثيرًا لدرجة أنني أحيانًا عندما أنظر إليه، أجد صعوبة في التنفس.
ذات صباح فظيع ترى جود وأخواتها والديهم يقتلون أمام أعينهم. يقوم القاتل المرعب باختطاف الفتيات الثلاث إلى عالم الجن، حيث تم تثبيت جود في البلاط الملكي ولكن سخر منها ووتم تعذيبها من قبل ملوك الجن لكونهم بشر. مع تقدم جود في السن، أدركت أنها ستحتاج إلى المشاركة في الخدع الخطيرة للإنتماء إلى الأبد.
لكن سلم السلطة محفوف بالظلال والخيانة. ويلوح في الأفق الأمير كاردان الغاضب والمتغطرس الكاريزمي.
يمتزج الخيال الدرامي والمثير بسلاسة مع سرد القصص الآسر لخلق عالم واقعي بالكامل ومغري، مليء بالسحر والرومانسية.

نبذة عن الكتاب
بالطبع أريد أن أكون مثلهم. فهم يتسمون بالجمال مثل الشفـرات المزيفة في بعض النيران الإلهية. سوف يعيشون إلى الأبد.
وكاردان أجملهم. أكرهه أكثر من الآخرين جميعًا. أكرهه كثيرًا لدرجة أنني أحيانًا عندما أنظر إليه، أجد صعوبة في التنفس.
كانت جود تبلغ من العمر سبع سنوات عندما قُتل والداها وسرقت هي وشقيقتيها لتعيش في محكمة الجن العليا الغادرة. بعد عشر سنوات، لا تريد جود أكثر من الانتماء إلى هناك، على الرغم من وفاتها. لكن العديد من الجن يحتقرون البشر. خاصة الأمير كاردان، الابن الأصغر والأشر للملك السامي.
للفوز بمكان في المحكمة، عليها أن تتحداه وتواجه العواقب.
وبذلك، تتورط في مكائد القصر والخداع، وتكتشف قدرتها على إراقة الدماء. ولكن بينما تهدد الحرب الأهلية بإغراق محاكم الجن بالعنف، ستحتاج جود إلى المخاطرة بحياتها في تحالف خطير لإنقاذ أخواتها، والجن أنفسهم.
Stands out amid a plethora of fairy-court fantasies . . . Complex, nuanced characters, frank sensuality and thorn-sharp, intricate storytelling all conspire to ensnare. ― Guardian Published On: 2018-01-27
Whatever a reader is looking for-heart-in-throat action, deadly romance, double-crossing, moral complexity-this is one heck of a ride ― Booklist
I require book two immediately. Holly Black is the Faerie Queen. ― Victoria Aveyard
An enjoyable read ― SFX Magazine
I am awarding this book 5*/5 with no hesitation - it was lively, gripping, exciting, and had some amazing plot twists which kept me turning the pages ― Sammy's Shelf
It's only a week into 2018 and I've already fallen in love with a new author, Holly Black. I know I'm extremely late to this party, but wow her books are good. If you like faeries but also messy and complicated humans, trust me you'll love her! ― What Rhi Read
Holly Black creates an enticing world that's as sinister as it is appealing, and a heroine more than equipped to manoeuvre within. Impossible not to enjoy. Shadowhunters fan should read this at their earliest opportunity ― SciFi Now
A veritable queen of dark fantasy, Holly Black spins a thrilling tale of intrigue and magic in her newest novel. Ten years after the faeries murdered her parents and stole her away, 17 year old Jude is fighting to be accepted by her captors. Unmissable for fans of Sarah J. Mass and the Grisha trilogy ― Buzzfeed UK
This splendidly wicked and richly created story is one you won't want to miss ― Buzzfeed
With brave world building, complex characters and an intriguing plot all piled into one novel, this is a huge success ― The Page Is Printed
Fantasy adventure at its brilliant, intelligent, thought-provoking best ― LoveReading
In this story she has once again proved why she is known by some as the 'Queen of Faerie because she successfully creates a dark, twisted world inspired by the old folktales where the fae are capricious and cruel, yet sets it alongside a modern world that feels all too familiar ― Chrikaru Blog
A gripping tale packed with beautiful writing, a well crafted world, complex characters and fast paced action. The book definitely felt like a set up for something much bigger that I can't wait to get my hands on ― Amy Jane Alice
Holly Black created a world of Faerie that is ruthless, cruel and dangerous and it's so much fun to see all of that unfold over the course of the story! ― The Caffeinated Bookworm Life
The way Black spins the world is honestly mesmerizing. We've got faerie courts of every kind, each as mysterious and bloody wicked as you can possibly imagine. The creatures are varied, from pixies to undines to goblins. She uses phrases and descriptions in the best way possible to not only make you feel like you're actually there, but you can practically taste the sickly sweet faerie fruits and the dark magic in the air ― Stones of Rome
Holly Black has a way of weaving the fantastical into reality that few other authors manage with any real success. Whether she's writing about vampires or faeries, Black creates worlds so real that you risk losing yourself in them ― Wondra's World
I really cannot recommend The Cruel Prince highly enough. If you've read Holly's other books you'll get an extra kick out of it, but you don't need to, as this is a separate series. I'm already dying for book 2 and I can't believe I have to wait a year for it. I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to cope! ― The Untitled Book Blog
I can see why Holly is known as the Queen of Faeries. With this book alone, I was able to see that she knows this world well and has the ability to craft a rich and compelling story filled with evocative details that made me feel as though I were navigating Faerie myself. As if I could taste the sickening sweetness of the faerie fruit and run my fingers over the embroidery of the vibrant fabrics making up gowns for the balls. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about the book, the characters, the impending danger which left me uneasy, until I had devoured it all. Just the right amount of things are resolved, and the explosive ending leaves the perfect set up for a sequel that could be even better than this. If, like me, you enjoy reading about morally grey characters and how far they are willing to go to gain power, then you should give this book a shot. It was my first Holly Black novel and it will certainly not be the last. I can't wait to discover what other worlds she has created - maybe that will help with the agonising wait for book 2 ― Violette Books
A dark and beguiling fantasy that sees how human strengths and weaknesses can be used for good and bad. This addictive tale and its vibrant cast of characters has hints of King Arthur's Court and a knight's quest with a magical twist ― South Wales Evening Post
this book knocked my socks off. Honestly, it had the perfect mix of court intrigue, well thought-out plot twists, amazing character development and sizzling chemistry (*swoon*) ― Chased by my Imagination
If you love old school fairytales and a dark, twisted plot, then you must read The Cruel Prince. I'm still amazed and cannot stop thinking about it ― Astra Litte
Holly Black writes beautifully, that's a fact. I was hooked from the very first chapter until the very last sentence of the book, this is so addictive you can't stop reading before knowing everything. And at the end you come asking for more ― Beauty and the Bookstore
This book is a real page turner! I was totally engrossed by the first chapter and it gets better and better whole the way through. I'm so sad that I've finished this book, I crave its sequel right now ― MisLivsie
Packed with court intrigues, vendettas and tangled loves and lineages and betrayals ― Geek Chocolate
This is a great start to a series and I'm now looking for other Holly Black books to read because I love her writing style. I love all things fey and have read numerous books in a similar setting and this is one of my favourite ― Shutterpug
The Cruel Prince was a refreshing read first and foremost. Void of unnecessary YA tropes and cliche characters, it made me giddy and reminded me of the days I could read YA fantasy without throwing the book across my room at least once. (Maybe there is hope yet). The story started right of the bat with gruesome murder (not a spoiler) wasting no time with finery and capturing my attention with an iron grip. And from there it went uphill. The pace was steady and fast with a captivating story line. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entirety of the time and the second half of the book, oh my lord. It was impossible to move my eyes from my book, even for a second! ― Bookishues
If you're looking for an amazing book about faeries, with great characters and amazing world building, look no further. I could probably go on for days but I definitely recommend you pick this up. Regardless if you've read any of Holly Black's previous works, it won't let you down ― Midsummer Night's Read
This book was fantastic. We were given a magical world filled with wonder, fantasy and lots of bloodlust. This book has everything you could need in a Young Adult novel, a strong willed heroin, an angst filled bad boy and of course a whirlwind romance ― The Star
an intriguing dark fantasy novel with a fascinating array of characters ― The Owl on the Bookshelf
This is a very clever and intricate book, and I am seriously looking forward to more political intrigue, plotting, spying, murders, revenge and clever ways to avoid lying in the next installment ― Book For Thought
Dark and twisted, this Faerie-tale kept me hooked from beginning to end with its glorious twists and turns ― Kelly's Ramblings
A very compelling and dramatic start to what I'm sure will be a very successful series. Holly Black has a way of ingeniously mixing just the right amount of action, tension, viciousness and romance in with the fantastical. She has created a fearsome world and even more fearsome characters. Jude is a force to be reckoned with, humanly flawed but fierce and strong. I loved her. The only problem now is, we have to wait until next year for the sequel. Hurry up Holly, my mortal heart could barely take the cliffhanger ending ― Askews Newsletter
The Cruel Prince was a surprising and fantastic read. Though I only bought this because it was at such a good price, it has such a complex and dark plot. I couldn't help but find myself comparing it to Game of Thrones for expecting the unexpected ― Book Mood Reviews
The Cruel Prince was one of the first YA fantasy books published in 2018 and whilst the whole year is still ahead of us, it's likely to be one of the best too. The long wait for book two has already begun. ― Culture Fly
Jude is a brilliant, furious creature - the product of murder, danger and brutality, strength built upon her fragility and weaknesses as a mere mortal, easily swayed and damaged by the world around her. ― Hux Tales
I found this absolutely compelling, mesmerizing even, as Black reeled me into this incredible world she created. Her imagery is tremendously vivid, but this is definitely a book I'd love to see played out on screen, just to see how all of the characters and the kingdom around them look. Black masterfully weaved suspense, intrigue, emotions, violence, and even a little romance to fantastic effect. ― Either Sadness Or Euphoria
I obviously loved this book. Definitely a 5/5 stars for me! It threw so much at you and everything stuck. I loved every aspect of this book and can't wait to get deeper into this faerie realm that Black is building for us. ― Thrice Read
I absolutely loved it. I found the writing rich and full of details (not too much though) and this drew me into the world. ― Fleur’s Makeup Box
The Cruel Prince is a dark, twisty tale of jealousy, cruelty, betrayals and political intrigue and I thoroughly enjoyed it. ― For What It’s worth
If you like the idea of a dark faerie young adult book, I definitely recommend The Cruel Prince as a fulfilling read. The story is quite unique for its genre, and the characterisation is extremely good for young adult fiction ― Geeks Media
Enjoyable story around a surprisingly relatable teenage drama. From school bullies, flings and finding your own place in a crazy and violent world, Holly Black has created an interesting new take on the well known fae story ― A Novel Way To Move
The writing is terrific, as is the quasi-Jacobean plotting ― New Statesman
An exceptional achievement! It's fast paced and complex, the characters are complicated and three dimensional, the sense of atmosphere and detail is captivating. In fact it feels almost like a faerie version of Game of Thrones, with level of ambiguity and viciousness that is truly refreshing for a story in this genre. One of the most enjoyable and immersive reading experiences of the last twelve months ― Starburst Magazine
This was so hyped to me that I somehow created an image in my head of how this book would be and, honestly, you can't even comprehend how wrong I was. Nothing was like I expected and I don't even know how I can up with so many preconceived notions when in reality I knew nothing about this book. But holy sh*t, do I need The Wicked King right. Now ― Imi Reviews Books
The storyline was without a doubt too, one of the best I've read in awhile. It was all very enchanting with a constantly surprising turn of events and plenty of danger and deception. I was always on edge wondering if something major was going to happen because it really all just came on so suddenly sometimes and I loved that. There was never a lapse in storyline either so it was a constant stream that made it very hard to put down since I never really had the feeling of being tired of it. Now, like everyone else who has read this book, I'm in for the torturous wait for the second book and I'm so eager to get my hands on it. Just like this book the sequel, The Wicked King, is sure to be one of the most anticipated releases of the year in 2019 ― Bookish Kirra
I loved this story and highly recommend to anyone who likes YA books with strong female character, snarky comments and lots of action ― Blind Date with Books
The Cruel Prince is a story both of faeries and political intrigue, of magic and mind control, swords and knives and poison. It is beautiful mix of the modern world and the magic of faerie stories ― Library to Living Room
What a beautifully stunning book. I can't be more excited for the next book in the series. Wow, what a cliffhanger. So messy and so very very delightful ― Tor's Imagination
Full of visceral descriptions and real, interesting characters, Holly Black's world of Faery is a brutal beast, and one that's hard to put down ― Lipsyy
An author always to watch out for, Holly Black's new series doesn't disappoint... this tale of a kingdom and deadly power struggles as seen through human eyes in asn absolute must read ― Irish Independent
A lush, immersive experience that will delight readers who have enjoyed The Game of Thrones where plot and counter-plot are the norm; where little is what it seems ― Books For Keeps
a pacey, engaging read, but with enough substance to be really satisfying, and Black gives us delicious tidbits of larger parts of the fairy world that I really hope will be explored later on. I'm looking forward to the next installment ― Isabelle Marie Flynn
I also loved how the story unfolded. Black set up her plot line brilliantly and through well placed though not super obvious hints you could vaguely figure out where things were going to go. It was well crafted and still allowed room for a few surprises.I highly recommend this fast paced and bloody read ― Northern Plunder
The Cruel Prince kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Jude was a really edgy, imperfect, relate-able character and I really liked her ― Book Nerd Rambling
Skulduggery, machinations, ruthless political maneovring, - this is what you need from a book set in the Faerie Courts, and The Cruel Prince delivers in spades! Featuring love, betrayal, desire and divided loyalties, all the characters are rounded, complex creations that feel vivid and real. The plotting is twisty and slippery and springs surprises that the reader doesn't see coming. A wonderful subversion of the changeling trope and the author's best book so far ― Inis Reading Guide
Very catchy and you want to keep on reading ... I can't wait for the next book ― Teen Titles

My first time in Elfhame left a bad impression. I felt so out of step because everyone was gushing about The Cruel Prince and I was on the outside thinking ‘I just don’t get it.’ That’s partly why I do not like reading books mid hype.
A friend talked me into reading The Wicked King, a little longer in the world of Elfhame and I finally felt like I was starting to get it.
With Queen of Nothing on the horizon I decided to participate in a readalong with two people who haven’t yet stepped into the world Holly created.
Despite having read it… Despite knowing every twist and turn… I loved it.
I think people should be warned that this isn’t your typical YA story, you’ll step into Elfhame, you’ll be surrounded by cruel, beautiful, wicked creatures and you’ll probably question your own morals when you fall in love with them. There’s still plenty of characters I hate, don’t get me wrong but there’s a lot I can’t help loving.
It’s full of danger, betrayal, bloodshed, manipulation and cunning. Cunning above all else because the Folk cannot lie so they have to be especially clever with everything they say and do.
During my first read it was hard to grasp that along with the new world setting and everything else but this time I paid attention to every word.
If you’re like me, if you love everything fae and you’re unsure about this, my advice is to read it twice. Give yourself a wee break between reads and see where it takes you the second time around. I’m so glad I gave it another go. I am now really and truly obsessed.
Here’s one of my favourite moments;
“Take care,” he says, and then smiles. “It would be very dull to have to sit here for an entire day just because you went and got yourself killed.”
“My last thoughts would be of your boredom,” I tell him.
A edição em capa dura é uma das coisas mais lindas que eu já vi, as fotos não fazem justiça!! De perto ele é todo dourado e brilhante, sou completamente apaixonada. Porém, a versão em paperback (capa mole) veio com um conto extra no final, que não tem na versão em capa dura. Não é nada essencial a história, mas é um conto interessante, ainda mais para quem também leu The Modern Faerie Tales, pois é sobre a Kaye.
This book! My gosh! I went in to this not sure what to expect. I had heard the hype and I'd also heard conflicting reviews.
Well - I use caps sparingly but the situation calls for them - I LOVED IT!
Firstly, I inhaled this book in 24 hours. I couldn't put it down.
The History and Politics teacher in me was jumping up and down at the fantastic political intrigue and scheming. I loved the correlations between medieval courts and power. I sat on the edge of my seat throughout this book, shouting 'Noooo' in absolute shock at some of the twists. This book is all about the tension, drama and action. And with the ultimate enemies-to-lovers story at the heart of it - what's not to like?
I was afraid at the beginning that I wouldn't like it since it follows a lot of the original mythologies of faeries, e.g. Seelie and unseelie, etc. Being Irish and raised on superstition, I'm not a fan of these faery tales but it worked for this book.
"This is the least of what I can do."
And with that I've already started reading The Wicked King with untold anticipation of where the schemes are going to next...

Blurb of book 1:
Ever since Jude lost her parents to an assassination, she has lived with her twin Taryn and sister Vivi in the faerie world, with the assassin's family. Being a mortal in the ruthless faerie world isn't easy and she has to become as cruel as the faeries, if not more, to survive. Especially because of the youngest prince of Faeries, Prince Cardan.
TW- Murder Suicide, Abandonment & Bullying
It is a great YA fantasy to binge on. I completed it in a few days. Definitely gonna reread this someday. I totally ship #jurdan 🥰🥺!
To be frank, I didn't like the first book as much as I liked the other two, as was the case with many other readers.
So I plead you to continue reading this trilogy even if the first book wasn't your cup of tea.
And I am sure you will like this trilogy.
The illustrated novella, How the king of elfhame learned to hate stories has recently released and I am hoping to get it soon.
This story was so full of twists and turns. Honestly, there were a lot of aspects of this story that were BRUTAL. Some of the Fae in The Cruel Prince are cunning, and malicious, and not to be trusted. The Game-Of-Thrones-style scenes were shocking, and you could never fully tell where the story was going - which is something I love about a fantasy book/series. Our main character, Jude, while an exciting and bad*ss character, is often an unreliable narrator. She's often so blinded by her own goals and emotions that stepping stones to major plot twists are so easily missed, and I adored that about this story.
Every character in this novel was a villain to some extent, which was so refreshing and exciting. This is a world without consequence, and the lengths to which some characters go to achieve their goals, or to put others down, is on another level. Not only was bullying life-threatening, there were also elements of abuse within families, which made this such an intense, and heart-wrenching read. All throughout, there was a constant underlying question of morals , which were pushed and stretched and often discarded altogether.
With Kings and Queens, Seelie and Unseelie courts, this was a novel filled with politics, which can either help or hinder a readers enjoyment. Learning the dynamics of Faerie, be it the politics, to the glamours, to the poisonous fruits, was so fascinating from start to finish that I could hardly get enough of it. While we're provided with a stunning map at the beginning of this book, the descriptive writing makes it all too easy to picture and get lost within this world. Overall, I was not expecting this novel to be how it was going in, and fell in love with the world and brave and brutal characters within it. Though it was filled with cruelty and deception, this book emphasised the love within families, the problems within relationships, particularly those with uneven power dynamics, and even showcased some great LGBT+ representation.
TW: bullying, murder, suicide, abuse, and loss of parents.
