I’ve returned! I am going to be talking about the cruel prince and the wicked king in this blog post. Both these books were super hyped, and I was very late reading them and was hesitant to read them considering the amount of negativity towards them but I’m so glad I decided to buy them. Starting with the cruel prince, I absolutely loved it I read it in under six hours and couldn’t put it down at all. It has everything I feel like I could ask for, a unique love story, murder, betrayal I mean what more do you need! Once I finished The Cruel Prince, I woke up the next morning and bought the wicked king (I have no restraint) it took me a little longer to get into The Wicked King, but I still finished it in a day. I’m not even going to lie I cried after reading it. Honestly, I have no idea how I’m going to wait a year for The Queen of Nothing but here we are waiting and waiting……
Jude- I love her and would honestly die for her she deserves the world and happiness. I mean she was stolen from her life and put into a world unknown and dangerous to her.
Taryn- She needs to take a chill pill. Honestly i can’t stand her and I hope she gets what she deserves….
Vivi- She’s just trying to live her life and love her woman like why can’t she just get the happiness she deserves.
Madoc- I don’t know if anyone’s else feels this way but i thought he was one of the most interesting characters and I couldn’t hate him. You can tell he cares for Jude and Taryn even in his own twisted ways.
Oriana- I feel like she’s a lot deeper than people think and I feel like she is looking out for Jude whether Jude wants to see it as that or not.
Cardan- Not gonna lie I tired to hate him but I actually love him and think he’s misunderstood and just needs some love especially after reading the wicked king.
Balekin- Tried to hate him. Should hate him.
Nicasia- I think she’s misunderstood and just wants to make her mom happy? But still not sure about her.
Valerian- He got what he deserved let’s be honest……
Favorite quotes from both books
“Most of all, I hate you because I think of you. Often. It’s disgusting, and I can’t stop.”
“But kissing Locke never felt the way that kissing Cardan does, like taking a dare to run over knives, like an adrenaline strike of lightning, like the moment when you’ve swum too far out in the sea and there is no going back, only cold black water closing over your head.”
“He’s flint, you’re tinder.”
“Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.”
“Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to.”
“His mouth curls into a smile. His eyes shine with wicked intent. “Look at them all, your subjects. A shame not a one knows who their true ruler is.”
I would most definitely recommend this. It was great and probably my favorite read of 2019 so far.
