The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Holly Black's Modern faerie tales series happens to be one of the first series that I read from the author and while it was a while ago I still remember how good the series was and how much I enjoyed it so when I saw this book by the same author I was excited to give it a try I had pretty high expectation given I had already see what the Author could weave into a book and I was not disappointed
I found that The cruel prince was such an easy read which shocked me given how amazing and interesting and dark the book was times I feared I might find myself getting bored of the whole political side of things but in truth I found myself eating the book up like I was half starved in truth. The character are all solid and have such detailed differences rather then some book where you can tell the difference from one character from the next and the only true difference is normally the main but not in this book each character was highly thought over and made into solid players in the book which made it all the more interesting to read.
Now the story is unlike any I have read before well thought out and made into something stunning and dark it gave me such a smile while reading it and not knowing where it was going. When you read a book we all try and guess the outcome or the love intrest or who might back stab who or what the characters are shaping into so many things but sometimes when you start and already pretty much know where the story is heading it came be a little bit of a let down so reading this was like being blind folded and told to find a exit in a maze and no matter how much you tried you are not getting out and it was so exciting reading a book that was totally out of your reach to guess and it left you suprices and happy when you are wrong it was a thrill so pleased.
I don't think I found anything that made me question how splendid the book was normally while reading there is always something that makes you mad or just a little thing that disappointed you but nothing I read this book and not once did I find something that had me question how perfect I found this book. I could really sing praises to this book all day long and only have one problem now waiting for book two is going to kill me.
