Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.
And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.
Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.
To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.
In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
First book of this author that I read, I think this story was the typical live good that is going to the victim everywhere and the bad prince who does whatever he wants, but no, really is very different from how I imagined , the protagonist that his name is Jude has a twin named Taryn and an older sister named Vivianne. Jude is a very strong character, is not left by anyone, the hatred she has and Cardan (the Cruel prince) is truly exciting, I know, it is rare to say this but I really like the dark of this story, there is nothing pink in it and that made me like it a lot The story. The world of this writer is very detailed and beautiful, they talk a lot about the food and the feasts that celebrate, at no time I was bored and kept me very intrigued, but the main thing, fairies! These fairies are very different and dark, bad as we know them, they can not lie and always what is an exchange of interests, you must be careful. The character of Cardan I did not fall ill, the opposite, as you know I always like bad characters, and I mean bad in every way, not only are bad in moments of convenience, rather Cardan is a prince capricious and gets what he wants , but there is an exception, I do not like to give spoilers, you know what I mean when you read. This book is fantasy and I think it will love the fans of this genre, I recommend a lot.
