An instant bestseller! By #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue. 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.… (més)

I’m not sure what to think of this book. I didn’t dislike it, but it was a huge struggle to get through at times.
It started out amazing, with a whimsical description of the fairy world and the complex relations between Jude, her two sisters, step parents and baby brother.

Then all of it just disappeared? Jude and Taryn get bullied a lot, we’re supposed to feel sorry for Cardan because he secretly gets bullied too, but I disliked him too much to bother, and there is a coup I predicted from the first few chapters. The whole plot about stealing kingdoms and killing siblings was fine, just not interesting enough to keep my attention.

The romance was.... dumb. Jude likes a guy, who turned out to be playing her and her sister against each other, and instead of plotting revenge together, they fight each other? That was a dumb plot. I honestly didn’t care for Cardan, no sad story will excuse his terrible behaviour, and Jude kissing him made zero sense to me.

One thing I loved in this book was the use words and trickery. Fae cannot lie, but Jude can. In the end, when she crowned Cardan king while he has to obey her for a year, I was actually proud of her. She started with nothing and practically rules Elfhame in the end. ( )

I liked this book. I did, but one thing bugged me above all else. Jude hated being human and seemed to have low self-esteem because of it. She kept describing all the different Faeries with horns, tails, hooves and green skin as beautiful which baffled me because, you know, ick.

The book begins with a Fae named Madoc arriving at six or seven year-old Jude's house and killing her mom and dad in front of her twin sister and older sister, Vivi.

It turns out that her mom was married to Madoc in Faerie but while he was away at war, she faked her and Vivi’s, his daughter, death and ran off to the human realm with another human. Madoc discovered the truth and killed them both. He then told the three girls that it was now his responsibility to raise them. He put them all on a horse and rode away to Faerie.

Ten years later, Jude and her twin Taryn have adjusted to Faerie and even love Madoc who has treated them well and has given them everything they need. Vivi is still not a fan of his.

But humans aren't treated very nice in Faerie. Faeries get bored easily and think it's entertaining to enthrall humans and make them do what they say or make unfair bargains with them which can end up badly for the humans. Humans who don't have powerful fathers like Jude can end up being servants who waste away because their Faerie masters overwork them, starve them and forget to let them sleep. These humans do it happily because they are in a magical daze.

Madoc is a general so Jude and Taryn have protection but they get picked on at school by one of the princes and his friends. Taryn tells Jude that she makes it worse by being defiant and not cowering to them.

Jude hates that she is just human and has no powers. She's an excellent swordsman though and thinks if she becomes a knight, it will earn her the respect of the Faeries. She just has to convince Madoc.

The story and plot were interesting enough that I want to continue with the series. Unfortunately, the next book doesn't come out until January 2019. I didn't realize that or I probably wouldn't have started reading this series. I like binge reading so I choose series that have at least three books already published. Hopefully, I'll still be interested by the time the second book comes out.

Holly Black is one of my favorite YA authors and I've enjoyed every single one of her faerie lore books. She is very good with characterisations and building a world around those characters in a way that is easy to visualize and thus immerse yourself in as the reader - this book is no exception. If you've liked any of Holly's previous Faerie novels then you're sure to love this one. I cannot wait for the sequel! ( )

I didn't particularly care for this book. I tried to get involved with the story but I think I didn't vibe with the author's writing style. I DNF-ed it. ( )
