“Why am I the way I am?” His tone makes it clear he’s proposing something I might suggest he ask, not really wondering about it. “There are no real answers, Jude. Why was I cruel to Folk? Why was I awful to you? Because I could be. Because I liked it. Because, for a moment, when I was at my worst, I felt powerful, and most of the time, I felt powerless, despite being a prince and the son of the High King of Faerie.”

“I hate you,” I breathed into his mouth. “I hate you so much that sometimes I can’t think of anything else.”
She did it again; Holly Black just killed me with this book. I am just going to crawl into a hole, curl up in a ball and stay there until Queen of Nothing releases next year. The Wicked King was nothing short of amazing. I loved every single page of it. I was literally glued to my hands the minute I opened it up the day it came in the mail and devoured it that night.
This was one of my most anticipated reads for 2019 and it will differently be on my 10 reads for 2019. I just love this world so much and Jude and Carden are life. Their high tension enemies to lovers (ahh maybe still enemies) romance is my everything. I just love them as characters and reading their interactions and banter just takes my breath away. And oh my, that jaw dropping, heart stopping ending is what did me in, I can’t even handle what just happened and now I have to wait for what feels like an eternity to see what will happen next.
I just cannot give enough praise for this series; it has become one of my all-time favorite series. If you have not read this yet I urge you pick it as you will not regret it.
