The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Rating:  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.5
The entire time I read this novel I was filled with questions. Why? Why is this happening? I was never sure what Jude’s next move would be. I was immediately drawn into the action and rooting for Jude even when her decisions frustrated me.

Why would someone as independent and stubborn as Jude swear allegiance to Prince Dain? It seemed initially like a complete compromise of who she is. Then I understood Jude is distraught at being a powerless human in the world fairies and that she has been without power for 10 years and this has caused her to seek advantages in a court that will never accept her. Jude hopes her allegiance will help her to become a part of the court. This is how Jude becomes further & further intertwined in the politics of the court.
