Offers new delights along with familiar moments retold...fans will rejoice in every dark, luscious moment.--Kirkus
Praise for The Cruel Prince:
Lush, dangerous, a dark jewel of a book. Black's world is intoxicating, imbued with a relentless sense of peril that kept me riveted through every chapter of Jude's journey. And Jude!

* Another fantastic, deeply engaging, and all-consuming work from Black that belongs on all YA shelves.--School Library Journal, starred review

*[A] dangerous journey filled with mystery, betrayal, intrigue, and romance.... Larger-than-life action in a kingdom packed with self-centered, evil, and manipulating characters also doles out real life issues.--VOYA, starred review
*A compelling final piece in a powerful set.--Booklist, starred review
*A heady blend of courtly double-crossing, Faerie lore, and toxic attraction swirls together in the sequel to THE CRUEL PRINCE....

*A rare second volume that surpasses the first, with, happily, more intrigue and passion still to come.--Booklist, starred review
*Black returns here to the dark faerie realm that spurred her initial success, and if anything, she's only gotten better, writing with an elegant, economical precision and wringing searing emotional resonance from the simplest of sentences. --The Bulletin, starred review
*Black returns to the realm of faerie for her latest novel, and the results, as any of her fans would expect, are terrific.--VOYA, starred review
Black's stark, eerie tone; propulsive pacing; and fulsome world building will certainly delight her legion of fans.--Booklist
I require book two immediately. Holly is the Faerie Queen.--Victoria Aveyard, #1 bestselling author of The Red Queen series
It's an enjoyable read with well-developed characters and genuine chills... --Publishers Weekly
Like a true fairy tale, Black's story weds blinding romance and dark terrors, but her worthy heroes are up to the challenge of both.--The Horn Book
This edgy, dark fantasy will be a hit with young adults who like their magical creatures to live in a recognizably contemporary world.--Library Media Connection
This is a heady blend of Faerie lore, high fantasy, and high school drama, dripping with description that brings the dangerous but tempting world of Faerie to life. Black is building a complex mythology; now is a great time to tune in.--Kirkus Reviews
