Wow, wow, wow! What a great, captivating read this was. I literally finished this book within a 24 hour period, just couldn’t put it down. Needless to say, this review will be a 5-star ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ ✨ review and a major fan-girl event.
Not sure how many people will agree with me when I say; “Move over Prince Maven, there’s a new prince in town and he’s here to take names and break hearts” none-the-less this is my opinion and my review… so I say what I want. 😝
This book started in a bloody gore and finished with one too. There was intrigue, love, betrayal, unkept promises, mysteries, deception, need, hate, drama, cruelty, a beautiful prince and a mortal girl who’s power hungry. I could spew so many more adjectives but none would do it any justice. You just need to read it.
Lets talk about the characters… Jude… Jude is our main female character, she is a strong willed girl who is so in need to fit into the world she’s in. She’s a mortal girl in the land of immortal fearries. She’s stubborn and doesn’t back down from a fight.
Prince Carden… youngest heir to the throne as High King and has no interest in it. Mean, cruel, beautiful and a complete jerk… until he isn’t… I literally wanted to kick his a$$ for the first 60% of the book, and then we learn more and more about him and why he acts the way he does.
I have so much to say about this book, but I don’t want to give anything away, so instead I’m going to put some of my favourite quotes from it. I hope you all will give it a chance and share your thought with me.

“I don’t yearn to be their equal. In my heart, I yearn to best them.”
“There’s always something left to lose.”
“Love is a noble cause. How can anything done in the service of a noble cause be wrong?”
“Our lives are the only real thing we have, our only coin. We get to buy what we want with them.”
