The story takes up from where it ended. After sending Oak with Vivi to the human world and making Cardan the High King , Jude becomes his seneschal. The story proceeds as Balekin and the Undersea conspire to bring Cardan down and take hold of the land.
The story also included some interesting characters but they didn't play much roles as I expected them to (Like Cardan's mother and some other characters.)
The story sometimes turn out to be very stupid and there are ludicrous moments when I just wanted to do away with the book. But still I managed to finish it and I'm happy that I was done with my January reading plans.
About the book: After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished. .
🎄My Thoughts: Holly is a queen of YA fantasy, after reading the cruel prince, I was not that flabbergasted or either happy with her writing. It was good definitely but it wasn't as I expected from her but after reading: The Wicked King is such a beautiful work. It is so gorgeous, so beautiful & so magical. Once I picked it picked, I just couldn't keep it down. The book definitely has my heart💕
📚Right from the beginning, I was so intrigued, her writing is more intricate this time than the earlier book📚 I just loved it very much.
What's good in the book?
♥The writing is so pure, lovely & had a very magical effect on my mind.
After alot of days I could get something like this to read. This was on my tbr since long, as it was the most anticipated read of the read. The characters are so beautiful & so heart touching. I loved Cardan, very well built. I am not sure if it is trilogy but I will be happy if I get it, haha!
What didn't worked: Though the book is really fast paced but am not that satisfied with the ending, also some characters with whom I got so well connected, suddenly disappeared & it was heart breaking💔
Yet, I highly recommend it to all the Holly lovers & YA peoples.
🌸P.s I will re read it again, it's the best read of the month!
