Mening: Ik ben helemaal gek op deze serie. De spanningen die Holly kan creëren zijn geweldig en ik blijf haar geweldig vinden schrijven. Het enige wat ze wel even moet begrijpen, is dat het niet oke is om mij zo te laten mee leven met een serie (oke, of wel). Want the feels met deze serie zijn ernstig. Ik heb genoten van dit boek, van begin tot eind en er waren twists die ik echt niet zag aankomen. De wereld is fascinerend en zo ook de personages in deze wereld. I’m sold.

Synopsis: You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

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.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
