The Wicked King Book Review

The Wicked King is the second book in the Folk of the Air series by Holly Black.


Jude has tricked Cardan onto the throne, binding him to her for a year and a day. But the new High King does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undimmed. Meanwhile, a traitor in the court is scheming against her. Jude must fight for her life and the lives of those she loves, all while battling her own complicated feelings for Cardan. Now a year and a day seems like no time at all . . .


I really enjoyed this book with the growth of Jude and the relationship she had with Cardan.

There were a lot of twists in this book that I didn’t know what to expect.

I could definitely start to see Cardan’s feelings more but I loved how Jude is motivated to keep her brother safe.

I’m really looking forward to the next book.

4.5/5 stars
