The Cruel Prince

Summary
Holly Black does it again! Though the Cruel Prince starts out a little bit slow if you stick with it the novel is totally pays off. Filled with interesting and complicated characters (new and old), court intrigue and twists to keep you guessing this is a book you should definitely check out. The only downside is now we have to wait for till January for the follow up.
