Since The Wicked King is the sequel to Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince, I will not be providing a summary. For my The Cruel Prince thoughts, check out my mini review.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
Cover Lust?: Yes! I love the similarities to The Cruel Prince’s cover and the nods to what happens in the book
As many of you know, Holly Black’s The Cruel Prince took over the online book communities in 2018. The hype for TCP definitely pulled me in, and while I did enjoy it, I wasn’t head-over-heels in love unlike many readers. Until The Wicked King came along.
I can 100% say that it was worth surviving a mosh pit at Book Expo 2018 to get an ARC of The Wicked King because this book is freaking fantastic. While it was the first 2019 release that I’ve read so far, I can easily say it’s one of the best 2019 releases.
