The characters were forgettable and/or unlikeable, every single irritating thought the MC had was spelled out for us (subtext does not exist in this book), and the story was drab and slow. I was drawn to this book because it was described as a 'dark jewe

Based on the description and title I was expecting this to predominantly be a fantasy romance with a bad boy or perhaps even villainous fairy love interest I really enjoy that sort of thing but was worried it might feel a bit generic and overdoneI was therefore pleasantly surprised to discover that this is basically full blown fantasy with the focus very much on politics plotting and life and death scenarios It s also very strong on showing the emotional conflicts and inner turmoil faced by the characters particularly the lead JudeSpeaking of Jude I was expecting either a kick ass fantasy heroine or a softer romantic lead Again my assumptions were dashed She turned out to be a very dark heroine bordering on antiheroine She kills she plots she does ruthless things And her backstory and her ongoing fears and ambitions are so well set out that you completely understand the things she does and keep rooting for herThe supporting characters were also mostly compelling and nuanced I particularly liked Madoc Jude s adoptive father a bloodthirsty fairy general who killed her biological parents but genuinely loves and cares for her The unusual backstory and set up really add a lot compared to the standard set up of a human girl either wandering into faerie by mistake or discovering she is half fairy herself Jude has grown up as an aristocrat of the fairy world but facing huge prejudice for being biologically human And her feelings towards her adoptive father and adopted land are wonderfully conflictedThe world is set out beautifully and strikes a nice balance between solidly well developed and appropriately dreamlike I didn t realise until close to the end when a cameo made it clear but this is set in the same world as the author s old Tithe novels I didn t enjoy them as much as this but I think the existence of all that existing world building really helped hereAs I ve mentioned romance was much less front and centre than I was expecting though it bubbles under the surface There was a side romance that felt rather throw away and did nothing for me It s uite clear from both the title and the entire set up that Cardan the titular Cruel Prince is meant to be the main love interest though without getting too spoilery there s surprisingly little development on that front in this volume If I had one uibble with the book it s that I was a little disappointed in Cardan I was expecting him to be a bit like the Darkling or similar cruel in a scheming sinister way with lots of ambition but also lots of charm In this instalment at least he was like a petty spoiled school bully albeit one who happened to be a fairy prince and wasn t particularly competent And the way he treated the heroine was unpleasant and not linked to any wider planOverall though this was a really well written and well plotted fantasy with a great heroine and I m really looking forward to the next instalment Ai Weiwei's Blog Writings Interviews and Digital

The hype surrounding The Cruel Prince is pretty extraordinary Everywhere I looked someone was mentioning The Cruel Prince in some capacity Whether it was through a review about the characters about the author or their overall love for the series The reviews had the same sentiment with glowing five stars With this much love I thought it must be good To my surprise I didn t fall in love with this book like everyone else and found myself in the minorityUnpopular opinion incoming Boy was this novel problematic I m going to start with the title With a title such as The Cruel Prince one would assume that The Cruel Prince Cardan would mean the story was centered around the prince or the prince would at least play a significant role in the book However there was neither The novel is actually narrated by Jude a human girl who was taken to Faerie at the age of seven and was raised among the gentry as if she was a fair folk princess At this point I had a feeling it wasn t going to bode well when I realized how misleading the title wasThen we had the heroine Jude Oh how I hated Jude Jude despised the fair folk and yet she desperately wanted to be one of them Hypocrite much She often mentioned how cruel and selfish the gentry were but she literally did everything in her power to be just like them or cruelerbelieving it made her better than them It s not an admirable trait nor something to aspire to Jude had a shitty personality to begin with but it got worst when she joined a secret organization and became a spy for a powerful fair folk All the secrets went straight to her head She went around threatening people and went as far as murdering a fair folk because she thought she was untouchable she claimed self defense but let s get real she wanted to kill him She never felt remorse for her actions and had little to no care for the conseuences and of course it helped that she hid all the proof Many readers saw Jude as a strong kick ass heroine and her actions as self empowering But she was not Jude was nothing than a disgusting and despicable human being How anyone can like her is a mystery to meBefore I read The Cruel Prince I saw people shipping Jude and Cardan Readers normally shipped couples they loved so again I assumed Cardan and Jude were a couple And big shocker they were never a couple From the moment the two characters met all I felt was the loathing animosity and frustration between the two Every exchange and interaction thereafter between Jude and Cardan resulted in either the characters insulting one another or physically attacking one another I was baffled Why would readers approve of this In an early scene Cardan shoved Jude against a wallor tree and proceeded to choke her and tell her how beneath him she was The male character was literally emotionally and physically abusive to the female character and yet readers found this behavior acceptableand I dare say romantic It s not cute or romantic It s sick revolting and unacceptable It may be a fantasy novel and everything was fake but when real people start romanticizing it there s definitively a problem And the book is marketed to teens no less I love a good fantasy novel I even love faeries but this book is not appropriate for children I am surprised the book was approved and published because it was absolute rubbishThe writing was not any better Reviewers praised Black for her lyrical prose and even dubbed her as the ueen of Faeries but I didn t see it The writing wasn t beautiful or lyrical It was simple and basic as they come The world building and characters were poorly developed and in my opinion unremarkable and unlikable I ve read far better faerie novels with complex world building and multifaceted characters and best of all they didn t romanticize abusiveunhealthy relationshipsThe Cruel Prince was one of the worst book I ve read in the last couple of years It seriously boggles my mind how many people love this book As I mentioned the writing was average the world building unimaginative the characters unlikable but it was still nothing compared to an aggressor disguised as a love interest and violence and cruelty disguised as bravery and strength That s messed up and twisted if you asked me And If you haven t read this book yet do yourself a favor and skip it It s not worth your time or your money

There s a couple things you should realize about this book before deciding to read it 1 The reviews are a little over hyped I was looking for something to help me with my book withdrawal after finishing SJ Maas s trilogy This book kept showing up as a recommendation and I finally bit the bullet and downloaded a sample It didn t grasp my attention at the time and I didn t bother buying it instead I read some other books in lieu of this oneNow it s been a while since I downloaded the sample but my thoughts did go back to this book from time to time Something about it DID intrigue meNow this brings me to point 2 The first half of the book isn t the greatest You will probably dislike all of the characters which is a major frustration You can definitely get into the feel of the world and stay there a testament to the author s ability to good writing but the 3 sisters Jude Taryn and Vivi feel like they have no personalities at all The author tries to convince us in a particular chapter that Jude has been through a lot and gives you a glimpse into the twisted way of faeries This is supposed to reinforce our thoughts that Jude is only a lowly pawn with a predestined life filled with misery and misfortune This is why she is dull and non responsive to her own feelings and thoughtsThat wasn t completely supportive enough to justify how bland Jude was Her inner monologues were thoroughly lacking in regards to bringing the story to lifeOnce you hit the second part of the novel that s when things begin to pick up the pace and the book becomes a true page turner It s as if someone else penned the second half of the novel Someone who breathes in life and vigor to the plot Jude becomes sharper smarter wittier I have some issues with that as she was not exactly like that during the first half of the novel And how she concocts a masterful plan and predicts the outcomes is a little above what I thought she was capable of within such a limited time of playing the Fae gameCertain elements and plots come to light It makes you abhor certain characters even and makes you want to find out what some characters are ultimately up to And some even manage to redeem themselves although not entirely just yet There is a lot of potential here for the next novel and I am really looking forward to seeing what Cardan will do to Jude after what goes down at the end of the novel I also want to know what Locke s endgame is True to what he says earlier he is indeed a trickster a very dirty one at that Will Jude also be punished for her crime of murder How will that literally be uncoveredI primarily read adult novels and I do appreciate a good dollop of romance If this was an adult novel I would be expecting uite a few feisty and interesting scenes between Cardan and his new master Jude Sigh One can only wishIf you are on the fence about this novel but do enjoy YA novels with plot twists conspiracy and revenge then I would recommend this book to you Just do yourself a favor and give yourself time to get to the turning point in the novel I promise it gets much intriguing Doctor Who The Witch Hunters probably dislike all of the characters which is a major
