About This Book

Recommended by Renee Ahdeih, author of The Wrath and the Dawn.

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

As Jude becomes more deeply embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, she discovers her own capacity for trickery and bloodshed. But as betrayal threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

An enthralling, one of a kind story. In this enemies to lovers book, Jude and Cardan's developing dynamic will keep you glued from start to finish. From the first page to the last, you are brought along for a heart-breaking, terrifying yet fulfilling journey. I would definitely recommend this book to any YA fantasy lover.
