A review by jaykray
The Wicked King by Holly Black


I'm starting to understand why people insist I read the whole trilogy before judging any of the books. The first one felt pretty slow to me but it really picked up in this one and I found the first really set up a great foundation for this one! I really enjoyed Cardan's character exploration and liked how Jude and Cardan bounced off each other, which is what I felt lacked in the first novel.

The ending caught me completely off guard and I genuinely don't understand what's going to happen XD

The writing can be slow and passive sometimes but I'm for sure going to be reading the next book!!
