Rachel Reads Ravenously

^^^ me when I finished this novella and it was a fucking CLIFFHANGER.

Ugh. I had no clue it was a cliffhanger. I would have waited to read it!!! I need time to cool off. Rating and review to come when I am less angry about a novella with a cliffy and the next book is being released a fucking year from now.

I've read pretty much all of Armentrout's books, and this novella did not let me down! The Wicked series has been an awesome ride, so I was pretty ecstatic to see the Prince was getting a novella along with Brighton.

The Prince is a unique character that we learn more about as you get into the novella. As for Brighton, I loved her! Plus, we get more of Tink and his awesomeness. What I liked about this novella was it wasn't just about a romance. It had a great story and a bond that slowly progress

I really don't feel like this was a novella that the original Wicked trilogy needed. I enjoyed reading Brighton's story and also the little update we got about Ivy and Ren. But I just couldn't stand the prince, he had some good features but his behaviour was just a big no for me. Thankfully Tink was just the little funny creature we all came to know and love.

The Prince was everything I absolutely love about Jennifer L. Armentrout! It was a page turner, had a sigh worthy male, a heroine I loved, an addicting storyline, and by just that second chapter I found myself bawling my eyes out. Between the tears, smiles and laughter, my emotions were all over the place. JLA packed so much emotion and action into this book that I still can't believe I was reading a novella. I absolutely loved The Prince and I was left feeling so excited to see what happens in ...more

The Prince is a novella set in the A Wicked trilogy universe after the events of the final novel, Brave. As with all 1001 Nights novellas, The Prince can be read as a stand-alone story within the A Wicked trilogy universe. However, I wouldn’t recommend reading it unless you’ve read the original trilogy. Though The Prince does a fantastic job of keying in readers about past events, readers will inevitable be missing out on key emotional beats and context. So, with that said, let’s proceed to my r ...more

So, so good! 4.5 stars!

This novella is a spin off from The Wicked Trilogy, and takes us straight back into JLA’s fantastic urban fantasy world set in downtown New Orleans where the fae exist and prey on unsuspecting humans. It’s fast paced, fun and exciting with a sense of intrigue and the beginnings of a UST-filled romance that will have you shivering with anticipation. Be aware that it’s only the first part of the story and you’ll have to wait for part two, but if you don’t mind the cliffhange
My only complaint...
I. W A N T E D. M O R E!!!!

All my favorite things to read wrapped up in one marvelous novella. Armentrout rocked that balance, creating perfect symmetry, giving us just the right amount of fantasy, suspense, action, romance and even some humor catapulting the world of The Prince to life.

Rating: 4.5/5

The first word that comes to my mind is WOW...seriously i wasn't expecting to get that much into this novella so fast. Of course i absolutely love everything Jen write (pretty sure i would buy her grocery shopping list) and i adored the Wicked series so i knew going back to that world would be a winner for me.

I liked the glimpse of Brighton i got the the wicked series and seeing this world through her eyes was a breath of fresh air. She's not the ultimate badass full of confidence
What the hell was that ending?!? I thought this was supposed to be a novella, like an epilogue type ending to the Wicked triliogy! Not a beautifully written story which expanded the characters of both Brighton and The Prince Caden and end on a fricken cliffhanger!!! So uncool.

What the f, Jen? So uncool. I need The King, like, now.

I never know in how much of a reading funk I am until I pick up a JLA book and it knocks my socks right off.

It pains my heart that we have to wait a whole year for continuing Brighton and the Prince's story. I do not approve of this, Armentrout. I don't.

But I will obviously be waiting.

(what is it about these Dark Nights novellas she writes that end up being my favourite couples of a series? Man.)

4 3/4 "Sunshine" Stars!

This was so very good. I have to admit Brighton's actions were a bit stupid at times, but I still really liked her; and understood her reasoning. The Prince... Swoon... Loved him! If you are a fan of the Wicked Trillogy, this is a must read. Absolutely my favorite book in this world so far. Only problem is I have to wait until next summer for the next book! 😒 Happy reading! 😊

PS. This is a cliffhanger. It wasn't bad enough to make me want to throw my Kindle against the wall

What a great novella to go with this series I really liked that it wasn’t about Ivy and Ren.
I wanted more closure on The Prince though I don’t think I really got it if anything I have more questions. I hope there is another book because this left us with a perfect open-ended story.

Brighton wasn’t really a side character I thought much about but now that I have read this it really makes sense it was her. I just want more! Lol

The narration again I liked it, I think she does a great job with The

Εντάξει, δεν έχω λόγια.
Είναι γνωστό άλλωστε, πως η αγαπημένη μου συγγραφέας στα παρανορμαλ είναι η Armentrout. Χρόνια τώρα...
Τον πρίγκιπα τον ξεχώρισα από το 1ο κιόλας βιβλίο των wicked. Και στο 3ο είχα δηλώσει πως θα ήθελα βιβλίο γι αυτόν.
Φυσικά η αγαπημένη δεν με απογοήτευσε και η επιθυμία μου έγινε πραγματικότητα. Ένα βιβλίο που ξεπέρασε τις προσδοκίες και νομίζω πως αδικείται που είναι ενταγμένο μέσα σε μια συλλογή. Θα προτιμούσα να κυκλοφορήσει αυτόνομο. Τώρα δεν έχω τίποτα άλλο παρά να π

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

Going back into the Wicked world was just awesome. When I first heard about this novella being written, I didn't know who it would be about besides The Prince, but I couldn't be more happy to find Brighton as one of the two main characters.

Brighton has always been a character that intrigued me because she kept a lot of herself, but in this novella, you get to see a whole lot more of her and how far she's willing to go to get to what she wants. She's no
Ok but this novella was WAY better than the original trilogy and that's the tea.

But I didn't know it ended in a cliffhanger. Now I don't know what to do because I want my ship to sail.

Well I love JLA and everything she writes.
I haven't read a book of hers that made me change my mind.
This one is no exception.

However... My patience being basically non-existent, this is hard to read this, falling in love with this characters and ending the book on a cliffhanger and knowing that you have to wait until July 2019... JULY 2019...!!!! SERIOUSLY!


So. Brighton. I loved her. Brave and badass and kind. Adorable!

It was so good to be back into the Wicked world. As usual, Jen got my attention right from the start with this book and I was sucked into this story from page one. The story was intense and had some very nail-biting moments and some pretty wild action scenes, but I loved this slow-burning romance in the story and the gradual build of feelings. Definitely a page turner

I loved Brighton. She was the shy and passive girl in the previous books, but she did have an outstanding devel

This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.I was so happy to go back to the Wicked world and what better way to explore it than through the eyes of Brighton.  She was the quiet, somewhat reserved daughter of Merle.  And what transpires with her gave me a new perspective on quiet Brighton.

Seriously! I mean really! I mean come on! This, this is what you give us after waiting for Wicked!!! This, sizzling, sexually anticipating, delicious spin-off, that quite frankly, I loved more than Wicked -- and I really liked The Wicked Trilogy. 

I finished Prince last night and I immediately went to Amazon, then Goodreads to see if I could find out more. Please, please tell me that Armentrout is writing Brighton and The Prince's full story because I will be the first in line to read it. I am re

I’m shook ya’ll! That seriously cannot be it. That absolutely cannot be how Brighton and Caden’s story ends. I will not and do not accept this! I DESPERATELY need more!

I’m a HUGE Jennifer Armentrout fan. I love her, I’m obsessed with her words and have been for as long as I can remember! I started The Wicked Trilogy the very second that Wicked hit my kindle and I’ve been obsessed with this series since then. Wicked was where we first met Brighton and Caden and we were luck

I devoured this novella basically in one night. Staying up later than I should have with work the next day. I love the Wicked trilogy, and getting to have more characters' stories told was like Christmas and my birthday all wrapped up in one. The Prince was a character we hated in The Wicked Trilogy, so at the end of that one, when you knew more about him, it left an opening for more story with him. Brighton was a character that we saw around in the stories before, mainly with her mom who was a ...more

Jennifer L. Armentrout has done it again. I feel like I'm always saying this, but this woman just keeps on surprising me. I have to be honest and say that I wasn't super excited to read this. It wasn't because I didn't want to jump back into the world of Wicked. It was because I just wasn't all that interested in reading about The Prince or Brighton. But, JLA...she has a way of making me end up devouring stories that I d

La trilogía Wicked (Cazadora de Hadas) es una saga original, excitante y llena de misterio y aventura. Tras leer Brave, el último libro de la saga (y que os recuerdo que saldrá en Octubre en español con el título de Valiente), me quedé con un huequito en el corazón. La saga no tiene un final típico, aunque os aseguro que cierra bien la trilogía, pero aún así no es un final cerrado-cerrado, por lo que la autora aún tenía mucho que ofrecernos. Y así ha sido.

I’m a huge fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s paranormal series; I would happily get lost in her Lux world despite its danger, and now that I’ve been introduced to her wickedly delicious characters in The Prince, A Wicked Trilogy novella, I’m eager to immerse myself into the New Orleans’ setting and the otherworldly characters, especially the Summer and Winter Fae, who may or may not want to take control over the human world.

This novella was everything I could want for the Princes story and now I need MORE. I need more Brighton and more Caden and knowing I have to wait a whole year for that is killing me inside.

The Prince, Caden, of the fae summer court is more than a little affected by the events that took place in the Wicked Trilogy. While under compulsion by the evil fae queen he did terrible and unthinkable things, and he remembers every moment of it. It haunts him

I was so up for a fun little story set in Jens Wicked world. But I didn't realize just how far this book would suck me in. I liked Brighton well enough through the series. But she was always a little uptight and too serious for me. And then we get this book. And now I see her in such a completly new way. And I really like that. She's not quite on Ivy's level of bada** but Brighton has her own bran
4.5 Stars in my Sky!

I'm going to start with the end and ask how can it end like that?! The Prince is dramatic, angst-filled and infuriating, but in the best way!!!

Right, now back to the beginning, or the start of this novella, which is set after the end of Ivy's story in Brave.

I've yet to find a JLA book that I didn't like and I'm not starting with The Prince. It's chockablock with amazeballs! JLA really does give good or really bad fae depending on which side of the war you take!
