it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, library-book, ya

A fierce young girl's family is killed and she's squirreled away to a land not her own. Jude Duarte must learn to live among faeries, sprites and other non-mortals, and defend herself at every turn. Sometimes fighting for her life.

This book was gripping from the first page. It was part Game of Thrones, Hamlet, and Grimm. Let's just say...blood was shed.

I loved Jude. Loved her.

When does book 2 come out? I need to read more Holly Black while I wait.
