It’s ACOTAR all over again. Huge fan base, very slow novel with (in my opinion) not much character development but a fairly okay plot?
I think my favorite scene was the coronation. Hey Jude and Prince Cardigan kissing in that one part didn’t make any sense to me especially seeing as there was no build up to him even sort of liking her and (honestly) I thought she was gonna be with Locke. But then Locke turned out to be a poop and was secretly dating Jude’s IDENTICAL TWIN THE WHOLE TIME.
This book was a mess and although I’m glad I read it, I don’t think I’ll return to the land of Faerie.

Cardigan is....not kind.
Jude is a bit stubborn and I have a feeling it’s gonna get her in trouble.
