really liked it

Black's writing is as beautiful and engaging as ever. However, as basically an explanation of Cardan's backstory, I didn't find very much plot in this novella. You need to have read the rest of the series to get the full impact of this book.

Having read the other books, How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories gives some nice insight into Cardan's personality and fills in a few details that were pleasant, but not strictly necessary, to know. At only 173 pages with pictures to boot, it is an incredibly fast read, and well worth the diversion for any fan of the series.
