Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.


Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

♛Vanessa♛ ϟ Novel Nerd Faction (novelnerdfaction) | 1811 comments Vivi said to Jude, "You fit in better here [in Faerie] than I do but I bet it cost you something." I think this line sums up the entire book. =P

Laura (acquariusgb) (acquariusgb) | 442 comments Started this last night. The prologue was very intense.
Quick question: was chapter 1 really one phrase? I was a bit shocked about it! LOL

I'm hoping to get this one in the next few days Laura. Maybe you'll still be reading when I start. :D

It will probably take me a week to finish it. Started working again after the winter holidays so no more reading marathons in bed : (

I think it's a bit like the character has been built. I think she's in survival mode and a bit distant. A bit like Katniss from the Hunger Games.
That's why I don't agree with some things in the plot. It doesn't seem to fit her character or at least that's my view.

It's so good. And I am loving Jude so far. She isn't quite what I like in a heroine. But I think she'll get there. (:

When reading about where they are walking to and from (school, the palace, etc.) are you as confused as me?! I for awhile owuld flip back to the map in the front of the book and try to figure out where they were walking. But it was just so confusing. -.-

I wasn't really confused because it all seemed like it was supposed to be whimsical and strange. My brain just kind of went with it. XD
