The Cruel Prince
by Holly Black
At the age of seven, her parents were murdered and Jude and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the High Court of Faerie. Now 17, Jude wants to belong there despite being human and despised by many of the immortal fey, especially the young, wicked son of the High King, Prince Cardan. In order to win a place at the Court she must face the consequences and defy Cardan. When civil war threatens Faerie, Jude must risk her own life, forming a dangerous alliance in an attempt to save her sisters and Faerie itself.
