THE CRUEL PRINCE by Holly Black / Giveaway #TheCruelPrince #CruelPrince

Happy Friday! I am so thrilled to team up NOVL to host a giveaway for Holly Black's newest release, THE CRUEL PRINCE. This book has received rave reviews. We might have freaked out a bit that the Queen of Fae finally treated us to another fantastic, must read Holly Black Faerie book. No one writes a fae story like Holly does. We love her writing. 

One of the things we love about Holly's writing, is her ability to make sure we understand her villains, even if they're just plain evil. There's always a small part of us that understands why they are the way they are. That's not to say we excuse these character's actions, because some of them are just plain, well, evil. I imagine we can insert an evil Holly Black laugh over that comment.

Since we're talking about fae, one of my favorite villains, and one that I always felt was mis-understood, is Maleficent. As a kid being a fan of the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty, she scared me when she turned into a dragon. Now, I just think it's awesome. What's not cool about getting really peeved, and turning into a dragon... Aside from getting peeved and shape shifting, I always felt there was something about her story I wanted to know more about. I enjoyed the Maleficent movie, because I knew there was more to her story, and we finally got it. 

We want to know, who's your favorite villain? This can be from a book, movie, T.V. shows etc. Your comment also earns you an additional entry for our giveaway! Thank you to the NOVL, our giveaway is for an amazing CRUEL PRINCE prize pack, which you'll see pictured below. Before you enter to win, here's a little bit more about the book.

By #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue.

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 PrinceCardan, 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.


Holly Black is the bestselling author of contemporary fantasy novels, including Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale and the #1 New York Times bestselling Spiderwick series. She has been a finalist for the Mythopoeic Award and the Eisner Award, and the recipient of the Andre Norton Award. Holly lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Theo, in a house with a secret library.
