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 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.

Age rating (in my opinion): 11/12+ (a kiss or two, and brief mentions of sex (i think))
I completely devoured this series. I loved the chemistry and banter between Cardan and Jude, and the whole world Black has created. I’ve heard mixed thoughts from my friends though, so I’m not sure it’s for everyone. I still highly recommend it nonetheless.

This is honestly one of the best series I've ever read in my life. I love it so much. Jude is probably my favorite protagonist ever written. She's so strong and confident I love her!
