How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories (The Folk of the Air, 3.5)

Rating: 4 out of 5

Before he was a cruel prince or a wicked king, he was a faerie child with a heart of stone. Holly Black reveals a deeper look into the dramatic life of Elfhame's enigmatic high king, Cardan. This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan's perspective. This new installment is a return to the heart-racing romance, danger, humor and drama that enchanted readers.

I was in love with getting Cardan's point of view on things in this book. It was nice to understand him a little more. I think I would have loved to have his POV some in the trilogy. I think this book is really necessary for understanding who Cardan is and why. I mean not to mention it is illustrated with beautiful pictures. This was just a fun, quick, light read to help wean myself off of the series and I can't wait to buy a physical copy so I can better enjoy the illustrations.
