Can't-Wait Wednesday: The Cruel Prince

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for and is hosted by Wishful Endings. It's inspired by Waiting on Wednesday by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today I'm highlighting an anthology about folklore and fairy tales!

Goodreads' summary:

Amber the Blonde Writer - Can't-Wait Wednesday - The Cruel PrinceJude 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.

Why I'm Waiting:

When I was in high school, I loved reading books about the faerie universe. The older I got, the less I read about mystical creatures, but faeries never seem to fade like vampires and werewolves, blowing up and then vanishing to blow up again. I'd like to get involved in the faerie universe again, and Holly Black's novels are full of them, and full of them well from what I've heard.
