    Expect the unexpected

    When I first heard of The Cruel Prince, it sounded like exactly what I'd been looking for - a seemingly powerless yet strong-willed protagonist, a clever and manipulative love interest, and a backdrop of court intrigue and fairy mythos. It turned out to be so much more than I expected. Every time I thought I understood where the plot was going, Holly Black would take an abrupt U-turn. The twists were unexpected, because they were always the literal opposite of what had been spelled out. To be honest, I didn't like the writing. The characters were real, the plot was clever, but there was something that stopped me from immersing myself fully. Yet still I powered on through. Maybe it was hope that kept me going; a hope for just a little more from Cardan and Jude than I got. Regardless, while I enjoyed the experience, it left my thirst not quite quenched, and my expectations not quite met.
