Audio Review: The Wicked King by Holly Black

I can’t y’all! I can’t even….The Wicked King by is the brutal sequel to The Cruel Prince. Every word lives up to its name. The twists and turns, the hate-love-hate relationship, and the machinations of the Fae court left me gutted. I need a bottle of wine or two and several nights to recoup. I […]
