Folk of the Air Readathon Announcement

When the Cruel Prince first published in 2018, audiences became enchanted with Holly Blacks' mesmerising world of Faerie. Jude Duarte and Cardan Greenbriar became household names in the Young Adult genre and the morally ambiguous characters provided a fresh outlook on what heroes of a story can be. To celebrate the release of the next book in the series, How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate stories (an illustrated story from Cardan's point of view), The Hot Key Books ambassadors have organised a read-along of the original trilogy. It is open to fans who wish to refresh their memory or new readers who are yet to discover Elfhame and you can expect giveaways of signed books, boxsets and even an array of games! 

One terrible morning, Jude and her sisters see their parents murdered in front of them. The terrifying assassin abducts all three girls to the world of Faerie, where Jude is installed in the royal court but mocked and tormented by the Faerie royalty for being mortal. As Jude grows older, she realises that she will need to take part in the dangerous deceptions of the fey to ever truly belong. But the stairway to power is fraught with shadows and betrayal. And looming over all is the infuriating, arrogant and charismatic Prince Cardan.
