Originally created by Jill at Breaking The Spine, Waiting on Wednesday was adapted to Can’t Wait Wednesday by Tressa at Wishful Endings. It is a weekly meme that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating!
This week’s book is another January 8 release, and it’s also probably on everyone’s wishlist right now! I read the first book in this series a few months ago, and right away I wished I had the next one! So without any further ado, this week’s Can’t Wait Wednesday book is…The Wicked King by Holly Black
Series: The Folk of the Air #2
Published on January 8, 2019 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that View Spoiler »Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother « Hide Spoilersafe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
