あらすじ・解説

An irresistible return to the captivating world of Elfhame from best-selling Folk of the Air author Holly Black. 

Once upon a time, there was a boy with a wicked tongue.

Before Cardan was a cruel prince or a wicked king, he was a faerie child with a heart of stone. In this sumptuously illustrated tale, Holly Black reveals a deeper look into the dramatic life of Elfhame's enigmatic high king. This tale includes delicious details of life before The Cruel Prince, an adventure beyond The Queen of Nothing, and familiar but pivotal moments from The Folk of the Air trilogy, told wholly from Cardan's perspective.

This new instalment in the Folk of the Air series is a return to the heart-racing romance, danger, humour and drama that enchanted listeners everywhere.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A lovely tale

The story of Beloved King Cardan is lovely and sad as the character himself. Love to hear little more about Cardan’s adventures and childhood, also, see inside his mind and a bit more about Jude and Cardan relationship.

disappointed

iam obsessed with jude and cardan and the cruel prince trioligy the told stories are just sooo small soo small and some are dull that I really donot care about i wished Holly focused on more significant points in the triology jude and cardan moments barely exist ok the illustrations are beautiful but I expected waaaay more waaay more so the only thing that made these 2 hours and 48 minutes bearable is the narrator who deserves an Oscar for the whole performance through out the series so thank you caitlin u r the best of the best .......

Physical read & audio review

“Some might think of him as a strong draught, burning the back of one's throat, but invigorating all the same.
You might beg to differ.
So long as you’re begging, he doesn’t mind a bit.”

I had a stack of books I planned / hoped to read this month, and because I completely forgot about pre-ordering this book it was not on my list.

Did I ditch my entire tbr the moment it arrived? Yes, yes I did!

Holly has a way of captivating me completely. I zoned out and devoured this in one quick sitting.

I loved the flow and the direction the story went in. It was nice to get an insight into Cardan, not just as he is now but as he was growing up.

I didn’t think it was possible to fall even more in love with Cardan, but alas, it has happened.

I loved everything - and the illustrations added an extra touch of magic to this beautiful story.
I’m so glad I own a copy of this book, it will definitely be one I reread often.

“You didn’t hear the story I told,” he goes on. “A shame. It featured a handsome boy with a heart of stone and a natural aptitude for villainy. Everything you could like.”

Reread: April 1st

"A heart of stone can still be broken."

I decided to give the audio a try after a recommendation and I'm so glad I did. I absolutely love how it was read, it added a little something extra to something I was already familiar with, and I love that.

Holly and Kelly slay

Holly Black and Caitlin Kelly are both masters of story telling. Holly Black draws the reader back into the beautiful, wicked world of Elfhame with these stunning new tales that give new depth to our beloved King and Queen. And Caitlin Kelly! she could narrate a recipe book and turn it into an epic read that I would happily devour. Her voice breathes life into the words. 10/10

Such good stories - such little time

I love this book, really, I do. However, unfortunately, its not as long as I want it to be. I suggest that, if you want it, get it. I love it. Beautiful illustrations, and the narration, well, someone give Caitlin a prize! It's a delightful listenm and does give some nice input on Cardans past, and how he grew up the way he grew up to be. Yes, there are less Jude and Carden stories than some wanted, but I do think that its definatly still worth the listen, or read.

So its up to you, really.
