Join the Boskone 57 Book Club, featuring The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

One of Boskone’s annually featured sessions is the Boskone Book Club. This year, we will be gathering on Sunday, February 16, 2020.

Join us for a lively conversation that brings con-goers together to discuss the YA science fiction novel The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (our Young Adult Fiction Guest).

Boskone’s own Bob Kuhn will lead the discussion; Holly Black will join the group halfway through for a Q&A session with fans. Since this is the first book in a series, no spoilers will be given beyond the first book.

To participate, please read the book and come ready with your thoughts and questions for a lively discussion. We look forward to seeing you there!

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

   Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

   To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

   In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
