5.0 out of 5 stars Good
By Autumn Melody on 24 December 2020
This was a good companion to The Folk of the Air trilogy. It's not all old stories. There was one story taking place in the present time with Jude, and all the stories were joined to make one big story.

The art is amazing 🤩 The illustrations were pretty. The Alice in Wonderland book from the Cruel Prince is shown in this 😉

For those wondering about the price of this compared to the original trilogy, think of it as a graphic novel. Illustrated books cost more than normal novels.

Essa livro é pra todos que amam a trigologia do povo do ar. As ilustrações são perfeitas, assim como os contos e todos os detalhes. Saiba, não é uma continuação por assim dizer, mas vale muito a pena!

This book is all about one character and that is Cardan, The High King of Elfhame. Although he wasn’t my favourite character in The Folk of the Air series, he is a main character. So, learning more about him was always something I was going to want to do. Especially when the series is that good! I actually really enjoyed getting a look into how Cardan came to be himself. Especially seeing him after the events following The Queen of Nothing. This character development almost builds more of the world for you, its almost like Cardan is the world. He forms such an imperative part in what makes Elfhame and so by being inside his mind you are also inside Elfhame and I love that.

The accompanying illustrations are beautiful and it was really nice to see the words depicted on the pages. Illustrator Rovina Ca did such an amazing job of capturing his likeness and personality in her work. Rovina’s art style was a perfect choice for this book, it really encapsulates the dark side of Cardan and his group bringing the stories to life.

Getting to see parts of the stories already written throughout The Folk of the Air from Cardan’s perspective adds so much more depth to the overarching plot lines. The main series is predominantly about Jude so I think a book from Cardan’s perspective was definitely necessary.

Although not pivotal to the main plot and story it gives it an edge that it didn’t have before reading this. Seeing all the background details to events that took place gives the reader such a better understanding almost like you’re in the mind of the character and nothing beats that! Getting to the end of this book feels like completing a journey with Cardan and I think it is a journey all fans of The Cruel Prince should embark on.

Se você já ama a trilogia do Povo do Ar (Folk of the Air), vai amar esse livro também! É uma história extra, fofa e interessante, que completa a trilogia. Não tem nada de super surpreendente, é verdade, mas eu gostei bastante de ver o Cardan quando era criança, de ver o lado dele em algumas cenas dos outros livros. Talvez o único problema seja que eu tive que parar e reler as cenas para me lembrar exatamente do que estava acontecendo e de como terminaram.

As ilustrações são simplesmente excelentes! Combinaram muito bem com a história, com o estilo da trilogia e com o próprio Cardan! Acho que foi uma das melhores compras que já fiz e agora estou louca para reler a série toda e finalizar com ele outra vez!
