The second book in the Folk of the Air series by Holly Black, The Wicked King is shorter than I would have thought it would be, but the words that lay within doesn't have to be long enough for me to be completely enthralled in the world again. After reading the first book, I wouldn't of thought that it could've gotten better, but the second book in this series reaches limits that I didn't think could be reached. It is darker and the character’s actions are more dangerous than ever. And with the last book being titled what it is, by the end of the book, I now understand the name. If you were weary after finishing the first book, The Wicked King will reinstate your hope for the series and Holly Black’s writing. 5/5 Stars. @SeraphinaWilliams of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
