I require book two immediately. Holly is the Faerie Queen. The Wicked King picks up five months after the events of the last book. Holly Black delivers dark, twisty fairy tales featuring morally ambiguous characters I can't help but like. ―Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of The Red Queen series. Jude is more grown up, but at the same time, can be too naive and trusting. Starting with THE CRUEL PRINCE, these new tales of Faerie are just as dark and creepy, and the stakes are higher than ever as mortal girl Jude Duarte continues to walk the fine line of being a human in a place of deceit and frightening wonder.

Sarah Briggs is a supporting main character in Titanfall and Titanfall 2. Rising as a covert operative to become a commander of the Special Recon Squadron (SRS) and its sub-section, the Marauder Corps (M-COR). Rising as a covert operative to become a commander of the Special Recon Squadron (SRS) and its sub-section, the Marauder Corps (M-COR), she is one of the central figureheads of the Frontier Militia.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong. After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. 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.

I created this special version of the Wicked Queen out of wood, wire, clay, and paint- she stands at 4 1/2 inches tall, (1. cm). She has hand sculpted and painted face, ragged robes and gown with patch pieced, real fiber hair, and for a final detail, a small basket of poisoned apples. Debbie Ritter- artist @ uneekdolldesigns.

"First Bite: The Wicked Queen's Tale" is a bit like "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead", making minor character major and major characters minor. There's an interesting take on the origin of the wicked queen, bringing an ancient story into the mix. Some familiar characters are here, such as the Huntsman, and there are new characters, too, such as the witch's assistant Fortulla.

This tale was nicely done--in fact, this is too good a story to suffer from mistakes like: "Swiftly, silently, for their was no time to lose." Arrrrrgh! Ok, ok, I'm a grammar/spelling Nazi and the misuse of their-there-they're makes me crazy. As does excessive use. Of incomplete sentences. For emphasis. Clean this stuff up and this story would be 5 stars.

I read Charming, also by this author/team, and loved it! I bought this (First Bite) book because the second in the series that follows Charming was not out yet. Mistake. I really tried to read this book. I had to stop reading it at lunchtime, it was so grotesque and unnecessarily violent, that I could not read it while I ate. It seemed to be nothing more than one bloody scene after another,and,as far as I could tell,the repetitious killings did nothing to advance the story. after a few,the reader gets it- they kill lots of people and drink their blood. But that's all it seemed to be. At about 30 percent of the way through,it appeared that a story was starting to advance, but then, back to more satanic style ritual and blood. This story was NOT for me. It makes me very sad, I had thought I had a new favorite author...but now I am not sure I will try any more of these books. Dark is one thing, but this was just over the top. I stopped 40 percent of the way through. I really don't care about the rest, and it is a shame, because I think this is a very talented pair of writers.

As other reviewers have said, this book contains some pretty gruesome stuff. I liked the story, but I've rated it down because I've recognize a lot of the witchcraft linkages in here from older, darker, earlier fairy-tales as well as tales from religious mythologies and some psychology stuff. I was able to predict some parts of the plot (particularly who was who). HOWEVER, even though I was able to predict some things, I still had an enjoyable read.

This story reminds me of Neil Gaiman's retelling of the snow-white tale, not the plot (which is very different, Gaiman follows the original story plot more closely, but from a different perspective), but the fact that they draw on the same, older fairy-tale sources that go back to the bloodier aspects of the snow-white tale that get lost in today's sanitized versions.

I read this after I fell in love with Laura Brigg's writing style after reading Charming and Cindermaid, an exquisite retelling of Cinderella. The First Bite is a unique retelling of Snow White. I'm currently reading Snow White's Knight and The Magic Mirror. At this point, I'm guessing these two Snow White books are the same as the two Cinderella books, they both must be read to get the full impact of the story.

I loved how the authors took a fresh look at this old story while staying true to its original roots. The tale is told through the view point of a young servant and her life as it intersects with the lives of the Evil Queen and Snow White. Warning: the writing is very graphic at times and the scenes of ritualistic sacrifices are particularly gruesome. The faint of heart should beware. While Good disappears in the land as Evil increases in power, it eventually becomes apparent that Evil cannot sustain itself and it ultimately crumbles. It's a tale as old as time.

This book just drew me in and was hard to put down. The author creates such a creepy, haunting atmosphere with every glimpse of the wicked queens long life. It made me remember why she was so scary to me as a child when I first encountered the story of snow white. Every aspect of the traditional story is here - the mirror, the apple, and the woodsman - but all of these things are given deeper significance. Out of all of the other re-imaginings of the story of snow white that seem to be popping up all over in recent years, this is by far my favorite.

I love to read and I love the story of Snow White. This book was well written in the sense of beautiful and colorful language, but it lacked the magic that is supposed to capture the reader. I found that the storyline was difficult to follow and found myself rereading chapters. The characters lacked charisma, although I did think there was an attempt to give the characters a certain sense of appeal. As I read I kept forgetting who this or that character was and which character I was reading about at the moment. I honestly trudged through this book.
This book has some gruesome, truly evil parts - which reminded me of a car accident where you don't want to see it, but you look anyway - the story is like that where there are characters that are truly evil and do great evil, so much that you don't want to read further, but you do anyway hoping that good will finally overcome and then it does!
