How The King Of Elfhame Learned To Hate Stories

How The King Of Elfhame Learned To Hate Stories by Holly Black

Set after the events of the third book, How The King Of Elfhame Learned To Hate Stories is another installment in the The Folk Of The Air trilogy.

Told in Cardan’s point of view, this story tells the tale of how the cruel prince got his moniker and how his life changed in unexpected ways, all told through various iterations of another story in the book.

The book starts as a troll named Aslog tells young Cardan a story about a boy with a heart of stone. This story is then revisited multiple times throughout the events of the novel, with a completely new ending and meaning, reflected from the various stages of Cardans’s own life.

Although focused mostly on the cruel prince’s dramatic past, this book acts as sort of an epilogue to the series.

If you’re a fan of the series, especially Cardan, then this is an absolute must-read. Not only do we get to glimpse into Cardan’s thoughts, we also get to read exclusive scenes that weren’t previously in the main series.

Each chapter features amazing official artwork that makes this book an immersive, and a great to collect read.
