A mad king.
"[...] a fast-paced thrill ride through an intriguing world. Evocative prose brings the story to life, with characters who are intriguing, and whose relationships enrich the plot. The story stands on its own, but the ending opens up a world of possibilities. Well-written, focused, entertaining. I especially appreciate the author's elegant and evocative writing style."

"The Hidden King is rich with powerful relationships, complicated characters, and gut-wrenching moments. Fans of Holly Black, Leigh Bardugo and Sarah J. Maas will love this upper Young Adult fantasy set in a divided world...the wealthy and the starving, the human and the fae, the corrupted and the worthy. A phenomenal, page-turning tale!"
