Enter a world of faerie magic and epic adventure in this spellbinding sequel to Estranged—a rich fantasy graphic novel perfect for fans of Amulet.

After years of pretending to be human, the changeling Edmund Carter has assumed his rightful role as Cinder, king of the World Below. But not everyone at the royal palace is happy about his return.

Meanwhile, Ed is adjusting to human life in the World Above. His birth family treats him with a kindness he never knew growing up in the Fay court, but Ed misses the sense of purpose he had as a knight.

When a mysterious new threat emerges in the World Below, Cinder must call on Ed and their older sister, Alexis, for help. But nothing can prepare them for the family secret that awaits at the end of their perilous quest.

With over two hundred pages of gorgeous watercolor paintings, The Changeling King invites readers on an epic journey through a magical world—one they will not soon forget.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
Beautiful follow-up!!! Ed, Cinder and Alexis are all back together and struggling with their differences. High Fey, Goblins, Wild Hunt, name it. Many of my favorites are back and of course some not so favorite characters.

I love Cinder! He's ruling over the World Below and doing a fine job at it. He's struggling with his kind and getting used to them, but he's pushing through the way he knows how to. Ed is also struggling with living in the human world. Both of them must learn to coexist in their correct worlds and they learn a lot along the way.

Alexis is such an awesome big sister and her affinity for magic rocks! She cracks me up. Mr. and Mrs. Carter are great as parents. They are trying to get used to the truth concerning their sons and they are handling it pretty well.

Whick cracked me up the whole time! He and Alexis are pure comical relief for me.

Smite and the Fairy Queen are A N N O Y I N G! They both got what they deserved in the end.

Overall, I was pleased with this and definitely annotated my favorite parts as I read. Definitely enjoying this graphic novel. I hope there's a book three because the way book two ended...there NEEDS to be a book three.
