“𝐁𝐲 𝐲𝐨𝐮, 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐞.”
Do you hear me squealing? I, of course had to click this just to show the beautiful covers of TFOTA series. It’s just so gorgeous and I LOVED it so much I feel that I have no purpose in life anymore!
"𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐦,” 𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐮𝐭, 𝐚𝐟𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐝. “𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐟𝐞.”
Cardan Greenbriar. My sweet baby Cardan. He is the most entertaining character with so much more to him than the eye meets. He also has a tail! Now that I have concluded the series I wonder whatever will I do without him! My only comfort is that at least I have HTKOELTHS to read.
“𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮.” 𝐇𝐞 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐚𝐭 𝐦𝐞, 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐧 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐚 𝐬𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞; 𝐢𝐭’𝐬 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭. “𝐈 𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐞𝐥𝐬𝐞, 𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐈 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮.”
What surprised me the most with this series was that unlike other books, TFOTA had very little moments and scenes of Jurdan and that left me wanting more but it did not fail to make me fall absolutely in love them any less. The series consists of a beautiful plot with so many fantastic characters that will win your heart or make you want to borrow Jude’s sword to run through them!
"𝐈𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝, 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐈 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐦𝐲 𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐦𝐲, 𝐈 𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮.”
Jude is the most beautiful, savage and badass character I ever had the pleasure of reading and I thoroughly enjoyed each and every second of it! I love how epic all her ideas and schemes were and far greater was the pleasure of watching her fall slowly but surely in love. For all the scheming and clever tricks she’s oblivious when it comes to the matters of the heart.
My rating for this series is off the charts and I’m not sure if I could read a book in the next couple of days without my mind reeling back to this series and to Jurdan. I wonder if I might just resort to rereading this to pacify my heart. If you haven’t read this already, what are you doing? You are missing out! Go read it and join me in swooning over Cardan.

Jude and Cardan banter, a lot
When Jude is tired after her day at the palace listening to everyone’s grievances, Cardan hugs her and doesn’t leave her for an hour
When Cardan goes to bed but Jude doesn’t because she wants to work some more, Cardan stays awake and works, too. Then when Jude comes to bed she’s surprised and Cardan says, “I can’t let the love of my life stay awake and work alone.” and then Jurdan go to bed and they cuddle (Jude is the little spoon) and sleep
When they’re with the rest of the family for movie night in winter, Jurdan share a blanket and do the thumb twiddly thing. Jude lets Cardan win
When they’re having dinner together, they play footsies. Jude ends up taking it to a higher level, one thing leads to another and they end up in bed hehe
Whenever she’s sleepy but has work, Jude rests her head on Cardan’s shoulder. Cardan strokes her hair lovingly and kisses her forehead
When Cardan is sleepy but has work, he pouts at Jude. Kebause they’ve developed a non-verbal language, Jude knows what he wants. She hugs him around the waist and kisses him on the cheek, except Cardan turns his face and she ends up kissing him on the lips instead
Cardan gets better at swordplay. He disarms Jude one day and he’s so shocked that he drops the sword and whoops. Jude is astonished but then she puts him on swordpoint. Cardan turns to her with a blinding smile and her lips curve into a smile involuntarily in turn. Then she brings him closer and nuzzles her nose with his. And then kisses him :D
One day when Jude can’t figure out the solution to a problem, she’s frowning in the distance. When Cardan comes up to her to talk to her about something, he sees her pouting and can’t resist pinching her cheeks softly. Then she turns to him but instead of saying something, she burrows her face in his chest and slowly, her whole body relaxes. Cardan wraps his arms around her and they stay like that for a while
They take a trip to the beaches in the mortal world (Cardan’s tail is glamoured) and when Cardan sees Jude in a swimsuit he tries to not show her too much of a reaction. Then he sees a guy looking at Jude. He narrows his eyes at him, goes to stand right in front of Jude, says she’s looking beautiful, and kisses her on the nose. Jude whispers if you don’t stop with the PDA, I’ll break your arm in his ear. So then Cardan takes a careful step back, waits till her attention is elsewhere and then swoops her in his arms and takes running to the water. Right when he’s about to throw her in, he glances at her face- sees her eyes shining, mouth pulled into a wide grin and stops awe-struck. Jude kisses him, he says who’s showing affection in public now? and then Jude just kisses him more in response
When Jude is working and Cardan feels like doing nothing, he ambles into her workroom, sprawls over her lap and talks about anything and everything. Jude smiles and nods in time with what he’s saying and runs her fingers through his hair. Cardan strokes her ear and cheek and then Jude starts blushing furiously
When Jurdan have to watch over Oak one day and he can’t fall asleep, Cardan brings him to their room. He tells Oak a story while Jude is out getting snacks. When she returns, Oak and Cardan are both asleep. Oak is wrapped up in a smol blankie but Cardan isn’t, so Jude brings a unicorn blankie, wraps Cardan up like a burrito and kisses him on the forehead
When Jude is feeling lazy, she stays home all day and practices swordplay with the Ghost. When Cardan comes home at night, he sees that Jude fell asleep on their bed while she was working on her laptop. He clears the bed up and brings a fluffy blankie to wrap her up in retaliation for the time she did the same to him. When he finishes wrapping her up, he kisses her on the cheek and gets up, but Jude grasps his hand and says Stay so then they cuddle within the blankie and watch a romantic movie. When a sex scene comes on, Jude begins blushing and hides her head in the crook of Cardan’s neck. He chuckles and grips her tighter on the waist and tells her to stop being adorable. She frowns up at him so he kisses her nose and then she melts against him
I missed them
I’ll do more later, maybe
jude @ cardan:

#Jurdan by you, I am forever undone.

A Study of Jude and Cardan
Jude: So apparently, I’m in love with Cardan.
Jude: I didn’t realize this.
Jude: I am deeply offended that nobody told me.
Cardan: I mentioned it once or twice.
Jude: Absolutely nobody. Shocked and upset.
Jude: Be safe Cardan.
Cardan: When am I not safe?
Cardan: Don’t answer that.
Cardan: [Does something cute]
Jude [under her breath]: I think I’m in love with you.
Cardan: What was that?
Jude: I said I’m SELLING YOU TO THE ZOO.
The Roach: How do you feel about children?
Cardan: They’re okay I guess. I mean, if I saw one, I wouldn’t throw a rock at it.
The Roach: Why would you throw a rock at a child?
Cardan: I just said I wouldn’t.
Cardan: Jude, your clothes are terrible.
Jude: Well what do you want me to do about it?
Cardan: Take them off.
Cardan: People really don’t appreciate me for who I truly am.
Jude: And what’s that?
Cardan: Art. Perfection. A God. Light of your life. Those are just some terms that could be used to describe me.
