Tony’s Wife Book Club Discussion Questions

Read synopsis here.

Discussion Questions:

1. Why was Saverio Armandonada’s relationship with his dad Leone so strained after Saverio told his dad that he didn’t want to work in the Ford Rouge factory and start a career in singing? Was Leone’s response to Saverio typical of the Italian-American for that time? Can you understand Leone’s side of the argument? What repercussions did the argument have?

The Wicked King Book Review

The Wicked King: Book Review by Dinh.

4.5 stars out of 5 stars


You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself that strong.

Jude 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 biddable. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her, even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her life and the lives of everyone she loves, Just must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a faerie world.

From hardcover book, 322 pages, copyright 2019, and published by Little, Brown and Company.
