If you’ve been following my blog for at least the past month than you know I speed read through The Lunar Chronicles and instantly fell in love.
I could go on and on about so many characters but for today I’ll focus on Prince Kai.
Not only is he a POC, which I love, but he’s kind and a great leader. He cares about his people and is willing to do whatever it takes to protect them, even if that means sacrificing his own happiness.
Plus, I just love how open and honest he is with Cinder. He’s totally genuine with her and it’s cute to see him outside of the palace and acting like a real teen. He gets nervous around her and for a moment you forget he’s even a prince.
Prince Kai is really just the best. He’s cute and funny and just an overall great dude. Check him out in The Lunar Chronicles if you haven’t already.
[Kai] lifted his gaze. ‘Just to be clear, you’re not using your mind powers on me right now, are you?’
She blinked. ‘Of course not.’
Then he slid his arms around her waist and kissed her.”
