[Book Review] The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black


He will be destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne.

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.

Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.

And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, comes the highly anticipated and jaw-dropping finale to The Folk of the Air trilogy.

Ok so where book 2 failed this one succeeded. I love how this story concluded!

To start with I wasn’t bored to tears reading this, the pace was much better, and story moved at a much nicer rate. I like all the little side stories that were going on in this book, I won’t mention them all because I don’t want to spoil for people who have yet to read it, but they really kept me invested in the story.

I feel this book is where Cardan probably had the most character growth, we also learn a lot more about why he is the way he is, which about damn time. I wish this had been made clear earlier in the series. I still think we should have a got a few chapters from his POV.

Jude is great in this book I love her attitude and how she handles all of the challenges that are present to her. I still not convinced that a lot of character development went on with her.

Overall this was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy.

My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
