#BookReview: The Queen of Nothing (The Folk of the Air #3) by @HollyBlack


Synopsis: Special edition: Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition features an alternate jacket and contains letters from Cardan.


After being pronounced Queen of Faerie and then abruptly exiled by the Wicked King Cardan, Jude finds herself unmoored, the queen of nothing. 


She spends her time with Vivi and Oak, watches her fair share of reality television, and does the odd job or two, including trying to convince a cannibalistic faerie from hunting her own in the mortal world.


When her twin sister Taryn shows up asking of a favor, Jude jumps at the chance to return to the Faerie world, even if it means facing Cardan, who she loves despite his betrayal.


When a dark curse is unveiled, Jude must become the first mortal Queen of Faerie and uncover how to break the curse, or risk upsetting the balance of the whole Faerie world.

Rating: ★★★★★
My Review:  This book started off with a bang and ended the same way.  Although the story does wrap up compeletely I could see places that the author could come back and add more to the story. Which I really REALLY hopes that she does.  This was one series that I will remember for a good long while.  


This last installment to the Folk of the Air series starts off a few months after Jude has been exiled to the mortal world.  She is doing odd jobs and really just sulking. The romance in this one has been kind of all over the place as you don't know who to trust etc. But that all gets cleared up by the end of this story.  

It was a wild ride as there were twists and turns and man this book killed me by the end.  I just don't know what to say about this story other than I loved it completely and I am just so sad now that its over.

*"A heady blend of courtly double-crossing, Faerie lore, and toxic attraction swirls together in the sequel to THE CRUEL PRINCE....

"Lush, dangerous, a dark jewel of a book. Black's world is intoxicating, imbued with a relentless sense of peril that kept me riveted through every chapter of Jude's journey. And Jude!

This delicious story will seduce you and leave you desperate for just one more page."―Leigh Bardugo, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom
