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…
Say it isn’t so! Did these series have to end? This is definitely one of those series that I wish that could last forever. Why, you might ask? Jude, of course. She is one of those smart, strong-willed, and independent heroines that you could never get enough of.
Time and time again, they try to underestimate her. It was her mortality that made her even better. From the very start, Jude is given tasks to test her abilities, and every time her character shined through!
I love how Holly Black continued to surprise me. Just when I thought someone was her enemy, they become one of her greatest allies. My only complaint is that it felt as it was a bit rushed, especially towards the end. Can you blame me feeling that way? I enjoyed the series so much I wish there was more.
