GOODREADS BEST FANTASY YA 2020. The intoxicating and bloodthirsty finale to the New York Times bestselling The Cruel Prince, nominated for the CARNEGIE MEDAL, and New York Times bestseller The Wicked King, Best YA Fantasy in the Goodreads Choice Awards 2019.
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, watching reality television, and doing odd jobs, including squaring up to a cannibalistic faerie.
When her twin sister Taryn shows up asking a favour, 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 break the curse, or risk upsetting the balance of the whole Faerie world.
My favourite book in this series.
Could not put it down
Holly Black has created a captivating world that I’m not yet ready to leave. This was the first book in a very very long time that I have stayed up all night to finish.
Black has managed to make me fall in love with very morally ambiguous characters and I am here for it!
Absolutely in love
It took me two days to finish this series, completely sucked up in the world, the imagery, the drama, this whole trilogy was so beautifully written, I cried, smiled so hard my cheeks hurt and yelled. I also happen to learn she wrote the spider wick chronicles which as a younger teen I read religiously and still have my original set. Thank you Holly Black.
