~REVIEW🖋~
The Quick and Dirty: Absolutely sublime. An epic finale to a dark and compelling series. If you like YA Fantasy, this is a MUST READ. 

Jude is in exile, but when her estranged twin comes asking for help, she finds herself disguised and back in Faerie, not only in Madoc’s camp but coming across someone we all thought long gone. Jude manages to get a glimpse of Madoc’s plans to take Cardan’s crown and despite her desire to hate Cardan, she heads off to help him anyway. Epic transformations, court drama and battles ensue. And in the end, the close of the book was wholly satisfying to both those who came for the action and court intrigue as those who wanted to follow along with Jude and Cardan’s romance.

Holly Black’s way with words was what made the magic of Faerie and its characters come alive. The story grips you and keeps you in its clutches long after you’ve turned the last page.

If you can, get your hands on the B&N edition for exclusive content (letters from Cardan to Jude that will make all the romance readers out there swoon 😍!)

~BLURB~
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.
He will be the 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…
