I rushed to finish this series off, so excited was I to delve back into this world. The finishing installment of the story wraps everything up in a nice compact, shiny bow. The ending was just as rewarding as the beginning and the middle. I never have much to say about sequels unless they miss the mark entirely, but Black hits it out of the park with this concluding tale.
If you love the young adult genre with a magic bent, then I feel confident you will love Black.
You can find the story on Amazon in multiple formats.
Synopsis: The finale to the New York Times bestselling Folk of Air trilogy, that started with The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King, from award-winning author Holly Black.
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.
