Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling 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....

Amazing, would read again and again...

I loved this series and I’m sad that it is over. I hope we see a spin-off series in the future. Caitlin Kelly does a remarkable job bringing this story to life. ❤️

Another amazing story!

I absolutely adored this book! Could not stop listening to it! So well-written and engaging. An amazing follow-up to The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King.
And can we talk about Caitlin Kelly for a minute? She’s so talented!!! All those voices, the consistency, the variation, slipping in and out so easily. Truly incredible. She brings the stories to a whole other level with her voice.
I’m so sad it’s over but what an amazing ride.

Perfect Ending

This book was a perfect end to a great fantasy series packed full of action, intrigue, and vivid descriptions without being excessively long (wheel of time I'm talking about you).

Series Finishes strong

I am going to keep this spoiler free
The third book finishes strong with good Payout.

Honestly stuck with it because it was nice to see a female teenage protagonist, Jude, have really common for her age feelings of angst. The books got better and better as Jude often found validation to confirm things she has felt because of teenage angst. While she is still smart and capable it takes a whole cast to get her to book 3.

This book steps away from the political intrigue and becomes more a book on Strategy. Holly Black is quite the word nerd to have written the riddles and prophecies throughout this series.

That said Jude grows the most in this book but seems far from done growing (she is still only a teenager after all)... but we leave her in a promising place. I hope to see her and some other characters in the background since there are still a lot of stories left to tell in Fairy.

literally sobbing

The perfect end to the perfect trilogy! I’m sobbing with how perfect it all came together. And all I gotta say is Jude is the ultimate bad-a.

Amazing Ending to this Trilogy

I'm so sad this trilogy is over. The book was amazing. It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. So many thing happened. I loved the whole thing! I will miss the characters. The narrator was perfect! I would listen to something else done by this narrator. I love Holly Black. She did not disappoint!

I wanted to love it...

The narration was great but the story lacked it's usual luster from the previous books. I wanted to love this ending but it really did fall flat for me.

Great Trilogy

The Cruel Prince, in my opinion, starts out slow. However once invested in the characters you crave to know what happens next. The trilogy keeps you on the edge of your seat, and the Queen of Nothing has you holding your breath.

HOLY CRAP I loved this series!

After just stumbling on this series completely by chance and devouring all three audiobooks in as many days, I cannot reccomend it enough. Intricate and ornate without being treacly, with unique and complicated characters, a plot which both weaves elegantly through all three books but also leaves each volume satisfying in its own right, and most of all a masterfully crafted romance, I practically want to go back and listen to it all again. Also, an excellent performance of the voice actor to top it off!

I'm so sad that this is the end, my heart was destroyed, and rebuild, and then torn apart again, thank you for the ride.
