Publisher's Summary

A powerful curse forces the exiled Queen of Faerie to choose between ambition and humanity in this highly anticipated and jaw-dropping finale to the Folk of the Air trilogy from a number one New York Times best-selling author.

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 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....

Great

Absolutely loved it. It just kept me hooked from the first few chapters. Normally, I don't like stories that contain modern world inclusions, but they were well done here.

Couldn’t put it down

It took me a while to get into the first book... I enjoyed it and as the story went on, I become more and more engrossed. With this book... I couldn’t put it down! It had me engaged every step of the way and I loved the twists and turns the author took me on. Really enjoyed the character development too.

Encore Ending

I do not find a lot of series that can keep me on the edge of my seat with a well concluded ending. Well done, Ms. Black. Well done.

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.

The end of Trilogy?

To start with my feelings on the ending, I felt it was tied up very nicely. A sweet happy ending, but still leaves a few open endings. I would have enjoyed one last scene between Jude and Cardan, but maybe we will get another book? My biggest issue with this book is how obtuse Jude is in the beginning. I came to believe I was mistaken about the loop hole I saw in Cardan proclamation because she was so adamant about her exile. In reality, she was really that busy licking her self inflicted wounds to see it, which felt very unlike her to me. I do also wish overall there had been a few more scenes with Jude and Cardan alone, but I suppose that was the point of the story.

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.

It feels off

This is not a good final book to end what was an amazing trilogy I was really disappointed. None of the characters felt real or like they were in previous books. It was way too short and it felt like the author skipped over important moments. I was really disappointed cause I loved the first and second book so much.

Love it!

It was getting close to the end and I didn't see how it would end well within 3 chapters. I was worried it'd be rushed, but it was perfect. There were a couple of climaxes in the last 30% or so. Just when you think everything's going to be great, something happens and my heart was breaking. Just when I thought there was hope, my heart broke again. But it all ended well and my heart swelled with happiness.

Didn't have the closure of a finale

I really loved this series, and I really expected another book to follow! I looked it up and it said this was the last one, which I found rather surprising as it has a lot of loose ends and I don't really feel satisfied. I mean, I usually am not when a series I love ends, but this was different. Also the reader didn't do as great of a job with this book as she did the others. Like a lot of scenes were read in the wrong tone/voice and it was super obvious. She read most of the scenes as tense/fast paced even when they were not and it came across as a little 1 note. Not her best, but I still love the voices she makes.

Redeemed!

So I was really bummed after book 2, but this one lifted my spirit. All 3 books were well written and performed. I do wish the series would be longer, but I throughly enjoyed them even if it didn’t always work out like I had hoped.
