The Queen of Nothing
The Queen of Nothing | Holly Black
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.

Finished the last book of this series. I enjoyed it more than I expected. It has a nice ending. My only with all three parts were the beginning which were really slow. The story only pick up pace only after a quarter of the book.

All in All a enjoyable book, a good holiday read.

I adored this series and the end was okay. Jude was a great female protagonist and I really enjoyed the beginning of this book. Cardan is always so funny but i wish there would have been more of his wittyness in this book. I hope we hear of a spin off soon.

I really loved this series and this book. I thought the characters were well developed. But I agree with others that the ending did not seem quite right. I think it is because one of the super well developed characters acted completely opposite of his character.

A quick read and real page-turner, this series is perfect for anyone seeking to end a reading slump, and although difficult to manage, the trilogy‘s conclusion was satisfying enough.

The Queen of Nothing could have used a little more development of some of the plot lines, as every intriguing plot concluded far too quickly and simplistically, leaving me less satisfied than I was with the other books, but it‘s an enjoyable read nonetheless. 🖤

“Come, let us charm and confound our subjects.” - Cardan

This pretty much sums up this book. This and, “By you, I am forever undone.” From The Cruel Prince to the the last page, delicious. Make sure you read the letters at the very end from Cardan to Jude, they are like a cherry on top.

I am so utterly disappointed in this book. I was so hyped for it and it was just bad. No crazy twists, no build up, no suspense, no actual fights or wars just all talk. And what happened at the end of book 2 was POINTLESS !! Lady Asha was POINTLESS!! It just focused on Jude and Cardan and their love. It was so overly SAFE that it ruined the trilogy for me.

So I enjoyed the book but was very disappointed with how short it was and how she could have done much more with the book. To me it is unfinished and would want more to the story then what was given.

Wonderful ending to a wonderful series. Loved the growth of all character, especially Jude. Such great maturation between the 1st & 3rd books. There were parts when I laughed out loud, parts when I gasped, parts when I cried, and even some warm fuzzies. Going to miss these characters.

Which character would you bring to Thanksgiving dinner? Or, which fictional family‘s Thanksgiving would you want to crash?!

I‘d love to crash Thanksgiving in Faerie with Jude & Cardan & Taryn & Vivi & the Court of Shadows (Even though I‘d be terrified like 95% of the time & it‘d probably end in a bloodbath 🤷🏻‍♀️)

How about you?! Leave your answer & tag a friend!

I ship Cardan and Jude super hard. But, I feel like this book was rushed in their time together and just in general. Something was missing and I feel like the book could have been developed a bit better and longer. There were no twists that made me gasp, they just made me guess in advance. #thecruelprince #thewickedking #cardan #jude #cardanxjude #hollyblack #thequeenofnothing #bibliophile #bookstagram #litsy #littens #read

All 3 owlcrate special edition copies of the Folk of the Air series (on the left) and their beautiful naked covers... and for comparison, the B&N special editions for the 2nd & 3rd (I don‘t have the first) and their beautiful naked covers.

Happy to blow anything up for you... let me know!

Now I just need to find the time to *read* these!!

hermyknee Oooh they look great together. I posted all three of my books together - the first two are the OwlCrate editions and the third is the B&N special edition, and they look like they all belong together! I‘m pretty happy about it since I couldn‘t afford the OwlCrate edition this time around. But the naked covers are gorgeous! Both sets! So pretty! 3w

I did not want this story to end , but all good things must come to an end. I‘m truly going to miss the characters ( not Taryn).. I guess I imagined that the story would continue over the expanse of five or six books. Obviously, that was wishful thinking. Still, I am satisfied with the ending. #hollyblack #thequeenofnothing

I regret going back to this series, because it blindsindedly ruined me. I didn‘t expect to get sucked into it, especially after the first book left me with only a meh feeling, but that was because I hadn‘t known the characters well enough yet. But now I do, and I need more! Why was it over and why was it so short? The one thing I have to say is that it was very rushed, but that didn‘t stop me from enjoying it till the very last word. #bookhangover

Man! You put Cardan and Jude in a room and you get the flashback heat of a blazing fire. Add in the faerie realm as imagined by Holly Black and a fitting ending to this trilogy and most readers will not only be supremely happy but will also be left wanting just a little bit more. Well done!

The conclusion of this amazing series ☺️ I‘m still shocked by how the author manages to blend faerieland +the modern world so seamlessly. Lots of shocking twists and turns in this one!😃Yet I still feel like I got what I was hoping for in the character scenarios etc. So many intriguing characters and we got to see layers of them. A few minor gripes and not as flawless as “the wicked king” but definitely brilliant and worth the wait ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 1/2

HOTPock3tt @EchoLogical it WAS rather short 😂but that worked out for me because I was trying to finish it before I had to go back to work lol. But I will say this: Cardan was only a snake for like 5 mins 🤣 he certainly didn‘t get to ‘terrorize the land‘ or anything lmao! So in a way I do feel like the end was resolved a bit too quickly 🤔 I loved him and jude‘s marriage though! 😍 and Vivi was a BADASS!! 😎🙌🏽 (edited) 3w

This was a pleasant surprise.
TWK felt rushed, and this being even shorter didn‘t seem promising 😬
Instead this ended up being my favorite of the three.

It stretches redemption a bit, but it also answers questions, presents new challenges, shows different perspectives, adds dimension to familiar characters, and it ends the tale in a very satisfying way.

Well, I read the whole thing in a day, so I guess that tells you I enjoyed it! A really fun and wild end to this trilogy, and for me a stronger book than the second. Definitely a few 🤯 moments, and some great twists. I do still have a bit of a hard time with Jude and Cardan‘s relationship and wish this had been a little longer to give that process more depth, but even so, it was still INTERESTING. I‘ll just add—🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍 holy crap, LOL. 4/5 ⭐️
