The Queen of Nothing
The Queen of Nothing | Holly Black
236 posts | 306 read | 5 reading | 96 to read
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.

The Royal Astrologer, Baphen, squinted at the star chart and tried not to flinch when it seemed sure the youngest prince of Elfhame was about to be dropped on his royal head.

OMG, I just love this book. I usually annotate my favourite scenes and quotes but in this book, I liked every scene that I almost filled it with highlights. Totally recommend it.

The folk of the air series is not my usual type of go-to book so I was a bit skeptical in the beginning.
This book was, just like the second one, very exciting.
Things were happening non-stop which doesn‘t allow the story to get boring, that was pretty cool.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Jude Duarte.

“And you.” He looks at me, his lips curving in something that‘s not quite a smile; it‘s more and less than that. “I knew little else, but I always knew you.”
And when he kisses me, I feel as though I can finally breathe again.”

quote
roronoazoro

“I have asked you to lie to me in the past, in this very room, but I would beg you not to lie now.”

quote
roronoazoro

“It‘s you I love,” he says. “I spent much of my life guarding my heart. I guarded it so well that I could behave as though I didn‘t have one at all. Even now, it is a shabby, worm-eaten, and scabrous thing. But it is yours.” He walks to the door to the royal chambers, as though to end the conversation. “You probably guessed as much,” he says. “But just in case you didn‘t.”

quote
roronoazoro

“Mock me all you like. Whatever I imagined then, now it is I who would beg and grovel for a kind word from your lips.” His eyes are black with desire. “By you, I am forever undone.”

I read this beginning to end on a five hour car ride, and I had so many feelings that are too hard to express. Cardans character development had me literally crying, going from almost killing her to expressing his love for her in the ways every girl dreams of. I will truly miss this series.

Spent 3 days with my sister in law Jenna in the small town of Seldovia. Our friend Joe flew us in and we water taxied out. I read the entirety of Queen of Nothing and enjoyed the sun, waves, and a few Blueberry Mojitos (IYNYK) . I‘ll give more thoughts on the book soon. Worth the wait for the ending? Probs not but I still enjoyed it. #adventuring #ya #camping

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Holy macaroni was this book good. I was worried that the last book of the series wouldn‘t live up to my expectations that the previous two books delivered, but man did this conclusion do that and more. My only complaint is that I wish Cardan‘s letters to Jude had been included and not only in special editions of the book. Overall, I enjoyed this series very much and it was better than I expected!

Stayed up half the night reading this and came down with a cold the next day 🤧🤧Was it worth it? Hmm. I definitely didn‘t want to stop reading, but Jude continues to be a bit clueless. She‘s badass with a sword though and Cardan has some nice development. A fun series. If you‘re looking for a Feyre/Rhys type of romance, you will be disappointed. The romance is very much a side plot. I still feel there could be more world building. But a pick!

I mean, after how the second book ended I had to find out what happens next even if it was 4 in the morning. Somehow over the last day I've absorbed this book. Some things were a little too neat at the end (and I have to believe Jude has been willfully blind about obvious things throughout) but overall I'm very happy to have lost the past couple days to this trilogy.

persephone1408 I also lost time with this series & I plan on losing more time rereading it very soon.😉 11mo

I swear, this is such a good book! It‘s the perfect end to the trilogy. This book started off a bit fast and then it just got intense until the last 20 pages. I would recommend this series to anyone, just read it in order! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished this series, the 3rd and last book, The Queen of Nothing in The Cruel Prince series. It went by so fast. If your looking for a YA fantasy this is a good one. I give it four out of 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

This series had its faults, but it's so worth the journey for this book. If you can get past the first book of backstories and world building, the next 2 books just get better and better. I really loved this one and the main character didn't seem annoying, the author did a great job with the character development. Now I'm sad the series is over. I really did love this ❤ 5/5

Maya.McClan I just finished this as well! Loved it ❤️ 1y

Jude has returned to the mortal realm after a collection of drama and threats of war that work against her. However, she finds herself stuck between a rock and a hard place when she has to decide whether or not she has a place in the Faerie world. If you like books that include enemies to lovers, you will like this book. The point of view is in first person, the author's narration is told from Jude's POV with the usage of “I“ “Me“ or “My“ pronouns

MissYaremcio Nicely done Victoria! Is this the second or third in the series?! I have taken the first out from the library!! 6/6 1y

4.5/5⭐️ couldn‘t put this down!! I absolutely loved the character development of Cardan in this book, he becomes cheeky and likeable, Jude continues to be my #1 gal, I‘m so glad she got everything she wanted ❤️ I highly recommend this series if you‘re into fae, politics, magic and stabbing people 🗡✨

I really wish this had a little more to it. But for what it was, it was still a great ending. I loved Carden even more in this book. He‘s still a little shit, but his character development makes me love him entirely for it. Jude‘s character takes a while but her character matures just as much as Carden‘s does. Definitely a great ending.

OH MY GOSH. This series. This might be my new favorite series, or at least one of them. It destroyed me, but in a good way.

This final book was action-packed from the get-go and took so many surprising twists. . I loved seeing the character development over the series. I think a huge emphasis on this last book was on family and what it means to be part of one.

3⭐
Holly Black has created a very satisfying ending to this #trilogy. #TheFolkOfTheAir series is nothing like the Fae that you read in #TOG or #ACOTAR, they are dark and majestic.
I couldn't put this down, it captured my attention from the first page. However, I do feel like it was rushed, some chapters could've had more to them. And the riddles answer was very obvious. With the threat of war, I hoped for more of a battle, felt let down there.

Sharv_Sona Is the series good because I have been deciding on whether to read the series or not, also what genre is it? 2y
bookish6 @Sharv_Sona It is a young adult series so it's a pretty quick read but it is really good. It is a fantasy series so it has fairies and elves in it. 2y
