Welcome back to the land of faerie! This book is rich and intense with political intrigue. If you love strong willed powerful women you will love Jude, she's just as strong as she was in the first two books! I fell in love with the support characters all over again and I love the mention of characters from her previous series. After becoming high queen and becoming exiled, Jude is forced back into the mortal world and must come to terms that Cardan has once again betrayed her. Her and Cardan's journey is transcendent and heartbreaking. Holly Black takes your heart, rips it apart and puts it together again. If you loved her previous works, you'll be immersed in this. The ending was everything I wanted and more!
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.
