I would give this book 4.5 for a review.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling 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…
I will admit I have waited for a long time for this read. I was lucky enough to get arc of wicked king last year so It has been adventure waiting. I really did enjoy this book. I thought this book had a nice balance of plot/character stuff and also fan service balance. I really enjoyed how tightly wound this story was. I thought the pacing was hard to put down and the characters i still really did enjoy. As for the plot and more so the Villain, I just felt the stakes were higher in other books in this series. It wanted more from the villain. I really did loved all the twists and turns in this read, and overall was impressed with the end, I just wanted higher stakes like in the previous books in this series.
