He looks every inch the spy from the Court of Shadows, down to the sneaky smile pulling at a corner of his beautiful mouth.” [8] I could see where the plot was going from fairly early on and I could guess the solution to the novels major problem straight away, but, honestly, I didnt care. This series is just so much fun to read; these books are like popcorn, sweet and salty and moreish, and Ive read this whole trilogy this year purely and simply to be swept away somewhere else and entertained. This final book continued to do that for me, and I really enjoyed it! We have lived in our armor for so long, you and I. And now I am not sure if either of us knows how to remove it." (Queen of Nothing, 169) How the King of Elfhame Learned To Hate Stories (2020) is a companion novella that focuses on Cardan's perspective. [7] The Cruel Prince [ edit ] Plot [ edit ] No," I say. “No. Absolutely not. Never. If that’s why you came here, now you’ve got your answer and you can leave.”

Jude, acting as Queen, tries to formulate how to maintain her rule against Madoc's threat and solve Cardan's curse. Madoc and the Court of Teeth offer Jude the gift of a golden bridle that would be able to control Cardan. She later learns that they gave her incorrect instructions on how to use it, which would have tied her to the snake and left Madoc in control. A plan is made for Jude to capture the snake, but instead of putting the bridle on him, she cuts the snake's head off. The second part of the prophecy – only out of his spilled blood can a great ruler rise – is fulfilled when Cardan, in his original form, emerges from the pool of the snake's blood. In the Epilogue, Cardan and Jude are crowned and they banish Madoc to live in the human world.

Hi, I’m Sonia!

Jude, just hear me out." She walks in front of me, causing me to have to look at her. I glance up and then start to circle around the billowing skirts of her dress. 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.” I know my review sounds very negative but keep in mind that I DID enjoy it. I think I'm even experiencing a book hangover. After finishing, I felt lost somehow. All I've done the first half an hour or so was to mindlessly scroll through social media while contemplating life at the same time haha. It was weird, lol but I was certain, I LIKED THE BOOK. Being in the enemy nest now, Jude must find a way to escape and get to her sisters. Will she succeed? Will Cardan come and rescue her? The Queen of Nothing opens just after Jude has been pronounced Queen of Faerie, only to be abruptly exiled by King Cardan. Jude finds herself unmoored in the mortal world, spending her time with Vivi and Oak, watching her fair share of reality television... and trying to convince a cannibalistic faerie from hunting her own in the mortal world. But when her twin sister Taryn shows up asking a favor, Jude jumps at the chance to return to the Faerie world, even if it means facing Cardan. When a dark curse is unveiled, Jude must become the first mortal Queen of Faerie and figure out how to break it — or she will risk upsetting the balance of the whole Faerie world.

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.Later on, Balekin poisons Cardan and in his drugged state, Cardan kisses Jude on the mouth in front of the High Court. Jude was very worried about him and dueled with Balekin to get the antidote. Even though I am the queen in exile, I am still the queen. And that means Madoc isn’t just trying to take Cardan’s throne. He’s trying to take mine." The three sisters and their little brother are reclining after a major confrontation near the end of the book. Vivi confronts one of them, who is pregnant, You dont have to have this baby….I know in Faerie, children are rare and precious, and all that, but in the mortal world, theres such as thing as an abortion. To which Jude chimes in her support.

The tale goes that there was a boy who said awful things to everyone. Voicing whatever terrible thought he had. Telling the baker her bread was bad, the butcher that he was ugly, and his siblings that they were useless. He scorned the maidens of his village, calling them dull. He soon annoyed the town witch and she cursed him with the stone heart he acted like he had. He could not feel love, hate, or fear. The boy then had no reason to do anything. No reason to scorn the town, no reason to get up in the morning. Eventually, his mother made him go out into the world to find his fortune. Later, Jude asks Cardan to seduce Nicasia so they can get information on what her mother is planning. Cardan is furious with the request, and practices his wiles on Jude instead, asking her if this was how he should seduce Nicasia. The two get carried away and end up passionately kissing each other. Jude is severely injured from a fight with Madoc but still goes to warn Cardan after she realizes his life might be in danger. However, it turned out to be a ploy and Jude suffers a fall, hurting herself more. It is then that Cardan comes to her and declares to all of Elfhame that Jude is his wife and the rightful High Queen, no longer in exile.Cardan was the sixth and youngest child of the High King Eldred. His mother, Lady Asha, was not a consort to the king at any point in their relationship. After his birth, Lady Asha forbid Eldred from seeing Cardan until a week after Cardan was born. [1] At the prince's first presentation, the High King asked the Royal Astrologer, Baphen, in front of an audience to pronounce the young prince's future. Baphen predicted that Cardan would be the last of Eldred's children and that he will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne. Furthermore, he said "Only out of his spilled blood can a great ruler rise, but not before what I have told you comes to pass." [1] From this, Cardan's father, asked him to be taken away and raised by Lady Asha as she saw fit. I can’t believe it’s over. This series, this world, these characters...I do not have the words to express how much happiness they've given me. I don’t know what to apologize for first,” I say. “Cutting off your head or hesitating so long to do it. I didn’t want to lose what little there was left of you. And I can’t quite think past how wonderous it is that you’re alive.” Lady Asha departed with her head high, her grip on the child tighter. Baphen felt a shiver of some premonition that had nothing to do with stars.

Relationships can be so very hard and so very not pretty. Obviously we get to see Jude and Cardan, obviously we get to see Jude and her sisters, but seeing Jude and Madoc? That’s what kept breaking me. How do you love a father who became your father by killing your own? A father that loves you so very much, but loves power more? Jude and Madoc are truly the kings of this book and this chessboard, and their dynamic is truly unlike one I’ve read before. So heartbreakingly beautiful, truly. Justin Duarte: Former master sword-smith; Husband of Eva; Father to Jude and Taryn; Killed by MadocThat arrangement lasted until Prince Cardan was able to crawl. By then, the cat was heavy with a new litter and he’d begun to pull at her tail. She fled to the stables, abandoning him, too. Okay, let’s talk about some of the big things in this book while we are in this spoiler section, too. Let’s just get the snake out of the bag (end me). You know, with all the buzz about the 2019 YA book snake, I really didn’t expect for Cardan to turn into her. Wow, truly wow. I love a good fairytale twist in my fae stories, and it was truly one worthy of ballads. Seeing Jude realize that she would rather not have Cardan than only being able to have him controlled? I will be forever crying. So beautiful. Also, the sword she did it with? Truly forever crying.
