Summary: He will be 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…
My review: This was a pretty good ending to the series!!!
I didn't love everything about this, but that is a whole for the series. It's becoming one of my favorite series, even though I hate so many characters and could do without some of the relationships (I didn't hate how things ended, but I also didn't really like or enjoy it. Cardan grew on me. A little bit. But I know as soon as I go back to book one, I will hate him again with a burning passion.)
But I love this whole book series as a whole. I love the world. This world is so freaking stunning. I just love it. I also love Jude a lot, she makes this book for me, she is one of those main characters that I TRULY love, who ends up becoming my baby that I will protect at all costs (even though she probably doesn't need it and could protect me instead, BUT OH WELL).
That's it. It probably doesn't make much sense but my weird love/hate for these books don't make much sense to me either!!!
