Rating: Evil Love




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…

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.


Jude is in exile but when Taryn asks for help, she doesn’t hesitate to return to the world of the Fae even if it means losing her life. Taryn has killed her husband and needs her sister to lie for her, Jude will have to face Cardan.

I’m very happy to have been right at the end of The Wicked King, it’s a pure pleasure to see that I guessed right. I won’t say any more, at least this last volume is off to a great start.

I love Jude and Cardan, the moments when they’re together are always interesting and they’re both so great. I’m a big fan of their couple because no matter what events they have to face they do it together even if it can seem quite complex at first. And even though Jude doesn’t quite trust Cardan anymore.

I liked this last book, everything is there, love, friendship, family, hope and frankly I love it when a book makes me feel all kinds of feelings like The Queen Of Nothing did.

The characters are all very interesting, whether they are human or Faes. War is coming and the Queen is going to have to be respected.

Holly Black has a real gift for telling thrilling stories that make you vibrate.

Quick word: A book that perfectly concludes this trilogy on a joyful and hopeful note.


Jude est en exil mais lorsque Taryn lui demande de l’aide, elle n’hésite pas à retourner dans le monde des Faes quitte à perdre la vie. Taryn a tué son mari et a besoin de sa sœur pour mentir à sa place, Jude va devoir se confronter à Cardan.

Je suis très heureuse d’avoir eu raison à la fin de The Wicked King, c’est un pur plaisir de voir que j’avais deviné juste. Je n’en dirais pas plus, en tout cas ce dernier tome commence très bien.

J’adore Jude et Cardan, les moments où ils sont tous les deux sont toujours interessants et ils sont tellement géniaux tous les deux. Je suis une grande fan de leur couple car peu importe les évènements qu’ils ont à affronter ils le font ensemble même si cela peut paraitre assez complexe au début. Et même si Jude n’a plus tout à fait confiance en Cardan.

J’ai aimé ce dernier tome, tout y est réuni, l’amour, l’amitié, la famille, l’espoir et franchement j’aime quand un livre me fait éprouver toutes sortes de sentiments comme The Queen Of Nothing l’a fait.

Les personnages sont tous très intéressants, qu’ils soient humains ou Faes. La guerre est proche et la Reine va devoir se faire respecter.

Holly Black a un vrai don pour raconter des histoires palpitantes qui vous font vibrer.

En bref : Un tome qui conclue parfaitement cette trilogie sur une note joyeuse et pleine d’espoir.
