Book Review: The Queen of Nothing, by Holly Black (2019).

What an awesome book! The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black is the third and final book in the Folk of the Air series. And what an adventure it has turned out to be! It all begins with Jude in exhile from faerie, and living with her sister and brother in the mortal world. Since Heather moved out after returning from the faerie, and is the reason why his wife Jude remains in the mortal world. So basically there is a whole lot going on and everything is in turmoil.

This book is full of adventure and excitement throughout, and it brings together all storylines which helps to explain many unanswered questions that were brought about in the previous novels. I have found this book almost impossible to put down. The storyline has so many twists and turns that I had difficulty and other times found it impossible to predict what was going to happen. Jude has her hands full with everything going on, and her life and well being hang in the balance a lot of the time. I am actually surprised at the amount she manages to do in this novel. I guess that what happens when one is raised in the lands of Faerie.

Basically, this book ha been written in such a well established setting and with such fabulous characters that reading makes you feel surrounded by magic yourself. I found it hard not to keep reading once I started, and I feel a little sad knowing that the series is over.

Overall I would recommend this book to all fantasy lovers and to those that enjoy the magic of the faerie. I think that young adult and older age groups would definitely enjoy this book. I give this book a rating of 10/10 stars.
