After being pronounced Queen of Faerie and then abruptly exiled by the Wicked King Cardan, Jude finds herself unmoored, the queen of nothing. She spends her time with Vivi and Oak, watches her fair share of reality television, and does the odd job or two, including trying to convince a cannibalistic faerie from hunting her own in the mortal world.

When her twin sister Taryn shows up asking of a favor, Jude jumps at the chance to return to the Faerie world, even if it means facing Cardan, who she loves despite his betrayal.

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. 

 

As the final book in the Folk of the Air trilogy, The Queen of Nothing was an enjoyable story that tied up the plot and the characters' journeys nicely. There was plenty of action and adventure, including a twist I hadn't seen coming and I was satisfied with how everything concluded. Overall, I would give this series 4-4.5 stars and I can recommend it for fans of YA fantasy and stories about the Fae. All three books certainly kept me turning the pages and it was a fun adventure reading them.
