This second part of The Folk of the Air series is a nonstop thrill ride. Jude has all the power, or does she? Is betrayal right around the corner? Will Cardan complete the transformation from cruel prince to wicked king and seize his throne in its entirety? Jude compensates for her lack of experience with sheer fortitude. At times she reminds me of Mare in the Red Queen series. If you loved The Cruel Prince, you will love this one as much or more and wish for The Queen of Nothing to come out sooner than later.
