  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 September #2
    *Starred Review* In this closing volume to what has been an unusually strong trilogy, Black sends Jude Duarte, who was first a human spy in a faerie court (The Cruel Prince, 2018), then a seneschal to a faerie prince (The Wicked King, 2019), and is now the exiled Queen of Faerie herself, into her most fraught mission yet. Betrayed by Cardan, the High King of Faerie, her sometimes-enemy, sometimes-lover, just as they'd reached a tenuous peace, Jude is eking out a living in the mortal world when her twin sister, Taryn—herself familiar with betrayal—finds her to beg for help. Taryn needs Jude to impersonate her in Faerie, but Jude is forbidden from returning there, and the people she'll run into if she pretends to be Taryn are those most likely to see through her disguise. But Jude was never one to shy away from a challenge, and she has scores to settle, debts to pay, and a crown to claim in Faerie. She may be down, but Jude's not out; she remains a wily political thinker until the bitter end. Though Black ties up a few plotlines early on in this finale, the action remains explosive until the rewarding ending. There are even a few additional characters who turn up, adding new life to an already fresh tale. A compelling final piece in a powerful set. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The first two books in the series sold big, as did the movie rights for The Cruel Prince. Let's face it: people want this book. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
