He will be the destruction of the crown and the ruination of the throne. Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold on to. Jude learned that lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.

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 terrible curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity....
This book, the conclusion to the series was epic, I enjoyed book one and two, even if those were a bit slow and sometimes one-sided when it came to Jude. But this book was great and so much more I had hoped for.
I was not always a big fan of Jude and thought that sometimes she is a bit spoiled, power hungry and whiny. But I loved her in this books, I can’t say she necessarily grew because she is the same ole Jude. But something finally clicked for her or at least that were my thoughts. I loved her in this book and I loved the fact that I did finally love her at last, in her final book.
Cardan while still a bit the same also changed or something clicked. I also liked how they and everything else just came together and it made sense and didn’t feel forced because it was the last book.
While we get a HEA and everything came together nicely, it was a wild ride to get there. This book had one twist after another and kept throwing us through loops and not everyone might have made it after all.
This being the final book, I don’t want to say to much and spoil anything so I will make it fairly quick and vague
We do see everyone, we heard of or met …… mostly. Family and friends was a big theme in this book. The good, the bad and ugly parts of it.
Overall I just loved this book, it was fast paced, funny, lots of action and plot twists and topped off with some romance.
I also though the ending was almost perfect and I really enjoyed it and couldn’t stop smiling about some of the things that happened.
That being said, I wouldn’t mind a spin-off book or book about some of the remaining people.
I rate this book 5 ★
