Second preorder ever and THIS BOOOOOOK transformed me into a large snake.
Special edition: Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition features an alternate jacket and contains letters from Cardan.
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.
Jude is in exile. Her annoying sister convinces her to pose as her (Taryn) because she’s in huge trouble after “accidentally” murdering her husband, Locke. She goes, stuff happens, and it’s fabulous. Now everyone knows she’s the Queen! (also Cardan’s wife so iNtErEsting) Also Cardan is interested in gummy worms which proves that gummy worms are the superior candy. (Also that snowglobe “Congrats on your promotion” is the literal best can I send one to the next queen/king of England?)

pg 263: “With my whole heart, I wish Cardan was here… I miss him, and the pain of it is a yawning chasm, one into which I yearn to let myself fall.”
pg 48: “… You are nothing.”
(exclusive letter) “Come home and shout at me. Come home and fight with me. Come home and break my heart, if you must.”
(exclusive letter) “I urge you: Come be angry at a nearer distance.”
what I liked about the book
I liked the roller coaster plot. OMJG so many twists. AND THE REYLONESS
(This is SO reylo)
what i disliked about the book
That prologue had literally nothing to do with the book as far as I could tell. Tho I only read it once, I might be missing something.
On a scale of Locke’s corpse to Oak’s existence
GUMMY WORMS (9 3/4, aka the best ever rating)
THAT WAS A WILD RIDE. I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY.
