The Queen of Nothing is by far my favorite in this trilogy by Holly Black. And the other two were great. I totally missed the riddle. But in this novel, that’s a good thing. I was surprised at the turn of events and how the plot played the conventional fairy mythology & plot in a new way. I again loved the arc of Jude. She continues to grow as both a leader and a character of strength. In this novel, I enjoyed the growth and changes in Cardan. Several of the supporting characters were given much more depth which added to the overall conflict.
