OH MY MARE! My heart hurts and I don’t think I want to jump into King’s Cage. Nope.
That is a lie. I already started it before I started this review.
THAT ENDING THOUGH.
Okay. This book jumps right in where Red Queen let off. It was SO MUCH screaming and happy while also so much OMGoshing at the same time.
With everyone now on the hunt for the new bloods and Maven on the hunt for Mare and Cal, things get hot fast. This book was a lot of everyone coming to terms with the fact that life isn’t like they thought it was and it is time to change it. It is time to really fight.
But first it’s time to save those that don’t know they are in danger yet.
I swooned, I cringed, and I cried. There was so much going on in this book that you are going to devour it and miss things, so take your time and enjoy every page and word, because where you et to the end you are going to HAVE to jump into the next book. You won’t have a chance. Glass swords break, just like red queens won’t ever sit on a thrown. Not while the world is as divided as it lays now.
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.
