I won’t lie, I went into this book and thought it was the last book in the series and when I got to 80% and realized it wasn’t I was PISSED. I hate coming to a CH when I thought it was the last book in a series.
TOTALLY my fault for not paying attention at all. Now I get to day dream about the 4th book and fill my mind with all the ways that ending could be changed, because SO MANY FEELS.
Cal. Maven. Eve. Mare. SHADE. I have all the feels and my heart hurts. Can we go back to Red Queen and just do a little assassination and call things good? Because everyone needs to get their lives back together.
This book was the best yet. With Mare a prisoner, you know things are bound to get interesting, and interesting they sure do get. You get multiple POVs in this book and it really helps you with the bouncing around to the different groups.
Mare goes through so much. My hearts hurts just thinking about it. Her life as a prisoner could either save her or kill her. In the end its a coin toss to decide. Will he break her?
Then we had Cal and the camp of new bloods/reds/silvers and all that. They didn’t exactly have it easy during this time either. With the hunt bearing down, they do what they have to so they can survive.
UGH. So much. I don’t even know what to say. If you read the first two books, you NEED this one!
In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?
Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.
As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.
When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.
