King’s Cage

Red Queen #3

Reviewed by Melanie on March 22, 2017


I was overjoyed when I was able to download and listen to this book. All my reading friends had bought it, and I was just patiently waiting for the audiobook, to which I was number 23 in line to check it out. Sure I could have bought it from Audible, or even checked it out at the library, but I wanted to finish it through overdrive instead.

After the ending of Glass Sword, I was ready for more action and for the story to really make strides forward. I was pretty disappointed by the fact that nothing really happened throughout the book. There is a lot of inner dialogue, and a lot of thoughts about Maven, and will Cal save me, but mostly it was pretty boring.

Mare’s power being silenced, and her meals with Maven made the story really tame, and not quite the back to ass kicking I was expecting. Hopefully the next book, if there is one will get back on track and we can move forward instead of continually spinning our wheels waiting for the end of the story.

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.
