Summary from Goodreads:
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.
My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):
This was a thrilling and phenomenal book. Victoria Aveyard has grown so much as a writer, and it’s so obvious in this book. Everything was just so fantastic.
Okay, I’m just gonna dive right in.
I loved how there are now different point-of-views, because it allowed the reader to understand the emotions of more characters, not just Mare.
There was such great character development throughout this whole book. Every character grew so much in so many ways.
I also thought this book was very exciting and action packed the whole way through. I was never bored, so that was good.
Mare’s story throughout this was especially spectacular. Specifically her story with Cal. 😉
Speaking of Cal, I thought he also became a much better character in this story.
There were so many great epic battle scenes, too. I loved being able to see a lot of the different new blood powers throughout the book.
I also loved the diversity that came about in this book.
the one thing I didn’t really like was all the political stuff that went on in this book. I don’t usually like political stuff because it confuses me.
I’m really excited to see how this series will be ended. There are definitely some problems that are going to have to be solved.
