King’s Cage (Red Queen #3) by Victoria Aveyard

30226723


The blurb belongs to Red Queen # 1 so you can read it freely (I didn’t want to make you spoilers)

This is a world divided by blood-red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

I thought it’s time for us to have a little talk about how my readings are going because if you don’t follow me on Goodreads or on Twitter you probably don’t know my thoughts so here I go. I’m currently reading this one, which is the third book in the Red Queen series, you know that I’m making this kind of series where I’ll be reading popular old YA series during the year and this is the first one that was chosen to read.
I want to be brief but also give you an idea about what I think since I’ll be making a complete post about all these books once I finish reading it.
Basically, I have that feeling that each book is a bit weaker than the previous one, with this luckily I feel that right now it’s getting better and better towards the end, but it also has a weak beginning with a very descriptive plot for the most part, kind of too much for my taste. But for the most part, I think it’s a faithful old YA series, you know? It has several cliches but personally doesn’t prevent my enjoyment and teleports me when I read Shatter Me or Shadow and Bone for the first time and that makes me nostalgic, they’re good feelings.
Something that amazes me about the author is her great talent for writing endings, so far I’ve loved each ending, they really took my breath away and has that ability of you want to read more and then want to immediately pick up the next book, which It’s amazing and I think that’s why I’m reading it so fast, I really want to know what will happen.
Also with this book, in particular, I really appreciate the unexpected turn that some characters have taken, which has given them much more depth and you know that I’m all for some good complex characters, so I liked that a lot, although I confess that in large part I’m here for the plot, it’s interesting and I adore this type of plot where there are social class wars and “the chosen one” is still something I enjoy.
I’ll talk a LOT more spoiler-free in my post and in my mini-reviews, I promise, I wanted to give you a general look, but in summary, I’m having a great time with these books, they may not be perfect for me but they’re intense and give what they promise.

Red Queen (Red Queen #1) & Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard

| Goodreads | Goodreads |


Well, of course, it will be all about Red Queen, I’ve been devoting myself fully to this series and as I’ve previously mentioned it, may not be a new favorite but it’s a very entertaining series and very easy to read.
Red Queen so far is my favorite book I’ve read of the series, I think it’s a very solid beginning with the typical plot where the main character is involved in a world she doesn’t know and is dangerous and discovers that she’s the chosen one and since there the plot begins to develop within a world where the color of your blood defines your life. I love the concept, the idea is very good and much can be done with it, but I’m also glad that the author has decided to give a different plot twist towards the ending so that the world can be expanded since we almost don’t move in the first book so the world-building as such we will know more about during Glass Sword. It’s also always fun to start a series, right? knowing the characters and the conflicts always make me feel excited, so obviously, it was a very fun start, there are many powers involved, a rare love quartet that I’ll talk about more once I read all the books and a solid main character but with a personality of which I also have A LOT to say.
Glass Sword, I think suffers a lot from the second book syndrome, it didn’t impact me much, improves a lot towards the ending, which I enjoy and love when there’s a recruitment and we know new characters that will help the plot to move forward. I liked how certain events and characters were explored, but this is where I feel there’s a lot of fill-ins and a too descriptive plot that makes the reading feel dense, you know? I also noticed the MC personality change quite a lot, which I found weird, but I’ll not go into details, I’ll leave everything juice for my main post. I think the weakest book could be this one because so far I’m enjoying more of King’s Cage, but we’ll see.

War Storm (Red Queen #4) by Victoria Aveyard

I didn’t want to include the synopsis because I don’t want to spoil myself, that would be tragic lol. Of course and to no one surprise, I’ll be continuing with the series, I’m super committed to finishing it this month, so it will be my priority, it has more than 600 pages so it’s quite a big boy, but I’ll do my best, the only thing that makes me sad is that I don’t know if I can read Red White & Royal Blue, but I plan to read it anyway in February of not being able to this month because I’ve already included it in my TBRs for a thousand years and it’s becoming repetitive and annoyed lol. So don’t kill me, I’ll read it just that I don’t know when. I hope this ending is good *fingers crossed * and so can bring you my post talking about this series, which I don’t know if it will be this month neither, maybe the next one to be more accurate but everything is happening guys, and I feel super excited about being doing this challenge, will finally take me to read series that otherwise, I would never have picked up, so I hope it’s fun for you & I’m very sorry that this post is SO boring!!! lol, I really wanted to share with you what I was reading and basically, I’m reading ALL the same series, so I know that it’s something repetitive, but hey, I love you and I love to share with you!.

  1. I really enjoyed this series as well, though I do agree that each book got a little darker than the previous one and made me like the characters less and less. But I did find it to be pretty exciting overall and I’m glad that I decided to stick with it until the end.

    1. I’m SO glad you enjoyed it!! I agree it doesn’t bother me that it gets darker, in fact, I think it’s a great addition to the plot, but the characters undoubtedly get more insufferable with each book lol. Still enjoying the plot and I’m very curious to know how it will end! 😄💕

    1. I agree and I understand what you say 100%, I loved the first book but the second and third were less memorable for me, I think they would be better books maybe if they were shorter and were straight to the point instead of throwing so much flat information. We see what happens with the last book, I’m excited to know how it will end and finally share it! ❤️

  2. I loved Red Queen, thought Glass Sword was okay, and then ultimately DNFd King’s Cage. It was a series that had such promise at the beginning but then just seemed to get less interesting with each book, sadly.

    Currently I am reading The Toll by Neal Shusterman, and if you haven’t yet checked out the Arc of a Scythe trilogy, then I absolutely recommend it. Scythe and Thunderhead were brilliant, and I’m sure this concluding novel is going to be great as well.

    1. OMG, I agree with you so much, love the first one but the second one and the third one are quite average and flat, I’ll talk more about them soon, now I’m about to start with the last one, so *fingers crossed* I hope it has an ending that it’s worth it. 😊

      I LOVE Scythe!! 😍 I read it last year and it was among my favorite books of the year, I’ll surely pick up the other books of the trilogy this year because I can’t wait, that plot is one of the most amazing I’ve come across with!
      I hope you enjoy The Toll ❤️

      1. Oh, I did like the short story/novellas set in the Red Queen world, though. Well, I liked one of them more than the other, but still, they were worth the read.

        So far I am really enjoying The Toll. It would be so easy to devour this 600+ page tome, but I’m trying to pace myself a bit and savor the reading experience.

  3. I haven’t read Red Queen yet. It’s been on my TBR for ages but I’m sort of on a self-imposed YA break at the moment so I don’t know when I’ll get to it. I do want to, one day of course.

    Presently, for some reason, my heart is leaning towards rereads of old favorite romances. So while I have a ton of new reads I want to get to, all I really do these days is align my reads to the Fated Mates podcast. Have you heard of it? If not, you definitely should! It’s done by the queen of historical romance Sarah Maclean and you’ll spend the hour laughing until you cry!

    Have a great reading week!
    If interested, please do check my WWW. 🙂

      1. Thank you, you too! ❤️ And since you’re checking out Fated Mated and are a romance reader, there’s a group headed by Maclean on Facebook. It’s called OSRBC and its a great positive place to discuss all things romance. Do check it out if interested.
        Have an awesome weekend. Happy reading! ❤️🥰
