The moment you read the first book in the series you feel like Victoria Aveyard just got you used to awesome writing, crazy plots and unexpected types of characters and shocking events and LIFE LESSON: SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTS! So don’t talk shit about my dear Victoria because she wrote (and still writes, come on baby with the 4th book) one of the best series ever! And I should really consider buying the coloring book.
King’s Cage actually worried me because I haven’t seen any hope for Mare. I could not imagine any means to escape him. He’s a controlled psycho. He doesn’t really want to do all the stuff he does but he can’t help it and he just needs to be saved from himself. I know Cal’s plan is to help his brother and he actually expected Mare to follow but…oh man…I would’ve shocked Cal a little for that (I’m more of an every-man-for-himself kind of person).
Mare is one of the strongest book characters I’ve met. I admire her from every point of view and I don’t know what I would do if I would be in her place. She’s strong, capable, smart, mature and young. Too young to deal with all of this but look at her still kicking ass and that should be empowering for every girl. She does what she has to do and she is doing it well.
If you have read the first 2 books this is your sign to get this book and read it as soon as possible! You can’t possibly live with the action from the second book so I’m telling you you must read this madness.
I kinda wished this one had more of a typical ending (which isn’t something that happens often) but I just love Mare so I thought that she deserves so much better than to be left again tho’ I tried to understand Cal too.
In the end, everybody stands for what they believe.
So I’m not really able to post a lot because my laptop broke since october and I’m kinda struggling to write posts on my phone but I feel like I really have to. And the first post of the year goes to Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard.
I felt so good returning to this story! Especially because I loooveeed the first one so much, I just had to read this one as soon as possible. There are just so many things happening, you wouldn’t even believe it! Victoria knew how to hit the readers. You know I post spoiler-free reviews but I gotta tell you, if you haven’t started the second one, you really should. And nothing will prepare you for it.
By the way, I’m gonna share with you guys the trailer for the third book, The King’s Cage (Click on the title of the book).
I’ve been so tempted to start reading it but I always postponed it and I didn’t really want to start a new series. After finishing the book before it, I really had no idea what book should be the next one so I tried a few books to see which one’s gonna make me continue.
Of course my curiosity made me choose Red Queen. And it caught me right from the beginning so I thought some dystopia wouldn’t harm anyone.
I already wrote a review for it and I don’t really know what’s more to say but I know many people couldn’t really feel empathy towards Mare Barrow and they also didn’t buy anything that actually happened, but that’s not my case and I’m happy because I really wanted to enjoy it and man I totally did. It just hit the spot.
Ah, my most recent read and the book that I keep thinking of, Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen.
Rating: 5/5 of course.
No wonder this is a pretty popular book. It took me on a roller coaster of feelings and it has the perfect kind of adventure that I expected for such a long time.
This book turns very easily from fantasy to thriller. And that’s pretty dangerous if you’re gonna be attached to it just like I was.
When I thought at the beginning that I don’t know how this book is different from other books with conflicts between inferior and superior societies, BANG, I’ve been served some mutants…and superpowers…and wars…and rebellion…betrayals…and a love triangle (of course, of course, you can’t escape this).
I’m so curious about the sequel, I don’t know how I will resist until I get it.
