Kings Cage: Book review

 Book title: Kings Cage
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Genre: Dystopian
Target Audience: Young Adult

“Not a god’s chosen, but a god’s cursed. That’s what we all are.”


Why I chose this?

It’s book three of this series and I want to see if it gets better.



King's Cage (Red Queen #3)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.



What I thought

I really don’t understand the hype with this series. I finished this book less than 30 minutes before writing this and my reaction was

I felt bored during this book just waiting for something to happen and about 350-400 pages later it happened.

I honestly don’t know how to describe how I feel because it wasn’t bad (I enjoyed it more than Glass Sword) but I didn’t exactly like it.

I liked the shift in POV in this book as the other people’s POV we got wasn’t who I was expecting. I thought we were going to have a book from Mare and Cal’s perspectives not Mare, Cameron and Evangeline. If anything I think that’s what kept me going.
