Series: Red Queen Series
Genre: Fantasy Fiction, Fiction
Tonight I stepped back into Norta. The kingdom of the young, evil King Maven Calore. I started read in this installment of Red Queen quite awhile back but never got to finish it because I had to return it to the library (dang those library due dates and late fees!). I was really into the story as well! You couldn’t pull me away from the poor, broken Mare if you wanted to! Tonight was different though. It was a bit difficult to get into again but after about a chapter, I was swept back into screaming at how stupid these characters are! Guys, I love them to death but what the heck are they even try in to do at this point except apparently get themselves killed!
Character development? Oh, well, you know…Mare goes through a lot and realizes she needs change within herself. Maven becomes worse with time. Cal shows that he’s a sweet guy who would kill to have Mare back…and he does. And so on and so forth UNTIL that dang plot twist right near the end that I can’t tell you about without spoiling because my goodness I’m about to slap his highness!
Aveyard’s writing style still continues to impress me with how easily it is written, and yet done so that it is more mature as well. King’s Cage is about finding strength at our lowest points, and sticking together no matter what the stakes are. Aveyard allows the reader to put themselves in the heart of her characters. From failing to pieces with them, all the way to hearing future wedding bells calling their names.
You can not going wrong by reading Aveyard’s work…that is, unless you hate your heart bursting away from you because some of this content just hurts so bad, but then others are wayyyy to perfect! I highly suggest looking into reading the Red Queen series! (Sorry this is a bit short…I didn’t want a lot of spoilers in it. It’s also pretty late here and I need to rest up for tomorrow.)
