Victory comes at a price. Mare Barrow learned this all too well when a betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart, and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like herself, Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all ... starting with the crown on Maven's head. But no battle is won alone. Before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force. But Maven is driven by an obsession so deep, he will stop at nothing to have Mare as his own again, even if it means demolish everything, and everyone, in his path. War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced? All will be tested, but not all will survive.

I really liked this royal fantasy series and totally loved Victoria Aveyard's vision of the future!

Red Queen series book 4 (last)

lgmosher Oct 13, 2019

Davidson describes the book (and really the entire series) PERFECTLY:
"...... watching overpowered children sneer at one another....."

Because all anyone did is the book is make snide remarks and then have another meeting.... even te "war" scenes were boring, absolutely so.

So, war politics can be terribly boring and there are was to push through them because they are necessary and actually make them entertaining and worth the read. Sadly, Aveyard did not do this.

The war politics were awful, absolutely horrendous to get through. It could have been written so much better.

"Your death will be quick Maven." Really. As a reader, and lover of Maven, he deserved a death so much more than the quick dismissal than what she gave him.

She set up so much and is starting to let it crumble with weak words.
FINALLY we get a male perspective. though I think she could have dove us deeper into the chaos that is Maven's mind.

The girls continue to be insufferable, specifically Evangelene and honestly she is unnecessary. All she ever does is recap, bore!

There is SO much filler in this book, If she would have just got to the point it would have made it a more thrilling read and less boring... not as hard to get through.

Evangelenes POV is absolutely insufferable.

Iris isn't much better. If I thought Mare or Evangelene were cry babies she takes the cake! Just shut up and make a decision!

Mares constant back and forth in her head is useless to the story and only confuses me more.

The book is honestly nothing but a lot of filler... I'm holding out for Maven! My sweet chaotic Maven, the only part of the book that Im looking for"
All I have to say is... so. much. filler.

If Aveyard would just get to the point the book would be much more entertaining. I want so see how the story ends, I want to have Maven back in our lives. But honestly I'm getting really tired so sick, whiney little girls who don't do anything for themselves but then say that they're awesome strong women

not one of the women, except for Farley are strong independent women.

So in conclusion I read almost 700 pages of words that didn't matter.

honestly nothing happens in the book,.

And we'll just talk about Mare for one second. She FINALLY gets what she wants, Cal agrees... it may be because of his mother who cares, shes getting what she wants and the choice still isn't good enough for her immature self. Youre 18, not 12... please act like it.

Reading the series was king of a waste. and honestly I would have gotten more out of reading the summary instead of wasting my time on actually reading her pointless words, you screwed up Aveyard.... you had a great story but you botched it in the end.

ITS OKAY TO GIVE THE READERS WHAT THEY WANT SOMETIMES..... something that Aveyard needs to learn.

again, I completely agree with Davidson just a bunch of overpowered children sneering at one another.

Favourite book in the series. I actually cried. Would definitely recommend

This series was really amazing. I loved the book WarStorm. My all time favorite characters are Cal and Mare. I just wish that the ending was Cal and Mare getting together rather than going away from each other.

I wasn’t as heartbroken at the end as I feared I’d be. I really do enjoy this series. The characters really make you feel. Despite the amount of time it took me to finish, you do always want to keep reading. My biggest problem possibly comes from the fact that I listened rather than read, but it bothered me when she ended certain chapters in a way that seemed like the book could be ending. All in all, I’d definitely recommend it.

The story was a bit slow in the beginning, but it got better when Mare and Cal forgave each other. I didn't really like the ending, even though it says "I will go back to him", they don't actually get together in the end and I found that upsetting. On the bright side, at least she decided to get back with him. Awesome book!

Okay, so I was super excited for this book. I had just randomly picked the first book of the series off the shelf because I saw War Storm displayed in the 'newly purchased by the library section' I read the first book and was immediately hooked. The first book was great, the second book was just as good, and the third book was good on my scale, but not as good as the first two. This book, however, made me almost want to DNF. It was only my hope for the ending that made me continue on. In the third book, one of the only things that helped with the multiple perspectives thing (which I wasn't prepared for, and was a surprising turn) was that it was from two perspectives, and only for the purposes of knowing what was happening out in the world because Mare had been imprisoned. (It also helped that the other POV was from the perspective of my absolute FAVORITE character). In War Storm, the POV jumps all over the place. It also wasn't very entertaining. Every single chapter from Iris' POV made me want to fall asleep. Aveyard put too much political intrigue into this book, which made it, at some points, a major snooze-fest. Also, everyone who hates the ending, know that I believe it was a randomly thrown together ending on purpose. Victoria Aveyard has been writing these books and these characters for a long time. Her ending was set up so that she could likely write more novellas about the change in her world, which, although is a brilliant business strategy, isn't the best for readers who JUST WANT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENS! Although I loved the series up until now, this book certainly lowered the Red Queen books on my book rating list. Red Queen would have been better off a trilogy, and condensed into 3 books. (Also, I would have liked to see more of Cameron. I don't like how in King's Cage, she really just disappeared after she found her brother. She only has 1 scene in War Storm, which disappoints me)
