Staff Reviews

Imprisoned by maniacal Maven, King of Norta and suffering under the weight of his Silent Stone, a lightning-less Mare Barrow has lost all hope for her future. With Maven holding her puppet strings tight, a raging Mare dances against the Red rebellion, forsaking her newblood comrades and Cal, causing allegiances to crack and chaos to reign.  Will the little lightening girl escape the clutches of King Maven and rise to fight again? Or, will Mare lose her heart to Cal and a country destined for division and death? The King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard is the final installment in The Red Queen series and it’s fantastic!


Check out this text rant by Maddy:

I AM SO MAD AT THIS BOOK!!!!!! LUCKILY SHE IS WRITING A FOURTH BOOK NOW!!!!!! I am so angry, not completely surprised, but furious just the same. I’m so angry. I like mare a lot more after this book, but I think cal is going through his “angry confused too self righteous” stage now like mare did in the glass sword and katniss did in the beginning of mocking jay. I hate maven so much!!!!!! I need the fourth book now. I am so angry. I need to rant. Why did u give me this book?!?!?!?!!!  Weekend ruined. I loved the book, but am too emotional to not rant right now. You brought this upon yourself. Cal needs to get his priorities in line and Evangeline has to realize that Farley did not promise not to kill her brother. I hate the house Samos. I am angry at Cal. TEAM KILORN!!!!!!!!!! This is not ok. When u said it was the last book and I read the end I immediately googled it and there is gonna be a fourth book in a year and a half!!!!! AND WHEN U SAID IT WAS LIKE DIVERGENT I JUST CRINGED THE ENTIRE LAST HUNDRED PAGES!!!!!!!!!!! I’m angry. Sorry. Nobody else has read it.
I’m angry crying laughing right now and it is because of you.

My reply: ?? HILARIOUS!!!

The third book in the thrilling #1 New York Times bestselling series!

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen series, rebellion is rising and allegiances will be tested on every side. Perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series.

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.
