APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen series concludes with all the excitement and romance that fans of Mare Barrow's saga would expect. The bold but emotionally complicated teen resistance leader has to put aside her broken heart and join forces with the man who betrayed her in order to overthrow the new King of Norta. The tense storyline unfolds through multiple points of view, delivering plenty of epic battles, familial betrayals, and thwarted romance on its way to a conclusion that's not quite the one we expected all along.
The book was spectacular, as are the the previous ones. I spent months reading through these books and I truly felt like I was alongside Mare herself enduring it all. Especially in King’s Cage, when Mare had been stuck under Maven’s control for months. It truly took a toll on me as well, and I cried when I realized so much time had passed since she last saw everyone she loved. Gosh what a journey we have been on, and I cannot wait to continue with the movies that Victoria Aveyard makes in the future, hopefully. 😉 Wrapping this up, these four books were absolute spectacular, thrilling, and tremendously amazing, I have never ever read something so good, and I have read many books. Thank you Victoria Aveyard for putting me on this magical, unforgettable journey, may it never end.
Also: was anyone else confused about how we never saw Maven’s body? We read that Mare killed him, but we never get full proof of it all. Kilorn even remarks to Mare in the last chapter that they don’t know where the body is, and it is never brought up again. Mare also says that she needs proof to know that Maven is actually dead, as she did with Elara’s body in the third book. We never get that proof. Hmmmm, just something to think a about......
Drags out the love story
Dissapointing to see the love story between Cal and Mare play out; there was no real conclusion, to whether or not they would end up together or not.
I have wanted for this book for months but when I finished the book I was disappointed in the author and just the plot of the book. Definitely not a good way to end the series that I have been in love with
