King's Cage (Red Queen #3)
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.
The plot was great and interesting. Victoria Aveyard really knows how to draw readers in.
There were also a lot of twists and turns and so many unpredictable alliances and events.
The book really picked up when Mare finally escaped, used her amazing lightning and was reunited with Cal, her friends and family.
It was another surprise when there was also chapters from Evangeline's perspective as she reveals more about herself and her family. Something I also did not expect. And all the fight scenes were really action packed and something I didn't know I was really waiting for. The last battle scene was really interesting and so was the ending. I'm really excited to see where the next book will go.
