King's Cage - Book Review

The 3rd book I read for my 24 books in 2017 is King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard.

King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard
Hardcover: 528 pages  Publisher: HarperTeen (February 7, 2017)

So a year ago, my sister-in-law got me hooked on the Red Queen series. It was about the time the 2nd book came out. I read through the first one, bought the 2nd one on my kindle the moment I finished the first, and then bought the two novellas the second I finished the 2nd book. Then, I had to wait a whole year for this book to come out.

This book starts out with Mare Borrow trapped as Maven Calore's prisoner. He takes away her powers with silent stone and is on a mission to control his country even if it means betraying people who have been loyal to him. Meanwhile Cal and the other new bloods are trying to figure out how to get Mare back as well as prepare for the impending war.

King's Cage was so good. I love the suspense and how easy it is to be invested in the characters. This book picked up right where the last one left off.  I like that it tells the point of view through the character's eyes and you can see all the different sides of the story. Seeing the story through the character's eyes helped me get invested in a character I hated, and a character I probably wouldn't have thought too much about if it weren't done this way. It made your emotions through the story more conflicted and more confusing.

I would definitely recommend this book to any of my friends but you have to read Red Queen and Glass Sword first.

The one thing I wasn't crazy about was the ending. I won't say what happened, only that I was super disappointed in the characters' decisions. I hope it will all be resolved in the next book, because I finished this book in tears.
