In the Red Queen series, Aveyard has constructed a compelling world and characters. The heroine, Mare Barrow, is as flawed as she is exceptional. She has to learn about trust and deceit, how to contain and control her lightening power, how to start a revolution against the reigning monarchy, who had adopted her as their own. Rebellion laced with romance amidst violence makes the reader race through.
King’s Cage is the final installment in the series. It leaves Mare without her lightening and being tormented by the boy she once loved. With a new king on the throne, the country gets ready to prepare for war, and Mare has a difficult decision to make.
