Book Review: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

30226723Title: King’s Cage
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Book Series: Red Queen, #3
Reading Format: Hardcover
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

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.


First off, this book was honestly better than Red Queen and Glass Sword. I mean those two weren’t exactly perfect now that I look back, and maybe this one is the same way, ut, right now, I think it is. There was a lot of twists and turns that just had me on the edge of my seat most of the time or up late; refusing to sleep.

There were moments where I hated most of the characters and wanted to throw the book at the wall because of their stupid actions, but isn’t that what makes a good book? That is the main reason behind the 5 star rating. If there was zero moments like this then it might be a lower number.

Sadly, Mare is still a little annoying, but for King’s Cage I am grateful that it is told in two perspectives so it gave me a little break from the main character we all got used to in the last two books. Thank you, Victoria for that, because I absolutely love getting into the other characters’ brains. I don’t know why or how to explain it, but I am definitely the type of person who loves reading books with multiple character perspectives.

Anyway, can we talk about that ending? I promise I won’t give it away for those who have not read the book yet, but here’s a question for the people who have completed it: What did you think?

For me, I kind of saw it coming so it was not a jaw dropper to me this time. I mean, I was a little shocked, but that’s it.

Besides all of that, I found King’s Cage to be enjoyable and, like I said in the beginning, better than the other books. I am actually excited to see what happens in the next book.

Start from the beginning . . .
