War Storm - Victoria Aveyard, Review

Wednesday, 20 June 2018


Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal's betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart-and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her-Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all . . . starting with the crown on Maven's head.
But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force. But Maven is driven by an obsession so deep, he will stop at nothing to have Mare as his own again, even if it means demolish everything - and everyone - in his path.
War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced?

In the epic conclusion to Victoria Aveyard's stunning series, Mare must embrace her fate and summon all her power . . . For all will be tested, but not all will survive.
War Storm is the last book in the Red Queen Series. King's Cage was left on a major cliff hanger so after what feels like waiting forever, I was so excited to get my hands on it! As with any ending of a series you have strong feelings about, I was nervous about whether I was going to be happy or not with the final outcome. I had so many mixed emotions starting the final book, but I couldn't put it down. 

It was the longest book of the series and there were small parts or characters that could have probably been taken out all together as they didn't actually contribute anything to the story line. But on the majority, it was a complete page turner, with twists and turns around every corner. 

I was really surprised how much I enjoyed Evangeline's story line and, no matter how much I hated her and her scheming ways in the previous books, I was rooting for her throughout this last instalment. I loved Montfort and everything that it brought to the table, being the ultimate safe haven for any and all. Without giving away too much of a spoiler, I was so nervous that Aveyard would spoil the whole location with a plot twist turning the whole place on its head, but I finished the book wanting to book a flight there asap. 

Every stage of the war had me on the edge of my seat, not being able to read fast enough. With so many high ranking royals and military I didn't know who was going to undermine who next. I don't think there could have been a much more satisfying end to the series as a whole. Of course there were elements of the storyline left unanswered and there definitely wasn't a happily ever after moment, as such. But I thought it was a great book to end the whole story. I'm just gutted it's all over.
