The #1 bestselling Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard comes to a stunning conclusion in this fourth and final book.
VICTORY COMES AT A PRICE.
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 fo...more

It's the kind of bad that makes you set down the book and stare off into the middle distance, and reevaluate the life choices that brought this book into your world.
In an effort to channel my undoubtedly unorganized and enraged rant, I will limit my review to the Premise, Mare, the World Building and the Page Count
I will not be a red queen.Are. You. F*cking. Kidding. Me.
What the point then?
After four over-hyped and under-edited books our Little Miss Perfec ...more
I don't know what it is about these books, but I always finish them within a few days. Even this 600+page book.
I think this is my favorite book in the series. And a lot of it had to do with the different POV's. In this story we get Mare (duh), Evangeline, Iris, Cal, and Maven.
Mare- I had saw reviews for the previous books stating that they didn't like Mare and that she was annoying and stuff. And I didn't notice it in the first two books, and not even in the third book, but damn I was so a ...more
War Storm??! more like Clouds with drizzle!
For a book this big (almost 700 pages), with this cover, name and the fact that it is a finale, you would expect it to be so action-packed and interesting. Actually this dragged on way more than necessary, I thought it was something in me so I asked my reading buddies and they were not enjoying it so much too!
The fact that almost nothing important happens till chapter 20 made me consider DNFing ...more
I had to reduce my rating to 1 star after writing my full review because I realized I did not like anything about this book.
You know when you have to reach a word limit for an essay but you don’t have enough content so you keep adding fillers? Well, that is what this book felt like. This book was almost 700 pages long but only had enough content for like half that length. There were so much unnecessary fillers. In fact, this series in general, did not ...more
Heart-pounding battles? Jaw-dropping showdowns? Mind-boggling alliance shifts? Devastating losses? I know I expected all those things, and some more. Sadly, that was not the case with the last instalment of the Red Queen series.
“I will not be a red queen.”
The kingdom of Norta is divided, surrounded by vultures ready to devour her dying body. The forces of the coalition, the unlikely united front of Silver nobles, Red rebels and Newbloods are co ...more
I have finally finished the Red Queen series and... meh.
My thoughts on this book?
I knew from the start that I would not enjoy War Storm based on so many flaws I had with the series. I actually checked on both amazon and goodreads and I saw a lot of people not being happy with how it ended. And I can say that they were right. The ending was so disappointing, especially since we had to read four books to get where we are now in the finale.
This "War Storm" was nothing more than a light drizz ...more
[SHARP INHALE] I’M FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
i never have to think about this series again. i know that sounds harsh but these books have brought me so much unnecessary anger and frustration that it’s truly a relief to finally FINALLY be done with the series once and for all. i can finally put these books down and be DONE with the characters and the story and v*ctoria av*yard’s nasty ass personality
i actually didn’t completely hate this book (which was a very pleasant surprise!! i’m not go ...more
Red Queen was the book that fully immersed me into the YA book world. Taking me from an occasional reader to a full-on bookaholic. For that, it will always have a special place in my heart.
Let's start with saying this book is monstrous in size compared to its predecessors. But fortunately, it never feels excessive and it doesn't needlessly drag on. This series has been a tumultuous journey and this book is no exception.
She did it. Mare did exactly what I ...more
#teamMaven (yes, I realize he has dark hair in the book but I really view him as an older Malfoy in my head lol)
Just calling my prediction now -I've been saying this since day one: (view spoiler)[Maven dies saving Mare in a last minute act of redemption (though he's been in love with her whole time but he struggled internally against the evil person his mother was programming him to be), Mare ends up with Cal and as the people's hero (hide spoiler)]. To be honest, I don't want my prediction to b ...more
My black little ♥is broken 😢
So my dear friends we have come to the end of a very boring era.
Look out for spoilers ahead. Gonna tag it
I am gonna say that if you have hope for Maven then dont bother to read this book because it will only hurt you and leave you depressed.
The chapters from his view was the saddest. We got a close up look at the raw pain he felt.
So guys Victoria Aveyard led us to think that book 3 actually had a reason. She gave us hope that ...more
What the hell? Seriously? That's it? War Storm is the FINAL book in the Red Queen series and I must say I'm a bit disappointed and a little upset right now. I thought it started out strong, then about the midpoint, it all just fell short. I was really excited for this, I mean it's been one of my favorite series and this is what I get? I can't freaking believe this is how Victoria Aveyard chose to end it and it definitely didn't need to be such a long book but what are yo ...more
Sorry. That did't sound right. Let me try again.

welcome to the SHIT STORM review
I would like something extremely important to be known about this book; other than it’s utter existence is trash
i’d like you all to know that this book has abused literature by using the word “sneer” over 70+ times
[please take a moment to let that sink in]
the offending word has now made history for being the most overused word by Victoria Aveyard
i’d also like to give special recognition to each and every individual who has al ...more
CAL BETTER FIGURE HIS SHIT OUT.
"The guns will quiet, the smoke will clear, and the soldiers, Red and Silver both, will come home."
Hay muchas cosas negativas que les puedo decir de este libro. Pero si ya han llegado a este punto de la serie, creo que ya no tiene caso mencionar todas aquellas críticas que ya discutimos con anterioridad.
Aquí la gran verdad de este libro, la razón por la que le estoy dando las 5 ESTRELLAS, es porque Victoria Aveyard de alguna manera, logro hacer ...more
(Original rating) There's no reason to drag this into four books. There's probably going to be a book for every character as well....*Sigh* thank god for free ebooks.
*I rated this book two years ago. Before you comment that I shouldn't have rated it please understand I don't give a fuck. 🤷🏻♀ ...more
And how she couldn’t understand how so many people preferred Maven when Mare was “such a strong female character”. Not that she wasn’t the most annoying character that walked planet Earth. But I started this series so I guess I’ll see this book ne ...more
I'm glad that there is going to be a fourth book released because if there's more time for Maven redeeming himself, I'm satisfied. I am a hardcore Mareven shipper and I like him a lot more than Cal. (view spoiler)[After reading King's Cage and the part where Mare and Cal were talking about how perhaps a newblood healer could fix the part of Maven's mind that was damaged by Elara, I held onto my hope for Maven redeeming himself. Fingers crossed. (hide spoiler)]
Still Team Maven, Victoria, Cal ain' ...more
When this book first got published, and many of my goodreads friends rated it quite low, a part of me hoped that it wasn't as bad as they said. See, I LOVED Red Queen. And I knew that the author was a good writer because her battle scenes were amazingly written.
So this book for me was not just the end of a good series, but mainly a chance at redemption after the disappointments that were Glass Sword and King's Cage.
Unfortunately, this ended up being an even ...more
It wasn‘t good, but at the same time wasn‘t bad. It had its flaws, it was boring and too long, but as a conclusion to YA series was decent enough to feel satisfied.
I really wanted to love this book, but sadly were so many things I didn’t like or they simply didn’t make sense. A few characters, most of the time acted like different people, weren’t themselves and that really made this book feel like it mocked itself. I didn’t like the multiple POVs because it just put more unnecessary inform ...more
there’s no law that says i have to ignore all my responsibilities to read this on release date.... but i’m gonna do it anyway
I think why I’m over Aveyard and not just her but YA authors in general these days. It used to be if the story was great it was published, but it has slowly contracted over time to accepting people from the top universities, who are incidentally a lot of the time white brunettes or blondes, and they might be mediocre but they just really don’t move you on the page with any substantive feeling. YA authors can say no one like their books because they’re women or they’re political or blah blah blah ...more
