✦ Maica ✦ (maicacruz) | 712 comments 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 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 demolishing 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.

Natalie | 9 comments I'm not sure why, but Evangeline kind of reminds me of Katniss from Hunger Games. It's weird, but she just does. Haha, anyone else think so?

I can see the similarities, but I think I prefer Evangeline! (A bit controversial, but Evangeline is just so incredible!)

Ryn Lewis | 942 comments So it's taken me this long to report in because seriously, this book is so incredibly boring that I keep falling asleep.

To Chapter 9

So we appear to have three perspectives, which I had an issue with in the last book because it came out of nowhere but hopefully it will work better in this story. Evangeline and Iris both seem to be relatively interesting characters, and (as much as I like anyone) I can't help liking Evangeline. She's a jerk but at least she's honest about it. Still not really sure why Mare is unable to grasp the concept of (view spoiler)

The perspective thing seems to be working well. It's relatively consistent. My biggest problem with it honestly is that I'm having trouble keeping everyone straight. The voices aren't different enough for me to realize immediately whose head I'm in unless I go back and check the chapter titles. Plus I'm having a really hard time keeping straight who is on whose side and who is fighting for what and who has doublecrossed whom. Usually I don't mind war in a fantasy, but this book just feels like battle and strategy. I'm vaguely interested in who will win, and obviously (view spoiler)

Boredom, boredom and more boredom. This story just winds and twists around itself in a morass of confusion. No one knows what to do so we all sit around befuddled for pages and pages of pointless, redundant conversation.

(view spoiler)

I wish this story would actually DO something. Six hundred pages of waffling. It reminds me of the first Star Trek movie where we watch 90 minutes of the ship flying in slo-mo through space and then have about 7 minutes of actual story at the end.

Seriously, Aveyard? Over six hundred pages and you can't actually wrap this story up but leave it hanging? I'm so much more than annoyed right now.

But mostly just glad this slog is over. Sloppy perspective again which serves no purpose. The battle was interesting. The whole thing between Mare and Cal is just (view spoiler)

So I enjoyed this final installment of the Red Queen series. I liked how the MCs ended up, and am hopeful that Cal and the lightning girl will find themselves again. The beginning was a little slow for me, with a lot of war going on - but then again, the book is called "War Storm" so what was I expecting?!?

Same Danique!! I didn't realize there was a 4th book until very recently, and I read the 3rd in June, so it's taking me a while to remember what is happening.

I get that! I probably just need to get used to it, it's just that I want to see Mare and Cal together hihi. I just didn't remember Iris, but reading from her was quite interesting! I think she's going to be one to watch ;)
I love Kilorn too! I really thought they would get together in the first few books :) Although I still like Cal a lot. I somehow also feel like Cal will die or something and she will actually end up with Kilorn..
Wow that's such a good observation!! I love the geography geekiness haha :)
