Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. In it, bloggers highlight an upcoming release they are excited for. This week, I have a pick I’m surprised I haven’t posted about yet, because the previous book in the series just floored me with its ending. It is….
King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard
Expected Publication: February 7, 2017
Note: I am going to copy & paste the Goodreads summary below, but skip it if you haven’t yet read the previous 2 books in the series…unless you want SPOILERS!
In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?
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.
I am SO pumped for this next installment of the series!! I love the characters, and I love that Mare, as the main character, is relatable even if she isn’t always likable. I also LOVE Cal. Can’t wait to see what happens?
Have you read the Red Queen series? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?? Let me know below!
