The exciting final of the Red Queen series.
Both Maven and Cal have allied with powerful groups or territories to dispute Norta’s crown. Maven has ended the war against the Lakelands by marrying Iris Cygnet, so he has the Lakelanders as allies. Each group or territory has its own interests. There could be any treason anytime.
Although Mare’s heart is broken, she keeps fighting for freedom and equality for the Reds. She wants no more kings. She has Montfort’s example of a different government and complete equality. Along with the Scarlet Guard and Montfort, she’ll help Cal, but none of them wants him to be king.
Both Mare and Cal miss each other but they keep their painful decision. They must be prepared for achieving their goals even if that means to be separated. Fortunately, neither one is alone.
Ok. I think this book is awesome and the end could allow Victoria Aveyard to write more books. If there will be more books, I’ll read them.
I enjoyed imagining all the exciting moments and all the different territories.
I loved all the intrigue. The majority of the characters are very ambitious. They are capable of everything to achieve their goals. For example, Evangeline Samos wants to be free and she’ll do many things to get her freedom.
Every passing moment there are more Silvers thinking that the Reds shouldn’t be treated as slaves and there are more Reds fighting for their rights. As Julian says, historically speaking, wars are won by the opressed. Besides, in this war there are a few opressed who have abbilities like Mare and who are more powerful than the oppresors. Julian considers them the next step in evolution.
Finally, I want to say that Cal dissapointed me.
This is one of my favorite series. I recommend it a lot.
I’m finishing with this phrase: “We can destroy, but we can also rebuild.”
