War Storm

Description from Goodreads:

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.


War Storm by Victoria Aveyard has 662 pages and was published in 2018 by Harper Teen.

One word to describe the final installment in Aveyard’s Red Queen series = verbose. This is a long book ya’ll. At certain points I would look to see how many pages I had left and wonder how quickly I could get through them.

War Storm is an okay book.

I personally did not like the ending. After such a long book, the ending seemed rushed and there were too many questions left unanswered. Perhaps there might be another book on the horizon. Frankly, I would welcome it instead of leaving the story as is.

Overall this was an okay read. However, I was disappointed in this book compared to the three previous books.

Rating:  3 Plot Monster Spiders
