Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers can feature anticipated upcoming book releases.
I would like to read King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard, like, today.
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’ve read the first two books in this series…although, it has been quite a while since I’ve picked them up. I don’t particularly remember every event so I would have to do some re-reading before getting to this next installment. From what I do remember of Aveyard’s Red Queen series, I know I enjoyed Red Queen and Glass Sword. The latter ended in a cliffhanger which I am eager to see play out. Only have one week to go!
