Trapped in the King’s Cage

It took me long enough but I finally got around to reading the third book in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, King’s Cage. I know that some people aren’t keen on this series but I’ve really enjoyed it so far (reviews for Glass Sword and Cruel Crown) and was excited to dive back in. This is gunna be a short review as I don’t want to spoil anything for the previous books and therefore I can’t say much!!

I really enjoyed the character development that we got throughout this book, both for our main characters but also those who were introduced in Glass Sword, as well as learning a little more about the world as the characters stray further into it. I feel like the world building was done well and wasn’t just dumped on the reader.

For me, though, once reaching the end quarter of the book I was suddenly not enjoying it. In fact it was making me annoyed. I didn’t want to take my time with the writing anymore I just wanted to get it over with and finish the damn thing. The last 50 pages in particular were quite a drag for me. I’m still not entirely sure why this was, I would probably have to re-read the book to find out and I’m in no hurry to do that. But it was a surprise when I had been enjoying the rest of the book so much to suddenly really not wanting to be there. Fingers crossed that for the next, and last, book I enjoy it all the way through!

  1. Well that series is a love/hate/love/hate for me! So I am curious what you’ll think of the last one!

    1. Oooooh okay I did struggle with Glass Sword but I thought that was because I forced myself through it so quickly. Fingers crossed I enjoy it but it’ll be interesting if I’m the same as you!!!

    1. I really hope you enjoy book 3! If you’re the same as me then the ending was the slowest part of the book so hopefully you’ll speed through it! I’m looking forward to getting to War Storm “soon” (we both know it won’t be soon lol)
