Review: War Storm by Victoria Aveyard

Hello there!

This is super late but here is my spoiler-free review of War Storm by Victoria Aveyard. If you are unaware this is the last book in the Red Queen series, that being said there will be some spoilers from the other books in the series. If you want to check out my reviews for those books you can check them out here —> Red Queen, Glass Sword, King’s Cage. Now on to the review.

Okay, I will start off by saying that this book took me a little over two months to read. I had a hard time really getting into the book because I felt that the first 200 pages there was not much happening and I just wanted to get to the real action. Also, I wanted to see what Maven was up to because he is such a character it is never a dull moment when he is around. That said once it started to pick up I did start to enjoy it more.

One of the things that I liked was that for two or three chapters we got to read from Maven’s point of view and I feel that for those few chapters it added so much to his character because we got to finally see a some of his inner thoughts. I also really liked some of Evangeline’s chapters because we just got to learn more about her also her sass IMG_2769is just everything! Now Mare, so if you have read King’s Cage you know how it ended and the way that Mare handles the situation was so annoying! I mean Cal didn’t handle the situation any better but those two I just couldn’t stand how they were dealing with it especially Mare.

Let’s talk about the ending. I really enjoyed the ending mainly because it was not what I thought or hoped would happen. There was a certain thing that I thought will not happen and it actually did.  I also think that it was a bold move that Aveyard let that happen. That is very vague but I don’t want to spoil it for you. What I also loved about this book as well as the entire series is how it touches on some topics that are very relevant today in a unique way. I will touch on this more in my spoiler review.

All in all, I did enjoy this book but not as much as I loved King’s Cage. I did not walk away from this book thinking “wow that was amazing” but I was thinking about it past reading the last page, that was mainly due to the ending. I will say that I feel that it could have been shorter because some parts did drag. I gave War Storm 3.75 stars out of 5. Let me know in the comments what your thoughts are on the series with no spoilers of course. Also, I will be posting my spoiler review later this week so keep an eye out for that.

 

Until next time book nerds,

Review: Lifeline by Abbey Lee Nash

Hello there!

I want to start off this review by thanking Tiny Fox Press for sending me Lifeline for review. This review will be spoiler free so read on with no fear.

I went into this book thinking that I wouldn’t get much out of this book mainly because I am more of a fantasy reader than a contemporary reader. But, I ended up really enjoying this book. Lifeline is the story of Eli who is a High School lacrosse team captain. One night at a party Eli ends up overdosing and is then sent to a teen rehab facility. This follows his journey to start his recovery. Continue reading “Review: Lifeline by Abbey Lee Nash”
