BOOK REVIEW: King’s Cage

King’s Cage- Victoria Aveyard

There’s a lot to be said about the little lightning girl. But here I am almost halfway through King’s Cage and all Aveyard has given me is Mare.

“people like us,” he scoffs. “We lie to everyone. Especially ourselves.”

It’s page 202, Maven makes a pretty compelling statement, and Mare reacts the same way she has acted since I’ve picked up the book. No surprise. No trace of the fierce and fiery nature we’ve gotten to know and appreciate. Hopefully her will to not only survive- but save, returns.

Interestingly enough Aveyard offers us different perspectives in all the different situations, reminding us, as the readers, that there is so much more to this story than just Mare Burrow’s. And although this book felt like all the scenes were dragged out a bit too much- when it came to the ending it was everything but.

Every line in the book led up to this, everything appears to make a bit more sense. After a bloody fight, who’s to predict what Aveyard want to have happen.
