    Latest Booktube Video ranks all the books I read in February While you probably know where this one stands based on my reviewcheck out the video to see the restThe Written Review Return once to the deadly and dazzling world The audacity of this tomfckery This stunning collection is not to be missed Whelp guess I'm in ueen Song note some of you may notice that this is the exact same review I posted for Aveyard's previous collection of novellas Look of she can copy paste and claim it's a new collection I can tooRight off the bat shouldn't the title be ueen's Song? Anyway it took me roughly half the book to figure out who this Coriane was turns out she's Prince Cal's mom who spends the entire book complaining about Elara Prince Maven's momOnce I figured out who was whoI knew that this was not going to end well Why? Cause we were already told the entire plot of this one in the original novelsLet me repeat that We already know what happened Sothis begs the uestion why write a novella? Because some stories are just meant to be told too good to pass up on a money grabAfter all these are the two women responsible Mare's greatest life dilemma does she go with good guy hottie Coriane's brat or bad guy hottie Elara's spawn Oh the decisionsAnyway Coriane wins the King's heart marries him is driven insane by Elara and then kills herself What A ShockerAs an aside I can't be the only one seeing the flaw with the way the royalty choose their spouses They set up a huge tournament and whichever minor nobility manages to kill their competition gets to marry the king So the goal is to find the strongest cruelest and bloodthirstiest woman then hand her the crown Really? And then everyone gets so shocked when someone murders the king Wake up people Steel Scars ditto already published in cruel crown Here's my review from there Right off the redacted Farley doesn't get redacted or redacted by steel So I don't know where this title thought it was redactedIn fact so much of this novella was redacted that I literally wanted to redacted redacted redacted up its redacted Anyway this one follows Captain Farley the only captain who managed to touch up her bright red hair on the battle field to keep away those pesky roots Truly an inspirationFor such an exciting sounding plot recruiting black market traders smugglers and extremists Victoria Aveyard sure knows how to tone it down The most intriguing mystery was the accent Farley has this over the top posh British accent throughout the audiobooks and yet literally everyone else has a very standard American accents Could she be a spy?Even if she's from a different area of the country somewhere where they mysteriously have British accents you'd think there would be at least one person with a similar accent Is she a redcoat traitor?Anyway after finishing this novel I'm disappointed to note that there are no new developments on Accent Watch Farley Edition but I'm fully confident that Aveyard is planning a grand reveal in War Storm that will settle all our anxietiesAudiobook CommentsI just looked it up and this one was read by Andi Arndt Jayne Entwistle and Amanda Dolan I literally couldn't tell that there was than one reader Someone wasted a lot of money on that audioYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading In Addition may I voice my disgust that the sweet ombré effect which originally drew me to these novels has been completely ruined? Absolute travesty

    “The snow made the choice not meNot the partyAnd certainly not the lure of a young man with bronze eyes and a broken throne” Broken Throne is a collection of novellas that take place before during and after the events of the Red ueen series It features two previously published novellas ueen Song and Steel Scars and three brand new novellas and contains a few extras such as maps flags and journal entries written by Julian ueen Song ueen Song is the first previously published novella and takes place before the events of the Red ueen series and follows Cal’s mother Coriane The novella shows how she went from being a girl of a lowly High House to the ueen of Norta “She was happy yes in her own way as best as she knew But there’s a difference between a single candle in darkness and a sunrise” This novella is one of my favourites mostly because I loved Coriane’s character I felt such a deep level of sympathy for her because she was clearly unhappy and depressed Her romance with Tibe was heartwarming and seeing characters such as Julian and Sara and even Cal himself through Coriane’s eyes was also such a lovely touch It makes it that much heartbreaking when Cal reads her diary in War Storm But no matter how many times I read this novella it always leaves me feeling so sad and angry Angry at Elara because she destroyed Coriane’s life Sad for Coriane because she didn’t get to see her son grow up and died too early Coriane honestly deserved She deserved so much Steel Scars Steel Scars is the second previously published novella and takes place before the events of Red ueen It follows Farley’s missions in the Scarlet Guard that lead her to meeting Shade and then Mare “Are you with us Shade Barrow?”“I’m with you Diana”“Then we will rise”His voice joins mine“Red as the dawn” What I like about this novella is that we get to see a in depth look into Farley’s character that we don’t really get from seeing her through Mare’s eyes at least not in the first book But what’s also a really nice touch is that we get some well needed interactions in the early stages of the relationship between Shade and Farley and they just warmed my heart This coupled with Bright Shadow a novella in the Glass Sword collector’s edition are all we have of Farley and Shade It’s not enough These two deserved so much They deserved better World Behind World Behind is the first new novella in the collection and takes place during the events of War Storm It follows Ashe the captain of a keelboat and Lyrisa the niece of Prince Bracken and a Silver princess as they cross paths “Nowhere is uiet not in the world ahead or the world behind” I think this novella was really interesting in that it provided us with two perspectives from characters who aren’t involved with the main events of the series and who have no desire to be a part of the war “I try to stay out of things try to keep my focus on what’s right in front of me I don’t bother with great and terrible people of the world I only know what I must of them to stay alive stay ahead and nothing ” Ashe was an interesting character because I enjoyed seeing him develop in the short amount of time we get to know him His interactions with Lyrisa were my favourite and how his feelings for her slowly changed was also nice to see play out “I’m on a Red Riverman’s keelboat outnumbered and hated by everyone around me with nowhere to go but forward a dead girl on the run” Lyrisa was also an interesting character and reminded me a little of Evangeline in that what you see is completely different than what is happening under the surface I enjoyed her character growth throughout the novella in understanding that there are two kinds of silvers the good and the bad and figuring out which one of them she is going to be The conclusion to this novella was also a nice touch and overall I really enjoyed it Iron Heart Iron Heart takes place after War Storm and follows Evangeline and Elane as they struggle to let go of their past and adjust to life in Monfort “For now I can rest and heal my iron heart” This novella was amazing Evangeline is one of my favourite characters and has been ever since I read from her perspective in King’s Cage for the first time And after War Storm I wanted of a conclusion for her character arc and this novella delivered it in abundance “Princess Evangeline Lady of House Samos Daughter of Volo and Larentia I am none of those things any Not after today I should be glad – I should be relieved to be rid of the name and the life my parents gave me And parts of me are But the rest of me can’t help but be reminded of what I traded away to live as who I am now What I betrayed What I killed What I lost forever” What I like most about Evangeline is that she’s had such character growth throughout the series Who she is at the start is almost unrecognisable to how she is now in Broken Throne But even then she still has growing to do and it’s touching watching her go through it Evangeline is proof that even if you are brought up a certain way taught to want something that you can still change and grow and be a different person And she really showed me that in this novella that she’s changed and can change even And I’m so happy with how her character arc ended “I know you like to pretend to be made of iron Even in your heart my love I know better and you don’t have to hide with me” We also get to read from the perspective of Elane who we’ve never heard from before Reading from her perspective was just as enjoyable as I’d assumed it was going to be Seeing Evangeline through Elane’s eyes is really interesting because we get to see her vulnerabilities and what really drives her as a character And I think the love between Elane and Evangeline is so pure and it really shows through Elane’s determination to follow Evangeline and support her through anything and everything Fire Light Fire Light takes place two months after the events of War Storm and is told from the perspectives of both Mare and Cal as they return to Monfort after their time apart “We were right to come here To rebuild ourselves to figure out who we are now in spite of our missing pieces” This novella was everything I needed and Although I was satisfied with the ending of War Storm I knew I wanted regarding Mare and Cal’s relationship and this novella delivered it in abundance I’ve literally been shipping Mare and Cal since Glass Sword and I was so nervous reading this novella because I wanted only the best for them I’m so so happy with how their storyline was concluded and I’m also not ashamed to say that I cried “I am almost nineteen I have nothing but time To choose to heal To live” Mare has gone through so much and she’s grown as a result of it which is why she is one of my favourite characters of all time At the end of War Storm she really made me proud because she was realistic and she displayed maturity beyond her age Even in this novella the way she handled things was really good and I’m so glad her and Cal found their way back to each other but also that they’re going to take things slowly “Even without her lightning Mare Barrow still manages to strike me through” Cal has also gone through changes of his own after abdicating his throne and I’m so proud of him as well Cal like Evangeline is proof that although you may have grown up being taught one thing you can change yourself and do another I’m a firm believer that both Mare and Coriane had an effect on Cal and is the reason he made those changes and I think his mother would have been so proud with how he turned out to be in the end Fare Well Fare Well is the last novella in this collection and is told from the perspective of Maven as he is confronted by Cal one last time and also Cal himself as he faces the memory of Maven after his death “It would hurt him deeply wound him forever if I let him glimpse what little is left of me That I’m still here in some forgotten corner just waiting to be found I could ruin him with one glance one echo of the brother he remembers Or I could free him of me Make the choice for him Give my brother one last proof of the love I can no longer feel even if he never knows it” This novella really surprised me because I thought I knew all I needed to know about Maven but no I think at least in my opinion that Maven’s decision not to show Cal that there was still a part of him left in order to prevent Cal from struggling with his memory after his death was really touching It showed that although his mind had been warped and twisted beyond repair there was still a part of him that cared enough to do this last thing for his brother “But like always I could not let him go Even now I cannot let Maven go I never will” Cal’s final goodbye when he visited Maven’s grave was really sad Cal has such a big heart and I don’t think I realised just how much Maven meant to him until the end of this novella Cal said he couldn’t ever let Maven go and I think that’s okay I really do I’m so proud of how far he’s come in that’s he’s mature enough to know that it’s okay if he holds on instead of letting go “History will remember you mark my words Make sure it remembers you well” This collection also came with some extra scenes and journal entries and maps all of which were such a nice addition to the series My favourite was the entry right at the end after the last novella which basically summarised how the next few decades unravelled It was so unexpected but such a nice touch to wrap up the series “We destroy We rebuild We destroy again It is the constant of our kind We are all a god’s chosen and we are all a god’s cursed” Overall War Storm left some loose threads left untied and Broken Throne tied them all together and did so much It’s so bittersweet that this is the last instalment in the Red ueen series but it was such a perfect last instalment I’ve been with this series since the very beginning in 2015 when the first book came out and I’ve been following it ever since I feel like I’ve really grown with the series and grown alongside Mare as well If I could go back and read the series all over again for the first time I’d do it in a heartbeat Thank you Victoria Aveyard for writing this and for taking my emotions on such a rollercoaster It’s an experience that I will never forget Thank you thank you thank you

    Meanwhile in an alternative universe“ Keep it down would you? We're trying to focus here” sitting with Maven upstairs Mare Barrow shouts over the deafening ear splitting sound of cheering—not that anyone listens of course Downstairs her brother Shade is Jumping around the room and fist bumping his noisy audience with uite the ceremony while his losing sparring partner Ptolemus Samos stands with a frownEvangeline patronisingly pats her big brother on the cheek “Next round remember that he doesn't just stand there for you to pierce his heart with a blade huh?” Ptolemus sneers batting her hand away and calls to Shade “Shake a leg Barrow I'm getting you this time”Shade reluctantly puts Farley who he'd been kissing beyond the inconvenient lines of propriety down and looks to the smirking Cal standing beside them and all too happy about the fight's results “Is that a challenge? Ooh I feel like that's a challenge” he Jumps back in the sparring area with a grin rubbing his hands together “Bring it on Little Tolly”Ptolemus points a finger at him as he slowly advances “You'll pay for that bro”Unfazed and too sure of himself Shade pretends to be in thought “Just a uestion before we start; where would you like me to put the dagger when I beat you—the neck again or somewhere creative like hmmm” he pauses for dramatic effect “Your Silver ass? Considering your hair is silver too I'm just sayingis your ass silver? Do I even wanna know?”At that Eve bursts out laughing and covers her mouth trying to hide it—for the sake of her brother's wounded pride—and of course failing while Farley looking disgusted says to a fuming Tolly her mouth crinkling in distaste “Please don't answer that I do not need to know that detail”Ptolemus smiles cruelly pieces of metal floating all around him twisting and sharpening into deadly weapons that make you pray only for a uick death “Say your goodbyes Barrow”As the two start circling each other Kilorn pulls out a bag of chips pops some into his mouth and focuses on the delicious crunching completely mindless of the silence ruling over the room as everyone stares at that small inconspicuous vulnerable package of eatable gems in his hands That is until a steel blade whips through the air and hovers dangerously close to his throat His eyes widening he uickly stops chewing“Warren be a good boy and give that to me before I open your neck from ear to ear” Evangeline says sweetly walking up to himKilron slowly extends his hand and she snatches the bag plopping down next to Farley She takes a few chips as Eve offers her the bag “At it girl Seems like you Silvers aren't useless after all Who knew?”“You didn't want the ones in my mouth?” Kilorn asks and yelps as one of Eve's metal blades appears out of nowhere pricking his butt cheek“Shut that pretty mouth of yours Kilorn” Cameron says affectionately from his side giving Evangeline a thumbs up as she passes the bag around Cal fills both his large hands revealing an adoration for chips no one knew existed What do you know perhaps it was this love of chips that beat his love of the crownKilorn gives a double take at Cameron's words “Hey You should be taking my side Why didn't you do your thing you know and Silence her?”Cameronn looks offended “And let you eat the chips all by yourself? No thanks”“Ouch my pride is wounded” Kilorn says grimly putting his hand on his heart in mock pain“Lick it it'll get better Now hush the fight is interesting than your ego”Just then Tolly rapid fires sharp pieces of metal at Shade anticipating his spee But there's nothing as uick as Shade who Jumps appearing two feet to the left Ptolemus redirects them with his swift reflexes but Shade again disappears into thin air before they get anywhere close to his skin Frustrated Ptolemus curses “Stop jumping around like a scared little rabbit Barrow and fight”Dodging a spear barreling his way Shade smiles “As you wish” and disappears Tolly uickly turns his bracelet into a blade to defend his back expecting Barrow's appearance behind him What he doesn't see coming is a sharp wooden dagger pricking him somewhere uncomfortably and preciously south with Shade standing right in front of him looking apologetic with a sheepish smile “Oops Sorry bro had to impress the ladies”There's a gasp then maniacal screaming starts to fill the room and leak out the doors and all the way up the stairs with none other than Kilorn acting as cheerleader The chanting “Barrow Barrow Barrow” hits the walls and windows and my precious eardrums trying to break through I am definitely going to have a headache after all this childish fanfareStanding unnaturally still Ptolemus gives a nervous laugh and raises his hands in surrender “Nice one now justbe careful with thatI use it to impress the ladies too”Shade pulls back his magnetron proof dagger making Tolly sigh in relief and pats him on the back “Fair enough We wouldn't wanna lose such a blessing now would we?” he says grinningPtolemus gives a good natured laugh “I give up man you're unbeatable I do not want to face you on a battle field” Shade's smile widens “Why wou—”“My colours” Tolly shoutsThe screaming that leaked upstairs seems to have done its job uite flawlessly because a fireball shoots out of the door upstairs which Cal swiftly extinguishes cutting Shade off and causing everyone to jump up in alarm—well everyone but Evangeline “What the hell is Mare doing to Maven up there??” shouts KilornEvangeline smirks “The dirty” and pops some chips into her arrogant mouth Continue reading some with Mare Maven Cal and the rest HERE It's shortMy pre read pre review a parody of The Greatest Show by Hugh Jackman view spoilerLadies and gentsThis is the moment you've waited forBeen searchin' for thisSince War Storm left you on the floorDeep in your bonesThere's an ache for Maven you can't ignoreBleeding your heart stealin' your mindAnd all that was real is left behindSo tell me do you wanna go??Where it's Silverbloods who're ownin' the lightsWhere Red runaways are runnin' the nightsImpossible comes true Reds takin' over youOh this is the Red ueen worldIt's everything you ever wantIt's everything you ever needAnd it's here right in front of youThis is what you wanna readIt's everything you ever wantIt's everything you ever needAnd it's here right in front o' youThis is what you wanna readA parody by Mary S R of The Greatest Show by Hugh Jackman hide spoiler

    I just want to start off and say how happy I was to come back into this world I was absolutely giddy and went into my Target to get my copy at like 7 am before I went into work The poor worker had to dig through several boxes of new releases to find it Broken Throne is a compilation of stories set in the Red ueen world There are multiple novellas some previously released and some new as well as maps journal entries and the part that I was most excited about stories from post War Storm This is what I'll be reviewing hereBroken Throne picks up a few months following the ending of War Storm Norta with Cal's leadership is working on setting up a democracy and bringing red bloods and silvers together This involves getting silver allies to renounce their place on the throne in favor of democracy This process is shown through Evangeline and Elane's eyes The first chapters from this section are purely from their perspectivesAs mentioned in War Storm Evangeline and Elane are now living in the democratic plains and are trying to figure out what to do with their lives now that Evangeline and Tolly are no longer headed to the throne As you can imagine while Evangeline is content with her choice to renounce she is struggling to figure out what to do with her life Eventually Cal comes into the picture as he works with Tolly and Evangeline which then leads to Mare and her family joining the groupSimilarly Mare is struggling and trying to work through her mental health following the ending events of War Storm Her family after spending time in a remote area heads back toward civilization as important policy talks are taking place This is where Cal and Mare are reunited and all the feelings I have toward this couple hit me suare in the chest I seriously love Cal and Mare together so much I also love Evangeline and Elane but the CalMare ship is one of my favorite from any series While I was fine ok a little sad but understanding with how things ended in War Storm I was happy to get even resolution from Broken Throne If you are looking for a happier ending then you'll be looking in the right place My only wish is that selfishly I wanted even I could have used less of the journalsnovellas from other characters' perspectives and of CalMareEvangeline That's who I love and that's who I wanted to follow along There's also one chapter from Maven but it is fairly short and based in the past It's fine and I'm sure Maven lovers will be happy for it but since I'm not in that camp I felt just fine with it From everything Victoria has said on Twitter this will be the last Red ueen item for a long time and that's fine Sad but fine I'm happy to have gotten closure from our favorite characters I'll never stop hoping to get stories with my fav characters but I can be very happy with everything that we've gottenPS The Target edition has an annotated chapter featuring the dancing lesson scenes between Cal and Mare I really liked this and was interesting to see some insight into Victoria's thoughts in writing the scene and the little things she dropped in there Some of my favorite uotes some mild spoilers Mare went up there once trying to outrun something I understand the urge Now she's somewhere farther north still recuperating Still mourning Still running even if she's finally standing stillPrincess Evangeline Lady of House Samos Daughter of Volo and Lorentia I am none of those things any Not after today I should be glad I should be relieve to be rid of the name and the life my parents gave me And parts of me are But the rest can't help but be reminded of what I traded away to live as who I am now What I betrayed What I killed What I lost foreverOf course it is Cal replies his tone light It's an exclusive club you're joining I have to be on hand to welcome you in the AbdicatorsMy lip curls All the same I take Cal's arm pulling him into a stiff but uick embrace Please don't start calling us that I growlI missed you I'm glad I went away It was a mistake to go It was the right thing to do I'm sorry I killed him I'd do it again if I had to I need you now I want time I love you I love youIf not for the circumstances I would laugh at the thought of Gisa scolding Mare into dressing appropriately and forcing her into the jacket I blush at the thought of getting her out of it Focus my mind screams and heat flares around meCould you not? Julian mutters through clenched teeth The corner of his mouth twitches betraying amusementWhy do you keep nudging now? I drop my voice Evangeline does no such thing There aren't many who deserve to be happy I'm certainly not one of them but here I am I think you might deserve it BarrowDid you wait Cal?His fingers weave through mine as he grins I'm still waiting Here 👏 for 👏 EvangelineElane 👏 and 👏 MareCal 👏Miss me with that Maven obsession 👊
