War Storm (Red Queen #4) by Victoria Aveyard


War Storm is the final book in the Red Queen Series by Victoria Averyard This was another series that bookstagram introduced me too. I was exited to read this War Storm but a little sad as it is the last book.


Lines have been drawn, Mare has chosen the Scarlet Guard and Cal has chosen his crown. Mare known that to seek freedom for the her people the Red, no King must rule Norta, The Scarlet Guard and the people Montfort will do what every it takes to see that happen. Before they have to worry about Cal rule they have to stop Maven and the Lakelanders, who bring war, death and destruction to allow them to win at any and all cost. War is coming, will the Reds win against the Silver? or will the Silvers Kingdoms stand on the blood of the Reds? And what will happen to the Lighting Girl?


War Storm is a Monumental book coming in at 662 pages this book is full of action and drama that kept me hooked.

This book is split to the perspectives of Mare, Mal, Cal, Evangeline and Iris which keeps the book interesting. I was surprised that my opinion of Evangeline changes as I read more of the story from her side, at the beginning of these series I never thought I would warm to her but  by the end of War Storm I had.

Iris is an interesting character, she is introduced in Kings Cage, she is the second princess of the Lakelanders, with the ability to control water. After hearing so much about the Lakelanders in previous books it was satisfying to find out the simulators and differences between the two countries.

One of my favourite characters throughout the series has been Cal uncle Julian, we get to see more of him in this book. I feel like people always underestimated Julian but he is a lot more cunning and stronger with his ability than I originally thought.

I am not sure who I feel about the ending of the book, I neither like or dislike it, I understand why it ended the way it did but i was hoping for a little more.

I give this book 4.5 out of 5.

  1. I’ve just finished and reviewed War Storm and now looking at what everyone else thinks. 😀
    Here’s mine if you are interested | https://wp.me/p3AwwF-16i

    I loved this book, and the series so much! I definitely enjoyed Julian’s cunning too, it reminded me of political back channelling that occurs in TV shows like House of Cards. I think the ending was fitting for Mare’s character, and the state of the continent is realistic in terms of the aftermath or a war, I can understand why some fans want the happily-ever-after story though.

    1. Hi Richard,

      I really enjoyed your review. 😀

      I think I would of like a prologue set a more in the future, too see how everyone was coping and the world was rebuilding. As the way it ending was a ending that would be expected to a certain degree after a war, especially with Cal reaction to loss of kingdom and family.

      1. Thanks 😊

        Yes, hopefully the short stories that are apparently planned for next year will have one that involves Mare/Cal/Norta and how everything has turned out.
