The moment you read the first book in the series you feel like Victoria Aveyard just got you used to awesome writing, crazy plots and unexpected types of characters and shocking events and LIFE LESSON: SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTS! So don’t talk shit about my dear Victoria because she wrote (and still writes, come on baby with the 4th book) one of the best series ever! And I should really consider buying the coloring book.
King’s Cage actually worried me because I haven’t seen any hope for Mare. I could not imagine any means to escape him. He’s a controlled psycho. He doesn’t really want to do all the stuff he does but he can’t help it and he just needs to be saved from himself. I know Cal’s plan is to help his brother and he actually expected Mare to follow but…oh man…I would’ve shocked Cal a little for that (I’m more of an every-man-for-himself kind of person).
Mare is one of the strongest book characters I’ve met. I admire her from every point of view and I don’t know what I would do if I would be in her place. She’s strong, capable, smart, mature and young. Too young to deal with all of this but look at her still kicking ass and that should be empowering for every girl. She does what she has to do and she is doing it well.
If you have read the first 2 books this is your sign to get this book and read it as soon as possible! You can’t possibly live with the action from the second book so I’m telling you you must read this madness.
I kinda wished this one had more of a typical ending (which isn’t something that happens often) but I just love Mare so I thought that she deserves so much better than to be left again tho’ I tried to understand Cal too.
In the end, everybody stands for what they believe.
