I discovered Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen when I was looking for a new book to read. It has been recommended to me by Goodreads and a local bookstore. I decided to pick up Red Queen and finished it within a day of reading. Glass Sword immediately followed, and it was finished sooner than expected. I enjoyed seeing the Silvers back in King's Cage.
War Storm, however, is a disappointment to me. It dragged on for more than half the book, and the supposed war storm that would define the Reds and Silvers came out as a mere drizzle. All those build-ups, only to have the Lakelanders surrender. Convenient. And Maven's death? Cheaply done. The ending? Lacking.
Needless to say, I finished the series because of the characters. I loved to hate House Samos from the beginning, but starting Glass Sword, but love Evangeline and Ptolemus now.
