I had been really excited about this book after finishing King’s Cage but then I forgot about it. I hadn’t bought it and I don’t know, I just forgot which is weird as Red Queen had been one of my favorite read. I just kind of lost my interest for this series over the year. It is kind of sad. But I still enjoyed reading War Storm and I think the ending was great.
I still don’t like Mare or Cal. I actually hate them and I was not rooting for them at all, I kind of did not care about their problems. But I really enjoyed reading about Iris and Maven, I wish there were more chapters about them. I needed to know more about Iris Cygnet who is an amazing character in my opinion. Maven is just a little piece of shit but I can’t help but love him. Farley is a fierce and badass woman and I liked her. The other characters I did not really cared about.
I got confused a lot of time reading this book because I felt like there was a lot of coming and going everywhere and I did not always get why they were leaving or where they were going. It was confusing for me as it had been a while since I had read a Red Queen novel and I did not really remember the name of the different places. But this is just my own fault, I should have read a recap or something before starting War Storm.
The pace was too slow in my opinion; there were many pages where sometimes nothing was happening at all. And then all the action happened in the last pages. I have to say, the final scene between Mare and Maven.. oh my. It was intense!
I cannot really elaborate on the plot without revealing too much information on the series thought. I would recommend to read this if you have been a fan of the series or if you enjoyed the first books, it is still worth it!
Despite the fact that I did not enjoy it that much, I am really sad this series is over because I have been reading it for years now. I remember reading Red Queen while I was supposed to be studying for my exams at university. It is one of the first YA book I read back in the days when I started watching Booktube and writing reviews so it means a lot to me.
