This book carries on from where Red Queen left off. Mare has managed toe escape from Maven and she is know working to recruit soldiers to join the revolution.
I was left feeling really disappointed with this book. I really enjoyed Red Queen and I was looking forward to this book as I thought that it was going to be even better but I ended up not enjoying it as much. I’d reread Red Queen before starting this so the story was still fresh in my mind but I still found this to be quite confusing to start with. It took a really long time to get into as it was very slow at the start. A lot of new characters were introduced so it was difficult to keep up with who was who and the different powers that each character had. Mare’s character changed a lot in this book and not necessarily for the better. She became very cruel and harsh and I understand at times it may have been necessary but I didn’t particularly like this change in her character. This book still managed to have some shocking moment and there is a big cliffhanger at the end which makes me want to pick up the next book. I believe that there are going to be 4 books in this series and I really hope the next one is better as I think that this series has a lot of potential.
