The Red Queen Series by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I feel really excited about all the excellent YA fantasy novels that have come out in the past year or two. I also feel like a broken record, because I’ve been on a mission to read as many of them as possible the past few months. That puts me in a bind, because what can I say about this novel that won’t sound like something I’ve already said about some of the others?

I think what it boils down to is that this book deserves all 5 stars, and I’m impatient to get my hands on book 2. Also, I am jealous that today’s teens have so many great stories at their fingertips, because all I remember reading by the time I reached high school was classics and adult novels.

Queen Song (Red Queen, #0.1)Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was fascinating and heartwrenching. If you want to know more about Cal’s mom, read this novella.

I read it after the Red Queen, which seemed appropriate, even though it is numbered 0.1 I think it helped to already have an understanding of the world and characters before I read this novella, so if you’re not sure, wait and read it after The Red Queen, which is book 1.

Steel Scars (Red Queen, #0.2)Steel Scars by Victoria Aveyard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It took me some time to warm up to this novella, but in the end, I really enjoyed it and was glad I took the time to read it. This one is about Farley, the face of the rebellion.

I also recommend waiting to read this novella until after you have read The Red Queen, despite the numbering. Chronologically, the story starts before Book 1, but I believe you’ll want to understand the world before you dive into this.
