I was hesitant to pick up this book after Glass Sword, because the pacing of that book was quite slow. The first half of King's Cage suffers a similar fate, but the action ramps up toward the ends as Aveyard sets up the final battle between Mare and Maven to come in book four.

I still love Maven, and i'm so happy he's in this book, even though he has a weird obsession over Mare. But its all good.

*Contains some spoilers*
King’s Cage is another amazing installment to the Red Queen series. Mare Barrow is trapped and powerless in prison at King Mavens feet. Most of the book is about Mare and her life in prison, but the book turns out to be really interesting and great. The ending was kind of a disappointment but I hope Aveyard fixes everything in the last book coming out soon. King's Cage is a long book, but the story is a bit short. I personally still like Maven, even though he's a villain, I hope he has a satisfying ending when the whole series ends. I think Mare might end up alone at the end of the Red Queen series in the last book, because Cal just walks away and Maven has no chance at all after all he did. Maybe in this series, the girl ends up alone. Anyone who hasn't started King's Cage yet should definitely be ready for the action. 5/5 stars

What a beautiful third book to the Red Queen series/trilogy. In my opinion, it is way better than the second and almost a bit better than the first. Mare Barrow, in struggling to find who she is and what she will face, undergoes massive realizations after being captured by Maven, the boy she thought she loved. Meanwhile, a dysfunctional yet co-ordinated group of rebellious civilians plan to topple the tall infrastructure of the "royalty" aka Silvers. With loyalties and life at stake, the protagonists must fight their battles on the field and in themselves. A good question posed indirectly by Cameron is: "what is the line to cross over to fully become a 'monster?'" Perhaps, a lack of humanity.

This was such a long installment and we have yet another to read to get to the end of the series. Very disappointing.

I enjoyed the story for the most part, but way too much time was spent dwelling on Mare as a prisoner.

Interesting choice to switch to the multiple POV. Cameron still does not seem like she was worth the attention. Would have been more interesting to use a newblood we are more familiar with or Farley.

And what has happened to Jon, the seer? Has Aveyard forgotten him? He was like a footnote in this installment. Perhaps he will come back with a vengeance in the fourth book.

The start is quite slow but gosh it gets SO GOOD!!!

ACTION, ROMANCE, BETRAYAL, this book has it all (just like the other 2 but still)

The end has left me wanting more but we'll have to wait until 2018 :(

This 3rd book is great. It moves fairly slowly though because she spends so much time in her boring cell, not even trying to escape. But after you get past that point the book is packed with deception, lies, juicy secrets and plot twists. Many plot twists indeed I must say. Without spoiling too much let's just say that people are trying to get Maven off the throne so yeahhh. Definitely looking forward to preorder the next book.

This was overall a good addition to the series, but some plot points seemed a little repetitive. It kind of felt like I had read it before. I did find the dynamic between Iris and Mare very interesting, and hope there's more of that in the future.
