BOOK REVIEW + FAN ART: Red Queen, Glass Sword & Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard

Attachment-1Hello everybody! It’s been awhile since I last posted a book review. I usually post separate book reviews but since this is a series and I really loved it, I decided to make a special post for it. I didn’t only reviewed the books but I also drew a simple fan art just to express my feels about the book. It was really great! I wasn’t disappointed. If you’re into young adult, fantasy, fiction and a bit of dystopian, then I think these books are for you. I recommend them to ages 13 & up. Hope you guys find my reviews helpful. Enjoy!

BOOK REVIEWS:

Red Queen (Red Queen, #1)Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard is the first novel in the Red Queen series. It follows Mare Molly Barrow’s adventure towards their world divided by blood: red & silver. She’s from the red blood — the slaves, the workers and the soldiers; except something about her is different. A twist of fate leads her to the palace and there, she discovers one thing about herself. The thing she thought only silvers can do.

Fear of curiosity from the people drove the king to force Mare live in the life of a lost silver princess and betroths her to one of his sons. As Mare discovers more about the silver world, she gets to be a part of a rebellion — the Scarlet Guard. Every decision has its own way of molding the future. Anyone can betray anyone. Mare’s actions put many lives at stake and her heart against herself.

I give the book 4.5 stars! The book was amazing; I loved it till the end. The plot twists were unexpected which makes the book better. The characters are likeable and the concept was fantastic. All in one amazing it is!

I gave it 4.5 because I think something’s missing in the book. I don’t know what but it didn’t satisfy me well enough to give it a five. Despite the rating decision, I cannot deny that this book’s one of the best! Victoria Aveyard did a wonderful job writing the book.

Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard is the sequel to Red Queen. It follows Mare Barrow, turning against Silvers, who has turned her into a weapon that they tried to control. Pursued by Maven, the prince who betrayed her, she sets out to find others like her and do what’s best to bring Queen Elara and Maven down. Lies were told, secrets unfolded. Mare finds herself becoming the kind of monster she’s trying to defeat.

I give the book 5 out of 5 stars. Literally one of the best sequels I’ve read! The scenes were intense, very well written. Plot twists were unpredictable!! I had a serious emotional roller coaster ride which makes it unforgettable. I can remember myself crying while reading the last 5 chapters. It was amazing! Words can’t explain how beautiful this book was written. It’s so hard to process the scenes. The middle part was amazing, I found myself smiling while reading that part.

Anyway, the cover’s great, description’s catchy and the book content’s awesome. All in one amazing! Highly recommend.

I CAN’T WAIT FOR KING’S CAGE AND THE FOURTH BOOK TO COME OUT LIKE ASHDJWKXOSHUSSHUEHS PLEASE PUBLISH IT NOW.

Queen Song (Red Queen, #0.1)Queen Song by Victoria Aveyard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Queen Song is a Red Queen novella by Victoria Aveyard. It follows Cal’s mother & reveals her untold story.

The novella was fantastic! I give it 4 out of 5 stars. There’s not much to say but over all, the novella’s worth the read.

FAN ART:

 

This is just a simple fan art. I could do a tutorial if you like – just comment below & I’ll see what I can do. Anyway, this fan art represents the first book. I’m planning to make one for Glass Sword but I’m still planning the format and what elements I should use.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

#1 New York Times Bestseller

 

There is darkness sweeping across the stars.

Most know her as the Bloody Baroness, the captain of a fearsome glass starship called The Marauder. Androma and her crew strike terror in the hearts of those who cross them amongst the many corners of the Mirabel Galaxy.

When a routine mission goes rogue, the all-female crew is captured by a bounty hunter from Andi’s past and forced into a job that could, quite literally, start a war that will devour worlds.

Meanwhile, on the far side of the galaxy, the ruthless ruler Nor waits in the shadows of the planet Xen Ptera, biding her time. The final pieces are about to fall into place, liberating a plan that will tear Mirabel in two.

As the Marauder hurtles toward the unknown, there is one lesson that proves to be true: No one can be trusted in a galaxy that runs on lies and illusion.

From internet sensation Sasha Alsberg and multi-genre author Lindsay Cummings comes a new serialized space opera, full of action, intrigue, and steamy star-crossed romance.
