The #1 bestselling Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard comes to a stunning conclusion in this fourth and final book.
Victory comes at a price.
Mare Barrow learned this all too well when Cal's betrayal nearly destroyed her. Now determined to protect her heart-and secure freedom for Reds and newbloods like her-Mare resolves to overthrow the kingdom of Norta once and for all... starting with the crown on Maven's head.
But no battle is won alone, and before the Reds may rise as one, Mare must side with the boy who broke her heart in order to defeat the boy who almost broke her. Cal's powerful Silver allies, alongside Mare and the Scarlet Guard, prove a formidable force. But Maven is driven by an obsession so deep, he will stop at nothing to have Mare as his own again, even if it means demolish everything - and everyone - in his path.
War is coming, and all Mare has fought for hangs in the balance. Will victory be enough to topple the Silver kingdoms? Or will the little lightning girl be forever silenced?
In the epic conclusion to Victoria Aveyard's stunning series, Mare must embrace her fate and summon all her power.. For all will be tested, but not all will survive.

War Storm was a great ending to this amazing series.

By the time I got round to reading this book I had forgotten how annoying and self centred Mare and Cal are. Definitely not my favourite main characters either. But it is nice to know that sometimes the main guys are not always the nice guys.

What I did love was seeing more of Evangeline and how much she has grown since book one. She is one of my favourite characters and is someone that I really wished that we could have seen more of. Hell, even been the main character. She had attitude and was not afraid to state her opinion. And she is a survivalist and you see that in all her actions.

For me War Storm did tie this series up but I had a few questions. Luckily the author has released a further book entitled Broken Throne with has a short story that continues on from after the events of War Storm and for me felt like the final goodbye.

But here all bases were covered and I was satisfied by the outcome and the paths all the characters chose. For me War Storm  shows that war is bloody and messy. That you don’t always get to act the way you want. And sometimes some things are unexpected as people cling to hope. Every decision everyone made was for the benefit of the war they were waging. And annoying or not there was a reason for them to act the way they did.

This was not perfect but there was something satisfying and comforting in reading this book and being in contact with some of my favourite characters. It was an ending that made me want to read the series all over again. To see if there was anything that I had missed and to see if anything could have been done differently.  But I think that I would have come out with exactly the same outcome.
