War Storm is the fourth and final install of Red Queen Series. This series intrigued my inner need for women’s empowerment along with the need for fantasy. Mare the main character raises the revolution against oppression in a world were being “sliver” make you superior and being “red” indebts you to a life of servitude. Slivers possess the ability to control their environment; while red posses no powers. In book one Mare finds out that she is neither red nor sliver but an entirely different race all together. This revelation makes Mare highly sought for both sides of the cause and is used as a pawn by the revolution and the slivers.
In War Storm Mare’s predicament is finding the balance between loving the sliver King and fighting for her cause. The big question is can Mare break the barrier and bring the nations together under democracy.
I anticipate this book for a long time. The read sucked me in as the first three books did. However, I felt like the storyline would have been better served if it had ended without the epilogue. I wanted so badly for the conclusion to the book to be romanticized and I felt like the epilogue took away for that.
