Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country - and his prisoner. As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows.

I'm the exception. I think I enjoyed glass sword more than kings cage. However, I enjoyed the multiple POVs offered....BUT Cameron's was awful. She lost of the zest and bite and sass that Mares voice actor gave her. Not to mention if one voice actor does accents for other characters all the voice actors need to follow suit for consistency.

This story was very interesting. The voice actor was awful but the story kept me engaged. I didn't enjoy the instalove portion but I loved the technical portions and all the problem solving. And really diving into what leadership should look like. Definitely worth the read but I hope the next one has a different actor!!!

The storyline was dystopian and interesting enough but There were definitely some cringe worthy moments, an unnecessary love triangle and a lot of repeat language, but I was enjoying it. Up until that awful ending. What a complete let down. But on the flip side the voice actor was great.
