Good Closure

I enjoyed the books, it wrapped things up nicely. Since I was looking for *what* the novellas were about and was struggling to find it before purchase, so I'll put it here. The first two are the previously released novellas, Queen Song and Steel Scars.

The first new novella takes place during the events of War Storm and is about a silver woman on the run and a river man in the Disputed lands (or free lands, depending on who you ask), and gives a good outside perspective (they hear about the lightning girl et al in the form of gossip), and you get a good feel for how other people live in this world.

The second new novella is about Evangeline and Elane right after War Storm living with the fall out from the events and trying to build a new life.

The third new novella is the one I was waiting for, taking place a couple months after War Storm when Mare and Cal meet back up.

Interwoven between them all is a historical narrative, telling about the formation and fall of the kingdoms, and ultimately giving what happened to Cal and Mare in the form of a historical narrative.

Overall, I enjoyed them all.

Good wrap up.

I enjoyed the way closure to this story was presented by various angles. Also, the last perspective was well done.

Same issue as before

I really enjoy this series. It’s one of my favorites. I have the same complaint as before. There is too much of the reading of reports!!
It’s like she put this long drug out nonsense to fill the pages.
Story line is great and keeps your interest all the way through. The characters draw you in.
This book finished everything up with a nice bow on top.
I hope she starts a brand new series.

Everything but the kitchen sink

If you were like me, excited for the next book in the series to hear what happens next...? You'll be as disappointed as I am with this book!

The 1st 21 chapters were pure torture to get through!!! Just a bunch of miltary-like correspondence & history lessons. I felt like I was in school listening to my teacher drone on.

I normally ♡ Victoria Aveyard's books but it was like she just threw this book together... putting in a bunch of nonsense filler about characters that had very little to do with the Red Queen story, if they were even named at all, and then, when she finally got to the actual characters I was waiting to hear from (chapter 22) it was rushed to an uneventful ending in a sped up timeline. There was sooo much potential with the story and the characters. Im EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!

Hard to follow

The first 3/4 of the book are confusing listening to. The last part of the is great. Wraps up the characters wonderfully. The time lines are hard to listen to, the narrator is boring, very monotone.

Good Closure

I loved the Red Queen series and since I was late to the game on the series, I was able to read all the books in order, and only had to wait about two months for Broken Throne to come out. I was very excited then let down at the beginning, but ultimately happy by the end.

First off, I wish I had bought the hard copy book to read this- I don’t think the contents of the novellas were well suited for an audiobook. So many letters, notes, etc. in Julian’s parts in the beginning made it hard to truly follow. And quite frankly his parts were like non-fiction: dull and monotone and very hard to absorb the details being given. Second, the chapters weren’t clearly defined and many occurred at odd breaks, again making it hard to follow.

Another reviewer kindly broke out the novellas - the two from Cruel Crown first and then a follow-up with Evangeline, Cal and Mare, with history from Julian mixed in at the beginning.

The first third of the book felt like a waste, but the last two thirds made it a worth while read. Overall, I agree with other readers that this was nice closure for the series. A great story, a great series, and a great read.

book is booring

this book is super boring super confusing. Doesn't state that it's talking about journals in the first part of it and then it just pisses off into nothing. Nothing like the other books.

Ugh

This is my first negative review - this book was so bad I had to write one, I LOVE THIS SERIES - this book....horrible. The coded messages - way too may of them - "operative ...redacted...destination...redacted."...the book should be redacted.

I tried to get through the book but only made it about 2 hours - had to end the torture.
