War Storm (B&N Exclusive Edition) (Red Queen Series #4) by Victoria Aveyard

This Barnes & Noble exclusive edition of War Storm, the epic conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen series, contains a bonus pull-out map of Scarlet Guard strongholds.

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.

Not a typical read ir outcome. Not an ending...not really. Lots of political strategy. Not what i expected or hoped for... Kind of disappointing.

Waited for the final release in this story and was disappointed. The story lines do not wrap up and there are too many things left to question. Could have taken less time on a battle and more time on the ending.

After all that build up and ensuing anticipation this ending really was a let down. It almost feels like a giant present left under the Christmas tree that you go to open, and its just camouflage for a tiny box with a pair of socks hidden within increasingly smaller boxes.

The ending left way too many questions for me I felt a like I was left wanting too much more for a book series finale.

2 1/2 stars! I didn't really expect anything super great out of this book, but I was very disappointed. It was very repetitive but the ENDING THOUGH. I was VERY unsatisfied and I feel like many can agree with me. I really wish it would've been told a better way. I'm not trying to hate on it, but there aren't many good things to say. The good parts were when the chapters included: Evangeline, Tolly, and Cameron (who only appears in this book once!) Overall, I am happy this series is FINALLY over and I would not read this book again. There are so many pages and I thought it was kind of a waste of time.

The book and series was amazing as always, but the ending was seriously lacking. We went through so much with Cal and Mare, even Evangeline to leave the readers hanging on the very end of this series. In my opinion she could have written a few more pages of closure at least for Mare and Cal. Other than that, the book was well done and I wish there was more to the series.

(Please note: there is a slight spoiler in this review!) This book ruined the entire series for me. I really delved into all of the other Red Queen books, but this last one was tedious and drawn-out. The male characters' perspectives were considerably flat compared to the females' and only added to the already unnecessary page count. However, it was the ridiculous cliff-hanger ending that really stamped the seal of disapproval for me. I like a little room for my own imagination at the end of a series, but this book is just flat-out incomplete. There needs to be another book, or at the very least 200-300 pages of further explanation. Sadly, I'm not satisfied at all with the end of the Red Queen series and won't be recommending it to anyone.

I am a die hard Victoria Aveyard fan and I LOVE Red Queen, Glass Sword, and Kings Cage they are AWESOME and this book certainly does not disappoint. The one thing I absolutely hate about this book though is.... THAT IT IS THE LAST ONE IN THE SERIES! When I heard this was the last one I was heart broken. You really sparked up a flame. I kinda want a book like Cruel Crown for when Cal and Maven were kids and they were in the front when Thomas died. Anyways like I said AMAZING book, one that can’t be topped.

I loved these books but would like to see one more continuation of Mara, Cal and all of the other central characters. I was not ready to let go.

There really aren't words that adequately sum up my thoughts on WAR STORM. I loved it, obviously. It was brilliantly plotted, whip fast (which is saying something for a 600+ page book), and was SO TENSE. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time; there was never a dull moment, and I was so scared and nervous and anxious the whole time I was reading it. The ending...yeah. It was literally what woke me up this morning. It was exactly what the series called for. It has left me heartbroken, but in a good, unexpected way, if there is such a thing? Mare and Cal will always have a special place in my heart, as will this series. Bravo, Victoria Aveyard.

I have been meaning to write this review for weeks. Weeks I tell you! I sped-read through WAR STORM and now that so much time has passed, I feel like I won’t remember much of anything since I fail to retain book information for longer than a few days. But I will say that I went through a torrid of emotions because of this finale. And I am happy and upset and in wanting - desperate wanting. So much happens. And when I mean so much - I mean a lot of action. There are so many battles to be had and so much….just in action! I don’t know any other way to describe it but it was too much for my neuroses to handle. I am normally not a fan of this sort of storytelling where fights after fights take place because I feel like it just takes away from the development of characters and relationships (which, let’s face it, are my favorite parts), but I have to admit that I really liked how this book flowed. I mean…WAR STORM is a thick book - I haven’t read one so long since…my Harry Potter days. It’s hard not to get lost in those scenes, but I have to admit that my heart was definitely racing from the thrill of what would happen, especially because characters like Evangeline are more prominent and kick ass. The one (well, two, but I’ll get to number two in a few…) issue I had was Maven. I love Maven. I obviously fell for Maven as much as everyone did in RED QUEEN because he is so damaged and so traumatized from his mother’s manipulation and a life of being in Cal’s shadow. I thought his character was so much more villainized in this book much more so than the others in an attempt to make him look like an even bigger antagonist. And do not get me started about the ending when it concerns Maven because I am convinced that something big is going to come from it in the future - it may not be the next series that Aveyard has planned, but I think it’s pretty much like with Leigh Bardugo and SHADOW AND BONE/KING OF SCARS. It’s like you know it’s not the last you’ve seen of this character by any means. Nevertheless, I still loved Maven. I felt sad for him because there was absolutely no one on his side and no one to bring him back. I found it even worse between Cal/Maven/Mare because of their entanglements and how much Cal and Mare truly cared for Maven. It was painful to read and I did feel the angst and bitterness in all of their characters. I was absolutely pleasantly surprised by how much I loved Evangeline. I think she just blossomed and became such an epic character to me. She had always been kickass, I guess I had just been blinded by the fact that she just stood in the way of my Cal/Mare love, but I was young then and now I am so pleased with the direction her character took. She owns her silver powers and I felt so for how much she missed Elane. GO LBTQ REPRESENTATION! I found it incredibly believable (though, I will admit that I haven’t encountered it too much in the books I’ve read) and I liked that it made Evangeline so much more dimensional to me. Sure, she’s got her brave, stubborn, bold, and powerful side to her, but the vulnerable, pained, broken side of her makes that side so much better to me a reader. She is just one…awesome female character. To be quite honest, I find her even better than most prominent female leads in YA books. LET’S WRITE MORE CHARACTERS LIKE EVANGELINE SAMOS.

I fell in love with Red Queen right from the start. I bought each book the minute they came out and finished reading them within days. For me, no matter what, the story was great. I agree with some of the other reviews that this book wasn't exactly the resolution to the series that I wanted. A majority of the book was focused on the war, but that was kind of expected. The ending leaves things kind if up in the air, but I liked the fact that it wasn't completely wrapped up considering that war takes a long time to recover from and it wouldn't have felt right if everything was perfect at the end. The main reason I like War Storm was because of the different perspectives. Each chapter switched off between the point of view of Mare, Cal, Evangeline, Mavin, and Iris. It made the story more interesting to be able to see how the events were different for each character and to be able to get in side their minds to read the thoughts they often don't speak out loud and don't let themselves show. I do admit I am biased because I enjoyed the first book and each book after that I think I was able to overlook some of the faults other reviewers mentioned. But either way, I would recommend reading War Storm because it does tie up a very good story and lets you know where each character stands in the end.

I was hooked from book 1 through the finish. Excellent allegory for the current oppression of minority communities in the world. Great pace, great writing. I'm only sad the series is done!

I just finished reading this and have no idea how I feel lol. I think I envisioned the series ending a certain way and it didn’t…so I’m completely thrown off. I felt the ending was also too open-ended for my tastes. I won’t go into more details because spoilers but yeah. It almost feels like we need a novella to tie everything up. I prefer clean cut endings. I don’t like it when they end and I have to imagine different scenarios…..It’s just not my cup of tea. I’ve heard we are getting some novellas set in this world so I hope the author gives me a true wrap up to one of my all time favorite series. One of the things I enjoyed most in this book was the longing between two characters. Actually, there was quite a bit of longing between several characters BUT I’m specifically referring to a certain couple. ((Don’t you just love it when you are trying to write up a review and keep it spoiler free? lol!!)) The moments between this specific couple were just the best. I craved more and more from these two throughout the entire book. I truly loved how the Scarlet Guard kept fighting for what was right. It wasn’t easy and it went against everything that everyone knew up until that point. But still, they kept pushing and fighting for justice. I admired their perseverance. The characters throughout this series are such memorable ones. I can’t help but picture where they are now and how their lives have changed. That’s another reason I’m hoping for more post War Storm novellas. Tell me all my faves are living their best lives ever!! Overall, this book was a mammoth. I think it could’ve been shorter realistically. I also didn’t care for the pacing in the first half. I needed more push to the plot, more drive to get me invested in this finale. The second half was very dramatic/action packed as expected. However, I wish it would’ve slowed down just a bit to let the moments we’ve been building up to for several books last longer. I’m a huge fan of this series and still highly recommend it to everyone. It will always hold a special place in my heart. I cannot wait to read what this author comes up with next.

It was good. Some dull parts that I tried to skim through so I wouldn’t fall asleep or never pick it up again.

I cannot put into words how much I've loved this series. It's exactly what I'm a sucker for-- a teen who is nobody special, just trying to make it through life, finds out she is special because she has some sort of powers (actual powers in this case, but sometimes it's just extraordinary character or ability to see things differently). Once those powers are revealed, she has to decide if she wants to help save the world or not and, oh yeah, a few guys are super interested in her (at least one of them always was) and now they vie for her hand. I love it. I can't get enough of it. And this one is especially snarky and beautiful and I love how real the characters are and how you know them so well. No one is innocent or perfect, but they are all complex and interesting. (Well, maybe besides Mare's family. They're pretty flat, but they are not the focus of the story.) I loved visiting Montfort in this one. It really made me think about how the U.S. addresses helping other nations. It's unique in the literature I've read to be looking at a democracy from the outside and not knowing how/ if it's going to work in the country you're in. There are so many good reminders that democracy and equality take time. A LOT of time, but they are worth fighting for and MUST be fought for. I loved the growth of Evangeline and the ways in which we start to doubt Julian. And the ending... oh the ending!!!! Stick around to read the Acknowledgements, too. They made me cry. I did not enjoy Iris as a character or the chapters from her point of view, but there was a lot of narrative importance there so they can't be cut.
