King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard30226723

This is the very much anticipated third instalment of the Red Queen series! With the cliffhanger that left me with so many questions at the end of Glass Sword, I really cannot wait to dive into King’s Cage. I’ve also kind of (really) missed the Silvers and their petty politics back at the palace, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ve been handling recent events. Plus, have you seen all the snippets Victoria’s been teasing us with? If not, be sure to check them out by clicking here because they’ve got me even more hyped for the release! There’s just a month to go, so mark 9th February in your calendars! Read more

Readers learn that after being betrayed, she was captured and made to serve out her punishment by working in the salt mines of Endovier. The cruel and unforgiving work camp for 17 year old Celaena was basically a death sentence. A year later, a small miracle occurs when the young assassin is presented with a proposition from none other than the Crown Prince of Adarlan. She must compete and win against thugs, murderers and thieves in a series of tasks that will test her abilities and competency for the role of the King’s Champion. If she wins, Celaena will be given the freedom she so deeply desires after serving as the King’s Champion for 4 years.
