The #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen series comes to a stunning conclusion in War Storm.


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.


  • Amazing and disappointing at the same time

    I enjoyed reading the book but the ending was somewhat predictable..... I didn’t got the satisfaction out of the ending, instead I got frustrated!
  • A perfect ending to a great series...

    By Lfinley3
    Mare Barrow, the Reds, the Silvers and the Royals of Norta are some of my all time favorite characters. I’ve loved each book and the writing is truly exceptional. I’ll miss the series but believe that this was the right ending at the right time. Thank you for such a beautiful story!
  • Disappointing

    By mfreeman0224
    ** This review will contain spoilers ** As many of you, I was so excited to read the final book of this series. However, once started, it went slower than I expected. I found myself getting sidetracked, not focused on the story, and ultimately bored. The ending was by far the most anti climactic ending I could have ever imagined. I wanted to read more details of Evangeline’s ending. I’d like to picture her and her brother and their spouses walking with a dark skinned Samos baby in tow. Or maybe Mare and Cal putting aside all this ridiculous unnecessary resentment and actually be happy. And be TOGETHER. But that’s not he case. I swear another book entirely could be written about the questions that have been left unanswered. I’m glad I read this on my phone, or I would have thrown my hard copy across the room.
  • Yaaaass!!

    By Shelbie love this appppppp'
    It wrapped up the series perfectly! Nothing like waiting months and months for a book and it fill every expectation I had. Mare Barrow and Cal hit the mark once again. Amazing read. Kept me on my toes.

  • Disappointed, had higher expectations

    By disappointed, had higher hopes
    It’s just so sad to see a book series you love so much, end so badly. The plot wasn’t very interesting and at some parts I was snoozing off. Mare didn’t seem like herself in this book, no heroic moments, just timid ones. What’s worse is how we never know if Mare and Cal ever get their happily ever after. I mean after 4 books we still don’t know if they are together. I feel the author tried to make it way too realistic and political with meaning of what’s happening right know, that it just took over the whole book. There were barely any parts of the book where I was really in to it. Sometimes I had to leave the book and come back to it because of boredom. To be honest I expected more. I’m very disappointed. 😫😭😖😤

    I started the Red Queen series about a month ago. After I read the first 3 books in four days. Took me two days to read War storm. Even though War Storm didn't end exactly how I wanted it to, it was an awesome ending to an amazing series. These books are so good and I highly recommend the read. Very sad the journey is done.
  • The Perfect Book

    By Pier391
    This is just perfect. The ending shows just how strong Mare really is, not only her ability, but her will as well.
  • I had higher expectations.

    By MattieGrace
    The realistic emotions and relationships have developed into the best part of the series but the plot is where I felt the book fell short. The plot was a meandering stream where all the fight/war scenes lost their charm because of their uniformity. I kept expecting Mare to pick herself up by her bootstraps and assert herself as our heroine but I found that she faded into the background of the conflict except where Cal was concerned (and after all we don’t want to read about boring people but extraordinary people who change the world around them). The complexity of emotions was rich and made each character intriguing, especially as they’ve changed through the series, but overall I expected something more climatic.
  • Grossly disappointed

    By America's #1 Fan
    I pre-ordered this book with great excitement. I have finished reading it and it was truly painful to get through. I didn't think things could be worse than King's Cage when Mare was held prisoner for two-thirds of the book. I was definitely wrong. The author seemed to try too hard to be overly descriptive. I found myself nodding off several times. What a waste. To end a series with such a snooze fest is just disheartening. Not worth the money I spent nor the anticipated.
