Review | Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

A solid but unremarkable series opener. Hopefully Red Queen has laid sturdy foundations for future installments to be even better. 3/5 stars.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard by book cover

I understand why so many readers rave about this book. The main character, Mare, is a well-developed, principled, brave young woman. The story moves along at a good pace. The magical elements of Aveyard’s world are integrated skillfully with more familiar technological and mundane features from our world. Overall this is an enjoyable read and I will read the next bookGlass Sword – when it comes out next year.
