Författare: Victoria Aveyard
Serie: Red queen #Red Queen 0.1-0.2
OBS SPOILERS kan förekomma!
Handling: Two women on either side of the Silver and Red divide tell the stories no one else knows.
Discover the truth of Norta’s bloody past in these two revealing prequels to #1 New York Times bestseller Red Queen.
Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diary—how else can she ensure that no one at the palace will use her thoughts against her? Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince, the birth of a new prince, Cal, and the potentially deadly challenges that lay ahead for her in royal life.
Diana Farley was raised to be strong, but being tasked with planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expected. As she travels the land recruiting black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital, she stumbles upon a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation—Mare Barrow.
|I recommend Cruel Crown to fans and/or casual readers of ”Red Queen”. It was quiet interesting to read from queen Coriane and also from captain farley. You get to know them better ( well duh thats obvious)
Elara is a sneaky bitch, i hate her more in this book.
The romance between Coriane and Tibe was sweet and raw, heartbreaking at times. There was also a good pacing here and the Silver blood’s powers were drawn neatly.It’s nice to know Coriane’s story after she was mysteriously mentioned in Red Queen.When it comes to the ending, it was a bit hazy and mind-boggling, thus leaving us with a big question: WHO DID IT?
I give it 3/5
