“There is nothing so terrible as a story untold.”


Return once more to the deadly and dazzling world of Red Queen in Broken Throne, a beautifully designed, must-have companion to the chart-topping series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyard.

The perfect addition to the #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen series, this gorgeously designed package features three brand-new novellas, two previously published novellas, Steel Scars and Queen Song, and never-before-seen maps, flags, bonus scenes, journal entries, and much more exclusive content.

Fans will be delighted to catch up with beloved characters after the drama of War Storm and be excited to hear from brand-new voices as well. This stunning collection is not to be missed!



This is a book collection that you wouldn’t want to miss. Other than the gorgeous cover this is not just a collection story, this feels like the Epilogue and the Prologue of the whole series.

I am already amazed by how Victoria Aveyard expands the world but this is another level. We get to see a glimpse of their history books; how the divide between the silvers and reds started, information about previous rulers, information about the other nations and how they reacted to the change in Norta, and a lot more. We have maps and dossiers here and there and I am here for it!

And other than that, the novellas in this book is really like an Epilogue as we see Evangeline’s new life and Cal & Mare’s ending. I was really frustrated with how the author decided to wrap up Cal and Mare’s relationship in War Storm but after reading this, I can finally say that they deserve it after everything that happens.

And although the first two novellas in this book has already been published before, it is nice to reread it again and see how this story becomes relevant to the series as a whole.

But my favorite story out of all this is of course, Maven and Cal’s. That broke my heart. It is sad and it hurts to see how Cal loves his brother, how he wants to fix it in anyway possible. Yet the most painful of it all is the goodbye. And I kinda hate the author for letting me wallow in the thoughts of what ifs when she first introduced the hope of having a possibility of fixing Maven. It’s the only aspect of the book which I wish ended differently.

I think this book is a must to anyone who has read this series because it is not like any other novella that would not really change your perspective of the story if you read it or not. You really need to read it for this is how the story ends.


That all for this review. Till next time!



A reader who becomes a villain, a queen, a princess, a heroine, and a warrior depends on the story that she reads. A dreamer who wishes to dwell in the world that she visited through the pages of her book. A frustrated blogger who wishes to put into words the frustration, boredom, and excitement that she felt throughout her many journeys outside the real world.
