From the Back Cover
When the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?
Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.
As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continues organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.
In this breathless third installment in Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.

The rebellion's side of the story is also told by Cameron. She was not my favorite character in the previous book, so this was a disappointment to begin with. After awhile, it got a ton better and it became clear why she was chosen as a good voice for that particular group, but it made for a rocky start.
The story itself got better mid-book, but by the time I got to the Game of Thrones like scene I was done. In the beginning, I brushed off the many similarities to other books. It's hard to start with something that's completely new anymore, and so many authors are great at taking an old concept and running to new exciting places with it. They make it their own; but I haven't seen that happen a whole lot even though we're now three books in. It's starting to feel like the author doesn't have enough good ideas of her own, so she keeps borrowing from others. It's happened too often to be coincidence at this point.
I also found that by the time I got to the end of the book, I just didn't care about the characters anymore. I kept hoping for more and found them lacking. I was done with the run around and the love triangle that hasn't really been there for a long while.
I do have to give props to a couple elements. I liked the delve into Maven's character. It was really interesting to get a deeper look into his childhood and see why he is the way he is. I also LOVED the new addition of Evangeline to the story perspectives. She is a badass character and it was great to see her further developed. It was one of the only things that kept my interest enough to finish the book, really.
The writing wasn't bad by any means. The plot flowed and made sense, but it wasn't great at holding my attention.
This book had me questioning my previous love for the series. As a whole, this book made it really lose its initial luster. I think it will really affect any rereads I do of book 1 and 2. I'd rate this book a 3 out of 5 and demote the previous 2 books to 4's. If you already love the series, give it a try. I really hope you like it better than I did. If you didn't enjoy the first book or were on the fence about it, I would advise skipping the series at this point. I honestly don't think I will bother reading the last one.
