I listened to the audio book of this. This book contains 2 different stories. The 1st story, Queen Song, gives the backstory of Cal's mother and what happened to her. I'm kind of in the middle on what I feel about this one. I gave this story a 3. It was interesting. I didn't not like it, but I didn't love it either. Now the 2nd story, Steel Scars, was better in my opinion. This is Farley's backstory and how she is tasked with planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta. She goes to recruit black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital, and what she finds is Mare Barrow. I really enjoyed this story and would give it a 4, so for the book as a whole, I would give it a 3.5. ( )

The first tale of the novella really took my interest. The later was necessary , but somewhat lagging. ( )

I definitely enjoyed the first story more than the second, I liked learning more about the Queen and I wasn't as into the military report style of the other one. ( )

Queen Song: I like this story. I found it interesting. For me, this one added to the overall story.

Steel Scars: This one is boring. Just war tactics and nothing else. redacted redacted redacted. ( )

Worth a read

For those who have read the first 2 books in the Red Queen series - even if you've just read the first. Nice insight into two important females. ( )
