“There is nothing so terrible as a story untold.” – Victoria Aveyard.
The other day I bought Cruel Crown which consists of two short stories by Aveyard set in the Red Queen universe. Due to the two stories being very different I decided to write up two separate reviews, rather than squashing them both together. These stories take place before the events of Red Queen although it makes sense to read Red Queen and even Glass Sword first. I read both of these quite recently and have reviews for the first book here and second book here.
The first of these stories is Queen Song which focuses on Cal’s mother, Queen Coriane and it basically tells the story of her life before becoming queen up until and shortly after the birth of Cal.
