IF YOU HAVEN’T READ RED QUEEN, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO SO BEFORE READING QUEEN SONG AND THIS REVIEW. When I found out that Queen Song was Coriane’s story, I was excited. While reading Red Queen I found myself constantly thinking about Cal’s mother and wondering what she was like. This novella expands on events that are mentioned in Red Queen and provides backstory for a few characters from the novel including Julian, Sarah Skonos, and Tiberius, the king (who is only a prince at the time). At the beginning of the novella, Julian gives Coriane a diary for her birthday. Throughout the story she uses this diary to write down all of her feelings and thoughts. I thought that this was a great way for readers to better understand what she was going through during the story and provided an insight to her character. I loved that readers got to see how Coriane and Tibe met and how their relationship blossomed over time. The prince knew he wanted Coriane and decided not to have Queenstrial (a competition for the prince’s hand in marriage). While this made plenty of other people mad, it shows his devotion and love for Coriane. He didn’t want to go through with the competition knowing he had already made his choice. As the story evolves readers start to see Coriane’s depression developing and growing. It is heartbreaking to read. My heart hurt for Coriane and her situation, View Spoiler ». Coriane’s heart is filled with so much love and hope for her son, Cal, when he is born. She doesn’t want him to be a soldier like so many of the other kings before had been. She can see the potential in him. She knows that he can do so much better than any of the past kings. The ending of this novel proves just how evil and awful Elara is. I won’t say exactly what happens in case you haven’t read the novella yet, but it left me with questions. Was she manipulating the king after the ending? I found myself wishing this novella was longer than it was. I could even read a whole prequel novel dedicated to Coriane. I recommend reading this novella after Red Queen, otherwise you might be a little lost on at least one of the characters and why she is so suspicious.
