“We are the same, she thought. Searching for something to keep us anchored, both alone in a crowded room.” 5 Stars easily!!! This book fascinated me. I loved Queen Coriane. I fell in love with her seamlessly. Coriane was a whisper but she didn’t use her powers for evil. Coriane was content to tinker with odds and ends and live her life. She wasn’t prepared for King Tiberas to come along and upturn her world. This is a beautiful, yet heartbreaking novella. It adds SO MUCH to the series.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars Victoria Aveyard’s writing is superb in this prequel novella to Red Queen. Queen Song tells the backstory of Queen Coriane, from her life before the Royal Court to her friendship with the crown prince as well as the heartache and despair that comes with being a Silver daughter. Although the writing was strong, the main character was not. I think Coriane’s personality didn’t fully get across to me and her troubles came across as a pity party. She seemed like she’d make a great mechanic or engineer and a big reader, but she doesn’t really fight for those things. As well, she talks about these things, but we don’t really see her doing them. It should be show, don’t tell. She also observes and thinks about the Reds and the Silvers. I did like that and I felt like she could’ve made strong strides as the Queen. She acknowledges that the Reds have it so much worse than the Silvers, but the focus remains on what the Silvers can’t do (like fight cancer or death). The irony is that she’s told multiple times to get a backbone and is written as weak and underwhelming. I read Red Queen over a year ago so I don’t remember every skill/talent that the Silver houses are known for, never mind remember what a Singer can do. I wish the author had mentioned Coriane’s ability earlier (rather than near the end) and maybe explained it a bit more. I was actually starting to think Coriane didn’t even have one. Elara’s ability was mentioned earlier and in greater detail. Maybe my main issue was that, I the reader know the fate of this character, having read Red Queen and wished for a character who fights up until the last moment, despite their fate. Coriane did act but it didn’t feel significant. It seemed to place her deeper into the hole. If you liked the Red Queen series or want to read about the backstory of this character, this is a quick read – just don’t expect a great YA heroine.

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.
