Mare Is Under Attack In WAR STORM Excerpt

Who is after Mare and her allies in this WAR STORM excerpt?!

We’ve all been waiting not-so-patiently for Victoria Aveyard‘s War Storm, the final book in the Red Queen quartet, but we’re so close now! The book hits shelves next month but in the meantime, there’s a new teaser to enjoy!

The excerpt finds Mare and her traveling party, which includes Cal, Evangeline, and Farley, attacked by a surprisingly ragtag group of Silvers who are ready to destroy them with the help of some gruesome animos powers. Take a look below!

The first cycle snarls out of the tree line, its single headlight blinding. The raider on it is small, with spindly limbs, armor, and goggles. He is also boldly stupid, driving the cycle up and off a boulder, sending himself arcing over the road.

Above me, Evangeline slices her hands through the air. The cycle shreds at her command, spokes and pipes peeling apart.

But she isn’t the only magnetron here.

The raider keeps his seat, and the cycle knits back together beneath his body, continuing its leap over the hood of the transport.

In the darkness, it’s hard to discern their shadows. They don’t look like the Silvers I’m used to, in fine robes, polished armor, and gleaming jewels. They don’t even have the neat severity of training suits and uniforms. These Silvers are different, their clothes a patchwork, their weapons and gear mismatched. I’m reminded, more than anything, of the Scarlet Guard in their scraps of red, united only by a color and a cause.

The cycles disappear into the smoky underbrush, their headlights bobbing and weaving out of sight. I reach for the engines, trying to grab hold before they pass beyond my grasp. But another rumble makes me pause, a pounding thrum lurching close.

I can feel it in my teeth.


War Storm (Red Queen #4) hits bookshelves on May 15, 2018. You can preorder it via Amazon or Indiebound!
