Based on two important characters in the Red Queen series – Cal’s mother, Corraine, and Farley, a captain of the Scarlet Guard, Cruel Crown gives you backstory to what Corraine was like and how she dies, and about how Farley learns about Mare, and meets Shadow.
There’s not really much to say though.
I LOVED CORRAINE’S STORY.
It was haunting and lyrical and filled with raw pain, with such a tragic ending.
I really loved getting to know the lady everybody praised so much, and I could even see why.
Farley’s story, however, was a bit boring.
Half filled with Scarlet Guard coded communications that I could only decipher halfway, and the other half with boring military stratergy, this one just couldn’t hold my attention.
All in all, a book worth a read ONLY if you’re already CRAZY for the Red Queen series!

Steel Scars sees Farley rise up through the Scarlet Guard, written from her viewpoint with messages scattered throughout as information is relayed between the Scarlet Guard. She meets Shade and learns of the silver and reds that live among them. Not as good as Queen Song but still enjoyable and interesting to discover more about Farley.
A short but sweet book to find out more about certain characters only touched upon in Red Queen.
