King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard

First, I thought this was a trilogy and it's NOT!  It's a 4 book series and the last one doesn't get released until 2018!!! NOOOOO!!!!  I actually waited for this one to be released before I started the series thinking it was a trilogy.  Ahhhh!  So, now I wait a year to see how it all ends.  It is a good series and held true to MY opinion of what is appropriate for a young adult audience UNTIL this one. :(  Be aware that there is sex between the main characters who are teenagers.  There is  also a teen pregnancy and a relationship between 2 girls in the this book - the third of 4 in the series.  Just FYI.

Summary from amazon.com:
In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl's spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare's heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.
