Mare Vs. Evangeline: Who is YOUR Favorite Red Queen Lady?
In King’s Cage, the third book in the Red Queen series, Victoria Aveyard FINALLY let us get in the head of Evangeline (the girl everyone loves to hate but really kind of just loves). So now that we know her a little better, we have to ask the question…who do you like better, Mare or Evangeline? Let’s break it down.
🚨 SPOILER WARNING 🚨 If you have not read beyond the first book, Red Queen, some of the information below could be a potential spoiler, so proceed with extreme caution!

Favorite Mare vs. Evangeline Moments:

  • When Evangeline is kicking ass at Queenstrial and bends the walls of the arena towards the floor causing Mare to fall out of a spectator box and steal the show when she reveals her lightning for the first time.
  • When Mare is starting to train as a fake silver princess and Evangeline just can’t give her a break and challenges her to a spar, almost exposing her red blood to rest of the court.
  • Evangeline and Mare going head to head in the Bowl Bones in an epic battle for survival, pure hatred pouring from them both.

So as the trainers in Red Queen would say, “Who has the advantage?” Who would you choose – Evangeline or Mare? Vote in the poll below!
