Publisher's Summary

Two women on either side of the Silver-Red divide tell the stories no one else knows.
Queen Song
Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diary - how else can she ensure that no one at the palace will use her thoughts against her? Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince; the birth of a new prince, Cal; and the potentially deadly challenges that lie ahead for her in royal life.
Steel Scars
Diana Farley was raised to be strong, but being tasked with planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expected. As she travels the land recruiting black-market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital, she stumbles upon a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation - Mare Barrow.
This audio edition also features an extract from the new Red Queen novel, Glass Sword.

One good novella, one awful!

Queen song was great, Steel scars was terrible, far too technical with the codes. It made the story very hard to listen to and make sense of.

Not really worth it.

Both of these short stories were a nice addition to the Red Queen series.

I enjoyed finding out more about Queen Coriane in the Queen Song story, including how she met King Tiberias and how she died. The character of Coriane I didn’t fall in love with as much as I would have liked to, she spent a lot of time doubting herself and complaining about being alone in the beginning. The only issue I had with this story was that it didn’t answer the question on who actually killed her, if anything it made it even more questionable. As an individual story I would rate this a 3.5/5 as I would have liked a bit more detail in it.

Steel Scars tells us more about Farley and what she was doing before and overlaps with the Red Queen story. However I didn’t really have any interest in this story at all, it didn’t hook me in and I didn’t feel the need to really know this story. Farley came across in this rather a boring character where as in the Red Queen and Glass Sword I found her to be quite interesting.

Also in this story there was a lot of decoded messages that were being sent between people in the Scarlet Guard, regarding the mission Farley was on. To be honest I had no clue what any of them meant, with code names being used as well as real names it was hard to keep track on what they were talking about.

As an individual story I would rate this with just managing to get a 3/5. I managed to read through this so it was not bad enough for me to force myself to read but this probably was helped by the fact it was only about 100 pages.

Overall I enjoyed the first story but would have much preferred an extended version of Queen Story or a story on another character such as Shade rather than the Farley story in Steel Scars. Together as one book I have given this a 3 stars.

Essential for Red Queen fans.

I loved these stories. Both stories would require some background so it is best they are read after reading at least the second book in the series. But both are very enjoyable journeys.


The stand out by far is the first. The story of Queen Coriane Jacos (Cal's mother). Moving and heartbreaking. Beautifully read by the Narrator. Haunting. Just haunting!
