Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

In honour of the third book to this series, King’s Cage coming out on February 7th I had to make the first book to that series this weeks Friday Favourite. Check out the last Friday Favourite here

Anyways, before I can reread the newest book, I’ll have to reread this entire series. Which I don’t have enough time for at the moment. I’m definitely going to start doing series recaps. When I have time…if that day ever comes.

Anyways, in it’s review, this book was rated 4 1/2 stars! I forgot, but it was amazing after all. The only big problem I had with this book at first was its slow beginning. At this point it isn’t slow at all. I expect great things from the newest book.

The world Aveyard introduced to me in this series was amazing! I fell in love and don’t plan on following back out anytime soon. Mare is a character I couldn’t help, but like and her development throughout the novel and the series as a whole is phenomenal.

What were your favourite parts to this book?
I’m finding I can’t really come up with specifics right now just because it’s been so long.

Until next time,
