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. Continue reading “Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard”
Ahh February, what shall you bring me? By the looks of it at the moment a lot of dystopia. Good or bad sign?
Yuusssssssss. I approve 100%
Although I do not approve that I have to wait another 216 days before I get to read it! I mean c’mon I didn’t mean to, but I flew through those first two books with no regrets…until I realized how long I had to wait. Will I ever learn? Nope.
Anyways, this cover. Sticks to the theme but what it says!
The title gets me every. Single. Time. And it will continue to the. All of the foreshadowing and possibilities just in those two words. Presented beautifully with red and silver blood. That’s what I’m talking about. All will burn. Definitely a happy cover reveal just for those words. And I will go drown my not being able to read this book yet out in other books now.
Side note: Sorry this took so long to get to, I’m aware it came out much earlier in the week, summer kicked my feet out from under me and suddenly the cover was released.
