Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

22328546

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.

Cover Reveal: King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard

30226723

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! jeremy-renner

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.

Review: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

23174274If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.
