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.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Guys so I loved this book! I’m currently reading Glass Sword and hoping to finish the series by like Thursday. I will finish it this week…. until the next book comes out.

Anyways, this book also had a very different type of concept. Like it’s a dystopian, but it’s fantasy. I’m classifying it as dystopian though. I really liked this book though and Mare reminds me a lot of Katniss. She’s such a strong character. I think she has such a great relationship with her family and Cal. Also, that ending though??? Not okay!

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars because it was a little slow at first. I recommend it to middle school and up! I can’t wait to read more!
