Description

The first novel in the #1 bestselling RED QUEEN series 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 . . .

From Publishers Weekly

24 November 2014 – In the dystopian future of Aveyard's debut, those who bleed red are the impoverished underclass, meant to serve silver-bloods who boast supernatural gifts that have helped them maintain control. But a rebellion is rising, and 17-year-old Red narrator Mare Barrow is the spark to ignite the Scarlet Guard's cause after she discovers she can summon lightning from her fingertips. Aveyard is adept at describing Mare's psychological struggle, forced to live as a captive among the royal family after her powers manifest ceremony to choose a future queen. Mare's journey as reluctant poster child and mutant becomes as much about fighting for what is right as about untangling the deceit of the privileged upper echelons. There's an unmistakable feeling of deja vu to this first installment in the Red Queen trilogy, which shares several plot points and similarities with the Hunger Games series, with more arenas for barbaric televised slaughter and honed survival skills swapped out for preternatural powers. Fortunately, Aveyard's conclusion leaves the story poised to depart from this derivative setup. Ages 13 up.

Customer Reviews

GOOD. GREAT TO BE HONEST.

Sooo this was an interesting book I am just gonna tell about them all so if you don’t want spoilers: stop.

Buuuut the books were great, I just can’t not stand that it was a love triangle between brothers. Like typical, so typical. And when (like always) she chooses the older one I just couldn’t.
But that was not the worst part. No, the worst part was when the younger brother died and she did not even end up with the older one. LIKE WTF DID JUST HAPPEN.
I didn’t like when she was like: oh I am so important, and I didn’t at any point like that everyone else thought that too. Get real.

Tho I really liked when they talked about how she fell I love, with both of them (I didn’t like that she did it, just you know how it was described. To be honest like I wrote before I hate brother triangles it’s to episode).
But even after all this I would still recommend it. I have already, I always do with the books I like. I tell them to my friends but they don’t read and not even near as much as I do. But this book, this one I talked about so much I got one to read it, and she really loved it. So if you like fantasy read this!
