Brief Description

Graceling meets The Selection in debut novelist Victoria Aveyard's sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king's palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

    The title says it all. Not only is it so unoriginal I have absolutely no idea HOW it was published, but the whiny main character Mare (who names a character after a type of horse??), is so annoying and oh-so powerful and SPESHUL (typo on purpose), that I want to both barf and slap her in the face (it only gets worse in the next books, trust me). The plot was slow and boring, the idea completely unoriginal, which I’ve already said before (read Red Rising instead. Or the Hunger Games. It knocks off both of these greatly). The side characters have no complexity, neither in this book or the others, the insufferable MC has not one, not two, but THREE love interests, although it’s pretty obvious who she ends up with (even from the beginning)at the end of the series. The actual author can’t handle criticism and tends to write her fans off. And the fans. Good lord Jesus, I have never met such a defensive, blind, violent (lol) bunch. They can’t handle the slightest of criticism, much like the author, and they all tend to sound like romance-obsessed thirteen year-old girls. Not every fan is like this of course, but it gave me a Twilight fan vibe, which is NOT good. Please, please, please spare yourself. It’s not worth it.

    I own all of the books in this series on iTunes along with hard cover copies. I have read this book four times! This book sets an amazing beginning for this truly incredible four book series! They are so action packed and you CANNOT put this book down! The entire series is so thrilling that you just want to read it over and over again!!! The characters are great and the plot is the best I have ever read!! These books are so creative and they also have an air of history in that Mare’s world is segregated. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to spice up their life or just read (my personally favorite) book!!!!!!!!!!
  • Need MORE!!

    one of the best books I’ve read in my life time , hands down

    By Hailbail858
    The beginning was a bit rough to get into, but once the formalities were sorted out it was like I was sucked in and the next thing I knew It was a week later, i had $75 less dollars, no sense of sleep, and tears streaming down my face (the good kind). The author did an amazing job with the main character-Mare-I often times find myself getting annoyed with the main character in YA book series, but Mare was everything I could hope for and more!MUST READ.
  • Surprisingly good!

    I was lent a copy of this when I was stuck somewhere with out my own forms of entertainment, thought it would just kill time. Turns out it became a preferred way to spend the day time wise. Well paced, creates interest quickly while slowly bringing in the history of this world (unlike some where the first two or more chapters are slow history lessons). Although I am hoping the next few books shows more of how the schism came to exist between the two main opposing forces, enough is given in the first book to have the reader invested. I’m very excited to read the next “The Glass Sword” and find where are rebels end up! While not a total cliffhanger in how the book ends, it is definitely just the beginning of the full rebellion story and taunting in bringing in another character in the final pages that leaves a burning desire to learn that persons back story. Also recommend reading steel scar, maybe even first but think I would have been more lost if I hadn’t already read “Red Queen” first.

    By DestinyFantasy13
    This book well it changed my life sounds weird tho but honestly didn’t expect anything that was thrown at me.for awhile I became paranoid because it gave me a different perspective on things which turned out to be good but the book it’s just the best.i can’t really go on talking about t without spoiling it if you haven’t read it but dear lord if only you knew what was coming if you haven’t read it yet but do it read it and love it💛
  • Good book

    It was great. I need not say more.
  • Red Queen

    By scxndalously
    Red Queen, personally, I kind of skimmed through the beginning and middle. It was rather slow, and there was no action. Only the end made me want to read more of it. I don’t find that this could be four books, as it is now, considering that Mare’s story, to me, basically ends on the second book. I was truly disappointed that there were no characters of different race, and there isn’t much character development.

    If you like the hunger games and X-men then you’ll love this book.
