Power is a dangerous game.
Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver.
Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn’t know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into 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 her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.
Should I say that this is my favorite book? Hmmm… I do not have a favorite book, actually.
Well, I have read tons of books and each has given me book feels. Maybe after this moment the book hangover remains and I cannot proceed into reading more books. Each book is never as good as the rest. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard has given me a wilder ride of roller coaster.
This is dystopian. You know what is in a dystopia. Yes, there are cliches but this has a very different concept. My friends told me to read it months ago but never advised me with regards to guiding my feels, emotions and heart.
Anyone, can betray anyone
I somehow expected where the flow of the story is heading. Was it because I have read too much? I don’t think so. It seems like I am my own spoiler.
Let’s talk about my favorite character!
I liked how Mare and Cal met the very first day. In that very moment, I felt that Cal is living a life of luxury and just milling around the Reds to observe them and to understand their situation better. See, I am right, right? This trait of Cal is what I liked about him. He is so compassionate. Maybe at first it was just this pity thing but they became friends and his love for Mare was just there since the beginning.
There were less cheesy moments in the book but it is implied though. There are other reasons on how to express your love to someone. And Cal is doing it just right *giggles*. I hope to read more of CalAre in the sequel. However, it seems like Mare isn’t into him yet. How dare he use him? Betray him. Whyyyyy?
After reading the epilogue, I appreciated the book REALLY in its entirety. *book shimmy*. The chapters has given me highs and lows of feelings and the epilogue has nailed it!
Will there me more of Cal in the sequel , how about Kilorn?
Well, it is for us to find out in the Glass Sword. Are you excited for this, too?
