Staff Reviews


Blood means everything in the kingdom of Norta. Silvers rule with a Godlike presence; each gifted with a special ability or power while the Reds are left powerless; their only purpose is to serve or fight (and die) in the war. 

That is the norm until Mare Barrow, a Red, suddenly discovers that she has a power too. Unfortunately, she finds out the hard way AND in front of a court of Silvers. Now Mare is thrown into a dangerous world of power struggles and rebellion. Part Dystopian, part High Fantasy, Red Queen is one of those books that hooks you in and keeps you riveted until the very last page!

Description


The #1 New York Times bestselling series!

Red Queen, by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyard, is a sweeping tale of power, intrigue, and betrayal, perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series.

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.

Plus don't miss Realm Breaker! Irresistibly action-packed and full of lethal surprises, this stunning fantasy series from Victoria Aveyard, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Red Queen series, begins where hope is lost and asks: When the heroes have fallen, who will take up the sword?
