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.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

4.5 Stars


Yes I did and here’s why you should too! Although wonderful might not be the right word for it.

Reasons to be excited:

1. It’s High Fantasy with high stakes and a bloody shocking ending!
Yes! I was hooked to the story! My eyes glued to the pages from beginning to end! Make sure you have some time at your hands when you start this one!



2. Though it’s a bit predictable because “anyone can betray anyone”, you still feel ALL THE FEELS!
Throughout the book, Mare hears that anyone can betray anyone and because of that I didn’t trust anyone. And I had my suspicions about people I would normally never suspect. and they all came true. Despite that, I still felt all the feels Mare felt when she was betrayed! It’s pretty intense to be honest. I was like: “YES I KNEW IT! … But why?”



3. It’s easy to root for the main character because she’s awesome!
Mare is a fantastic character! She can be sweet and very loyal, but don’t get on her bad side. Plus she’s an expert pick pocket, which is just the coolest. She’s stubborn and clever and if you mess with her friends and family…


Now make sure you read this book, okay?

Have you read this already or are you planning to?
