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.
That cover. Do you SEE that cover? OMG! It's just so amazing. There is beauty in simplicity, that's for sure. I'm so glad they didn't go overboard with the cover like some fantasy novels tend to do. This final product is amazing!
To be completely honest, I don't know why I've got so many feels for this book, but I do. I'm so damn excited for this one to come out and for me to love it. I'm going to flail and flail. Oh fantasy books how you are my kryptonite. I remember being that little kid who read all three Inkheart books at third grade.
I can already feel it. There's going to be so much excitement and kickassery in this book. I'm just so flipping excited!
But just to leave with a positive note, here are a few pics that represent my feelings right now.
