Red Queen and Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

queen

                                Red Queen 

Book Summary:   

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

My Review: 

The book starts off in a world run by sliver blood, those who have red blood are commoners and must work to make an living. Mare had an simpler life red life. Getting ready to more on from high school and choose an job that suits her. Life change for her when she bumps into someone who gets her an good job in the palace. During her first stay there she find out that she has lighting powers like sliver blood do. In the end the king and queen things it’s best she hide in plain view as an pretend queen. During her time secrets in the sliver world are release and nothing as it seems. With Mare caught in the middle of it all, can she blend in good enough in the sliver world eye? This books is a quick read, filled with action and secrets  to be revealed, that you must read and find out for yourself. So pick up this book and enter the world of Red and Sliver blood. Happy Reading!!

 

 

                                                         *Spoiler Alert* 

glasssword

                                                       Glass Sword

Book Summary: 

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul

 

 My Reivew:

So Mare is now on the run in this book with an fallen sliver prince. She must depend on the red rebellion for their help and find others out there like her, red blood with silver powers mix in. A war is coming and Mare and Cal are in the middle of it. A bounty on their head and anybody willing to get their hands on it. In the end who can they can trust with their lives? Can Cal a sliver blood be forgiven for his actions as a silver?  In the end you have to find out yourself with this action pack books and an cliffhangers leaving you for more. So Happy Reading!

king

Book Summary: 

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.
