en-Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard review


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.

This book has been on my to be read list for a couple of years now. And I finally got the chance to dive into it. And I have no regrets, I really liked it!

The characters are well written and with lots of details. It has an old but great topic throughout the whole book. Which is: 'poor and rich'. The rich have blood the color of silver and the poor have red blood. The story is so addictive you just can't put it down. It brings along so many questions, and you can't stop untill you find the answers.

And I loved the plottwists. Plottwists are one of my favorite things in books and these ones didn't dissapoint me. They were shockingly good and I can't get over them. 

The story is well written and it easy to get into it. You just can't put it down. I really liked the book, although I think there was something missing. But I'm sure this feeling will go away in the next book.
