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.
5 amazing stars!!!
What did I just read?
This sequel to Red Queen was breathtaking and brilliant!
So much happened over the course of this book and I loved every heart pounding moment as I dangled the whole time on the edge of my seat.
So many cool abilities were uncovered as Mare, Cal, and her friends try to outrun Maven and gather together Reds who have Silver abilities.
Cal has moved firmly into my heart and I want him to end up with Mare desperately!
I loved Cal in Red Queen, but my soft spot for Maven had me wanting him and Mare to end up together, but after that CRAZY ending, that ship has sunk!
OK, I can’t not talk about that fairly big twist so if you don’t want to know don’t read the next bit:
Glass Sword was EPIC! A solid sequel to Red Queen. It left me desperate for book 3 and the novellas which have recently be released together as ‘Cruel Crown.’
I can’t wait to see how all this is going to end.
