“Anyone can betray anyone.”


Mare Barrow lives in a world where a person’s status is defined by the color of their blood. Because Mare has red blood, she is a commoner who lives under the silver blooded rulers of society who possess powers. Mare is struggling to survive and help provide for her family in the Stilts, when she gets a job in the Silver Palace. In a moment of life-or-death she discovers she possesses silver abilities, even though her blood runs red. The Silvers, afraid of what this information would do to the red-blooded masses, hide Mare under a false persona and betrothed her to Prince Maven Calore in order to keep an eye on her. This doesn’t stop her from working from the shadows to help the Red Guard, a red-blooded rebellion against the silver hierarchy. Mare must figure out who she can trust, and if her own decisions will lead to freedom, or get herself killed. Read the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard to see for yourself!


Official Blurb:


This is a world divided by blood—red or silver. 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.
