Books on Our Radar: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The first thing that struck me about Red Queen was the amazing cover. Sometimes less is more and this cover is powerful in its simplicity. A crown dripping blood? Color me intrigued. But then I read the description for this new fantasy trilogy and instantly knew it had to be put on our radar. While the book won’t be released until February 2015, and waiting sucks, but it’s ok it will give us all plenty of time to ponder what this intriguing book has in store.
A thrilling new fantasy trilogy for fans of DIVERGENT and THE HUNGER GAMES.
The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?
