Red Queen


Aveyard, V. (2015). Red queen. New York: HarperTeen. ISBN: 978-0062310637. Hardcover: $17.99. Also available in paperback, e-book, and audiobook format.

A great equalizer among humans is that we all bleed the same color, but in Mare’s world that’s not actually true. The elite Silvers are so named for their shimmering silver blood. Not only are they captivatingly beautiful (imagine how your skin would look with silver instead of red running through your veins!) but they also have special powers. These powers range from controlling substances like metal or water to other abilities like telekinesis. Their powers make then nigh invincible, and those with normal blood like you and I – the Reds – are subject to their rule, fight in their wars, and working in their cities and palaces.

Mare is one of those Reds, nearing the age when she’ll be drafted into the military. But after a chance meeting with the Prince in disguise, her whole world is turned upside down. She’s taken away to work in the palace and is caught up in a world of politics and intrigue after finding out that she herself has powers nobody expects her to have. But there is corruption hidden in the power of the Silvers, and discontentment among the Reds. Rebellion is brewing. Power is failing. She could be the one to turn the tide and unite the nation as the Red Queen…if she can survive to power games.
