Red Queen


Book #18 Read in 2016
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

This is the first in a ya series.  The Reds are the poor servants and laborers, who are sent to fight a war at eighteen.   The Silvers are the royalty and rich people.  Mare is a red.  She is surprised to find that she has power like a Silver...so is she Red, Silver or both?  Will she survive long enough to find out?   This book had non-stop action, romance and wonderfully written characters.  The second book is in my TBR pile.  High schoolers and adults alike would love this series.

  1. Hi Melissa,

    I am also a member of OTPS -- that's how I found your blog. :)

    I recently finished THE RED QUEEN and liked it a lot. It's starting out so strong, but loses a bit momentum once Mare has arrived at the palace. Besides, her personality can get a bit annoying once in a while. I am still looking forward to reading the second part. I will have to wait for a while, as the library will only buy the German translation -- and that book hasn't been published yet.

    Happy reading,
    Birgit
