Red Queen

By: Victoria Aveyard


There are people in the society that are just plain normal and then there are some who are superior to the rest. Imagine a society where we have evolved to having extraordinary gifts or powers depending on our blood color. The reds are commoners, ruled by the silver elite who have god like power. Mare Barrow, a seventeen year old girl, who is a red blood that lives in the poverty stricken stilts with her parents and younger sister Gisa. Bree, Tramy, and Shade, her three older brothers, serve on the front line of the war fought between the northern Kingdom the Lakelands and Mare’s homeland, the Kingdom of Norta.


“I feel the heat of the sparks, running up and down my  body, setting every nerve on fire. It isn’t a bad feeling though. In fact I feel well alive.” Mare Barrow


What I loved best about this book is the major conflict between the reds and the silvers, the humongous plot twist, love triangle, and the betrayals. Many people would enjoy this book because it shows that first impressions can be deceiving and not to trust everything you are told. The next time you are in the library take a look at the Red Queen trilogy.
