Red_Queen_book_cover.jpgRed Queen (HarperTeen, 2015) by Victoria Aveyard takes us into an interesting and unfair world of those born with silver blood, privilege, and powers, and those with red blood who mostly have hardship.

A Red, Mare Barrows, like her older brothers did, is headed to fight in the Silver's war when she turns eighteen. The only way she can help her family now is by pick pocketing, whereas her younger sister Gisa has a talent with sewing and even works for the Silvers. When Mare's best friend Kilgorn only has a week until conscription, she's determined to find a way to help him escape. Her search leads her on a path that changes her whole life.

There are surprises, death, betrayal, loyalty, romance, sorrow, and more. Mare is definitely a heroine to care for.

This book is the first in a series that includes some novellas. Read the details here. Meanwhile, I'm off to order the second book. Oh, and by the way, the series is currently being translated into 37 languages!
