Red Queen (Red Queen Trilogy #1) by Victoria Aveyard
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?
Hm. What did I think about this book? I loved the first half of it. I got completely drawn into this world, and could not stop reading. I wanted to know more about the characters, and what was going to happen to them. It was very intriguing. I also liked the friendship and romance aspects of the book. They weren't the main focus, but I liked it. It kept me interested.
Then, as the book continued I started to lose interest. It started to feel like it was dragging on and on. I know this isn't an especially long book by any means, but it definitely felt that way. I started to become bored by the characters. The storyline was moving along, but it was moving slowly.
This was a book that I was extremely excited to read, and it just seemed to let me down a little bit. That being said, the end was very good. The ending hooked me, and now I cannot see what happens next in this trilogy. While this book wasn't my favorite, I know there are many people who do and will love this book. Give it a try!
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
