Book Review - Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen
(Red Queen, #1)
By Victoria Aveyard
Release date - 10th February, 2015
Published by - HarperTeen

 This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

My Review:  

  Loved this story. Due to Christmas it took me longer to read than I wanted, I was so glad to be able to pick the book back up and get back into it.

Victoria Aveyard has created a world that's split into to two, Reds and Silvers. Silvers being the superior they were the ones in charge. Action was non stop, innocent people dying, reds starving and being sent off to join the war, things were grim and needed to change.

If you enjoyed the Hunger games or even divergent, then this book will be right up your alley.

An addictive read with lovable characters, a story not easily forgotten. I'm heading over the Amazon right now to buy book 2, cause I just need to find out what's going to happen next.
