Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Book Review, Book Review baby!!! And today we are going to talk about Royals and blood and silver and magic and well, if you have read the title of the blog post you already know which book, right?  Okay, then let's get to it...

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Mare Barrow is seventeen years old and she is poor girl from the Stilts and that makes here a Red girl.  What's a Red girl?  She has red blood and people with red blood are poor people because they don't possess magic powers and therefore they are slaves and workers and for Mare looks like life will never change.  That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace, the place with the people that she hates the most.  The Silvers?  They are the people that have silver blood and that have magic powers, so they have all the power of the world and think they can do whatever they want with the Reds. 

However, things take a turn, when surrounded with Silvers Mare finds out that dispite having Red blood she possesses a deadly power of her own.  One that can destroy the balance of the power.

Fearful of Mare's potential, the Silver's hide her in plain view, declairing her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. 

While in the Silver Palace, Mare finds out about the Red Guard, a resistant group that want to bring down the Silver regime.  Despite knowing that one misstep could lead to her death she decides to work with the Red Guard but soon she starts to find out a lot more about this world of betrayal and lies.  It's not only Reds against Silvers, there are Silvers and against Silvers, prince against prince and Mare's heart is against itself it seems...

SOOO good this book.  The more you read the more you want to read, I just couldn't stop thinking about this book when I wasn't reading it.  Mare was amazing, the world building was good, I wanted more and hopefully we will get it in the next book, which I can't wait to come out.

4 out of 5 stars for sure and I totally recommend reading it if you haven't yet, specially with the second book coming you soon.
