Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I seriously couldn't put this one down, it grabbed my attention right from the start and I seriously loved it entirely.
In fact after I finished reading it, I went back to work at the library and told everyone in my opinion it's the new Hunger Games / Divergent.
I know, that is really saying a lot, but it is seriously that good.
Mare Barrow is a 17 year old girl who has grown up as a Red her entire life. That means, her blood is red and she has grown up in The Stilts and will always be working in poverty and always under the Silvers control and is segregated against because of her blood color.
The Silvers, have silver blood. They are like the God's, and along with that have their own kind of powers. They rule over the Red's, they also make all the rules.
Mare Barrow, thought she knew her life was never going to change. That was until the day she finds herself working in the Silver palace. Then out of nowhere discovers she has a power of her own, a power that no Red is or should posses. A power that could be greater than most Silvers, but also one that if found out could get her killed.
Thrust into a new life, that she is forced to hide deadly secrets, and pretend to be something she is not. A secret that if found out, would surely be the end of her life as well as her families.
I know this review is probably not the most enticing, but I didn't want to accidentally ruin any of the plot twits with giving you too much information before you read it. Nothing worst than reading a spoiler!
Red Queen, is power and destiny with plot twist after plot twist topped off with lots of lies, spies and betrayal. Victoria Aveyard weaves an incredible story, with fabulous writing that if you find it to be anything like I did, you'll hardly be able to put this down! I highly recommend this book!
FYI: I have read that the book was picked up by Universal and the movie rights have been bought. It is in production, but no release date or other information is out on that yet. YAY AWESOME!
