If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.
I started reading this book four days back and it’s wasn’t an easy one to complete.I was reading it along with rebel of the sand which was around 300 pages and i read that in a flash.But this one time taking cause it has so much action right from the starting.I liked red queen so much and i was eagerly waiting for reading this one. and the wait was worth.It has so much action,adventure,drama,betrayals it’s amazing.As you recall Red Queen‘s tragic ending where shade(mare’s brother) and scarlet guard saved cal and mare from Maven’s death arena.Glass sword started from where red queen ended the action didn’t stop but it’s level upgraded.Maven’s unstoppable efforts to kill cal and mare increases.Mare’s got a new mission-To find all people like her and shade (red and silver) which they call newbloods and protect them from maven.They are slowly forming a new team of newbloods.
This book can have a second name “Betrayals”.It has so many betrayals that i can’t trust the next new character who comes into play.Their are so many and new characters and love how victoria manages to make them all stand alone so gracefully.
About the love triangle between Cal, Mare and Kilron it just became more complicated.One side Mare think that kilron is his responsibility and she have to save him from everything and on the other hand she don’t want cal to go away.He’s the only person she trust and the only person who understand her and her powers.Even though cal knows he has no place in the scarlet guard and mostly everyone hates him cause he’s a silver but he stick with them for mare and for killing maven.
And the ending Hell! the ending is so damn good.I just can’t wait for another book.I want it now.I always hate this part when i love the book so much but have to wait a whole year for the next one.This series is just getting better.Well i felt really bad for the one’s who die and the ending i don’t wanna spoil the ending, cause it’s the great part.
I’ll give this book 5/5 stars and can’t wait for another one.Love you Victoria Ayeyard.
Thank you for reading!
