Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army, she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a superhuman ability she didn’t know she had.

Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a budding Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince and Mare against her own heart.

This book has one of the most interesting concepts I have ever read.  From that first sentence in the synopsis alone, I was already fascinated. It vaguely reminds me of Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. And the awesomeness doesn’t end there, I think there’s suppose to be some fantastical elements thrown in here? Like, people with totally cool supernatural abilities?! As always, I am tons excited for this book.

  1. Anything red and queen reminds me a lot of Alice in Wonderland, and I cannot wait to check this out because it looks so deym awesome 😀

  2. Ooooooh, the synopsis really is awesome. I like how she is supposed to be a part of the “inferior people” but find herself possessing powers that would surely change everything she has ever known. Adding this to my TBR for sure!
