The first novel in the #1 bestselling RED QUEEN series by Victoria Aveyard. 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 . . . _________________________________ Read the international bestselling RED QUEEN series in full: Book 1: RED QUEEN Book 2: GLASS SWORD Book 3: KING'S CAGE Book 4: WAR STORM Book 5: BROKEN THRONE (AN EXCLUSIVE RED QUEEN COLLECTION)

  1. Blir sämre ju fler böcker du läser
    Emma, 16 november 2021

    Första boken var bra. Köpte resterande i serien. Blev gradvis sämre och sämre för varje bok. Jag ångrar så att jag läste dem. Huvudkaraktären är verkligen svår att tycka om.

  2. Överraskande bra!
    Thea, 28 augusti 2021

    I början tyckte jag den var väldigt lik boken The Selection, vilket kan vara både positivt och negativt. Men sen blev jag väldigt överraskad!
