Book Review: Red Queen (Red Queen, Book 1), by Victoria Aveyard

Mare Barrow has Red blood. Reds live in poverty and serve the Silvers, who are superior to them because Silvers have supernatural abilities. So it comes as quite a shock when Mare discovers she has powers, too. Soon she’s whisked away to the palace where she must pretend to be a Silver. The cost at anyone finding out her true identity is a huge price to pay.

This is a young adult book that contains:

• Violence (fighting in arenas, shattering a young girl’s hand in punishment, executions, torture, slapping, forcing someone to murder their own father, an explosion, using superpowers to wreak chaos and hurt others, references to a war and deaths)
• Profanity (b*tch, d*mn, and h*ll)
• Kissing
• Drinking

Red Queen is a fast-paced fantasy debut that explores the idea of people being treated differently just because something about them is different (i.e. their blood). The ending is inconclusive as this is the first book in a trilogy.

  1. I wasn't thrilled with this book. I was totally annoyed at the romance and I thought the book was too predictable. Plus it just seemed like lots of elements of other books thrown together. I wanted it to be more unique. Of course I will read on because the ending does leave it quite open.
