Author: Victoria Aveyard
Expected Publication: February 9th 2016 by HarperTeen
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Synopsis: (Spoilers for Red Queen)
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?
I absolutely loved Red Queen and I am completely excited for the release of this one. Not to mention its beautiful cover!!! And the movie news about Red Queen, I hope it won’t disappoint.
Definitely having a petition for a book signing event of Victoria Aveyard here in the Philippines. Who’s with me?
