RED QUEEN by Victoria Aveyard

unknown-1

Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver-blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. There, before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play 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 everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays the only certainty is betrayal.

Comments: I really enjoyed this book. I like the way Mare did not do things the way I would but yet her choices were not unreasonable. There is a huge plot failing and I can't reveal it with out spoiling, but I will say this, if I continue to finish the series and the author does not resolve a certain plot particular, I will un-fan her. It seemed so weird it didn't come to fruition at least in part in book one. So I guess this one is up in the air for me. (I reserve the right to change my plot rating.)
