Synopsis: The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?
OUR THOUGHTS: The cover of RED QUEEN quickly lured us in and the synopsis hooked our curiosity! Two classes going up against each other, one with powerful abilities (the Silvers), one stricken with poverty and enslaved (the Reds) already promises an intense story. Throw in a girl who is born with special abilities but belongs to the Reds and has to sneak into enemy camp in order (the Silvers) to learn how to master her power and we're already marking our calendar till it's release! Throw in a hot prince and a war between classes on the brink and we're more than set to go! Definitely gonna be checking out RED QUEEN!
