Red Queen 1

Power is a Dangerous Game

(15)

Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but a twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers an ability she didn’t know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into 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, her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

Rezension
"A sizzling, imaginative thriller, where romance and revolution collide, where power and justice duel. It's exhilarating. Compelling. Action-packed. Unputdownable." USA Today
Portrait
Victoria Aveyard wuchs im Osten der USA auf, in einer Kleinstadt in Massachusetts. Von dort zog sie an die Westküste, um in Los Angeles an der University of Southern California Drehbuchschreiben zu studieren. Sie hat ein Faible für Geschichte, für Explosionen und für taffe Heldinnen - und schreibt am liebsten Bücher, in denen sie alles drei kombinieren kann.

Those born with red blood are destined to serve the Silver elite who all have special powers that make them stronger than the Reds. When it is discovered that Mare, a girl born with red blood, also holds some special abilities she is focred to live in the royal Palace - and under the watchful eyes of the king, queen and all the Silver nobles. Despite her position she decides to help the rising rebellions - but she should never Forget one of the first advices given to her at the court: don't trust anyone! I have to say: wow. I was really captured by this story. It reminded me of the Selection series by Kiera Cass just with more action and supernatural powers. It was really interesting to find your way in this new world that Aveyard created. And I love that every character has not only a good but dark side too. Like Aveyard described in her book, even the reader should be aware that you can trust no character so it's always full of surprises. A very promising debut novel and I can't wait till the sequels will be published. For readers above the Age of 14.

Beautiful book, amazing story!

Mare Barrow lives in a world where your blood rules your status in the society. The ones with silver blood running through them stand at the top. They are the kings and queens, the lords and counts. They are the government. And they have powers. Some can control water,... Mare Barrow lives in a world where your blood rules your status in the society. The ones with silver blood running through them stand at the top. They are the kings and queens, the lords and counts. They are the government. And they have powers. Some can control water, some metal, some are able to read your mind and others can control your mind. Mare and her family have red blood therefore they are not worth living in palaces and castles. All those who have red blood belong to the lower classes. Altough Mare doesn't have silver blood she discovers that she has powers too. Strong powers. Powers that shouldn't belong to her. Powers that will endanger her family, her friends and even her own life. Suddenly Mare finds herself surrounded by strangers, Silvers that she once hated. In this novel everything comes together. The story spins around conspiracies, love, danger, violence and powers neither Mare nor the Silvers can understand. I loved reading this book. Although there were aspects that seemed familiar to other novels it also was a whole new experience.I really have to re-read this book before the sequel comes out in February 2016. And I can say as much about this book: It will blow your mind!

"Red Queen" is the first installment of a new fantasy series by up-and-coming young author, Victoria Aveyard. In Mare's world there are two kinds of people: Silvers and Reds. While Reds are average people who are treated pretty much like slaves, Silvers possess extraordinary magical abilities and have to be treated like Gods. If those powers are tied to the color of one's blood though, how come Mare discovers that she's able to control lightning? Surely, the Silvers won't be happy about that revelation... "Red Queen" is an entertaining read with amazing charaters and a great - although not entirely new - plotline. I loved Mare's attitude and the fact that she's no poor-me kind of girl. Also, you just have to love to hate those villains. Even though I found the story to be quite predictable at times, I still very much enjoyed this book and am eager to read its sequel. I recommend this book to fans of "The Bone Season", "Divergent" and the like.
