My Rating:4shootingstarrating 

Synopsis (source):

“This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.”

Teaser Tuesday #3

It’s Teaser Tuesday time again! I’m enjoying this a lot because of the fact that it keeps me reading a book a week consistently. This week I’m rereading Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard so that I can finally get around to reading Glass Sword. I definitely need the refresher because it’s been about a year if not longer since I read the first book and I hate going into sequels and not having a clue what is going on because of the fact that it was so long since I read the previous book. Anyway, I’m loving it as much as I did the first time around and I plan on writing up a review for it once I’m finished since I never formally reviewed it. 🙂

I hope you’re all having a lovely Tuesday!
