Goodreads Summary:

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. 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.


I'm not a very big Fantasy reader and the only fantasy I do read is Urban Fantasy. So I think this will be a little treat because it's been categorised into both Fantasy and Dystopian, which I'm starting to notice a lot of Fantasy is. The one thing that drew me into wanting reading this book is the Cover. It's absolutely beautiful and I have a feeling that this might just be a very big book next year. I already know so many people who are dying to read this book and I'm the same. If I can get my hands on an ARC copy then I will, but if not then I'll just buy it when it comes out.
The premise sounds so good! It's a little cliché with Fantasy, but I think this could be some take on Fantasy and the idea of war. I love how the world is divided by blood and that she's a common thief. I'm hoping this book lives up to the standards that I have for it, if not then I will be disappointed.
What book/s are you waiting to be released?


  1. This is very near the top of my TBR for next year (nothing can topple The Orphan Queen!). It looks absolutely amazing, and I can't wait to get my hands on it :D

    1. I completely agree with you. I'm so excited for The Orphan Queen, it sounds great!
