Review: Red Queen

Red Queen
Victoria Aveyard
From Goodreads: 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...
My Review : I really enjoyed this book. At first it was hard to get into but I continued because I do not DNF books. This book seem to drag in the beginning, but when the action starts it is amazing and fast paced. You also see were all the detail from the previous chapters works into the story. I enjoyed the twists and turns this book takes. Sometimes I found myself pulled into the story because of the wonderful world building and the characters. The supporting characters are just as strong as the main character and grow more important as the story continues. I can't wait for the next book in the series to see how the riveting story continues.
