Waiting on Wednesday #73: ‘Red Queen’ by Victoria Aveyard


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, Hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Red Queen

Victoria Aveyard

Red Queen Trilogy #1

Publication Date:
February 10th, 2015


Graceling meets The Selection in debut novelist Victoria Aveyard’s sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king’s palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?

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 don’t want to fall for the hype of The Red Queen. Books that are so hyped seem to turn out the worst for me. I will probably wait three months after its release and then see what everyone else is saying before buying. Is it just me or does The Red Queen sound like Pawn but with colors (silvers and reds) instead of numbers?
