About the book:

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:

This was a buddy read for my discord group. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience reading this book. Victoria Aveyard did a wonderful job with her world building and drawing the reader into this unique world. I also appreciated the magic system that was created. I really felt connected to Mare and felt for her as she was thrown into all the political intrigues and disasters that she experienced. One of the core elements is the obsessive/love triangle between Mare, Cal, and Maven. This plays a huge role in the development of the overall plot. The only real negative that the group and I had was the repetitiveness of the theme that anyone can betray you at any time.
