This week my pick is…….

redqueencoverwow14Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

Release Date: March 26, 2015

Summery from Goodreads:

Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn’t know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into 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 her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

Why I am excited:

I love the idea that the color of your blood says where you are in society. Plus I love it when a heroine’s standing in front of a group of people who think they are better then her and she turns out to have power and shocks them all. Other then that I also love a good rebellion.

What is your pick this week?

Happy Reading
