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.… (more)

Good premise but lousy execution. ( )

Giving this 3 and a half stars only because; reading it as an adult I found it boring for the larger half of the book. That being said, it is a fantastic dystopian genre novel and has some top-tier plot twists. If you need a lighter read that still grabs your attention by the end and draws you into the next books, I'd give this a try. ( )

I loved this book! I found the plot comparable to The Hunger Games at every turn, while still being original enough to be fast paced and exciting. I'm definitely going to be going out to get book two. ( )

A very light snack of a book, and on occasion, just a little too sweet.


The entire time I was reading this book, all I could think was Mockingjay, Mockingjay, Mockingjay. Except it wasn't, IMO, as good. The romance didn't work for me--mostly because there was never any reason given why. The plot was way too simple and I never bought the whole 'fool everyone with makeup' bit--nor the you only get a couple of days training how to be royal bit.

What almost made me 2 star this one was that I saw every plot twist coming. Down to the 'resurected' brother. After some thought, I don't know if I would classify the book as much YA as grade school. Once I decided it fit grade school, it deserved the 3.

I'll read the next books, but by no means will I again pay hardcover prices. This will be a paperback purchase for me next time. ( )
