My teaser this week is from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

“I will never make the mistake of loving you ever again."
"So you choose him?"
That's all this ever was. Jealousy. Rivalry. All so shadow could defeat the flame.

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.

  1. I read the first book in this series and enjoyed it - are you enjoying this one? My TT this week is a far future murder mystery -

  2. I sure am, although I thought this was the first book in the series. Hmm.. I'll have to check. I know there are prequels to this series. I'm going to read those last though. ;-) Thanks for stopping by. I'm about to hop over to your blog now. :-)

  3. Sounds like someone's been betrayed. This one is probably not for me, but I hope you're enjoying it.

    1. It's been interesting so far. I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Thank you for visiting :)

  4. You just reminded me how much I wanted to read this one. Have to find it on my Kindle!

    My TT from Dumpster Dying

    1. It's been on my TBR for a while. I finally got around to it :) Thanks for visiting!

  5. What dangerous webs we weave. You never know who you can trust. I avoided this series because of the hype (I'm anti-hype), but it looks to be something I would enjoy.

    1. I don't pay much attention to the hype either way.. I just read what sounds good to me. I feel like I'd miss something otherwise. :-) Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Not my usual read, but this one does sound tempting. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

    1. I've been pretty entertained by it so far. :-) Thank you for stopping by too :)
