Book Series: Red Queen, #2
Published: February 9th, 2016
Reading Format: Hardcover
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.
Review & Thoughts
Unlike most people who started this book immediately after it hit the shelves at bookstores, I had to wait a little longer because at the time, I was reading the first book (Red Queen), and loving every minute of that book.
Anyway, onto this book! Glass Sword definitely lived up to the hype, for me anyways. This book still made me angry at some parts, but I just love these characters so much. That ending has left me wanting the next book so much.
