Waiting on Wednesday #8: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Hey everyone! So recently I’ve been looking at new books coming out in 2015 (after having seen the TONS of books coming out this September – including ours!) and I stumbled across RED QUEEN by Victoria Aveyard. I’ve decided to feature it this week for WoW, a meme created by Jill at Breaking the Spine

It’s a YA fantasy that sounds amazing! Check out the cover and synopsis via Goodreads:

17878931

 

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.


What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
