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. A world divided by the colour that you bleed. Red or Silver.
    Red is the colour of commoners, born to serve, and mundane. Silver is the colour of the elite, born to lead, and born with the powers beyond all imaginations, no others alike…or so they thought.
    Mare is a young teenager, trying to make her way through life, without being sent off to war. She steals and stoops to simply feed her family, just like every other red.
    Mare is oblivious to the power she poses, until a night her powers prevail by accident to the entire court of Silvers. The royals shocked and unaware, cage her into the Silver court, claiming her a lost Silver princess, until they find why a red poses the power of a silver.
    Through times of high and low, she navigates through the world of Silvers, knowing that one wrong move could mean her death. Now Mare has entered a game, a game of silver and red. Trust Nobody.
    This is the best book you could ever get your hands on. Such a draw-dropping and descriptive read. Recommend to all, looking for a unique and different read. I mean this book is practically already attached to you, so start reading!


  2. This book was one that made me laugh, cry and just keep reading I could put it down it is the first book of a series of three and the third one came out this year and I am almost done. From the start to the end of the book its action, adventure and even a bit of romance. The book is about a girl called mare and she has lived a life thinking that she was less than what she is until she discovers that she holds a power and that may sound a bit corny but I am one who doesn’t really like fantasy all to much and I thought the book was great. I recommend this book for people aged 11+ and it is really enjoyable and doesn’t drag on like some series do it is fun and intriguing and I think that even if you are not into fantasy to give this one a try.
