Goodreads description--Graceling meets The Selection in debut novelist Victoria Aveyard's sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king's palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?

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.

What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!

  20. I'd love ideally to read my review books in order of release, but that just doesn't happen. I'm a mood reader. Plus I'm a bit rebellious when I feel forced into something. So I just read as I feel like it. :) I hope we both enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Jennifer!

  21. It does have a great cover. And I'm totally one that judges a book by the cover. I don't mean to, but it just happens. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Nicole!
