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.

Is the enemy of my enemy always my friend?

This book was awesome, it picks off exactly where the last book ended. Cal and Mare barely escaped the arena thanks to the Scarlet Guard. Now they are on the run from a cruel and psychotic king and a manipulative queen.

Glass Sword is action packed, I truly enjoyed the pacing of it. It game breathing room to prepare for what was to come.There's heartbreak, loss and betrayal and some shocking moments.

It feels like a crossover between X-men and the Hunger Games. Mare has changed a lot from the first book. She's not as naive, she's fiercer and stronger but she's also lost herself in the process, She's darker too. She feels there's no one to trust and the weight of it all is crushing her.

Cal is dealing with loss and betrayal he's out of his element and doesn't have a clue how to get afloat. He becomes a crutch of a sort for Mare.

There's a super ultra slow burning romance, completely in the background of the story. This book is a harrowing journey, a solid sequel that takes our characters to dark places while trying to save as many people as the can.

The lines between red and silver get somewhat muddled, pushing Mare to make some brutal decisions.

The ending was somewhat predictable but still beautifully accomplished.

I can't wait to start the next one.

I'm an author/screenwriter who likes books and lists. This site is the nexus of my universe.

I wrote the #1 NYT bestselling series RED QUEEN and my next series, REALM BREAKER, will be out in May 2021.

The genres I'm into include YA, Fantasy, Historical, Adventure, Apocalyptic - if people are dying, I'm buying.
