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.
I love the cover. I love the title. I love the synopsis. I love the genre. I love everything about this book already! But for now, I’m going to fangirl over the cover. The simplicity, the tagline, the blood. Everyone, a moment of silence to appreciate the savage yet elegant blood dripping from the crown—headpiece? I would love to frame this cover up and display it in my room. I would also love to get my hands on this book right now.
Which book are you waiting on this week?

I don’t believe this isn’t coming out until February :( The book I’m most looking forward to right now is Revival by Stephen King. I’m a teensy bit of a fanatic when it comes to him.
lol, I totally agree about the cover. Whoever created it should win an award or something. And I’m so excited to get my hands on this book that I’m twitchy with it! lol. How am I going to wait till next year?!?! Such a great pick!!
