Red Queen book review!
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard tells the story from the main character Mare’s point of view. Mare lives in a society divided into two groups by the colour of blood. People with red blood are commoners, ruled by those who have silver blood with god-like superpowers. For Mare, who is seventeen and is red living in the poverty stricken stilts. She doesn’t believe anything will ever change.
This is until one day while she’s with the people she hates most, she discovers she holds a deadly weapon that could change everything.
The King , who is fearful of Mare’s weapon hides her and forces her to marry his younger son. Trapped in a world she has always hated, Mare decides to take the most of her new position to bring down her enemies, from the inside.
I found Red Queen to be an all round exciting book! The main character Mare was really sassy and she was really independent which I liked a lot about her! The start was a little slow to get into I will admit. But that plot twist at the end!
I sometimes found that parts got a little boring, but once they were over something really kickass happened and would make up for the little boring scenes.
The Princes, Maven and Cal were really well built characters, they both had strong roles in the book and their loyalty to their parents and their blood really was an interesting storyline.
Overall, I gave the book a four out of five star rating and would totally recommend to anyone that loves action, 2 cute Princes and sassiness!
