Waiting on Wednesday: Glass Sword (Red Queen #2) by Victoria Aveyard10:00
This week's pick is:
Series: Red Queen #2
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Published February 11th 2016 by Orion
For fans of THE HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT - the thrilling new fantasy novel from Victoria Aveyard, bestselling author of RED QUEEN.
If there's one thing Mare Barrow knows, it's that she's different.
Mare's blood is red - the colour 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 the prince and friend who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by the Silver 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?
Why I'm waiting:
- The ending of Red Queen simply killed me! I was not expecting that twist, and I need to see how the implications play out.
- I was approved for an ARC of this on NetGalley not too long ago, and I'm dying to start it, but I'm also worried that there will be another killer cliffhanger waiting at the end.
