RED QUEEN Book Review
I want to just start by saying this book is TEEN FANTASY/FICTION. If you don’t like teen fiction this book is not for you. Most of you know by now that I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan. I also loved Twilight and many other typical teen novels. I actually walk into the Teen Fantasy section looking for new books!!
If you haven’t tried teen fiction, you should! You are never too old for it. These books are great for a quick read and a good escape.
Red Queen is a novel with wars similar to those in Game of Thrones. You have Reds, Silvers, and Lakelanders. If you are a Red you are basically human (normal). If you are a Silver then you come with magical powers and bleed silver blood. All nobels are of Silver blood and all Silvers have different kinds of magical power. The Silvers send the Reds off to fight against the Lakelanders, so Reds are basically slaves of Silvers.
Marrow, the main character, is a Red. She is preparing to go off to war when she meets a stranger in town (Cal) that gets her a job with the King and Queen.
Something happens that causes Mare to be engaged to one of the princes (I don’t want to tell you what happened because it gives away most of the book.) Mare doesn’t want to be engaged to him, but she is trapped because the Royal Family is threatening her life and the life of her family.
Mare then joins the Scarlet Guard (a secret army made of Reds) to help fight against the Red way of life against the Silvers. No one knows she is in this secret army while she is engaged to the prince.
The book is a mix of a love triangle, rebellion, magic, and so much more! There is also a bad guy in the book and a twist ending!!
Red Queen is the first book of a SERIES and the fourth book just came out! I can’t wait to read #2!
