Even before it was released in February 2015, the book had taken the literary world by storm. People were talking about it, recommending it and setting even dates and schedule for Red Queen reading sessions in their book clubs. So it was no brainer that it opened to a mass audience appeal. The book is a dystopian novel high of fanstasy and paranormal quotient and is written by Victoria Aveyard
Red Queen takes place in a fantasy world where people are segregated based on the color of their blood. Citizens with red blood are servants to those born with silver blood. Those lucky enough to have silver blood are gifted with supernatural abilities and rule the land as royalty. Protagonist Mare Barrow was born with red blood, but a mutation grants her electricity-based powers. To save her family, she must assume the role of a long lost princess while secretly plotting a revolution.
Official Synopsis of the book
The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?
