Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color 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 Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive 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?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

I need to take a breather after the ending of this book. The first half was mostly just them running around from town to town trying not to get caught as they picked up people that are now being called newbloods. The last half of the book was an explosion of the best kind!! Death happiness and one killer ending await those who wish to dive into the pages hat are glass sword. This one will leave in a giant ass book hole from where there is no escape. You will kneel to the awesomeness that Aveyard has brought us and will be counting down the days for the next book.
That's pretty much how I feel. This one we see our beloved character grow into the adults they will be. If they live long enough to get there. We see happiness and sadness and we loose one character that so made me break down into tears. Like really I put the book down and went and ate lunch. I just couldn't go on.
This one has so much entwined in the story that just made it so breathtaking! I fear for mare and cal and their love story. I worry that one of them is going to die or that they are just going to piss each other off and neither of them is going to be able to forgive the other.
This review is just so hard to write there's so much I want to say but I don't want to give anything away!!! It's so HARD!!!!!!
The ending will have you in tears and saying WTF!?!?!? I know I was doing that!! And this is one story that has no real middle book syndrome it's a great continuation and I can't wait for the next one.
