The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

O the feels!!! Reading this for the second time around was a blast. I took my time somewhat and well I am just in love with this book as I was the first time. The society that Mare lives in is so breath taking and the story pulls you in that you just can't help to love it! I spent most of the book yelling NO NO DONT TRUST HIM!!! If you have read this book you know who I'm talking about.
The ending of this still blew my mind even knowing what was going to happen. This is one of the few books that although I did kinda think what happened was going to happen. It didn't have me sold on the idea. So in the end it was still a really good/bad surprise. (sorry trying not to spoil anything)
I really can't wait for book two which I'm starting right after I post this. (currently its May 26th if your wondering)
This is a must read!
