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 highly awaited sequel for the book that blew my mind and rip my heart into pieces and my oh my, the sequel is just as insane… especially that ending *cries*.
Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard is a book that was so wonderfully written, every scene is vividly discussed and described with such precision that made me take a moment to put down the book and tell myself that I’m reading a book and not watching a movie! Amazing amazing writing, my imagination is on fire! There’s too much intensity on every page that had my heart beating so fast and literally has me sitting at the edge of my seat; great story, amazing writing.
Victoria Aveyard must’ve been the long lost grand daughter of George R. R. Martin because danm, her book kept on stabbing my feel and ruthlessly murdered it with “that ending”. So much praise at this book, I am now literally at loss of words.
I rate it:
