“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
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?
First of all I LOVE the cover of this book, it makes you wonder what is going to happen in the story, at least it does for me. I think it’s a brilliant follow up cover from Red Queen. Now I’m waiting because I need to see what happens to Mare and Cal, and if Maven really has lost his mind completely.
