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.
Glass sword was such a good sequel to this dystopian world! This book follows up on Mare and Cal after they almost died in front of everyone. And tensions are very high with everyone. Although tensions are high, Mare has found her brother, whom she thought dead. Even though she’s found family, she has left all her other family behind. But she is determined to help as many people as she can against Marven, and if she has to give up things, she’ll do whatever the cost is.
My personal thoughts on this book was mixed on the characters. A lot of the characters started to show their true self, which can be difficult if you still like the characters from before. But that’s what makes books good though, right? And after reading, I realized they’re showing their true self, which is what’s making tensions high.
As all sequels go in trilogies, the second can tend to be a little boring for me, but nonetheless, it’s still very good. And I definitely recommend this series if you like dystopian futuristic god like worlds. So give this book a read if you like this type!
Keep on reading!!
Much love, Chloe ❤
