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?
Round of applause, please.

Bravo, Aveyard! You have done it again.
'Red Queen' remains one of my favourite books and so to say I was nevervous to begin this long awaited sequel is a bit of an understatement. As an avid reader, unboxing his surprise delivery from Orion, I was ecstatic and filled with an adrenaline to find an ARC of 'Glass Sword' in my hands. I am not ashamed to say that I found myself dancing around my house sining to myself. I can honestly say that I think that this was the only time I moved for the next two days as I devoured this book.
Not a moment in this book do I feel lacked in anyway. It will have you hooked and, yet again, I am obsessed with the world and characters Aveyard has created.
Okay, so lets just take a moment to appreciate the fact that Aveyard has conjured some of the best characters in YA literature for a second... MARE! So this is a spoiler free review as always, but I have to say that she is feaking bad ass in this book! I find it so easy to fall in love with her and seeing her character develope- in both good ways and bad -in 'Glass Sword', was thrilling, for I cannot wait to see where Aveyard takes her characterin book three.
When I posted about receiving this book on our Instagram I found my comments with a few comments saying how they were not too keen on first book, so to any of you feeling that way, I say go and get 'Glass Sword' and then come and tell me you are still not obsessed with these books, because I promise you will enjoy it! The characters and world develope beyond what I imagined after the first book.
There is so much action and so many brethtaking moments amongst the pages of 'Glass Sword', it will have you laughing one minute, crying in another, and have you falling out your chair in the next.
I am definitely going to be rereading both 'Red Queen' and 'Glass Sword' this month purely because I cannot get enough of this world!
Praise, Victoria Aveyard!
