Book Review: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard


Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Fantasy; 383 pages 

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

Summary: Reds are nothing compared to Silvers. Silvers are like gods. Mare is a Red. She is about to turn 18 and, because she doesn’t have a job, she is going to be sent off to the war. That is until she picks the pocket of the wrong person … or you could say the right person. She is caught but she goes unpunished. Not only is she not punished but this stranger, Cal, gets her a job working at the summer palace. Then an accident occurs and Mare discovers she is not the simple Red she thought she was. She has powers just like the Silvers. 

Review: I thought this book lived up to most of its hype. I thought it was very well written, had a very interesting story line, and I thought the characters were as real as they could be. I do wish there was a bit more action in the book but overall, I was very happy with it. I would definitely recommend this book. 

Next up is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.

  1. I’ve been wanting to read this book and I have it on my bookshelf, but just haven’t been able to yet. Hopefully soon! I’ve heard so many good things about it. 🙂
