This book is yet another YA novel I devoured in just a few nights. Victoria Aveyard’s novel Red Queen is a refreshing take on the young adult dystopian society genre. In this book you get it all, Kings and Queens, love and betrayal, struggle and my favorite… revolution.
I feel in love with the main characters Mare and Cal, not so secretly rooting for their underdog romance. I even found myself talking to them… “Mare! How can you be so blind!” Ooh, but that’s what makes this book so good! You think and feel exactly what Mare Barrow’s feels, on her rollercoaster through friendships, death, being red, being silver, being… Mare.
The last pages leave my heart aching, not just for the main characters, but for the fact I’ll have to wait for the sequel!
I give this book a 4.5 out of 5.
