This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart ...
When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?
For the past few months, there has been news on Goodreads about Sarah J. Maas' book A Court of Mist and Fury and since then I have been dying to see the cover design (y'know because a have a thing for pretty covers hehe). And so yesterday, when it was released I got really excited and thought it was only fair for me to share it to you guys (I'm pretty sure anyone who has Goodreads probably already knows this, so this is for my non-Goodreads people :) )
The Heir by Kiera Cass was really interesting for me to read. The Selection trilogy was held in the perspective of America, a girl participating in the Selection. After reading The Prince from Happily Ever After, I realised that I really wanted-like REALLY wanted a novel in the perspective of someone running the Selection. And guess what? We got one :)
I have read The Selection from a while back and with The Crown coming out soon, I thought I would be a good idea to review it.
