Book Review: Glass Sword

General Information:

Pages: 444

Genre: Fantasy/ Dystopia

Publisher: Harper Teen

Series: Red Queen

Synopsis: Red Queen Spoilers Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the colour of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to create 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 instalment 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.

My Thoughts:

Glass Sword was just as good as Red Queen. I loved loved loved this book so so so so so much! The plot picked up just where we left off and threw me into the action. Every time I closed this book, I had to stop and take a breather.

Seriously, if you have not read Red Queen or Glass Sword, you should close this review, go to the book store and buy these books. There was one slow part, where I actually considered putting the book down and picking up another one, but I sucked it up for like, two pages and ended up adoring this book.

My Rating: 5 out of 5
