Review

In The Red Queen Mare is just a normal teenage girl who will soon be drafted into the war in which her older brothers are fighting in. Her country is separated into two main groups Silvers, which are the upper class citizens, and the Reds, who are pretty much their servants and do everything for the Silvers. At least that is what Mare thought until she became a servant in the palace and discovered some unnatural powers that only silvers should have, definitely not Reds.


The way that Victoria Aveyard wrote her book by using unexpected plot twists and cliffhangers, I didn’t find it at all difficult to read her book from front to back in the time period that I did. The storyline moved smoothly and had a realistic but dystopian/ fantasy like feel to it. The way that Mare’s personality was set up, in my eyes, was like a normal teenage girl who always got what she want and over reacted over the smallest of things. I was intrigued by the plot and recommend this book to anyone who has a taste for some realistic fiction/ dystopian/ fantasy books.
