First off, I was honestly shocked that this one here took me almost 7 days to finish. But that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. Anyways…
Yes, Red Queen shocked me with the betrayals and the lies. I loved the fact that my random predictions didn’t even come close the truth. I love a book that surprises me. What’s worse that a predictable fate/ending, right?
Glass Sword, though, was just as breath-taking.
The time it took me to finish this was due to the intensity and complexity of the stunning world Victoria created. It actually takes an effort to immerse yourself in such a book. And I found Glass Sword way harder to read than Red Queen. It feels like despite the time I’ve granted to reading this book, there’s a lot of stuff I still didn’t provide much attention to, but would love to. This is the kind of series you’d read at least 3 times to understand. And you’d still discover more and more every time you read them.
I didn’t realize how much I missed un-contemporary books until now. I was so used to reading foreseeable/unsurprising books that I forgot how many good books there are out there that don’t fail to sweep you off your feet and surprise you. So I’m glad I picked up this one.
Re-reading this series will be inevitable. So until next time 🙂 Xx
PS: Since everyone is announcing whose team they’re on, I’m on
TEAM CAL BABY!!
If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control 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 installment 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.
