Page 56:
     "Walsh hurries me along, pushing a tray of glittering cups into my hands. Surely these things can buy my freedom and Kilron's, but the Hall is guarded at every door and window. I could never slip by so many officers, even with all my skills."


Synopsis:
     "The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.
     To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.
     Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of
those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.
     But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?"

  1. I keep seeing this book everywhere! I can't bring myself to pick it up though. It doesn't seem that interesting from the synopsis. How are you liking it though? Would you recommend it?

    1. Im about half way through. It's pretty good. A little generic at times, but I am enjoying it. I think it's worth picking up, if you can find it at a library, if you're unsure if you'll like it.

    1. I've heard it compared Red Rising by Pierce Brown, and that it was a little better. I haven't read that book yet, but I want to.

    1. It takes a couple chapters to really get interesting. But It's worth reading.
