Mare Barrow is a Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts. Living under the oppressive Ironfist regime, Mare and her people—the Reds—are a caste apart. Her life is simple: to survive, she must constantly watch her back for the redcoats that patrol their slums, steal their food and enforce their laws. But when Mare and her best friend Darrow discover that they’re both being monitored by a shadowy organization calling itself The Silver Guardians, they hatch an escape plan.
Roe Barrow’s Red world is a place of poverty, violence, and superstition. A mother raises Mare she barely knows, fearing the mysterious and powerful Silver crowd. But she learns that her life may be about to change with the appearance of a new boy at school who seems mysteriously drawn to her. Her first friendship with the aristocratic Rojen–a boy whose family name is despised by all but his father–confuses her even more. And when an act of betrayal leaves her without one friend, Mare faces an impossible choice: which side will she choose?
Mare Barrow is a Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts of Four. When her beloved mother dies, she leaves the island to sell cloth at the Palace, where her mother worked before she died. Mare soon learns she can control moss and uses it to make dresses for herself and others in Four. When this unusual talent is discovered, Mare is torn between helping her family or pleasing the Silver elite who rule over them.
About Red Queen Book
This is a world divided by blood—red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite possessing god-like superpowers. And nothing will ever change to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts.
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, 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.
