Waiting on Wednesday #86: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!

This week, I'm waiting on:
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard.

Expected Publication: February 10, 2015.
by: HarperTeen.

Goodreads Synopsis:
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own--an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.

To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard--the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince--and Mare against her own heart.

From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.

Why I'm excited:
Do I actually have to say anything about this one? It sounds AMAZING and exactly like the kind of fantasy I love. Plus I've already heard great things from someone very in the know (can't wait to meet Mare, Suman!) so I'm counting on an awesome read!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I am in love with this cover, and that is the main reason I want it. Haha. I do enjoy fantasy books though so I think I'll have fun with this one.

  2. Hah, yeah I know what you mean! I don't know anyone who isn't highly anticipating it, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it lives up to the build up. I can't believe I have to wait until next year to read it. : ( Awesome pick!!

    Here's My WoW.


I'd love to hear what you think!
