Okay, that cover is CREEPY. But...I can't help staring at it.

When I first saw the cover, I thought it was going to be about Wonderland's Red Queen, so I immediately wanted to know more.

It's not.

It is, however, full of royalty. And it's fantasy, and you know how my heart beats faster when a good fantasy idea makes itself known.

And this summary...just, just....look!

I can't wait to read this one next year!


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.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?

  4. I thought the same thing to about it being an wonderland retelling, but you are right the cover is creepy those for some reason are the ones that attract me.

  5. I'm excited to read this one as well! The blurb sounds fantastic. I'm only hoping that we don't get a silly love triangle because that would suck.
    Lovely pick! :)

    Our WoW!

  13. Oh, I guess I just assumed this one was about the Queen from Wonderland too! I guess I hadn't really read the blurb before now, heh. Well, nevermind because this still looks and sounds so awesome! And yeah, I get the same way when I set my eyes upon what is sure to be a good fantasy read!

  14. Another I'm seeing everywhere, gosh this sounds good :D

  15. Yessss! Awesome pick, such an great cover. I was actually thinking of making my WoW this week, but decided to save it for later, haha. But yes, it sounds amazing, and yay for fantasy!
    Thanks for sharing & stopping Bookmunchies (:

  16. Oh yes, this one is definitely on my radar. That cover is kinda icky what with all the blood dripping, but I have to admit it's striking! Red Queen sounds like it has the makings of a wonderful traditional fantasy read, so hopefully the author can pull it off. *crosses fingers*
