The #1 New York Times bestselling series! The electrifying second installment in the Red Queen series has all the drama, intrigue, and steamy romance that made it a #1 New York Times bestseller. 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? Perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series, Glass Sword is the high-stakes follow up to the #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen. And don't miss War Storm, the thrilling final book in the bestselling Red Queen series!
"Aveyard certainly has a flair for the dramatic... The action hits the ground running and doesn't stop until after the last page is turned." School Library Journal
Victoria Aveyard wuchs im Osten der USA auf, in einer Kleinstadt in Massachusetts. Von dort zog sie an die Westküste, um in Los Angeles an der University of Southern California Drehbuchschreiben zu studieren. Sie hat ein Faible für Geschichte, für Explosionen und für taffe Heldinnen - und schreibt am liebsten Bücher, in denen sie alles drei kombinieren kann.
