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, and 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…

There’s much I appreciate in this story. The danger that hangs in the air. The powers that the Silvers have. The face that Mara has a bond to her family; even though her family isn’t major characters, they all play a role. The ending! Oh, my, word! The end, I just can’t put it into words. One of the characters I didn’t trust as the story went on while this ending wasn’t total how I thought it was going to go but this ending wraps up book one however it leaves it open for book two. With many questions answer and others not.
As for other characters, Queen Elara reminded me a bit of a softer version Queen Levana from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Lucas who is assigned as Mare’s guard, is one that I found myself like that parts he was is. Julian one of Mare’s trainers/teacher becomes a close friend of her, I just adore him (and all of his books!)
Over all, I’m dying to read the next book and see were these characters are now. How everyone is dealing with the ending of book one!
