Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Victoria Aveyard

Narrated By: Amanda Dolan

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: February 2015

Duration: 12 hours 42 minutes


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.

    I'm not a huge fan of reading but I love this book. At first I was reading it here and there but once it got good I was starting to read it everyday.

    great story. the political and cultural issues are very relatable to today's current real life problems. story was a bit predictable (saw the 2 biggest plot twists miles away), but that's okay; they're common plot twists that are used because they make a good story. didn't particularly like the narrator too much but the story carried me through.

  • Maria Loomis

    I was extremely disappointed as this story is (in my opinion) too similar to the Hunger Games. I did listen to the entire thing, but the parallels were irritating.

  • Sara Zampa

    A bit slow to start, but overall a very entertaining listen! The writing isn't the best I've come across, but it got the job done. Great twist at the end!

  • Katie Reed

    This took me a while to get into since I wasn't over my last empire take over series. Once I got into it I really enjoyed the book and never saw the twists in the plot coming. Can't wait to read the next book.
