Red Queen (Red Queen #1)

This is a world divided by blood - red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. 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....

Red Queen (Red Queen #1) Reviews

  • Regan

    3.5, over hyped but entertaining enough.

  • l a i n e y

    Time moves slowly when you're waiting for something good.


    The fact that Aveyard just bashed her own book, in her own book either means she's a real riot and cleverly self-deprecating OR she really had no self-awareness. Judging from the protagonist in her story, I'd lean on the latter.

    “I am finally learning my lesson. Anyone can betray anyone.”




    Ohhh Goddd!! What a plot twist.

    In the entire book I was like:

    hmmm team Cal. No!! Team Maven.. Hmm Team Cal.. Team Maven.. Team Cal&Maven :P

    And then:



    I did not see that coming.. Julian was so right!!!

    "He is his mother's son.”




    Why???Why?? Why did he do that to us??I loved him..



    “I told you to hide your heart once. You should have listened.”

    This book didn't start out terribly.

    I mean, come on . . . royals with superpowers? And a heroine from amongst the downtrodden servant class? Okay, yes, that does sound kind of familiar, especially considering that said downtrodden heroine is a Red, but beyond that I didn't feel like there were many similarities. And as much as I love Red Rising and Golden Son , I would jump all over it if I thought this book was a copycat.

    BUT. Sold as I was (at first), the heavy-hand

    The only thing that serves to distinguish [Reds], outwardly at least, is that Silvers stand tall. Our backs are bent by work and unanswered hope and the inevitable disappointment with our lot in life.


    "Backs bent by work" was sufficient to get the point across. "Unanswered hope" lent poignancy. BUT "the inevitable disappointment" blah, blah, turned a statement that could have been a powerful illustration into overkill.

    Was this an isolated incident? *snorts*

    Hey, lady! This concept:



    It's a good one. FYI.

    And that wasn't the only problem:

    1. I hadn't given much thought to why I typically crave bloodthirstiness from my heroines. Previously, when it was an issue, it was in regards to only two types of characters: those who stepped up, and those who didn't.

    Turns out there's a third type.

    She who makes the hard decision:

    "Are you with us, Mare Barrow?" he says, his hand closing over mine. More war, more death, Cal said. But there's a chance he's wrong. There's a chance we change it.

    My fingers tighten, holding on to Will. I can feel the weight of my action, the importance behind it.

    "I'm with you."

    "We will rise," he breathes, in unison with Tristan. I remember the words and speak with them. "Red as the dawn."

    In the flickering candlelight, our shadows look like monsters on the walls.


    Dithers over that decision:

    "Children." The words rip out of me. "He's a father."


    (Damn right, he is. And a husband, and a son, and a grandson, and maybe an uncle and a nephew, too. THEY ALL ARE, you daft cow.)

    Then sticks her head in the sand like a fraking ostrich after the decision is carried out:

    All together, twelve died last night, but I refuse to learn their names. I can't have them weighing on me . . .


    I've said before that if you're going to be an assassin, you need to own it.

    I'm adapting that statement: if you're going to kill someone for the "greater good," you need to be decisive about it. And if you're having legitimately conflicted thoughts, then maybe you shouldn't be killing anyone. But regardless, YOU TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS.

    You don't go all Scarlett O'Hara and say, "I'll think about that tomorrow." *flutters hands delicately*

    You know why? B/c Scarlett O'Hara would make a damn terrible assassin, that's why.

    And Mare Barrow makes an equally terrible freedom fighter. She's this BAFFLING combination of ruthlessness, pragmatism, compassion, self-entitlement, and poor self-esteem that causes her to constantly second guess herself.

    Beyond that . . . I'm not sure how down I am with the cause.

    It's one thing to kill in the heat of battle or to premeditatedly take out a Bad Guy, but to play god, picking and choosing who will die b/c their death will create more chaos than that-person-over-there . . .?

    *frowns and squints*

    The whole scenario sat poorly with me. But my reasons for being uncomfortable were totally different than Mare's, so instead of bonding with her, I wanted to smack her.



    Sometimes MCs make mistakes. They're supposed to learn from those mistakes--that's what humanizes them, that's what spurs character growth--but Mare never takes a hard look at herself. She stays almost completely two-dimensional, and I say almost, b/c she's too selfish to be truly flat.

    2. Then there's (if you haven't started noticing it already) the melodrama:

    My hands wipe at my eyes, though my tears are long lost in the rain, leaving behind only an embarrassingly runny nose and some black makeup. Thankfully, my silver powder holds. It's made of stronger stuff than I am.


    Crying . . . in the rain. Then comparing herself . . . to MAKEUP . . . and coming up short . . . Really?

    But this one's my favorite:

    "I wish things were different," he whispers, but I can still hear him.

    The words take me back to my home and my father when he said the same thing so long ago . . .


    So long ago?



    . . . To think that Cal and my father, a broken Red man, can share the same thoughts makes me pause.


    Hmm . . . you like tacos, too? That's CRAZY. Me, I friggin' love tacos. It is a small world.

    3. I don't hate all love triangles . . .

    When they don't get ridiculous, sometimes I even like the tension they create.

    BUT.

    There is something inherently sordid about messing around with brothers. It's tacky. Don't do it. *flares nostrils*

    And I'm going to have to stop, b/c I'm nearing my (self-imposed) word limit. But know that as well as being melodramatic and a coward, Mare Barrow is also self-centered, irrational, AND inconsistent. If you really want to hear me rant some more, I'll spoiler tag it in my Goodreads review. Beyond that, the book was 100% predictable, and the methods employed to overthrow the corrupt government were every bit as reprehensible as the government itself. Not recommended.



    SPOILERY rant time! Starting where I left off: (view spoiler)

    “I am finally learning my lesson. Anyone can betray anyone.”


    red queen by victoria aveyard? more like red queen by victoria graveyard, because that's where this book put me.

    No, okay, listen.

    Let me explain why this book was a no-no for me.

    We could say most of my problems with this book are to blame on wrong timing.

    I'm firmly convinced that if I read it something like six years ago, I probably would have liked it. Not loved it, but it would have definitely gained a couple more stars and a bit mo ...more

    It’s getting a little hot in here, isn’t it? That’s because Red Queen has unearthed what I never thought could occur: A mini Darkling. That’s right. Yet another morally ambiguous character and I am sold.


    I’m a book pusher and I’m going to push this one right into your hearts. Red Queen is the fantasy that I’ve been searching for. You’ve probably all heard the comparisons before and honestly, they speak the truth. Red Queen took the best elements from all our favourites (and our not so much) t ...more

  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies

    I'm sure it's great if you liked Red Rising. I did not like Red Rising.

    DNFed this around the 20% mark. I hated the main character. Stupid, selfish, destructive brat intent on destroying the lives of her loved ones with all the makings of a special snowflake. I cannot stand selfishness when it involves harming the lives of innocents. I can't tolerate this character. I can't finish this book. It's been a month since I tried to read on and it's just pointless.

    Book 19/100 for 2015

    UPDATE: Giving it 3 stars because it's only been three months and I've already forgotten everything about this book. I enjoyed reading it, but it was so similar to many other YA books that it's not memorable.

    WOAH. That was an intense book and I really enjoyed it! I am a sucker for superpowers and this book had such a cool variety of them! I was so into this book that I stayed up very, very late two nights in a row so I could see what happened next. It was a little predictabl
