The kinda read that makes you go...

Throughout the past year, I've seen this book praised by reviewers time and time again so I figured why not see for myself what this book is about.

As a graphic designer, automatically I'm pulled in by the cover art in itself. The simple but powerful graphic is absolutely stunning and from my perspective, sets a certain standard for readers. We are to expect blood and perhaps...the rise and fall of a queen.

Diving into the story, I quickly determined that yes, there will be blood, and there will be a rise, just not of a queen - yet. Aveyard did an excellent job, beautifully crafting the world of The Reds and The Silvers. Seeing through the eyes of Mare Barrow - a special type of Red - you experience the struggles and injustice that come along with having red blood.

I really enjoyed the story and got caught up trying to determine who Mare could trust once she was taken from her family - after her abilities were accidentally put on display. When introduced to Cal and Maven, I must admit it was tricky to see which I favoured the most. They both had qualities that swayed me like a teeter totter.

Progressing deeper into the story, I tried to predict how the story would unfold and just couldn't! That ending had me like..

Definitely looking forward to what the future has in store for Mare...and Cal...and MAVEN.
