Praise from the Coven:
“Amazing, simply amazing. Couldn’t put the first two books down and I can’t wait for the third book.”- Kaela
“It’s so good. I don’t know if I can trust anyone ever.” – Paige
““Anyone can betray anyone” that’s this series summed up in a sentence”. – Jacy
“It’s amazing, better than and nothing like what I expected. Imaginative and interesting af. Highly recommend.” – Koya
“Red Queen is just as amazing as the Coven made it sound.” – Zee

This book completely captivated our Coven. The characters, the premise, the world building, the emotion, everything was top notch. At times Mare was a little annoying with her insta-hate of the world, but grew to be a character we could all identify with. We would have liked to see Mare embrace more of her "Silver side" (she had already embraced being a Red for most of her life), as it became apparent early on that she was hell bent on changing the world and its traditions. It was refreshing to read a story following a kick ass driven female without it centered around a romance such as most YA books. Julian was our Obi Wan Kenobi. He became the most beloved characters from all our witches. We might be slightly bias due his love of books and knowledge, but he also did his best to prepare Mare for her ever changing role as a leader of the future. Betrayal is a centralized theme throughout this book and series, which kept us on the edge of our seats. In the end we were all ready to Rise, Red as Dawn
