Kate | 3 comments I think the girl falls into this arena which is covered by an electric field and because she isn’t friend everyone knows she has elemental powers. Every time their daughters compete all of the families watch. Now everyone knows she has these powers, she now has to compete for the prince, which involves training as well. I think the favorite to win I is the color black family (maybe). Sorry this is so choppy and confusing.

Bonnie | 222 comments Sounds just like Red Queen except the black family statement. Maybe the Samos family wore black?

Julie | 3 comments That one is definitely Red Queen. Mare has red blood, but she has powers- supposedly only silver-blooded people have powers. She can create and control electricity, which is why she didn't die when she fell through the electric field.

I believe the OP is mistaken. It is clearly Red Queen. I have read it, too. Quote from wiki for the OP:

"Mare is taken to the king's local residence and given a job as a servant. She discovers that Cal is Tiberias Calore VI's son, Prince Tiberias Calore VII, who granted her her work in the palace in order to protect her from conscription. During the Queenstrial, where Silver nobility compete for Cal's hand, Mare displays electrokinetic powers against Cal's eventual bride, Evangeline Samos."

She is betrothed to the younger brother Maven and trained with the silver blooded people.
