The Glass Sword

So I just couldn’t resist picking up the second book in the series after reading Red Queen and here I am.


Glass Sword (Red Queen, #2)


If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.
Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.
But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.
Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.


Wow. Just wow. I loved this book to pieces.

Mare, along with the other new bloods(and Cal and Kilorn and Farley) goes on a mission to find other new bloods and end the reign of King Maven, who I hate by the way. He is just so annoying and a complete backstabber. Why the hell doesn’t he just go and rot in a sewer somewhere? Preferably the most disgusting and stinky one.

I am starting to love Cal, despite being a Silver and refusing to kill other Silvers, which I completely understand, he does so when it is needed. He burns down halls and is good in general.

Mare too is an exceptional woman. The way she handles everything is exemplary and I love the way she can accept her faults. I also love the way the author highlights her faults every time she goes wrong and starts getting too much into her head. It gives her the felling of a very real human being and not some imaginary superhero who is impeccable.

Kilorn is defiantly one of my favorite characters. I love how he helps everyone and how he stands up for Mare when she needs it. He is surely one of the most supportive best friends I have ever seen. 🙂

All in all, I absolutely loved the book and cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

  1. Hi Jayati! Yes I have read Glass Sword and it was WTH???? I loved Red Queen but Glass Word really left me puzzled. But I soldiered on and King’s cage reconciled me with the series 😉 Now I am waiting for War Storm!!!

  2. I can not imagine not loving The Glass Sword, but I can understand that it got quite confusing at times. I simply cannot wait to read The War Storm, hopefully I will be able to get my hands on it soon.
