Descripción del producto
An incredible start to an electrifying new series . . . Red Queen is a fantastic debut which makes me extremely enthusiastic about the rest of the books to come . . . If you're going to pick up a book, pick this one up. (THE GUARDIAN ONLINE)
"A whirlwind of betrayal and plot twists." (SCI-FI NOW)
All hail Victoria Aveyard - the new Queen of dystopian fiction. (THE GUARDIAN CHILDRENS BOOKS)
"It's slick, it's interesting and ... gripping." (SFX)
'Red Queen is a clever blend of The Hunger Games, The Selection, Graceling and Divergent.' (STARBURST)
Red Queen... Where do I start? As I sit here after closing the book just this second, with a shocked, enthralled, amazed brooding look on my face I think its safe to say that this book has royally floored me... If you're having hangovers over the Divergent series, or having withdrawal symptoms from the Hunger Games then this is the book that will get you out of that funk. (DARK READERS)
Unique and amazing . . . filled with twists and turns throughout. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone as it is a great read and I can't wait for the sequel to be released. (THEGUARDIAN.COM)
"In Red Queen Victoria Aveyard has delivered a clever, slick and compelling debut. The dystopian novel will please fans of The Hunger Games but uses a supernatural twist to explore the theme of social injustice." (We Love This Book)
Trust us when we say that it will have you up late at night trying to finish the next chapter, next page, next line - or maybe the whole thing because this book is impossible to put down. (MAXIMUM POP!)
Aveyard weaves a compelling new world, and Mare and the two men in her life evolve intriguingly as class tension rises. Revolution supersedes romance, setting the stage for action-packed surprises. An inventive, character-driven twist breathes new life into tired fantasy trends. (KIRKUS)

PRE-ORDER WAR STORM NOW - THE FOURTH & FINAL BOOK IN THE RED QUEEN SERIES!
The first novel in the #1 bestselling RED QUEEN series by Victoria Aveyard
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 is everything the synopsis promises and much more! I am in love with everything in the book: the story, the twists and turns, the characters... Red Queen is definitely one of my favorite reads of this year.
Victoria Averyard's dystopian world, is divided between Reds and Silvers, humans and gods. The Reds are common people mistreated by an oppressive Silver King who sends them to battle when they turn 18 if they don't have a job and that keeps reminding them how different and superior they are from the Reds. Silvers have powers, their blood is silver and have all the commodities in the world while Reds struggle to see the sun one more day.
But everything will change when a well dressed stranger gives Mare a job in court. She will discover she's different from everyone, from the Silvers and from the Reds and she will definitely become the Red Queen.
Although I have read a lot of dystopian stories and come to a point to say enough when all of them sound the same, Red Queen is one of those stories you simply need more and are eager to keep reading. The dystopian world that Ms. Aveyard has created is spectacular, brutal and deadly in a royal and glamorous way.
The main character in the story is the sort of character that is perfect with all her imperfections. She's a thief and she can't stop from saying what's happening in her mind. Even if that leads her to a probably death. Meanwhile, Prince Cal is one of those guys who's all the responsibility on his shoulders and he does what's expected from him. However, he has his moments that made me swoon over him and definitely won me over to be Team Cal all the way down. Prince Mavel is the complete opposite to his half-brother and it's incredible how much he shares a similar personality to Mare.
The plot in the story is unique, unexpected and breathtaking. I was on edge all the time. Once I started the book, I couldn't put it down. I needed to know what was going to happen next and what will happen between Mare, Prince Cal and Prince Maven. The twists and turns in the story are mind-blowing and the book has an surprising and fantastic ending that made me scream that I needed the following book. I think not knowing how the story is going to end is what makes this story so good and what keeps the reader on edge the whole time.
This book is one of my favorite reads of this year, not only for the amazing forbidden love and sweet relationships built throughout the story, but because is about defending what you believe is right, it's about starting a revolution, being mistaken and see the consequences of your acts, about sacrifice, betrayal, family and love. I highly recommend it and just hope you like it as much as I did. I will definitely wait on the following book like a true book addict!
