Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - Paul's Pre-Reading

*I received this book as an eARC from HarperTeen via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Red Queen

Author: Victoria Aveyard

Upcoming Release Date: February 10, 2015

Synopsis: The poverty stricken Reds are commoners, living under the rule of the Silvers, elite warriors with god-like powers.

To Mare Barrow, a 17-year-old Red girl from The Stilts, it looks like nothing will ever change.

Mare finds herself working in the Silver Palace, at the centre of those she hates the most. She quickly discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy Silver control.

But power is a dangerous game. And in this world divided by blood, who will win?


Why?: I have heard amazing things about this book. And just look at that cover. It is absolutely gorgeous. Everything about this book sounds awesome. 

Expectations: I'm expecting an epic dystopian YA with a fantasy influence featuring a strong heroine. The seperation between Silvers and Reds sounds very inetresting.   

Judging a book by its cover: I LOVE this cover. It is simple and elegant. The blood really stands out against the background. And the crown/tiara is upside down. This cover really draws my attention.
