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.

Don’t get me wrong, I liked Red Queen. I was willing to over look various not so good aspects of the book ( aka Mare ) and focus on it’s strengths ( aka Powers and twist ) but somebody hold me because Glass sword pissed the hell out of me. It was full of Mare’s monologue of how important she is and then her self loathing over Maven’s betrayal and her pent up feelings for Cal. There were few saving scenes but this is too bad it can’t be saved by Shade.

I would like to give it another chance but not now. I hope the next time I read it I can stomach Mare.

Thanks you guys for reading. 😘
