If you are a fan of Red Queen then get ready for the second in the series Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. If you have got to read the book Red Queen then check out my review on the book here than come back read this review. Glass Sword was a great follow up with action, intense emotions and twist that would keep you going. I was really happy to finally read this since it been sitting my shelf since it came out in March. On to the synopsis.
Glass Sword throws back after Mare and Cal escape their execution. Along with the help with the Scarlet Guard and Mare’s back from the dead brother Shade escape the hands of Maven. Soon they find out that Scarlet Guard is bigger than Mare and Cal thought. Later Mara is tasked with finding others like her. Red blood with silver powers. In order to save them from Maven and the army before their doom. Mare goes on the mission along with Cal, Killorn, Shade and Farley to find the hidden new bloods and hopes to train them to help stop Maven.
Throughout the book, it was a like a race against time because Mare and the others must use their smarts due the fact that Maven also knows where the new bloods are. Mare also struggles with in demons and must avoid capture as well.
I really enjoyed seeing the other side characters have more scenes through the story. I really like Shade and seeing Farley in the story since they tend to be one of the coolest characters in the stories. I also liked how the story covers themes from learning to accept yourself, and how to believe in yourself. The story also brings issues like prejudice between the color of blood, and idea of being lost. Mare struggles with finding herself and not sure who she is throughout the story. Cal also struggles to find himself in the world of reds after losing his place as a prince. The story is great and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
