About Red Queen
The #1 New York Times bestselling series!
Red Queen, by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Aveyard, is a sweeping tale of power, intrigue, and betrayal, perfect for fans of George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series.
Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver-blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.
To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction.
One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

very intricate and unique plot; clique storyline of how the main character starts out less wealthy and moves up in life but the execution of the plot really makes up for this. Very unpredictable ending.
This is a really great read full of twists, suspense, and hardship. Loved it can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
In the beginning of the book you really just want to throw it across the room and forget about it, but then it pulls you in with a mysterious yet comforting new world. I loved this book so much and about to read the next one. *SPOILER ALERT* I hated the fact that Maven turned aginst Mare and Cal. For some crazy reason though, my mind hopes that Maven becomes good again. "Why that is, I don't know." - at first it bothered me but now I have gotten used to it.
upon reading that this book had a strange assortment of powers scattered amongst people, i wasn’t sure i’d enjoy it (not my thing).. but this book just keeps the pages turning for you. about to read the 2nd book now (:
I used to despise reading, and if I did read anything it was realistic fiction because that is what I thought I liked. This book made me love reading and love fantasy. Perfect amount of romance. Binge-read the second and third books directly after I read this. Couldn’t put it down. I love it.
When I first started the series I thought it was going to be too young and immature since I’m reading it at 21. That being said, a well written series and a great plot. Was really sad when I finished the books. I highly recommend!
This book was amazing. I used it as a pass time for flights home from school, and absolutely fell in love. I was constantly wanting more the whole time and the ending left me craving to read the rest of the series. Only issue was rushing some sentimental points, but otherwise amazing.
I love everything about it. Hope it can be a movie someday.
I used to LOVE Red Queen, but upon rereading I realized it’s seriously overhyped. My #1 issue was with the characters: they lacked originality, depth, and meaningful development throughout the entire series, especially Mare. She tried too hard to be a Strong Independent Female Lead and failed miserably because of her self-pitying, selfish, and arrogant nature, and was ultimately the series’ downfall. She was tolerable in the first book, but boy did she get annoying by War Storm. I did enjoy the plot (slightly predictable but dramatic) and the magic and writing are amazing. If you value plot over characters, pick this one up! If not, maybe skip it because the series (mostly characters) kind of goes downhill from here.
The book isn’t that great. It sounds good, but once you start reading you feel like you’re on a roller coaster. It felt like it was going way too fast! One minute she’s here and then the next she’s there without any back story or a path to build up to it. I’m not sure how both brothers fall for her when you don’t really see them having time to interact with on another. The author should have gave the characters more depth. But I’m going to read the 2nd one and hope it’s not too bad as this one!
I absolutely loved this book. Like what’s not to love about it?? I thought mare is such a powerful character and so brave! I did think that the beginning was kind of slow but it’s still a fast moving book. *SPOILER ALERT* I first didn’t like Maven but then he got better and then at the end it was so surprising and now I hate him. Cal is cool and I think there is something between Mare and him. Again I think this is so good but at some parts (especially at the end) it’s very emotional and sad and it will make u wanna cry. Also I don’t know why they call it red queen when Mare wasn’t a queen but wtvr. 😭😭But still very good. Worth reading. 😁😁😁
Had twists and interesting characters. A very good book. Used too be one of my faves but not so much anymore. A must read! I loved it but it starts out slow it’s the end that makes it good. Great book for any fans of dystopian and fantasy books.The end was just so emotional... only problem with these books is they r very uneven, some parts r slow and kinda boring then it gets really good, so it’s not a smooth sorta book. *SPOILER ALERT* I loooooove Maven and was crying 😭 when he betrayed Mare, hope he turns good somehow...
Victoria Aveyard really changed the way I look at books. Her books are so amazing & she is one of my favorite authors. Thx Victoria aveyard for all the wonderful things you write!
Characters are awesome. The thrills and action keep me going. I just started book 2 glass swords.
I would recommend this book for those who love huge plot twist, action, and romance (a bit of everything ;)
Loved it. With all my heart. I feel in love with the characters and the ending broke my heart but it was worth it
Ok so I say a lot of books are my favorite but this one was so much better. This book was unpredictable and I got completely trapped in it. It was so amazing!!!! I’m an action kind of person and it was just the perfect amount. This book was just so original and creative. I highly recommend this book to you if u r a person. I find it funny that some of u haters think Aveyard copied this series off of the hunger games. Have y’all even read the hunger games??? This is NOTHING like anything I’ve ever read before!!! And also you could tell by my display name that I need just lil bit of romance. Every one cross their fingers that this book becomes a movie!!!( with Lucy Hale as Mare)🤞🏼 CAUTION!!! THIS PART CONTAINS A VERY BIG SPOILER!!! DO NOT READ IF U HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK!!!! I was on Cal’s side the whole time anyway. I never trusted Maven >_< To all the haters out there for this book... SHUT THE F*CK UP
I wish I could rate this higher than 5 stars!
This was quite the page turner! Amazing plot twist! So happy to find a series that’s breaking the mold a bit!
This book has everything you can think of. This is by far my favorite book and series. It has a lot of interesting things and plot twists. I would love to see more books like this.
Sucked me in. Great heroine. Wonderful imaginative world. I loved it.

The start of one of my all time favorites.
Great characters & twists
I SWEAR TO GOD I HOPE THIS BOOK BECOMES A MOVIE AND IT BETTER!! I LOVED EVERY SINGLE PART OF IT FROM BEGINNING TO END!!!!! I just finished the book last night and it was AMAZING! I’m literally already in love with this series! And mare was AWESOME! Spoiler alert...I was so shocked that SHADE IS ALIVE! When it mentioned he was the cradling mare I thought at first it was maven but apparently I was wrong but still SHADE IS ALIVE! And I’m not gonna lie and please don’t hate me but at first I was on Cal’s side and then I went to Mavens side all the way to when he betrayed his own brother! I couldn’t even chose which would be a good couple! But now I’m kinda starting to think mare and cal might be a good couple again. AHHHH!!! But still I loved it! Thank you VICTORIA AVEYARD FOR MAKING THIS BOOK AND THE REST OF THE RED QUEEN SERIES! Which I still have to read of course but still I loved it! And I totally agree with romance reader that this book should become a movie! Finally someone who understands me about this book should become a movie! Amazing wonderful spectacular! Keep up the good work Victoria Aveyard!😊 I LOVED IT!!!!!! AMAZING AWESOME WONDERFUL SPECTACULAR AND LOVELY!!😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I am in love with the book and anyone who thinks otherwise, your crazy.
I personally loved the book and the entire series and finished all the books as fast as I could. However reading some reviews, I do realize that some things/characters could have been written better or improved on, but trust me, the second and third books are even better, and some main characters are further developed, and given amazing background stories and context. I guess this book could be too cliche if your not into fiction, or teen romance novels, but if you liked the hunger games, I would totally read this book.
This is one of the most fantastic books I’ve ever read! Victoria Aveyard has done a terrific job describing the story of Mare Burrow. I was given this book as a Christmas present, and immediately began reading. After 5 straight hours of reading, I finished Red Queen. And I have to admit,(SPOILER ALERT!!!) I did cry when Mare was betrayed..😔 But still an amazing book, recommended it to all my friends! P.S.: (SPOILER WARNING AGAIN!!!) I really trusted Maven... though I could never really think of any good ship names for Maven and Mare, guess it doesn’t matter now.
This book is one of my personal favorites, and I highly recommend it!!! The book contains a lot of plot twists, and the book is so descriptive, you just lose yourself in it sometimes! What I like the most is that it gives so many layers to the characters, and whenever a layer is peeled off, the result shocks you! The characters are flawed, but it makes them so relatable and realistic. If you’re a The Mortal Instruments, Divergent, or Hunger Games fan, I highly recommend this series!
I love this whole series! There was so many times when I felt my stomach twist because I was so into the book. I finished the first book in a day and read for about 7 hours strait. I couldn’t put it down. I love the later books in the series because they provide a perspective from all the main characters. Each chapter alternates between different characters. If you are into books that are dystopian and have a royalty aspect to it and lots of action, plus the occasional romance that is never over done, this book is for you.
After reading it, I bought the full collection in print. Absolutely love it and my favorite book I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. 100% Recommended!
This book is great, it has flawed characters you can relate too along with a plot that keeps you on your toes. It never gets boring and the series makes you never want to stop reading.
I started reading this book series in the 7th grade and to this day I’m still in love with everything.
Ever since the first book came out this has been my favorite series! Then are many twists and turn through the story line and it keeps you wanting more! I highly recommended this series and would happily defend it from the haters because it’s that good!!!
This book was amazing! It was a little hard to get into but after it gets going it’s impossible to put a bookmark in. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy , magic and a Hunger Games style book
I could not stop reading it, I really enjoyed the plot. It is defiantly worth buying
I.Couldn’t.Put.The.Book.Down. I love it too much for my own good. I really liked it and I say this to the people who haven’t read it before. “What are you doing with your lives?” My life has been completed.
Could NOT put this down! So many twists and turns and so much suspense. Everything in the book is connected to the story one way or another. Downloading the next book now!
The title says it all. Not only is it so unoriginal I have absolutely no idea HOW it was published, but the whiny main character Mare (who names a character after a type of horse??), is so annoying and oh-so powerful and SPESHUL (typo on purpose), that I want to both barf and slap her in the face (it only gets worse in the next books, trust me). The plot was slow and boring, the idea completely unoriginal, which I’ve already said before (read Red Rising instead. Or the Hunger Games. It knocks off both of these greatly). The side characters have no complexity, neither in this book or the others, the insufferable MC has not one, not two, but THREE love interests, although it’s pretty obvious who she ends up with (even from the beginning)at the end of the series. The actual author can’t handle criticism and tends to write her fans off. And the fans. Good lord Jesus, I have never met such a defensive, blind, violent (lol) bunch. They can’t handle the slightest of criticism, much like the author, and they all tend to sound like romance-obsessed thirteen year-old girls. Not every fan is like this of course, but it gave me a Twilight fan vibe, which is NOT good. Please, please, please spare yourself. It’s not worth it.
I own all of the books in this series on iTunes along with hard cover copies. I have read this book four times! This book sets an amazing beginning for this truly incredible four book series! They are so action packed and you CANNOT put this book down! The entire series is so thrilling that you just want to read it over and over again!!! The characters are great and the plot is the best I have ever read!! These books are so creative and they also have an air of history in that Mare’s world is segregated. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to spice up their life or just read (my personally favorite) book!!!!!!!!!!
one of the best books I’ve read in my life time , hands down
I was lent a copy of this when I was stuck somewhere with out my own forms of entertainment, thought it would just kill time. Turns out it became a preferred way to spend the day time wise. Well paced, creates interest quickly while slowly bringing in the history of this world (unlike some where the first two or more chapters are slow history lessons). Although I am hoping the next few books shows more of how the schism came to exist between the two main opposing forces, enough is given in the first book to have the reader invested. I’m very excited to read the next “The Glass Sword” and find where are rebels end up! While not a total cliffhanger in how the book ends, it is definitely just the beginning of the full rebellion story and taunting in bringing in another character in the final pages that leaves a burning desire to learn that persons back story. Also recommend reading steel scar, maybe even first but think I would have been more lost if I hadn’t already read “Red Queen” first.
An amazing book, great thriller and can’t put it down!!
This book well it changed my life sounds weird tho but honestly didn’t expect anything that was thrown at me.for awhile I became paranoid because it gave me a different perspective on things which turned out to be good but the book it’s just the best.i can’t really go on talking about t without spoiling it if you haven’t read it but dear lord if only you knew what was coming if you haven’t read it yet but do it read it and love it💛
It was great. I need not say more.
Red Queen, personally, I kind of skimmed through the beginning and middle. It was rather slow, and there was no action. Only the end made me want to read more of it. I don’t find that this could be four books, as it is now, considering that Mare’s story, to me, basically ends on the second book. I was truly disappointed that there were no characters of different race, and there isn’t much character development.
If you like the hunger games and X-men then you’ll love this book.
This book combines two things I look for in a book. Royalty, and powerful abilities! Don’t listen to anyone who says this book isn’t good. Recommend highly!
So amazing and descriptive. Interesting and always keeps me on edge. I can see every page in my head as if I was living inside the book my self. 12/10 recommend.
