It’s about time! Red Queen #review

Posted April 10, 2018 by Berls in Review / 12 Comments

I’ve had my eyes on this book since the COVER REVEAL. So please, tell me why it took me so damn long to pick it up? If a friend hadn’t loaned it to me, I wonder if I still would be waiting to read it. And I loved it.

I love this concept. It entertains the part of me that loves magical powers you find in magical, fantasy worlds. And it entertains the part that likes dystopian worlds where a group are treated unjustly for some ridiculous reason. In this case it’s the color of their blood – the Silver bloods rule and have magical powers, the red bloods don’t have anything special and live poor, and are basically fodder for a decades (centuries?) long war.

And then you have the special snowflake. Yeah, I know it’s been done. But its fun and I enjoyed seeing her thrust into another world and coming into powers. And what makes it great is the twists and deceit all around. Several twists that I was like “no effing way!!”

Very much looking forward to where the series goes!

  1. Ha! I’ve had this book on my shelves forever, too, Berls. And I haven’t read it yet. So I didn’t read your review, apart from just seeing that you loved it. I need to get to this. But my backlist is humongous. (As is my current and upcoming TBR as well…)
    Miss you! {{{big hugs}}}

  2. Yay!! I loved this book too! I read it when it first came out and it adored it. But I didn’t keep up with the series because I just suck at that kind of thing. But now that the last (I think?) book is coming out soon I think I’ll reread this one and continue with all the rest.

    • LOL I suck at keeping up with series too. You’re right though, the last book comes out next month I think – I’ve read Glass Sword as well (reviewing next week I think and really liked it) so I need to get #3 and the last one soon πŸ™‚

  3. I’ve been on the fence about this one. I don’t read much YA and I’ve seen some mixed reviews (but mostly from people who read a lot of YA) so I wasn’t sure but you’ve completely convinced me!

    • I hope you end up enjoying it! I have read mixed reviews too, that could be part of why it took me so long. Some people I tend to agree with didn’t enjoy it, so IDK. But I loved it πŸ™‚

  4. I actually own this one…a gift…n hardback no less. And it’s one I’ve been dying to read and yet I haven’t. So I can’t answer you about why it took so long but I’m thrilled it was worth it! And now it’ll move up in my queue. πŸ˜‰
    Happy Tuesday! {{{big hugs}}}

    Since I don’t really read YA, I don’t know what is good or not. This sounds good! I wonder if it’s in audiobook.

    • I’m pretty sure it is! It was talked about a lot when it came out and has been out long enough that I would be surprised if it’s not. But every now and again a book surprises me by being in print only.
