Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood—those with red and
those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the
Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals
what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is
conscripted into the army, she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of
fate leads her to the royal palace, where, in front of the king and all
his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn’t know she
had. Except … her blood is Red.
To hide this
impossibility, the king forces her into 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 her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red
rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting
prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.
