"Waiting On" Wednesday #15: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Have you seen this cover yet?! It was just revealed yesterday. And oh yeah, I'm not ecstatic to hear that Elizabeth Banks is thinking about directing the first book in movie form. The Red Queen could turn out to be an all women-ensemble for production - director, producer and screenwriter.

Also, how is that tagline?! I love it. KNEEL OR BLEED




DETAILS:
  • Title: Glass Sword
  • Publisher: Harper Teen
  • Publishing date: February 9, 2016
  • Author(s): Victoria Aveyard
  • Series: The Red Queen #2

SUMMARY:

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?

As always thanks to Breaking the Spine for hosting.

  11. I have so many conflicting feelings! I pretty much love the cover on its own, but I think it's really similar to the first, which is kind of odd and might be confusing for people unfamiliar with the books. I'll be curious to see where this series goes, though! :)

    Great pick!
