The second novel in the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard.

I was born to kill a king, to end a reign of terror before it can truly begin. .

If there's one thing Mare Barrow knows, it's that she's different.

Mare's blood is red - the colour of common folk - but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court wants to control.

Pursued by the vengeful Silver king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join the rebellion.

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?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Fans of Red Queen will not be disappointed. Victoria's writing is fluid, fast and fierce, and the action, suspense and crackling adrenaline woven into the pages of its predecessor aims, pulls the trigger, and hits home in Glass Sword.'  - The Guardian

'It's high adrenaline stuff...the double-crossing and duplicity is the real loop-the-loop, awesome roller-coaster star attraction.' - Sci-Fi Now

'All the characters are great, and the relationships that Victoria Aveyard builds and breaks between them will have you feeling all the emotions, there is a great mix of action and contemplation that works so terrifically well.' - Liz Loves Books

'Grittier than 'Red Queen', but with the same disorientating twists that made the first book such a hit, 'Glass Sword' does not disappoint...Biggest problem? The last page. In dire need of book 3.' - Maximum Pop

'Glass Sword ended on such a high note. I think Victoria Aveyard is becoming the queen of plot twists! The set up for the next book looks ridiculously exciting.' - Dana and The Books

'Glass Sword is what every sequel should aspire to be. A deeper understanding of a fascinating world, fleshed out characters and an explosive plot.' - Accio Reviews

'There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. And a lot more action and re-action. There are shocks and reveals and one massive ending. I mean how can we end where we did? Hopefully we will get the answers soon. But I promise that this is one book you will not want to miss.' - Escapes of a Bookworm

“Amazing sequel”

Victoria Aveyard is one hell of a YA author. She's the kind that makes you go through all the emotions you have in one book. After reading Red Queen I didn't think she'd be able to do it for a second... More

“Brilliant”

So much was packed into Red Queen that it was hard to see how Victoria Aveyard could keep up the fast pace but she does so brilliantly and in style, squeezing more plot progression and development of characters into... More

“An excellent sequel”

I thoroughly enjoyed this, not so much as Red Queen, namely because Mare's narration has become a wee bit self involved, but the story itself doesn't suffer for it. The similarities between this series and... More
