Publisher's Summary

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 tries to control.
The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from the prince and friend who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.
Pursued by the Silver 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?

Good sequel, not so good narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

A decent follow up to Red Queen from a story perspective, but I was disappointed in the narration. Too fast, not enough emotion or distinction in dialogue.

Great 2nd instalment although there are a few issues

Captivating 2nd instalment, the middle if the book drags on a little bit although is arguably important. Given the amount of world-building in the first book I couldn't help but notice a few odd things relating to silver abilities, healers are called 3 different names in the book while it's said there are only 2 types with different abilities, slightly confusing and immersion-breaking. And I don't think i'll ever be okay with the near complete dismissal and lack of description of an important character death.

Although overall a good read that manages to still keep my interest, hopefully it manages to keep for the whole series.
