Till It Arrives is inspired by Jamie from The Perpetual Page-Turner’s Save the Date feature. Sometimes I read books that are not released anytime soon, but I want to share some of my feelings on the book right away, so Till It Arrives is born! (It also allows me to read books that appear later in my schedule, so that’s awesome too.) Since I don’t usually use GIFs in my reviews, I thought I’ll use plenty of GIFs to describe my feelings for the book I’m talking about in this feature!
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Series: Red Queen Trilogy #1
Genre: Young Adult, Romance, Fantasy
Release Date: February 10, 2015
Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood – those with Red blood serve the elite, whose Silver blood gifts them with superhuman abilities.
Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has power, too – an ability all her own.
To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. Mare is drawn quickly into the Silver world, but risks everything to help the Scarlet Guard – a growing Red rebellion – even as her heart tugs her in an impractical direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, and in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainly is betrayal.
Recent USC grad Victoria Aveyard’s internationally sought-after story of court intrigue and deception will keep readers hurtling along, desperate to find out Mare’s fate. Her honestly and determination, as well as her no-holds-barred attitude, will surely make readers fall in love with her.
First Sentence: I hate First Friday.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review.
