Mare Barrow is a ‘Red’ – the foot soldiers and workers and lower classes in the Kingdom of Norta. The ‘Silvers’ are in charge, and they stay that way through their magical, supernatural powers. So when Mare ends up in a situation which shows that maybe the Reds aren’t as powerless as everyone thinks, maybe things will be about to change.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although the idea of having to commit to three more books in the series is, well, a big commitment. But I really want to know who they can and can’t trust, and while I presume that by the end of book four, everything will be ok, I do want to see how it happens.
