“The truth is what I make it. I could set this world on fire and call it rain.”
Before starting this book I actually didn’t have particularly high expectations, but I actually really enjoyed this book. It was just a really fun read.
“The gods rule us still. They have come down from the stars. And they are no longer kind.”
What’s it about? It’s like a fantasy set in a dystopian world ruled by X-men villains. Its set in this strange world with an old-timey royal court with ancient roman influences, but also technology and super powers. The Reds are basically powerless slaves ruled over by the super-powered Silvers. When a young Red girl finds out she has more in common with the Silvers than she thought, she’s thrown into their world, ans things do not go well.
“Words can lie. See beyond them.”
What did I think? I really liked this book. It thoroughly exceeded my expectatioms. It was just a really fun read and there wasn’t a single second that I didn’t enjoy. Its fast-paced, never boring, and funny at times as well. I would recommend this to any YA fantasy fan.
I rate it 4/5 stars
