The Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard is the second book to the Red Queen series. In this book the main character, Mare Borrow, continues her escape from the now King Maven along with The Scarlet Guard and Cal, the banished Prince. On Mares conquest to find the Newbloods before Maven does she struggles with becoming the very thing she’s fighting against. With heartbreaking deaths and a complicated romance developing Mare comes to a life-altering ultimatum and finds herself back into King Mavens evil confines. The book ends with Mavens threatening words to destroy Mare while her friends and family watch helplessly through a TV screen.
I would recommend this book to anyone who obviously liked the first one and is a mature reader. It’s romantic, it has action, and the universe is so well made. There were a few adult jokes here and there so young readers should use discretion but all in all it’s an amazing series that I would tell anyone and everyone to read.
