Puterea este un joc periculos.
Acest box set include primele două volume din seria Red Queen. Mare Barrow, o Roșie (o persoană cu sângele Roșu - om simplu, comun, obișnuit) este captivă într-o lume divizată de culoarea sângelui, dar posesoare a unei abilități speciale întâlnită doar la elita Argintiilor.
Această putere îi dă viața peste cap, iar acest secret pe care îl poartă o vor face să își ia inima în dinți și să lupte pentru eliberarea populației de tirania unei elite puternice.
Power is a dangerous game.
This beautiful box set includes the first two books in Victoria Aveyard’s #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen series, Red Queen and Glass Sword.
Mare Barrow, a lowly Red in a world of red-blooded laborers and silver-blooded elites, thought she knew what her future held. But when she learns that her red blood has been disguising a secret ability, one usually reserved only for Silvers, her life is turned upside down. How will the Silver ruling class keep her secret hidden from the increasingly restless Red population and their Scarlet Guard revolutionaries? And how will Mare use her sudden power to change the caste system, the kingdom, and the world—forever?
Corrupt courts, unnatural abilities, and forbidden romance spark a revolution in the first two electrifying installments of Victoria Aveyard’s blockbuster Red Queen series.
