Roșii sunt cei comuni, oamenii simpli conduși de Argintii - o elită aflată în posesia unor super-puteri dumnezeiești.
Mare Barrow este o fată Roșie de șaptesprezece ani din săracul Stilts, iar pentru ea se pare că nimic nu se va schimba.
Asta până când ajunge să muncească în Palatul de Argint. Înconjurată de oameni pe care îi urăște, Mare descoperă că în ciuda sângelui Roșu care îi curge prin vene posedă o abilitate mortală. Una care amenință să distrugă balanța puterii.
Înspăimântați de potențialul lui Mare, Argintii o declară pe aceasta o demult pierdută Prințesă Argintie acum logodită cu un Prinț Argintiu.
Orice pas greșit o poate costa moartea pe Mare care riscă și colaborează cu Garda Roșie, o grupare militantă de rezistență hotărâtă să răstoarne regimul Argintiilor.
Dar în această lume de trădări și minciuni, Mare face primii pași dintr-un dans periculor - Roșii contra Argintiilor, prinț contra prinț și Mare împotriva inimii ei...

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express
Luminita Nicoleta Stoian a dat nota:
I loved every page of this book. It has been awhile since I've read something that I couldn't put down. It has a lot of action, it keeps you alert.
Anonim a dat nota:
I was really intrigued by this new world that is essentially playing in the future. The heroine was really sympathetic for me, though I can't help but be annoyed by the love triangle (which also has the potential to be a rectangle :)) )
Firru . a dat nota:
This was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed this crazy adventure of a book. I will say though that it did take a bit of time for me to really get into this book. I also felt the world is still a bit underdeveloped for my liking, but I'm hoping that I gain a better understanding for everything in the sequel. Other than that such an exciting read, full of twists and turns that will leave you flailing all over the place!
This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.
The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.
That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.
Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.
But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart ...

Textul de pe ultima copertă
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.
From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.
