Waiting on Wednesday which is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which you show a book that will be releasing soon that you are excited for!
X-Men meets Game of Thrones is my elevator pitch when it comes to this book. Red Queen hooked me right from the start and I have been dying to know what happened after that crazy cliff hanger of an ending. You can read my review of Red Queen HERE to find out all of my opinions of this book.
Glass Sword has been on my highly anticipated list since before I even knew it was titled Glass Sword. This is one of the down sides of getting to read an arc early is that the wait for book two can be excruciating.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind. Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors. But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?
