Publisher's Summary

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they've always known - and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.
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?

Depressing and Slow

What disappointed you about Glass Sword?

I loved the first book so I was very excited to read this. I was so disappointed. The main character kept reminding you of how miserable she is and how terrible of a person she is. The story was slow and depressing. It felt like a "middle" book. Just a filler for the finale.

What was most disappointing about Victoria Aveyard’s story?

It moved way too slow and was too depressing.

What three words best describe Amanda Dolan’s voice?

This takes more than three words. I didn't mind her voice, but I agree with other reviewers, she mispronounces certain words that annoys me. She also narrates in a strange way. However, I blame it mostly on the story, not the narrator.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?


Any additional comments?

I have not decided if I will bother with the last book. Even though this one ends on a cliffhanger, I will read reviews by others before deciding if the next one is worth it. This was just too hard to get through for me.

Not quite the page turner I hoped

I enjoyed the Red Queen and was looking forward to the sequel. While enjoyed the overall story of Glass Sword I found the writing style slightly disappointing. Usually the writing improves as a series progresses but in this case it was quite the opposite. I found that an enormous amount of time was spent explaining erroneous details like trees in the woods or people in the streets that would last for pages. In contrast things like fight scenes left you wanting more. There was also very little dialogue among characters and to much time spent inside Mare's head. The writing style unfortunately made want to give up on the story multiple times even though I was interested in the outcome.
