"Anyone can betray anyone."
This quote from the book is one of the main highlights of the novel. You cannot and should not trust anyone, at least not so easily. Reds and Silvers. This is how the country is divided. The lowly and rhe royalties. The servants and the Gods. But, just like other stories, there is something, someone, in between the two. The bearer of change... The protagonist, Mare Barrow (please don't get me started with her name because I don't like it very much), a Red, was deemed a lost cause until her life went upside down and is now supposed to spend her life pretending that she is now a Silver; a life she has always been resenting, the palace using her as a pawn against the Red rebels, the Scarlet Guard.
The twists and neverending betrayals on this book kind of gave me a headache but it surprised me in a good way all the same. The ending is just ASHFJSHAJSKA. It's an ending that will make you want to read the next book so bad because you want to know what will happen next. Major UGH.
Giving this book 4 stars because even though I liked and enjoyed it, I still feel that there is something lacking from the whole book. I just can't put my finger around it.
