Waiting on Wednesday: Glass Sword

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that focuses on the yet-to-be released books we're waiting for. It's hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm talking about the sequel to a fantasy-dystopian that I really liked!

Title: Glass Sword
Series: Red Queen #2
Author: Victoria Aveyard
Genre: YA Science Fiction/Fantasy
Publication Date: Feb. 9, 2016

Goodreads Summary:

Cover of Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard on Amber, the Blonde WriterMare 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?


I finished the first book last month and was sucked in immediately. I can't wait to continue the series and see what happens to Mare and the politics of her country.

Which books are you waiting on?
