Mare Barrow lives a life of near poverty because of the color of her blood. The Silvers rule with arrogance and cruelty because of special powers that seem to run through their blood. Reds scrape by and just try to survive. But then an accident reveals that Mare is an ‘impossibility’--a Red with the powers of a Silver. To hide her power, Mare is swept into the world of the Silvers with all their privilege and intrigue. She struggles to belong while secretly helping the Scarlet Guard--leaders of a Red rebellion.
This fast-paced story of a broken world is perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. With a world turned upside down, no character is exactly what they seem.
