Very good first part of a fantasy series

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard


Mare is a Red, essentially "slaves" or worker bees for the Silvers who possess powers that keep the reds in their place. Her destiny changes with an unexpected encounter and things progress from there. The fantasy novel has Hunger Games similarities to it and has an engaging plot with interesting characters, although some are a bit two-dimensional. With political machinations, twists and turns, the novel is a good example of the genre, possibly aimed at the YA readership but has enough to make this worthwhile for all fantasy love
