Waiting on Wednesday # 13: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

Wednesday, 1 July 2015

Waiting on Wednesday is an original weekly feature created at Breaking the Spine. The idea is that each week you make a post that spotlights upcoming releases that you're eagerly anticipating. You can find out more about this feature here.

This week I am deciding to spotlight:


If there's one thing Mare Barrow knows, it's that she's different.

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?

Ahh I absolutely adored the first book, Red Queen! I thought the pacing was amazing, the blend of abilities and frankly I thought the writing style was gorgeous. The only issue I had with it was how amazingly tragic the ending was, and how being left on a partial cliffhanger, Victoria Aveyard teased us in making us wait for the second book! I literally am going to have the hardcover of this book pre-ordered ASAP because I can't wait much longer!

So what is your Waiting on Wednesday pick this week? 

Let me know in the comments below, or over on any of my social media platforms. I'd love to read what your picks are! 


  1. Do you know if ARCs are being given out? I tried to find on Edelweiss but no go :/

    1. I do believe both the US and UK publishers are going to be doing ARC's for this title, but at the minute I believe they're on a small scale! You'd be better off asking the publisher's over Twitter for a chance to obtain one!
