Goodreads Summary:
Graceling meets The Selection in debut novelist Victoria Aveyard's sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king's palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood--those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard--a growing Red rebellion--even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.
  
Basically this sounds awesome so I want to read it.

  15. This book is EVERYWHERE I look!! I'm with Pili, I am worried about the hype because this all started before the ARCs were even out, and obviously not that many people had access to it, but masses of people were talking about it. I hate it when bloggers promote books they haven't read yet.I don't know if I have read any actual reviews yet. I should go have a look around.

    1. I admit I'm a little worried about the hype too. I've seen a couple reviews and they praised the book so that lessened my reservation. Alyssa @ The Eater of Books has a review up! She commented above so just scroll up and you'll find her blog link :D Not sure if I'll get to reading this one but I'm still excited for it to be out in the world ;)

    2. I will definitely have a look. I usually agree with her reviews, so if she liked it I probably will too.

    3. Yes yes! Alyssa has great taste :D
