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? And don’t miss Broken Throne: A Red Queen Collection, featuring three brand-new novellas and other exclusive content, coming in April!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As with her first effort, Aveyard certainly has a flair for the dramatic, which teens will eat up. The action hits the ground running and doesn’t stop until after the last page is turned…Fans of Red Queen who have been clamoring for the sequel will be sated.” School Library Journal
“Tragedy seems to be a certainty before the end, but the spectacle still packs a surprising punch.” Kirkus Reviews
“High-stakes excitement and sharp plot twists…make this a fast-paced, exciting read and a thrilling sequel.” Booklist
“Fast-paced and action packed, Glass Sword is compelling and strong, guaranteed to gratify anxious readers of the series and fans of dystopian and fantasy literature.” VOYA
