I finally got my hands on this book! It was an amazing read - all throughout the book, my heart was thumping with anticipation. There was no disappointment at all.
Kneel or bleed? The revolution is underway. King Maven more determined than ever to kill all the newbloods and rule his land alongside his mother. Red vs. Silver. Mare vs. Maven. This is basically the plot of Glass Sword; all conflicting themes which bring excitement and heart-pounding exhilaration as the plot develops.
Mare is definitely not the same person she started as back in Red Queen. Now, she's a cold-hearted girl who knows what sacrifices to make. She's built a wall around her heart. Although she does talk about being guilty for all the deaths she's caused, we don't really see how much it actually affects her and her future actions. *spoiler alert* When Shade died, Mare avoided seeing her family for days on end, scared of what they would say to her. For me, it seems like Mare is running from what happened. Why doesn't she cry for her brother? I think that she's so done with pain and heartbreak that she doesn't even know how to react anymore. *spoiler over*
What did you all think about the ending? It was phenomenal! What is going to happen next?! Poor Mare! Evil Maven! I want more of Cal (even though he was highly active in this book). I still ship Cal and Mare, even though I doubt this ship will ever set sail ;(
The Scarlet Guard is more sophisticated and well organised than I first thought. There are so many levels of commands, and well, Mare is well on the bottom. And Farley! Who would've thought of her relation with the Colonel? I felt so bad more Farley when *spoiler* she found out that Shade was dead. *spoiler over* And I wonder what her question was. The answer is yes, and that's all we know. What if she's pregnant?! OOH and what if the baby is a newblood? :D
I can't wait for the next book! I desperately hope for Mare's wellbeing. Cal and Kilorn better come, since I doubt Mare will be able to do anything, especially with that sounder on.
