Summary:
Ambientada en un reino imaginario, esta novela nos muestra a una sociedad dividida por el color de la sangre. Por un lado está la gente común que tiene sangre roja; por el otro tenemos a aquellos que poseen sangre plateada y que tienen habilidades sobrenaturales. Estos últimos forman una élite cerrada y llena de privilegios. La protagonista es Mare, una chica de sangre roja que sobrevive en medio de la pobreza realizando pequeños robos. Cierto día, el azar la lleva a la corte. Allí demuestra tener poderes especiales, los cuales resultan insólitos para alguien del pueblo. Ello la convierte en una anomalía que llama la atención del mismísimo rey. Éste desea aprovechar en su beneficio los poderes de la joven y la hace pasar por una princesa, quien supuestamente se casará con uno de sus hijos. Una vez en la corte, Mare se convierte en parte del mundo de plata y, de manera secreta, ayuda a la Guardia Escarlata, un grupo que prepara una rebelión. --Amazon

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.
