Silver in the Red (Red Queen – A Book Review)

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

Rated R for radical rebellion and liberation that’ll possibly make you stop breathing sometimes.

 

Power is a dangerous game.

It’s their blood that separates them. Red and silver. Reds live in the slums and at the whim of Silvers. Silvers, with their godly, supernatural abilities, look down on the Reds with disdain and disgust.

Mare Barrow has lived in the Stilts all her life, stealing what she could to help her family survive. But suddenly and unexpectedly, she’s given a chance to prove she can be more than a thief, but it falls apart when she, along with all silvers, discover supernatural abilities, which she shouldn’t have because her blood is red.

Instantly she’s thrust into the deadly world of the silvers as a lost princess, and set to betroth one of the king’s sons. There are many deadly secrets hiding in the world of silvers and she’s only one. Delving further into the silver world, she’ll have to be careful. One wrong move could mean her life.

 

Sooooo…this is a reread. I read it a couple of years ago, but just having gotten Glass Sword and then King’s Cage, I wanted to relive this beginning. I’m very glad I did.

Mare is such an intense character. She’s very smart and quick on her feet and as a thief, she has to be. Now she has to do it as royalty or else she could end up worse than dead. Just like the first time, I was left holding my breath, and the end still shattered me. Mare’s heart broke and every bit of trust she harbored was obliterated. Everything she knew was ripped away and it messed me up good. Aveyard is great when it comes to the sting. And she stings a lot with the fierceness of a scorpion with dear Mare.

And the Princes! Let me faint for a moment here. Both Cal and Maven are stunning and crush-worthy in their own way. I blushed more than once. But, there’s really only one thing for me to say. I love Cal. He’s always thinking and from every angle, even though Mare thinks otherwise. He cares so much and it makes him a cautious person, which is understandable. I love this and how it matches to Mare’s boldness and her willingness to do what others can’t (More to come about this in Glass Sword review. Promise.). I totally ship Mal or Care or Mcare or whichever their ship name is. I like them together. Such an epic team, if not a heartbreaking one too.

Coming from the slums to the rich royalty, there was such a strong dynamic. There’s a darkness in both places. Each class struggles. The Reds because they live under the boots of Silvers. Silvers because they’re looking over their shoulder because they don’t trust each other at all and could kill each other for status. It’s really intense!

I also loved how the rebellion of the Scarlet Guard was born! Everything about it is so intricate! Like watching a plant poke up from soil and sprout and grow and spread. The rebellion just grew and grew and I was so enthralled! And this, because the war that has been waged for decades has finally broken the Reds.

Even in the beginning, The Scarlet Guard changed everything! Characters, places, the tone of the story. From this book, from the second Mare joins the rebellion, nothing will be the same. She’ll never be that same sixteen-year-old that just steals stuff. And I can’t get enough. For the guard!

The world of Reds and Silvers rich and dark. While it glimmers like gems, there’s a dread and depression and fear around every corner. I could almost taste it. So well done both in the Stilts and in the summer palace of the Silvers. Each place also made me feel really uneasy and unsafe, which is pretty impressive. I wouldn’t want to be caught dead in either place, yet Mare and her princes are.

 

Overall

Such an awesome book! I’m hooked! The supernatural abilities aren’t unique, but the way they’re written makes them unique! The writing makes them as fantastical as fairies and gods. It’s beautiful and scary and I’m so enchanted. Such a surprising book that left me on the edge of my seat wondering, who’s not making it out of this? I couldn’t get enough, honestly. A fresh and stunning book. And honestly? What I imagine to be GOT in the far future when the dragons die and Westeros evolves into something so much more.

 

Quotables:

“The gods rule us still. They have come down from the stars/ And they are no longer kind.” (Mare, p. 11)

“You are pretending to be raised Red, but you’re Silver by blood. You are no Red in the head, Silver in the heart.” (p. 95)

“We will rise. Red as the dawn.” (Will to Mare, p. 164)

“It’s our nature. We destroy. It’s the constant of our kind. No matter the color of blood, man will always fall.” (p. 227)

Through the Door of Their Minds (The Drawing of Three – A Book Review)

The Drawing of Three (The Dark Tower #2)
Author: Stephen King
Published: 1990

On Goodreads

Scarlet Reader

Amazon

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

Rated N for nightmarish, carnivorous lobstrosities with a hankering for human meat and psychotic mind-breaks that’ll leave you wondering if someone slipped you acid.

 

Three. This is the number of your fate.

Roland now follows the path that the Man in Black has set him on, knowing it will get him closer to the Tower. But is the deadly cost worth it? Dodging strange, monstrous crustaceans, the gunslinger follows his path, ready to draw three, as he’s been told he would.

Discovering mysterious doorways out on the beach wasteland, he enters America, as we know it. But he comes through those doorways through defiant Eddie Dean and smart Odetta Holmes. Joining together, they make their way through dangerous struggles and treacherous evils, unveiling that they need one another…for now.

They are getting closer to the Tower.

 

The Dark Tower series is one of the series on my New Year’s resolution and this is book 2 of 7 (technically 8, but I’m not including The Wind Through the Keyhole, though I will be reading it.)

 

This book was intense! Still a little drawn out, but those lobster creature-things were creepy! I also kept wondering what the hell they kept saying and if they were saying anything at all. They are vicious for sure. Fingers getting bitten off type of vicious.

Scarlet Reader

Giphy

I’m still reeling at what happened to Jake and crossing my fingers that Roland will cross paths with him again someday. The new additions, Eddie and Odetta, are a handful! Eddie is a heroin addict while Odetta is legless while also schizophrenic with an alternate personality. Totally wild and also puts a kink in Roland’s mission. I really liked the dynamic though. These two are given an opportunity to do something of higher power, like a calling.

While the story pretty much stands still in its setting of apocalyptic beach, so much is happening. King is fantastic at standing still, but making sure the reader sees the whole picture, while also getting into their heads with boundary-breaking stuff. Yep, stuff. The intricate, following a string to see where it goes stuff.

 

Overall

Now I’m invested. After the craziness and unexpected drops, I couldn’t put this book down. This series is still a mind-bending trip that let me wondering if I was on drugs or not. I imagine the next book will be even more intense and WTF-filled.

 

Quotables:

“If you have given up your heart for the Tower, Roland, you have already lost. A heartless creature is a beast. To be a beast is perhaps bearable, although the man who has become one will surely pay hell’s own price in the end, but what if you should gain your object?” (p. 265)

“Who’s gonna come through some magic door and save you, man? Do you know? I do. No one. You drew all you could draw.” (Eddie to Roland, p.461)

School of Fish Out of Water (Undertow – A Book Review)

Undertow (Undertow #1)
Author: Michael Buckley
Published: 2015

On Goodreads

Scarlet Reader

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt Half bolt

Rated A for Aquaman approved.

 

First, we feared them. Then we fought them. Now they might be our only hope.

Lyric Walker’s life is changed forever as is everyone’s in Coney Island when 30,000 warrior Alpha storm the beach shore. Now, a few years later, the small town has turned into a military zone and the government is ready to try an assimilate Alpha into society. Not everyone is on board with this.

Lyric get assigned to help with the integration by helping the crown prince of the Alpha, Fathom. While he is aggressive and resistant, she can’t help but to start falling for him. There’s something about him that isn’t all bad. It’s dangerous to feel this way though, for both of them.

More so, there is a greater threat on the horizon than the Alpha. The darkness that drew the remaining race to shore.

 

This was a wild and intensely action-packed book with tension seeping out of the cracks. I really enjoyed it! While I do get the Aquaman vibes, I do find this to be interestingly unique and original! The in-depth look at the Alpha is really nifty. They weren’t just some Adonis god-like race to melt at, though Fathom is pretty attractive hehe. Though they have some epic abilities, like controlling water and fast reflexes and mega strength as well as some unique weaponry. Fathom, the prince, can actually pop out bony swords from his arms. Alpha also take on the features and characteristics of creatures of the sea. It’s freaking awesome!

Scarlet Reader

Tenor

I loved all of the characters, even the assholes. They were all epic. Buckley really wrote some powerful people from the teens to the adults. I can’t find one I didn’t like, because even though there were characters I hated *cough* Mrs. Novakova *cough* it was for legitimate reasons! They were jerky, prejudice asshats. Just some powerful characters here!

I’ve also never read a book where Coney Island was the setting. It was wicked to get a close-up view. Crowded and mucky and not the Disneyland on the dock people imagine it is. In fact, Coney Island is turned into a scary place. (The cover art of it is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. And chilling. It’s that too.)

Scarlet Reader

The Tropix

The comical and honest look at racial lines in society was fantastic! Lyric gave such a great perspective on not only skin color, but culture, and with the Alpha, race. Diversity played a major role in this book and I really liked it. It was so well done and truly added more than just typical them versus us. It was everybody.

More so, the added element of domestic abuse and not just for humans but for the Alpha was heartbreaking. Both of these major themes expressed, in a sad way, that everyone shares these hardships in common. As well as these, they share their love for those they care about.

There was just so much more than I expected and I fell in love with this book.

Dead of Winter

There were many shocking twists and turns. I was caught off guard a few times. Being left guessing is one of my favorite things with a book and this one was successful. Unexpected romance, and expected, of course LOL. And the loss ripped all of it away. Stop ripping things and people I love away from me!

 

Overall

This is really different from other YA I’ve read. It’s humorous, yet filled with love and heartache. There’s such a real spin on this and it really added to the salty imagery. I can’t wait to be blown away in the next book. The ending really left me hanging! I have so many questions.

 

Quotables:

“There’s also this idea that the Alpha caused all the weird racism and xenophobia, too, but whatever. This part of town was always a hotbed of racial sludge, and the various groups never played nice.” (Lyric, p.34)

“When someone is grieving, even a kindness feels like a slap in the face.” (Lyric’s mom to Lyric, p. 265)

“What was I supposed to say to you, Bex? I’m half mermaid and I have the hots for Edward Scissor arms?” (Lyric to Bex, p. 308)

“Nothing will stop me, because I am bigger than the world; I make the sea tremble. I am a wild thing.” (Lyric, p. 376)

Evercrossed

Author: Elizabeth Chandler

It’s been a year since her boyfriend, Tristan died. Ivy has moved on and is doing better and hopes is afterlife is going well too. But, then she died and Tristan must protect her from whatever is after her.

 

Favorite Book: Game of Thrones was so good even after having seen the show so many times! I really enjoyed it, was completely enthralled and look forward to reading the rest of the novels!

 

Least Favorite Book: Evercrossed was a wreck; take the pun or leave it. I thought the Kissed By An Angel series would continue on with its wispy storytelling, with new material and such but it plummeted backwards and just disappointed me in the end.

 

So my goal didn’t pan out as I hoped thanks to the many issues I had this month (the explanation can be found on SP – Feb. 25th). BUT! March is coming and I’m so excited on what I have planned to read!

Your Grace…(A Game of Thrones – A Book Review)

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)
Author: George R. R. Martin
Published: 1997

On Goodreads

Game of Thrones - Scarlet Reader

S.R.

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

Rated G for the gory and glorious, though also unnecessary, joy with playing with swords for a massive chair.

 

“When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.”

Winter is coming…In a land when summers and winters can last years, there are dark forces of mythical proportions at work, seeking to get past the Wall, which protects the kingdom of Westeros.

The Hand of the King has died. A few believe it to be murder more than accidental. Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell is summoned by King Robert to serve as the new Hand. He doesn’t have much of a choice. As he takes on the responsibility, being the king voice and such while he’s off being drunk, Eddard Stark uncovers unsettling secrets that could unravel the kingdom. If he hopes to save the kingdom from what could be a devastating war for the great iron throne, he must proceed carefully with what he knows.

Across the sea, in the east, Daenerys Targaryen moves across the land with three sleeping dragon eggs, intent on taking back the iron throne as the original heir to the iron throne.

Tragedy. Betrayal. Victory. Allie. Enemies. A new deadly conflict shrouds the world in a game of thrones.

 

So, I’ve seen the TV show three times already. Who’s amped up for the final season!? I am! I’m also a weird nervous wreck, wondering how it’ll end. The show is phenomenal and so is the book. I really can’t wait to read the rest.

For me, I’m glad I watched the show before reading the book. As I began reading I realized that if I hadn’t gotten to the show first I wouldn’t have been into the book. It’s so jam-packed that it would’ve been incredibly overwhelming and I would’ve lost interest. I don’t know if anyone else has ever gotten that feeling.

Following multiple POVs the story converges around one specific thing. The iron throne which, in my opinion, equivalates to the one ring to rule them all. It grabs at the greedy part of men everywhere…and women. It’s unsettling, but at the same time, I’m feeling like Sméagol/Gollum going, “My prrecioous.”.

Scarlet Reader

Giphy

I was pulled into each of the characters’ individual stories, all of which intertwine in one way or another. My favorite characters to follow have to be Arya, Dany, and Jon. Arya is so feisty and wants nothing more than to be a fighter/warrior. Dany has a spark in her that seeks to lead. Whether she’d turn out to be a great leader or one that is feared and dreadful like her father. Jon is the great underdog right now. A bastard that gives his life to the Wall to serve as the commander’s errand boy basically. There’s greatness in him though, and it’s not because of the show that I say that. I see it in the story too.

The imagery was so vivid and breathtaking. It was so powerful that it was almost as if I was there. It is the cusp of a long, and possibly the worst yet, winter. Westeros is on the verge of crumbling into war after the death of the Hand of the King and, later on, the King himself. Tension is thicker than LA smog. While I knew what was coming, I was still shocked to the core.

The differences between the book and the TV show were obvious but didn’t take away from each other at all. They’re both pleasant. Each bit I came across in the book was a pleasant surprise.

Scarlet Reader

Mashable

I’m so excited to get to the next books. Following each character, I was left biting my nails like a crazy girl. When each chapter ended I couldn’t handle being left hanging. It drove me crazy, but in such a good way. I needed more!

This is top-notch fantasy and it’s only the beginning. No longer am I feeling shaky about reading this series.  I’m officially addicted and can’t wait to read the rest of the books. Up on the favorites shelf you go GOT. And I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE FINAL SEASON!

The Chase Is On… (The Gunslinger – A Book Review)

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1)
Author: Stephen King
Published: 1982

On Goodreads

Scarlet Reader

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltHalf bolt

Rated M for a complex, multi-dimensional mindfuck that you just can’t put down because you really want to figure it out more than that puzzle box from Hellraiser.

 

“The man in black fled across the dessert and the gunslinger followed.”

In a desolate reality that mirrors ours in horrifying ways. A lone gunslinger going by the name of Roland makes his way across the desert land with Jake from our reality. As a gunslinger, Roland is charged with protecting good, or whatever is left of it. His world has ‘moved on’ and the only way to salvage what’s left of it is to catch the man in black.

While the journey has been a long one already, Roland knows that the man in black has all of the answers and secrets that will guide him. See, this is only the beginning of the gunslinger’s journey toward the Dark Tower.

 

The Dark Tower series is one of the series on my New Year’s resolution and this is book 1 of 7 (technically 8, but I’m not including The Wind Through the Keyhole, though I will be reading it.)

 

How do I begin with this one?

Scarlet Reader

Giphy

This really was a complex mindfuck. With the utmost originality that can only come out of the mind of the King, this is a series of some epic fantasy. It doesn’t touch Lord of the Rings or any other fantasy series because it’s a league of its own. I don’t say that because this is better than them. It’s not. It’s on the level. I say it because it lives on a plane all its own with its own mythology, language, world. It has a universe all to itself that doesn’t touch anything else. It’s an original work.

I both enjoyed and disliked The Dark Tower. When I finished it, I decided that this came across as a primer/prologue than it did a book in series. You spend more time getting to know Roland and his world and what his journey will entail thden you do actually moving in any form of progression.

So, here comes the downside. While taking in what this series would entail, I found the book to be drawn out in detail. There were times where I thought I could fall asleep from boredom because it was so lengthy. I love attention to detail. It makes the story extremely immersive, but it felt overdone, like a burnt piece of barbeque. It comes across as dull at times and I just wanted to move forward.

Scarlet Reader

Imgur

Racing to catch up with the man in black proved to be tricky for Roland. There were many obstacles, some of which were put in place by the man in black. Dark and totally on the mark, Roland didn’t let anything get in his way to get to his objective. For me, it was haunting. I wonder if everything he did was worth what he got.

Side Note: I have seen the film for The Dark Tower and I must say it didn’t live up to what I imagined. One day, I hope to see this picked up by HBO or Starz or even Netflix so it can receive the amazing glory and following of that like GOT. It deserves to have the time it takes to tell an intricate tale like this.

Scarlet Reader

Consequence of Sound

 

Overall

Reading this book was like starring at a piece of artwork, in a museum, that you don’t understand. But, you’re going to stand there and stare at it until you discover it because it’s beautiful and it whispers some kind of secret and meaning. That’s kind of how it went down. Not a bad read, but damn if I wasn’t enthralled with semi-glazed over eyes. Don’t mistake that for me thinking this book royally sucked. It didn’t. It was fantastic. It’ll definitely need another read though.

 

Quotables:

 “Nineteen would open the secret. Nineteen was the secret.” (p. 56)

“While you travel with the boy, the man in black travels with your soul.” (p. 141)

“Time’s the thief of memory.” (p. 177)

Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

Hello book lovers!

Let’s get 2019 going shall we?

This year I want to go back a reread a few of my most favorite books. Some, I haven’t reviewed on here before, soo you’ll get to hear me geek out about them. Some, I have and maybe I’ll talk about them a little more. Some, I just I will not, and just bask in their glory.

I do have a New Year’s Resolution coming up, but still working on it. More news to come soon about it.

It is my goal to work harder at my dreams this year than I did last year. There are many things I want to accomplish, and I’m a big believer in not divulging until absolute certainty, so it’s all hush hush. For now.

One of my greatest wishes this year, as a book loving booknerd, is that we all read more. Enjoy words. Soak them in like ink to paper. I love reading and talking about what I’ve read. Being able to share that with you makes me giddily happy. I also hope for you that everything you work hard for, strive for, and long for, come to great success.

And finally, never give up and never stop believing. Maybe that sounds ridiculously cheesy. But, belief is harder than it sounds. No matter what you believe in, don’t give it up. It’s nearly impossible, if not totally, to get back once you’ve given it up. And believing in anything can be a feat in and of itself as well. In the difficulties and hardships that are working double-time to strangle our world, be strong, be brave, and (as Journey says) don’t stop believing.

Now…to make the awkward transition from intensity to the Midnight Tease where I tell you what I’m ready, will be reading, and will be reviewing. What are you doing up at this hour anyway? Just kidding. Us night owls, little fruit bats, and lightning bugs and crickets and other night life have got to stick together. Grab a snack, here’s what bookishness I’ve going on this month.

There you have it! Have an awesome January!

I know just in this last hour, I’ve finished A Series of Unfortunate events on Netflix. A phenomenal show that did wonders. I really do hope to see the next Lemony Snicket series done as well: Who Could That Be at This Hour? made into a series. There were a few hints toward it during ASOUE and I was having a ball, geeking out about it. The central theme came into play big time during this final season. Artistic, humorous, surprising, and brilliant. I may have been shaky about this series at first, some may even say wary and inclined to look away, but I’m glad I didn’t.

With the rambling of a sleep-lacking human out of the way, you have a fantastic new year, and a splendid January.
