In the third instalment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl’s spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Following on from Glass Sword, Mare Barrow has been taken prisoner, powerless without her lightning and tormented by her lethal mistakes. She is at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal who is now King. Maven continues weaving his dead mother’s web in an attempt to maintain control over his country – and his prisoner.

Mare is bearing the weight of Silent Stone (a stone that oppresses magical ability), her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organising, training and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal (prince hottie and the rightful heir), the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare’s heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire – leaving Norta to burn all the way down.
