Description


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.

Set in an imaginary kingdom, this novel presents a society divided by blood color—commoners have red blood, while those with silver blood form an elite class with supernatural abilities. Mare, a member of the red-blooded class, is one day noticed by the king for her special powers and absorbed into the life of the court. However, what they don't know is that she's an agent for the Scarlet Guard, who is in the midst of preparing a rebellion.
