Waiting on Wednesday #16 Red Queen

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly awaiting!

Today's pick:

Publisher: Orion
Expected Release Date: February 10, 2015
Page Count: 320
Genre: YA

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army she gambles everything to win his freedom. A twist of fate leads her to the royal palace itself, where, in front of the king and all his nobles, she discovers a power of her own—an ability she didn't know she had. Except . . . her blood is Red.
To hide this impossibility, the king forces her into 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 her new position to aid the Scarlet Guard—the leaders of a Red rebellion. Her actions put into motion a deadly and violent dance, pitting prince against prince—and Mare against her own heart.
From debut author Victoria Aveyard comes a lush, vivid fantasy series where loyalty and desire can tear you apart and the only certainty is betrayal.
Everything about this book makes me desperately want to read it, it has an amazing AND intriguing cover plus the description says "Graceling meets The Selection" (faints from sheer excitement). Coincidentally I was looking through Edelweiss today and HarperCollins accepted my e-ARC request for Red Queen!!!!!! Which means I WONT HAVE TO WAIT to read it, however because of the gorgeous cover I will do everything I can to get a normal ARC.
