The RED QUEEN Sequel Is Titled… (Plus Description!)

Harper Teen’s Epic Reads just announced the title of the RED QUEEN sequel!

Victoria Aveyard’s RED QUEEN was so highly anticipated that is hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List in its debut week. It was quickly optioned for the big screen and Elizabeth Banks (THE HUNGER GAMES, PITCH PERFECT) has signed on to direct the fantasy epic. Now, we’re finally getting some details about its sequel!

Epic Reads announced the RED QUEEN sequel title this morning, leading to lots of theories:


What exactly is the GLASS SWORD? A weapon someone yields? A nickname for a mental ability among the Silvers or the evolved Reds? A metaphor? Only time will tell!

To make the exciting reveal even better, we’ve also got a description of the book!

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control.

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: She is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors.

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat.

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

GLASS SWORD is available for pre-order now! The cover is expected within the next couple weeks.
