Mare Barrow, dix-sept ans, tente de survivre dans une société qui la traite comme une moins que rien. Quand elle s'avère détenir des pouvoirs magiques dont elle ignorait l'existence, sa vie change du tout au tout. Enfermée dans le palais de la famille royale, promise à un prince, elle va devoir apprendre à déjouer les intrigues de la cour, à maîtriser un pouvoir qui la dépasse, et à reconnaître ses ennemis."
Mare Barrow a le sang rouge, comme la plupart des habitants de Norta. Mais comme les seigneurs de Norta, qui se distinguent par leur sang couleur de l'argent, elle possède un pouvoir extraordinaire, celui de contrôler la foudre et l'électricité. Pour les dirigeants de Norta, elle est une anomalie, une aberration. Une dangereuse machine de guerre. Alors qu'elle fuit la famille royale et Maven, le prince qui l'a trahie, Mare fait une découverte qui change la donne : elle n'est pas seule.
D'autres Rouges, comme elle, cachent l'étendue de leurs pouvoirs. Traquée par Maven, Mare fait face à sa nouvelle mission : recruter une armée, rouge et argent. Aussi rouge que l'aube, plus rapide qu'un éclair d'argent. Capable de renverser ceux qui les oppriment depuis toujours. Mais le pouvoir est un jeu dangereux, et Mare en connaît déjà le prix.
« N'importe qui peut trahir n'importe qui. » Mare Barrow, Rouge dotée des pouvoirs des Argents, a eu tort de l'oublier. Après Maven, c'est maintenant Cal qui l'abandonne. Alors Mare se jure d'assurer, quoi qu'il lui en coûte, la liberté et la protection des Rouges et des Sangs Neufs. Et pour cela, quoi de mieux que de renverser une fois pour toutes le royaume de Norta ? À commencer par la couronne sur la tête de Maven...
Mais personne ne peut gagner seul une guerre : pour unir enfin les Rouges et vaincre Maven, Mare devra choisir avec soin ses alliés, invoquer toute sa puissance et embrasser son destin. Car ce combat les mettra tous à l'épreuve, mais tous ne survivront pas...
Dans cet ultime volet, Victoria Aveyard nous livre le fabuleux point final de sa série au succès international, Red Queen.
Mare Barrow a échangé sa liberté contre celle de ses amis. Retenue prisonnière par l'homme qu'elle aimait autrefois et désormais roi, elle est dans l'incapacité d'utiliser son pouvoir et subit maintes humiliations et mauvais traitements. Pendant ce temps, la rébellion continue de s'organiser, et d'étendre son influence, plus que jamais décidée à lutter contre l'oppresseur. Mais en l'absence de la faiseuse d'éclairs, qui mènera cette armée au bout de son ambition ?
