A young girl attempting to evade going to war ends up in a battle between the Reds and the Silvers.
Our blood runs red and makes us equal, but in Mare’s world having red blood makes her a second-class citizen. Those with silver blood are considered of noble blood, a gift from the gods. Silver bloods also special capabilities like mind control, super strength, and element manipulation. When Mare sneaks into their world hoping to pocket enough money to hide from being drafted into the war, a freak accident leaves her center stage and she is quickly swept into the political war between the classes. Did Mare spare her life from the frontlines only to be a soldier of another kind?
