And they’re swooning over the author!! 😉
Michelle: I started reading Red Rising and boy am I on a fantastic book run! I get why this one was hyped to me and I am going right into Golden Son after!
Fabi: Michelle I’m rereading Red Rising before starting Golden Son too. It was a 5 star for me the first time and amazingly it’s even better the second time. There are so many quotes I want to save from this book. Pierce Brown is a genius. He became an auto buy for me with his very first book.
Michelle: Hey yeah Fabi Red Rising is fantastic! I tore through half of it last night and cannot wait to get home like I literally have to talk myself out of sneak reading it today!
Michelle: Ahh finished Red Rising Fabi and I’m officially a huge fan and addicted to this series! LOVED Darrow and felt everything along with him. I started Golden Son today and the reviews look even better for this one not that my rating can go higher because I’m with ya that it was 5 stars all the way!
Fabi: Isn’t Darrow amazing in all his perfect imperfection? I can only think to describe him as so very “human” in his alphaness.
Michelle: Fabi, I got through it so fast because I stayed up two nights super late since I couldn’t put it down! I love every flaw of Darrows truly and his growth is inspiring and real. When this book is made into a movie, I wish them luck because they will never capture it.
Michelle: Let me just say Fabi, you think you know where Golden Son is going and then that’s blown up and I’m left scratching my head. Soooooo good and I’m only 1/3 in!
Cheryl: Fabi and Michelle, Universal studios bought the movie rights. He’s writing the screenplay.
Fabi: Woohoo! I knew it. It just had to go on the big screen. Ender’s Game and Hunger Games were awesome on the big screen. Michelle you’re psychic. Cheryl and Bev thanks for the confirmation. Pierce Brown is headed towards “most eligible bachelor” status quick.
Carol: After finishing up the Hunger Games movie last weekend, I was in the mood for something similar. I picked up Red Rising by Pierce Brown. I read through the night until 4 am. Yesterday, I read his second book, Golden Son! This series does not disappoint! It was amazing and well worth this book fog that will likely stick with me until Feb when book 3 concludes this wonderfully surprising series!
About book #1:
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.
But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
