“I’m still playing games. This is just the deadliest yet.’ Darrow is a rebel forged by tragedy. For years he and his fellow Reds worked the mines, toiling to make the surface of Mars inhabitable. They were, they believed, mankind’s last hope. Until Darrow discovered that it was all a lie, and that the Red were nothing more than unwitting slaves to an elitist ruling class, the Golds, who had been living on Mars in luxury for generations. In RED RISING, Darrow infiltrated Gold society, to fight in secret for a better future for his people. Now fully embedded amongst the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his dangerous work to bring them down from within. It’s a journey that will take him further than he’s ever been before – but is Darrow truly willing to pay the price that rebellion demands?”
What began as an isolated display of strategic genius in Red Rising, now spills over into a far more encompassing effort to “break the chains.” The Sons of Ares are still active, the Jackal is still alive and Darrow faces more challenges than ever before. Sublime characterisation, authentic world building and more plot twists than G.O.T leaves readers with a tinge that will take days to fade. Read it, read it now.
