Today’s featured book is…
Author: Pierce Brown
Series: Red Rising #3
Publisher: Del Rey
Publication Date: February 9th 2016
Red Rising thrilled readers and announced the presence of a talented new author. Golden Son totally changed the game and took the story of Darrow to the next level. Now comes the exhilarating conclusion to the Red Rising Trilogy: Morning Star.
Born a lowly Red in the mines of Mars, Darrow lost his beloved wife to the treacherous Gold overlords. Vowing to fight for the future that his wife believed in, Darrow joins a secret revolutionary group and is remade into a Gold so that he can infiltrate the ruling class and bring them down from the inside. Now, after years of hiding amongst the Golds, Darrow is finally ready to declare open revolution and throw off the chains of oppression. Nothing in Darrow’s world has been easily won, and this final fight will be the most harrowing of all.
Why We’re Waiting On It
After being completely destroyed by Red Rising and Golden Son, we’re subjecting ourselves to one final bout of torture. Golden Son left off on such a cliffhanger at the very last minute that we’re not even sure Darrow’s mission can be salvaged. Pierce Brown is a (rather yummy) master of science fiction strategy and war, and his characters are more than just words on paper. We need to know that our favourite characters are ok (SEVRO!), and who it was that betrayed our hero. But most of all, we need to know if Darrow can break the chains!
