Review: Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Thursday, January 8, 2015
Why I chose this book: 
After devouring Red Rising, the first book in this trilogy, I became an instant, and rather rabid, fanatic. So, when the lovely and gracious Amanda dangled before me the idea of an ARC to review, I could hardly keep my giddy joy at bay. 


Golden Son by Pierce Brown
Publisher: Del Ray (Random House)
Publish Date: January 6th, 2015
Format: ARC
Genre: Adult, Young Adult, Science Fiction

Synopsis:
With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within. A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Songuarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices. (Goodreads)

Why I Chose this Book: 
So, I’m a sucker for dystopias. Science-fiction? Hand it over. Science-fiction riddled dystopias set on Mars? Get out of my way. I was intrigued by this book to say the least, and by the time I put it down, I was fangirling like a maniac. 


Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Publisher: Del Ray (Random House)
Publish Date: January 28th, 2014
Format: ARC
Genre: Adult, Young Adult, Science Fiction
Synopsis:
The Earth is dying. Darrow is a Red, a miner in the interior of Mars. His mission is to extract enough precious elements to one day tame the surface of the planet and allow humans to live on it. The Reds are humanity's last hope.

Or so it appears, until the day Darrow discovers it's all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations, by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down on Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.

Until the day that Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside. But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda. (Goodreads)
