Description

'Homer meets Homeland in deep space' in the third novel of the Red Rising trilogy, the crashing conclusion to the story that began in RED RISING and continued in GOLDEN SON.

Darrow is the reaper of Mars. Born to toil, carved to fight, destined to lead. But he is a broken man. Exposed as a Red in a world ruled by Golds, he has been captured and tortured until he is something less than human.

And yet, he is humanity's last chance.

He must call on every last ounce of strength in facing a godlike, ruthless enemy.

Darrow was born a Red. He became a Gold. Now he must transcend them all and become the hero his people believe he is.

Review quote

RED RISING wouldn't exist without the countless classics it takes its cues from, but this great debut builds a formidable fortress upon their familiar foundations, making such interesting alterations along the way that its piecemeal parts are essentially rendered unrecognisable. Like mankind has in the past, Pierce Brown reaches for the stars, and mostly hits that monumental mark. * http://www.tor.com/blogs/2014/01/book-review-red-rising-pierce-brown * The heart-stopping excitement of the Hunger Games meets the pulse-pounding majesty and complexity of Game of Thrones, all wrapped up in the visionary beauty and melancholy of Blade Runner... A shot of adrenalin for your imagination. * Star Magazine * With all of the tension of The Hunger Games and heady dose of savagery that lives somewhere in the space between The Lord of the Flies and ancient Greek mythology that revels in the violent deeds of the deities of old, RED RISING is compulsively readable and exceedingly entertaining. The blend of familiar and unfailingly effective machinations that clash with the stark new reality Brown has created make this tale a must for both fans of classic sci-fi and fervent followers of new school dystopian epics. * http://fantasyreviewbarn.com/dystopia-review-red-rising-by-pierce-brown/ * It has hints of Harry Potter and Hunger Games, but it is its own animal. And it is not YA. The writing is excellent and the story is better. This is one terrific fantasy book, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. * Terry Brooks * Incredible Sci-Fi Cross Between 'Hunger Games' And 'Enders Game' Pulls It Off * http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/20483/20131023/red-rising-review-incredible-sci-fi-cross.htm * RED RISING is what The Hunger Games should have been. * http://www.fictionvortex.com/2013/07/red-rising-by-pierce-brown/ * Pierce Brown's relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. * http://www.risingshadow.net/library?action=book&book_id=41137 * Pierce offers a Hollywood-ready story with plenty of action and thrills * http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-345-53978-6 * Multilayered and seething with characters who exist in a shadow world between history and myth, much as in Frank Herbert's Dune...An ambitious and satisfying conclusion to a monumental saga. * Kirkus *

About Pierce Brown

Pierce Brown is the author of Red Rising, the first installment in a science fiction trilogy. Though Brown was born in Denver, Colorado, his origins are a little more diverse, having called seven states home (Colorado, North Carolina, Arizona, Iowa, Texas, Washington, and California). Now twenty-four, he splits his time between Seattle and Los Angeles.

Before becoming a full-time writer, Brown spent time working as an executive aide on a U.S. Senate Campaign, a script runner at ABC, a freelance web producer, and eventually an NBC Page. His degree from Pepperdine University is in Economics and Political Science.
