Year Published: 2015

Publisher: Gale Cengage Learning (Large Print)

Reading Level:  Young Adult

With shades of The Hunger GamesEnder’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 Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.

"I am of the gens Julii." She stands slowly, anger uncoiling like a razor.  "My family trades in commerce enough to buy continents.  Who could afford to purchase my honor?  If...one day I become your enemy, I will tell you.  And I will tell you why."
"Everyone's honest til they're caught in a lie."
Her laugh is husky and makes me feel small and boyish, reminding me she's seven years older than I.  "Then stay, Reaper.  Trust in chance.  Trust in friends.  Hide here till someone buys your contract, and pray they didn't do it just to serve you up to the Bellona like a suckling pig."
I weigh the odds and extend a hand to help her up. "Well, when you put it that way..." 
After I finished reading "Red Rising," I really wanted to pick up the sequel "Golden Son" and I'm loving it so far!!!
