Amazon.com Review
An Amazon Best Book of the Month, January 2015: One of the pleasures of author Pierce Brown’s world building is the juxtaposition of the primitive and high-tech: blood feuds fought with complex weaponry, a game of truth mediated by lie-detecting scorpions, and, of course, an antiquated class system in a world where carvers can make a Red into a Gold. In Golden Son there is no shortage of deception or heroics and the action never wanes. There is no second book slump here, instead Brown amps up the tension by putting Darrow into ever greater physical and emotional conflict. Just like Red Rising, the first book in Brown’s series, the end of Golden Son has me counting the days until the next (and final) book is released. –Seira Wilson

Review
Advance praise for Golden Son

“Pierce Brown is a prodigy. As great as the first book of the Red Rising Trilogy is, Golden Son is even better. A wild ride full of suspense, intrigue, and serious ass-kicking bravado, it’s expertly written and emotionally engaging, with top-notch universe-building that begs for further exploration. I want more!”—Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of Snowblind

“The stakes are even higher than they were in Red Rising, and the twists and turns of the story are every bit as exciting. The jaw-dropper of an ending will leave readers hungry for the conclusion to Brown’s wholly original, completely thrilling saga.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Dramatic . . . the rare middle book that loses almost no momentum as it sets up the final installment.”—Publishers Weekly

“Darrow is an assertive hero. . . . Comparisons to The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones series are inevitable, for this tale has elements of both.”—Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Pierce Brown’s Red Rising

“[A] top-notch debut novel . . . Red Rising ascends above a crowded dystopian field.”—USA Today

“Compulsively readable and exceedingly entertaining . . . [a] must for both fans of classic sci-fi and fervent followers of new school dystopian epics.”—Examiner.com

“A story of vengeance, warfare and the quest for power . . . reminiscent of The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Fast-paced, gripping, well-written—the sort of book you cannot put down.”—Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of The Sword of Shannara

“Pierce Brown has done an astounding job at delivering a powerful piece of literature that will definitely make a mark in the minds of readers.”—The Huffington Post
