Review

Praise for Golden Son
-Gripping . . . Both author and lead character have cranked up the emotional stakes. . . . With Golden Son, [Pierce] Brown avoids the sophomore slump, charging the novel with the kind of dystopia-toppling action you'd expect in a trilogy ender, not a middle volume. On virtually every level, this is a sequel that hates sequels--a perfect fit for a hero who already defies the tropes. [Grade: ] A---Entertainment Weekly

-Stirring . . . Comparisons to The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones series are inevitable, for this tale has elements of both.---Kirkus Reviews

-Brown writes layered, flawed characters . . . but plot is his most breathtaking strength. . . . Every action seems to flow into the next.---NPR
-It's a far superior sequel, in fact: one of the rare breed of reads that improves upon its predecessor in every conceivable category. . . . In a word, Golden Son is stunning. Never mind how little we've seen of 2015: Among science fiction fans, it should be a shoo-in for book of the year.---Tor.com
-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
Praise for Pierce Brown's Red Rising

-[A] spectacular adventure . . . one heart-pounding ride . . . Pierce Brown's dizzyingly good debut novel evokes The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies, and Ender's Game. . . . [Red Rising] has everything it needs to become meteoric.---Entertainment Weekly

-[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
