Golden Son — Review

March 9, 2015

Golden Son is the second book in Pierce Brown’s Red Rising trilogy and I can assure you that it does not suffer from second book syndrome.

Darrow continues to live as a Gold, working to gain favor and influence in order to bring down the Society from within. But the Bellona are still after him and with multiple players in the game the dynamics are constantly changing.

Golden Son is gripping and fast-paced. I absolutely tore through it and now I’m a bit mad at Pierce Brown because I have to wait for the next book and if there’s one thing I’m not, it’s patient.

This series is gearing up to be a thrilling dystopian masterwork. Sometimes jarring in its violence and brutality, it shows characters battling with still-universal questions of love, loyalty, trust, and identity.
