Red Rising by Pierce Brown follows Darrow and his fellow Reds as they toil in the brutal mines of Mars, enslaved by the cruel Golds who promise their labor will someday make the surface habitable. Hope for a better future keeps the Reds working, but an incredible tragedy reveals Darrow's entire world is a lie. To expose the Golds' treachery, Darrow is thrust into an epic role of espionage. Can he trick the Golds and save his people?
Suggested for fans of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games and William Goldman's The Lord of the Flies, this has a dark and twisted power of its own that will captivate readers and leave them wanting more.
