Synopsis

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow-- and Reds like him-- are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity' s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society' s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

About the Author

American science fiction author, Pierce Brown lived in seven different states growing up, which may have given him the edge needed to have a vivid imagination with which to entertain himself. He spent his childhood doing the normal kid things such as building forts and setting traps for friends in the woods, or in the desert. So, after graduating from Pepperdine University, he had plenty of pretend episodes to transfer into his first novel. He lived in his professor's garage where he wrote his first novel, Red Rising.

Brown majored in political science and had several jobs before becoming a true author. He had a variety of jobs in politics, was a page at NBC, worked as an errand person on the Disney lot at ABC, and was an aid with a US Senate campaign, which he says gave new meaning to the term sleep deprivation. He now lives in Los Angeles, where he spins tales of spaceships, wizards, ghouls, and many bizarre things.

Pierce Brown's works include: the Red Rising series.......Red Rising, 2014, Golden Son, 2015, Morning Star, 2016, Iron Gold, 2018, and Dark Age, 2019.
