Pierce Brown exploded onto the scene with his New York Times bestselling debut novel Red Rising, which garnered mountains of praise and comparisons to the work of Suzanne Collins, George R.R. Martin, and William Golding.
Enthusiastic early reviews are pouring in for Golden Son:
“Moving the story from the tight confines of the Institute actually makes this an even better novel than Brown’s breakout debut. The scope of the conflict is larger—it’s not a child’s game anymore but a real battle for the future of the solar system. Darrow remains a fascinating yet tortured martyr, never able to grab any personal happiness when he knows how much rests on his shoulders.”
—Library Journal (starred review)
“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.”
