Red Rising

We rated this book:


The book takes place on a Mars colony in the future where a caste system sorted by colors has made many of the people slaves without them even knowing, and everything they have been working towards is based all upon a lie. Once the lie finally surfaces and the truth comes out, it will change everything and a leader will rise from the depths to save humanity. This is Darrow’s life on Mars at the age of 16, a Red, drilling the planet for what he hopes is the answer. Even though he is young, he is married to the love of his life, Eo, and it is all about to change when he learns the truth and loses the one he dearly loves. When you have already lost it all, what is there to lose, so let the battle begin!

Red Rising was incredibly mind spinning. Your emotions will spin out of control as you proceed through the chapters alongside Darrow, filled with sadness, grief, hate, pity, and all with little remorse as you attempt to bring down the Golds, restore the people from the lies and from the game. There is quite a bit of explicit detail in this book as far as fighting goes, and this helps feeds the emotions of the characters and put the story in line. I could definitely see this coming out as a movie in the future. If you are looking for your next edge of the seat book, look no further!
