Audio Book Summary

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender's Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown's genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within. A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown's continuing status as one of fiction's most exciting new voices.

    The narrator was good. A must read series that I hope is brought properly to the big screen!

    I am loving this author. The characters are engaging, story plot unpredictable and thrilling. This book is oh so addicting, I didn't want it to be finished. Can't wait for the next book. Also the narration is on point makes characters easy to follow.

    Great story concept, well developed and engaging characters, and the sci fi action is thrilling. No anticlimax here! However, as much as i appreciate laying bear the complex darkness of mankind, its taken to an extreme here. Ive only reached the end of the second book so im hoping it will balance out. But as it stands its feel hopeless and frustrating to the point of pulling you out of the story and needing to distance yourself from the characters youre supposed to feel for. Eventually i was able to start predicting the next betrayal and death of the innocent. I need to take a break before trying on the next book, but if it keeps digging its heals into the repetitive depressive violent horror it was so heavy handed with in this one i cant finish the series for my own mental health. Thats said, it does feel highly appropriate for the times we’re in. Maybe thats what makes it hit home a little too hard.

    Amazing. Since finishing it I’ve been looking for another series to grab me like the red rising collection has. I can’t wait to finish the 6th book. The narrator nails Darrow’s passion and changes the experience.

    I love sci fi / fantasy but expect the best in writing, plot, character development etc growing up on LOR, GOT, Hobbit, Pern series and anything by J Butcher. This novel was far and away better than the first. I had to force myself to finish that one as the Institute began to feel like pointless violence. I am so glad I did!! Will be going on to book3 immediately!

    A truly fantastic book (series), And the narrator is superb. My son and I have listened to the first two books on our way to various activities, and often we decide at the end we would rather have listened then do the activity LOL highly recommend We can’t wait to start the third!
