Meet with us to discuss Pierce Brown's debut novel, Red Rising. This relentlessly entertaining book channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.
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. 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.
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 stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . .even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
