Descriere

Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in MORNING STAR , the second in an extraordinary trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of RED RISING.

'I'm still playing games. This is just the deadliest yet.'

Darrow is a rebel forged by tragedy. For years he and his fellow Reds worked the mines, toiling to make the surface of Mars inhabitable. They were, they believed, mankind's last hope. Until Darrow discovered that it was all a lie, and that the Red were nothing more than unwitting slaves to an elitist ruling class, the Golds, who had been living on Mars in luxury for generations.

In RED RISING, Darrow infiltrated Gold society, to fight in secret for a better future for his people. Now fully embedded amongst the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his dangerous work to bring them down from within. It's a journey that will take him further than he's ever been before - but is Darrow truly willing to pay the price that rebellion demands?

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.


Notă biografică

Pierce Brown is the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Red Rising "and" Golden Son." While trying to make it as a writer, Brown worked as a manager of social media at a startup tech company, toiled as a peon on the Disney lot at ABC Studios, did his time as an NBC page, and gave sleep deprivation a new meaning during his stint as an aide on a U.S. Senate campaign. He lives in Los Angeles, where he is at work on his next novel.


Recenzii

Praise for "Golden Son"
"Gripping . . . Both author and lead character have cranked up the emotional stakes. . . . With "Golden Son, "[Pierce] Brown avoids the sophomore slump, charging the novel with the kind of dystopia-toppling action you'd expect in a trilogy ender, not a middle volume. On virtually every level, this is a sequel that hates sequels--a perfect fit for a hero who already defies the tropes. [Grade: ] A"--"Entertainment Weekly"
" "
"Stirring . . . Comparisons to "The Hunger Games "and" Game of Thrones" series are inevitable, for this tale has elements of both.""--Kirkus Reviews"
" "
"Brown writes layered, flawed characters . . . but plot is his most breathtaking strength. . . . Every action seems to flow into the next."--NPR
"It's a far superior sequel, in fact: one of the rare breed of reads that improves upon its predecessor in every conceivable category. . . . In a word, "Golden Son" is stunning. Never mind how little we've seen of 2015: Among science fiction fans, it should be a shoo-in for book of the year."--"Tor.com"
"Pierce Brown is a prodigy. As great as the first book of the Red Rising Trilogy is, "Golden Son" is even better. A wild ride full of suspense, intrigue, and serious ass-kicking bravado, it's expertly written and emotionally engaging, with top-notch universe-building that begs for further exploration. I want more!"--Christopher Golden, "New York Times" bestselling author of" Snowblind"
"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."--"Publishers Weekly"
Praise for Pierce Brown's "Red Rising"
"[A] spectacular adventure . . . one heart-pounding ride . . . Pierce Brown's dizzyingly good debut novel evokes "The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies, "and" Ender's Game." . . . ["Red Rising"] has everything it needs to become meteoric."--"Entertainment Weekly"
" "
"[A] top-notch debut novel . . . "Red Rising" ascends above a crowded dystopian field.""--USA Today"
" "
"Compulsively readable and exceedingly entertaining . . . [a] must for both fans of classic sci-fi and fervent followers of new school dystopian epics.""--Examiner.com"
" "
"A story of vengeance, warfare and the quest for power . . . reminiscent of "The Hunger Games" and "Game of Thrones."""--Kirkus Reviews"
" "
"Fast-paced, gripping, well-written--the sort of book you cannot put down."--Terry Brooks, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Sword of Shannara"
" "
"Pierce Brown has done an astounding job at delivering a powerful piece of literature that will definitely make a mark in the minds of readers.""--The Huffington Post"
