Darrow is a Helldiver. A pioneer of Mars. Born to slave beneath the earth so that one day; future generations might live above it. He is a Red - humankind's lowest caste. But he has something the Golds - the ruthless ruling class - will never understand. He has a wife he worships; a family who give him strength. He has love. And when they take that from him; all that remains is revenge . . .
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.
Darrow is a Helldiver; one of a thousand men and women who live in the vast caves beneath the surface of Mars; generations of people who spend their lives toiling to mine the precious elements that will allow the planet to be terraformed. Just knowing that; one day; people will be able to walk the surface of the planet is enough to justify their sacrifice. The Earth is dying; and Darrow and his people are the only hope humanity has left. Until the day Darrow learns that it is all a lie. That Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations; by a class of people calling themselves the Golds. A class of people who look down at Darrow and his fellows as slave labour; to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought. Until the day Darrow; with the help of a mysterious group of rebels; disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their society.
He ended centuries of Gold rule; broke the chains of an empire; and now he's the hero of a brave new republic. But at terrible cost. At the edge of the solar system; the grandson of the emperor he murdered dreams of revenge. In his hidden fortress in the oceans of Venus; the Ash Lord lies in wait; plotting to crush the newborn democracy. And; at home; a young Red girl who's lost everything to the Rising questions whether freedom was just another Gold lie. In a fearsome new world where Obsidian pirates roam the Belt; famine and genocide ravage Mars; and crime lords terrorise Luna; it's time for Darrow and a cast of new characters from across the solar system to face down the chaos that revolution has unleashed.
