Well goddamn that was intense - how will this end...
Had some of the struggles you expect for a second book in a trilogy, but still made for a great read
What Red Rising did to my brain, Golden Son quadruples. I didn't know that was possible. As a writer myself (no real credits yet), this world is intimidatingly complex and yet, as a reader, I grok it. Where it all started and why, what happened to so stratify the separations, and what is going wrong at the top is at once confusing and makes sense, as any complex world is. And while all that makes a great backdrop, I am caught and held by the characters. I wouldn't be enthralled without these characters, through Darrow's perceptions and shifting understandings.
If you have read Red Rising, you know exactly why you want Golden Son handy, though you don't necessarily require it immediately.
After Golden Son, you REQUIRE Morning Star and trust me, have it handy if you finish GS at 1 AM and would like to sleep. Thank you, Mr. Brown, for providing Darrow's response right away.
The way Darrow tells his story is so compelling that I have to remember to stop in calm moments when I need to go do life things. Even calm moments are so nice I want to stay. First person present tense isn't for every author, but it's for Pierce Brown, at least with Darrow.

"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. Praise for 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 "I don't know what Pierce Brown did before he started writing books, but whatever it was, he was wasting his time. Fast-paced, gripping, well-written--the sort of book you cannot put down. I am already on the lookout for the next one."--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 "Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow: Pierce Brown's empire-crushing debut is a sprawling vision of humanity's diaspora to the stars."--Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal "[A] great debut. The author gathers a spread of elements together in much the same way George R. R. Martin does."--Tor.com"--

I will read the third book because I'm kind of invested, but I'm not exactly looking forward to it. ( )
