So there I am, minding my own business, reviewing the options for library ebooks and I see Red Rising. I was unaware of the story, I just remember hearing that it was good from someone. When I told my co-worker that I was next in line for the book, he excitedly told me how much he loved the book.
I loved it too.
I spent the next 6 weeks reading the trilogy. It was lovely, well written, gory as fuck, and had space fights.
Normally I would zone out at any mention of war or military strategy, but Pierce Brown is an incredible story teller. He made these huge 600ish page books incredibly engaging. Every night I squealed for one more page.
I hope you read this, I hope you follow Darrow into a new world and that you enjoy every bit of Sevro.
