Golden Son by Pierce Brown


Credit: Random House

A positively roller coaster of a book. In fact, the dialogue at a certain point in Golden Son left this ready a bit shaky.

Darrow's exploits in The Acadamey are directly tied to his fate in House Augustus. Things do not turn out as Darrow planned. Events are set in motion that deliver Darrow from certain death. As he did in Red Rising, Darrow's out-of-the-box thinking in Golden Son brings him to the cusp of glory. Will he fulfill Ares will for him, or will that fate be left to explore in Morning Star?
