Red Rising, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


***The first book in the incredible New York Times bestselling series*** The Earth is dying.

Darrow is a Red, a miner in the interior of Mars. His mission is to extract enough precious elements to one day tame the surface of the planet and allow humans to live on it.

The Reds are humanity's last hope. Or so it appears, until the day Darrow discovers it's all al 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 on Darrow and his fellows as slave labour, to be exploited and worked to death without a second thought.

Until the day that Darrow, with the help of a mysterious group of rebels, disguises himself as a Gold and infiltrates their command school, intent on taking down his oppressors from the inside.

But the command school is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only student with an agenda. Break the chains. Live for more.

Review by

Darrow has watched his life be treated as disposable, now he has a chance to be a member of the ruling class and fight for the rights of all. In a world where the elite fight for the power to be in charge, now they're in a battlefield and it's a fight for survival.It's interesting, there were times when it didn't quite work and the start was quite slow, but once I got into it it flowed quite quickly.
