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 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. Ender's Game meets The Hunger Games in this, the first in an extraordinary trilogy from an incredible new voice.

Ja to jednak jestem prostym człowiekiem. Lubię, kiedy opowieść zawiera w sobie jakiś pierwiastek dobra. I najlepiej, jeśli to dobro ostatecznie zwycięża. A tu co? Jedyna dobra postać umiera na samym początku. Główny bohater, Darrow, żyje w najbardziej zniewolonej i wykorzystywanej grupie społecznej,...
Set in a far distant future on Mars, Darrow works hard mining below the surface. Mars’s caste system has kept the population, and especially the Reds like Darrow, working hard for a better, brighter future for their children for generations. However, Darrow loses much even as he gains knowledge of t...
This book - wow. I LOVED it. I am so excited to read the next two books. But, I have like 6 books that were on hold and just came in and were electronically checked out to me. (UGH!) I told myself I would try to read as many Sunshine State books as I could during my break from school, so *grima...
When I started this book last Saturday, fairly early into the holiday weekend, I congratulated myself on my timing. I really didn’t know much at all about this series, but for some reason I had the impression that I’d have trouble putting it down and would therefore get through a good portion of it...
