I'm a little late to the party in reading this series. It's been on my TBR list for a while. I'm going to review all three together, but will avoid spoilers. This is a wonderful series. At first I classified it as YA, but it's really New Adult or a Crossover genre with adult. I also think it will ap...

The follow-up to Red Rising, this one really ratchets things up as Darrow continues his studies of the art of war under Augustus all the while wondering what his role in the Sons of Ares revolution still is. I really enjoyed how Brown further developed key characters and presented them in a very int...

Note: You really need to read Book 1, Red Rising, to understand this book. This book picks up several months (a year?) after the end of Red Rising. It’s a space battle! Well, it’s a training space battle for the Academy. Darrow and his crew finish out the contest well enough, but then Darrow is publ...

Ok, so I LOVED this second book in the Red Rising trilogy. Darrow is a great main character, flaws and all. It breaks my heart all he goes through. Once again you may think you know what is happening, but just when things seem good... BAM...something unexpected and usually bad happens. Lots of feels...

Please understand that my rating isn’t the same as the Goodreads system and that when I give 3-stars, it means that the book was okay for me. If I were to rate this book based on the Goodreads rating system, this book would probably be 2 stars. One thing that really, really annoys me is that there i...

This is the second book in the Red Rising series. I still can’t stay I’m hooked, but I did enjoy it more than the first one. It held my attention a bit better, and it felt a little less generic. I don’t have much to write about it by way of review, though. There isn’t much I can say without spoi...

Golden Son is an excellent follow-up to Red Rising. A bloody, gory, brutal, excellent follow-up. The kind that makes Darrow remember fondly his days at the Institute. You know, back when only a dozen or so people died because of decisions he made. Oh, the carefree days of youth! One of the things ...

You don't review the second book of a trilogy. You read it as fast as you can so you can get to the third book. I'll say only this: Brilliant isn't bright enough to describe how this book shines. Now leave me alone. I'm reading book 3. The Value of a Star: Ratings Explained

This review may contain some spoilers for the first book in the series, Red Rising and some spoilers for this book. You probably shouldn't read this review unless you're caught up with the series. Go read the book instead. This book kicks off two years after Darrow won the war games rather spectac...
