Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Picking up where Golden Son (2014), the second book in Brown's Red Rising trilogy, left off, the final entry opens with Darrow imprisoned by the elite Gold society he infiltrated. For Darrow, exposed as a Red and betrayed by his former cohorts, all hope seems lost until two new allies help him, and one of the Gold warriors loyal to him breaks out of prison. Darrow rejoins the revolutionary group that recruited him, the Sons of Ares, now led by his good friend, Sevro. But Sevro's warring tactics are vastly different from Darrow's, and Darrow realizes he must rebuild his confidence and retake his leadership if the rebels are to have any hope of succeeding. What follows is a page-turning epic filled with twists and turns, heartbreaks and daring gambles. In addition to a fabulously imagined universe, what makes Brown's thrilling odyssey so unique is Darrow himself. He's a hero who feels too much rather than too little, a man who not only recognizes he's not an island but knows that his strength comes from his chosen family of friends who fight alongside him. The conclusion to Brown's saga is simply stellar.--Huntley, Kristine Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the excellent closing book of Brown's Red Rising trilogy, revolutionary Darrow is given a second chance to overthrow the government of a class-based future society obsessed with Ancient Rome and segregated by color-coded functions. Red-born Darrow's attempt to incite revolution while hiding among the godlike Golds, rulers of the Solar System, has failed, but it inspired an open revolt. Darrow struggles to figure out whom to trust; uniting an interplanetary uprising requires unstable and unpalatable alliances. His decisions often make him barely better than the oppressors he seeks to overthrow, blowing apart the all-too-overused trope of a plucky good-hearted band overcoming a corrupt oligarchy. Brown's vivid, first-person prose puts the reader right at the forefront of impassioned speeches, broken families, and engaging battle scenes that don't shy away from the gore as this intrastellar civil war comes to a most satisfying conclusion.
