Golden Son by Pierce Brown

Red Rising is a 2014 science fiction novel by American author Pierce Brown, the first of his Red Rising trilogy. I did enjoy it..

The critically acclaimed sequel, Golden Son, was released in January 2015.

Golden Son

Sadly it was not nearly as engaging to me as the first book.

The hero in a dystopian future is trying to bring down  a genetically-engineered elite is ruling the universe. A good premise.

But the story wandered. Rambled. I found the plot illogical at times.

The writing is not sophisticated. It seems targeted to teenage boys.

The third novel, Morning Star, was released in February 2016. I’ll skip it.
