Golden Son (Red Rising, #2) 08, Jan

Rating: 5/5 stars

Genre: Space Opera, Science Fiction

What do you live for? 

Money? Fame? Glory? Love? Family? Ambition? 

For the autumn leaves that rustle under your feet? For the smell of the soil after rain? For the juicy peaches that melt in your mouth? For the sound of the tumultuous waves when they reach the shore? For the laughter of a child that views the world as a wonder?

Darrow au Andromedus fights for the freedom, the opportunity to live for the above. For an oppressed people that hides in the shadows of the so-called superiors for centuries. But in order to escape the monster, you either hide or fight. And fighting is the path, the painful, bloody, sinister path Darrow chose. Betray your friends. Scheme with your enemies. Rise next to people who stole your everything. Alienate those who genuinely care about you. And in doing so, become the monster yourself.

Unbelievable… It wasn’t an exaggeration when literally everyone told me the sequels to Red Rising are much better, Golden Son is truly an incredible installment in the trilogy. I praised Red Rising, I enjoyed reading it so much and yet it pales in comparison to its sequel. I started reading Golden Son on 8th January, the day I turned 28, finished it in 3 days and I’m so lucky to have chosen this book to be my first read in my new age.

 This book lacked much of the nail-biting suspense and lightening-quick action of the previous book.
