Pierce Brown - Red Rising

Trilogy: Red Rising, Golden Son, Morning Star

Red rising is what happens when you cross-bread Brave New World with The Maze Runner and the Game of Thrones. Even though the book’s concepts are not original, the way how Pierce Brown puts them together is incredibly amusing and propelled me into a two-week binge read of the whole trilogy.

In this science-fiction dystopian novel, the main hero is a kid from the lowest cast in the solar system. He’s about to stir up an uprising for a better world and for democracy which happens to be a dirty word. The whole story happens on Mars, and instead of saying more, I recommend you get the book and read it. But be warned, it’s similar to Game of Thrones addictiveness.
