Pierce Brown talks 'Red Rising' trilogy, reveals the cover of book 3 -- exclusive


If there’s a void in your life that can only be filled by a sci-fi adventure book reminiscent of Star Wars, Ender’s Game, and a dozen space operas in between, fill it with Pierce Brown’s endlessly exciting Red Rising trilogy.

Brown kicked off the series in 2014 with Red Rising—in which readers met Darrow, a low-born miner in a color-coded caste hierarchy who joins a group of revolutionaries intent on bringing down the Golds, the highest level of society. In this January’s Golden Son, Darrow is fully embedded in the Golds and sets his sights on turning the society’s most prominent families against each other.

We chatted with Brown about what’s to come in the book three—and what he was thinking about that ending in book two. (Warning: spoilers ahead.)  READ FULL STORY
