Red Rising

Red Rising - Pierce Brown I received this book through Goodreads first reads.

This book is awesome. If you thought Hunger Games was good. You will LOVE Red Rising. I will admit: I am not a huge fan of dystopian fiction, much less YOUNG ADULT Dystopian fiction although I did read and enjoy Hunger Games. But this book is not Hunger Games.

The book delves into the dark side of humanity. In a futuristic world, where everyone's rank is determined by their color- Reds are workers/slaves, Pinks are for pleasure, etc. At the top of the chain are Golds. Darrow, the main character is a Red, from a mining colony who believes he has been sent to be ambassadors and make the planet fit for the rest of humanity. Little does he know he and the others have been lied to. So how do you bring down an enemy that is superior to you in technology and training? From the inside....

It is a must read!!
