Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1)
By: Pierce Brown
My Rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars
Live for more…
Well dang. I had high expectations.
Not high enough. Hold on while I pick the grit out of my teeth and rinse the taste of bile from my mouth.
They say it’s like Hunger Games, but it’s not. Hunger Games is the bunny slope. Red Rising is the double diamond. Closer to Lord of the Flies, mixed with a bit of Ender’s Game and sprinkled with Game of Thrones.
Much like the outstanding Choas Walking Trilogy, this first book of the Red Rising Trilogy has broken the mold for all things YA dystopian.
Outstanding. The bar has been raised.
Let’s see how book two holds up.
Violence and Language are dialed up pretty high.
Adults only. Hang on…this ride is awesome!
