Outlawed by the Republic he founded, Darrow wages a rogue war on Mercury hoping he can salvage the dream of Eo. But as he leaves death and destruction in his wake, is he still the hero who broke the chains? Or will another legend rise to take his place?

Lysander au Lune, heir in exile, is determined to bring peace. He must overcome or unite the treacherous Gold families and face down Darrow. Meanwhile, the Soveriegn Mustang campaigns to unite the Republic, former refugee Lyria stands accused of treason, and Darrow’s children must trust their future to Ephraim the thief.

As alliances shift, break, and re-form–and power is seized, lost, and reclaimed–every player is at risk, in a game of conquest that could turn the Rising into a new Dark Age.

Golden Son continues the saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom. Darrow’s kind have been betrayed and denied by their elitist masters, the Golds – and their only path to liberation is revolution. He becomes a Gold, infiltrating their privileged realm so that he can destroy it from within.

A lamb among wolves in a cruel world, Darrow finds friendship, respect, and even love –but also the wrath of powerful rivals. To win the war that will change humankind’s destiny, Darrow must confront treachery, overcome his desire for retribution – and strive not for violent revolt but a hopeful rebirth. The road ahead is fraught with danger, and Darrow must follow Eo’s principles of love and justice to free his people. He must live for more.

A decade ago, Darrow was the hero of arevolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But instead of peace and freedom,the Rising has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still beieves he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

Other destinies entwine with Darrow’s: Lydia, a Red girl fleeing a refugee camp, an ex-soldier broken by grief, and Lysander au Lune, heir-in-exile to the sovereign, who wanders the stars haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.

Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, murdered his wife and enslaved his people. Risking everything, Darrow has survived, climbing up the ranks of Society’s mightiest warriors, waiting patiently to unleash revolution. Finally, the time has come.

But devotion to honor and hunger for vengeance run deep. Darrow and his comrades face powerful enemies. To win, Darrow must inspire those shackled in darkness to break their chains, unmake the world and claim a destiny too long denied.

Red Rising is the thrilling first entry in the Red Rising Saga. Darrow has never seen the sky. He is a Red, a member of the lowly mining caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he willingly spends his life digging underground, believing his sacrifice will make the surface livable for future generations.

Then Darrow makes a horrible discovery. Humanity actually reached the surface generations ago. The Reds are slaves, in service to a decadent ruling class.

Longing for justice, driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow joins the resistance to destroy society from within. He will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies…even if he has to become one of them to do it.
