Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1)

5/5 stars

Red Rising (Red Rising Trilogy, #1) by Pierce Brown

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.

Older teens only.
