Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gripping…Both author and lead character have cranked up the emotional stakes…charging the novel with the kind of dystopia-toppling action you’d expect in a trilogy ender, not a middle volume. On virtually every level, this is a sequel that hates sequels—a perfect fit for a hero who already defies the tropes. Grade A.” Entertainment Weekly
“Brown writes layered, flawed characters…but plot is his most breathtaking strength…Every action seems to flow into the next.” NPR
“One of the pleasures of author Pierce Brown’s world building is the juxtaposition of the primitive and high-tech…Brown amps up the tension by putting Darrow into ever greater physical and emotional conflict…Just like Red Rising, the first book in Brown’s, the end of Golden Son has me counting the days until the next (and final) book is released.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“The stakes are even higher than they were in Red Rising, and the twists and turns of the story are every bit as exciting. The jaw-dropper of an ending will leave readers hungry for the conclusion to Brown’s wholly original, completely thrilling saga.” Booklist (starred review)
“Narrator Tim Gerard Reynolds gives a masterful performance of a story that ranks among the best in science fiction…Reynolds can snap from smooth urbanity to deep, gritty tones, depending on the circumstance and which of the myriad characters he is voicing. He exudes a confidence acquired by having spent significant time in Darrow’s dangerous world, and his crisp diction ensures that not one moment of conflict is missed. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Dramatic…the rare middle book that loses almost no momentum as it sets up the final installment.” Publishers Weekly
“Guaranteed to captivate readers. He cleverly pens a well-crafted adventure, laced with tension and set in a dystopian world with a conflicted, intriguing rebel hero. Golden Son is one fantastic read!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

I don't typically like YA fiction, but this is pretty good

There are some YA fiction moments that make me cringe a little, but those moments are rare, and for the most part it's a really good sci fi series. Very soft, the technology is a little ridiculous / magical at times, but the characters are fun and interesting if a little one-dimensional, and the plot is fast-paced with good turns.

Narrator is amazing, just like in the first book.

How long can you hold your breath?!

The 2nd book in the trilogy leaves the first in the wake. Red rising was great and I wondered if the 2nd would be as good. It was better than the first and as of now my favorite in the series (might stay that way). You will want to start with the first book Red Rising and be prepared to hold your breath for Golden Son. A roller coaster ride of emotions, Pierce Brown has created a spectacular universe and Tim Gerard Reynolds' performance takes the story to another level. Do not hesitate, listen to this book. All the feels....
