Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal, elitist future built on lies.
Now fully embedded amongst the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down society from within. It's a journey that will take him further than he's ever been before, but is Darrow truly willing to pay the price that rebellion demands?

"The writing is excellent and the story is better. This is one terrific fantasy book, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone." (Terry Brooks)
"A shot of adrenalin for your imagination." (Star Magazine)
really enjoyable, had me sobbing in parts. Can be a tad predictable and convenient times but still very good.
"Just as good as Bk 1."
Our hero adjusts to life amongst the Golds...Or Gods to some of the lesser colours. All the ups and downs of the first book are still there with continued similarities of a Greek Tragedy or corrupt Roman Empire waiting to be brought down from inside. Lots of fighting and not just the space gun kind nicely breaks up some of the politics romance and bromance. 5 stars :)
"Full of twists. Such a good book."
Full of twists. Such a good book. i don't't have the words to describe just how good. Brilliant quality audio and the narrator has a good voice for the book.
"Dax au Telemanus!"
I loved Red Rising, so this book had big shoes to fill. It suffered a little from middle book syndrome, too many characters and the none-inclusion of the institute, but overall a very good book. It's no red rising, but we'll see if Morning Star can take up the mantle. Ps the Telemanus family are the best.
"Quality middle book"
Really develops the story stared in book one. A gripping middle book! Must now jump straight onto book three.
"fantastic start, exceptional ending"
...but suffered slightly in the middle due to the scope of the story and amount of characters.
All in all a great listen and am moving straight on to the next book in the trilogy.
