    Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

    Very enjoyable with some quibbles

    I found the story well told and interesting. I found the character grew as the story developed. There was something close to real emotion in the book ..Show More »

    One of the best books I've ever read!!!

    Pierce is an author at the very top of his game. His handle on story, dialogue and pacing rivals that of George RR Martin. Golden Son is flawless in e..Show More »

    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?

    20 hours of listening in about 72 hours...

    a bit too good I'm still supposed to try and have a life... wasn't very easy until the book was done.

    Darrow would have lived in peace, but his enemies brought him war. The Gold overlords demanded his obedience, hanged his wife, and enslaved his people. But Darrow is determined to fight back. Risking everything to transform himself and breach Gold society, Darrow has battled to survive the cutthroat rivalries that breed Society's mightiest warriors, climbed the ranks, and waited patiently to unleash the revolution that will tear the hierarchy apart from within.

    A captivating and exhilarating space adventure!

    Without a doubt, the best trilogy I have ever read. Brown has catapulted himself into the upper echelons of literary greatness.
